I have been working with dogs for the past 5 years and plan on pursuing it for the rest of my life. My career has taken me from coast to coast (California-North Carolina) working at daycares, along side numerous trainers, and transporting/coordinating with rescue groups. I have a pup of my own and understand the importance and priority of keeping our companions safe while getting much needed exercise.

Dog Walking in Holmes Beach

Holmes Beach is a city of more than 4,000 people on Anna Maria Island in Manatee County, Florida. Of the three communities on Anna Maria Island, Holmes Beach is the largest. There are three miles of beautiful white sand beaches in Holmes Beach, and it's just south of the big city of Tampa Bay. This area is popular with tourists who come to enjoy the emerald water of the Gulf Coast and the prime fishing spots, but it's also a great spot to call home all year round. Dog owners in Holmes Beach love that the sunny weather means it's always a good time to go for a dog walk, and there are plenty of dog-friendly activities nearby!

If you're looking for a dog-friendly activity that's more low-key than a trip to the dog park, stop into Lobstahs on Gulf Drive in Holmes Beach. This casual restaurant has a large, wraparound deck with several dog-friendly tables. Of course, you can dine on lobster and other seafood options at Lobstahs, but they also serve plenty of non-seafood dishes like hamburgers, tacos, and mac and cheese. Now that your appetite is satisfied, it's time to head out for another adventure with your dog in Holmes Beach!
