Hello Pup-moms and Pup-dads! My name is Larrielle. I am a proud mother of a Shih Tzu Bentley. Bentley is the LOVE of my life! I basically live for him :). With that being said, when I am taking care of your pup, they will also get the undivided T.L.C. that all pups deserves. In 2012, I became an organizer of a Meetup group called 'Charlotte Small Dog Society'. We were mainly a social group but we also volunteered and occasionally I would pup-sit some of the members pups. Every pup deserves a great life/experience. I'll make sure they're time with me is nothing less than fun-filled!

Dog Walking in Gibsonton

Sunny, shoreside, and sometimes perplexing, Gibsonton, FL has an interesting history. Like many Florida areas, Gibsonton grew as a wintering town, but while some places were built for snowbirds, "Gibtown" developed into a seasonal home for sideshow performers, circus showmen, and carnival workers. Creating a winter retreat for clowns was no small feat, but the performers prevailed, and the trap-ezey living in Gibsonton attracted acts such as Percilla the Monkey Girl, Lobster Boy, Al Tomaimi the Giant and Inferno the Fire Eater. The unique physical needs of some of the inhabitants have made the town a pretty accessible place!

Of course, the popularity of sideshows and circus acts greatly declined during the latter half of the twentieth century. Though some of the old guard remain, and the International Showman’s Association is still based in town, these days, Gibtown is much like any Tampa suburb -- sleepy, safe, and home to a lot of retirees (who’ve had very interesting careers).

There’s no designated dog park in Gibsonton, but that doesn’t mean that you and your buddy are bound to be bored! Outdoorsy pups will be glad to know that there’s a nature reserve just on the edge of town. And if your doggo needs to run free, don’t fret -- you’ll find some pawesome off-leash areas a little further afield!

Since Golden Aster Scrub Nature Preserve is right on your doorstep in Gibsonton, it’d be a huge faux paw not to check it out! You and your pooch will have several, relatively flat trails to choose from, winding through scrubland, oak-lined stretches, palmettos and two different but equally serene lakes. It’s hard to believe that the preserve is right next to the interstate! Remember to bring water and waste bags -- there’s a restroom for humans, too, and a picnic table by one of the lakes. Careful, though -- the area doesn’t get much shade, so it might be wise to go in the morning or early evening.

Just a ten-minute drive from Gibsonton, the Apollo Beach neighborhood of Andalucia sits on a sandbar just off the coast. The area really is a mutts-visit, though -- it’s home to the fantastic Apollo Beach Preserve, one of the few beaches nearby that welcomes wagging tails with open arms! Your pooch will need to be leashed, of course, but they’re still welcome to splash about in the surf -- if your fur-baby likes to swim, you might consider bringing a longline. If water isn’t your buddy’s bag, you two can still stroll on the sand and gaze out over the Atlantic -- you might even spot some manatees!

Golf and Sea Village of Apollo Beach is… well, it’s exactly what it sounds like. Saltwater channels run along neighborhood streets, and on the right day, you’re likely to see more golf carts than cars. It’s also home to the Apollo Beach Dog Park, a pawfect place to let your four-legged pal lose the leash! There’s enough room in both the large and small dog areas for even the most energetic fur-ball to tire themselves out in, and bags and water are provided. Fitter furry friends might also be glad to know that there’s a doggy obstacle course for some extra canine cardio!

Looking for somewhere you and your buddy can chow down? Why not hop in the car and take the twelve-minute drive to Summerview Oaks? You’ll find a bunch of restaurants here that welcome wagging tails with open arms. If you’ve got a taste for chicken tenders, try PDQ -- their goujons are legendary, and they cater to canines outside. For an authentic Cuban experience, check out the furrific Little Habana Cafe, where doggy diners can join at outdoor tables. Be sure to try the Pollo Asada! Or, if you’re mad for Mexican, stop in for chicken tortilla soup at Mi Casa, where you and your furry friend can dine al fresco.

Make no bones about it -- the Family Drive-in Theater in Ruskin is fantastically fur-friendly! The price isn’t too bad, either -- you can see two films for $6, and furry film buffs go free! Your doggo will need to be leashed of course, but the complimentary dog treat that comes with your popcorn might make up for it. Ruskin also has its very own dog park! A trip to Dr. Ott’s Dog Park is sure to get even the most "melan-collie" pup’s tail wagging -- there’s lots of space to run around in, a separate small dog area, and even doggy pools for your fur-baby to cool down in.
