Dog Areas in Fleming Island

Fleming Island is a picturesque, family-orientated area in Florida. It's not densely populated, which makes it perfect for those looking for a quiet vacation destination that's not too far from Florida's muttropolitan areas, like Jacksonville and Gainesville.

As far as canine care is concerned, Fleming Island is pretty much perfect for our furry friends. There are 4 major veterinary practices in the area, some of which have an after-hours emergency number.

Fleming Island also boasts 7 restaurants and eateries which welcome dogs at their outdoor seating areas. Dining outdoors is ideal in most parts of Florida, particularly from May to September, and Fleming Island is no exception. But it's worth noting that it can get pretty hot in the summer months, so be sure to bring plenty of water along for your adventures here.

You'll find several dog parks in nearby Jacksonville, just a half-hour drive away, as well as several pet-friendly lodging options, including hotels, R.V. campsites, and some AirBnB rentals. Jacksonville and other nearby cities are, unsurprisingly, chock full of sports bars and other late-night venues, many of which receive excellent reviews from other thirsty travelers.

Even though you may need to do some travelling to find a dog park and larger outdoor amenities, Fleming Island is a lovely place to live or just hang out with your doggie dude/dudette.

    #1 Downtown Jacksonville

    Jacksonville is the largest city in the U.S. to adopt a no-kill pet shelter policy, so it's clear this city loves its dogs. Downtown Jacksonville is no exception -- this hip, densely-populated waterfront area is incredibly dog-friendly! There's a 3-mile riverside walk you can take your furry buddy on, or you could visit the off-leash Riverside Park with its well-shaded separate areas for small and large pooches. The park has plenty of baggie dispensers and trash cans, but you'll need to bring your own water as none is provided in the park. Although there is a strict "no dogs in restaurants" policy across the state of Florida, almost all of Downtown's restaurants have ample outdoor seating where your canine companion is more than welcome. Overall, this neighborhood is the perfect spot for you and your furry friend!

    #2 Downtown Saint Augustine

    If it’s some beautiful historical city life you and your canine companion are after, then Downtown St. Augustine is the place to be! This charming coastal city is steeped in history and full of pawesome attractions. In keeping with Florida’s strong urban park policy, there is a beautiful central park here for you and your bounding buddy to enjoy. There is also the Pup Crawl (a pet-friendly pub crawl), the Bone Appetite food tour, and the Pawsitivity walking tour for you and your Fido to enjoy. Each of these tours has a ‘pup stop’ facility to tend to the needs of your barking buddy. There is also a good selection of pet stores here, including the excellently named Faux Paws.

    #3 Central

    In keeping with Florida’s excellent dog-friendly attitude, Downtown Gainesville loves its dogs just as much as other muttropolitan areas of the state. Downtown is a cultural hot-spot in this beautiful city, home to a whole area (located at South Main) full of art galleries and interesting local boutique shops. You don’t have to worry about your furry friend's comfort here; most of the restaurants in this area have outside seating, and many are happy to supply a water bowl for your canine companion. After stuffing your faces, work off those extra calories at Haisley Lynch Park, downtown's only off-leash dog park. Explore the area on foot to find other Fido-friendly pit stops!

    #4 Ponte Vedra Beach

    Ponte Vedra Beach, although more densely populated than nearby St. Augustine, has fewer dog-friendly amenities. It does, however, have an excellent dog park, which includes a section for large and small dogs (over and under 25 lbs.), so no need to worry about any ruffhousing from bigger dogs if your fetching friend is of a diminutive stature. There are also 10 pet-friendly hotels, 16 pet-friendly restaurants, 2 stunning beaches, and a large nature reserve (your bounding buddy’s got to stay on their leash in this one, though). You'll also find a veterinary clinic here to take care of your furry friend. Although not as pet-friendly as its neighbor, Ponte Vedra Beach is still a really pawesome place to visit!

The park has strict guidelines and safety procedures for new visitors, so no need to worry about your pets’ safety.
