Hello. Isn't this a perfect solution? Your dog wants to walk and so do I! While my children are grown and I enjoy spending time with my grandchildren, I still find there is plenty of time on my hands. I spend some of this time going for a walk and enjoying the outdoors. I'd love to share some of that outdoor time with your fur baby. I've had dogs in my life as long as I can remember. I'm experienced with everything from a small pug, Jack Russell and beagles to larger breeds like a Catahoula, shepherd or bully breeds. I really have no preference or favorite type of dog because, just like people, each dog brings it's own personality and gift to the relationship. I'm sure your pup and I could enjoy a nice walk together.

I love animals. They have been a part of my life since I was born. My first dog, Jojo was so jealous of me when my parents brought me home that he got very depressed, but we soon became best friends and he lived with us until I was about 10 years old. I used to live on a farm in Canada and was surrounded by dogs, horses, cats, and cows. I love them all.

“In a perfect world every dog would have a home!”

Dogs are friends Fur-Ever! 7 years ago my 17 year old brought home a 3 month old puppy & promised she’d care for it lol, she was too busy. The pup became mine which took me here. So we rented every video & bought every book on dogs. 1 year ago, I wanted to put into practice what I learned. I incorporated these into my dog walking. The “dog days “ of summer can be “wuff” in Florida, so I carry a collapsible bowl & plenty of water at all times. I run with dogs, to release some energy. I love dogs

Dog Walking in Melbourne

Grab the doggie waste bags and your dog’s favorite toy, and then head on over to Wickham Dog Park on Parkway Drive. Please have your dog leashed while entering and exiting the park, but feel free to let them run leash-free while they’re there. Wickham Dog Park has a separate area for small breeds and puppies, so there’s no need to worry about your pup being intimidated by a dog of a larger breed.

Your child wants to swing, but your dog wants to go for a walk…now what? Simple! You pack up the gang and go to Pineapple Park on Pineapple Avenue. This park is dog-friendly (as long as they’re on their leashes) and even offers waste bags so owners can easily do their part to keep Pineapple Park beautiful. Pineapple Park also has a swing set, bathrooms, picnic areas, and a gazebo.

If you’re on the lookout for a beautiful, pet-friendly hotel, check out the Crane Creek Inn on East Melbourne Avenue. Only certain rooms are pet-friendly, so be sure to double-check that your desired room allows pets before you book it. The staff is very kind and accommodating to even the most skittish of pets (sometimes, they even make extra bacon in the morning especially for your pup!). As if being pet-friendly and offering breakfast wasn’t enough, Crane Creek Inn also has a big movie library too!

Your four-legged friend will thank you for making the five minute drive to North Indialantic, located just northeast of Melbourne, for one reason: Canova Dog Beach. This section of the beach, specifically made for dogs, is an on-leash park. Have some fun playing in the water with your pup, and when you’re done, head over to one of the picnic tables to enjoy a meal; there’s even a grill if you’d like to cook your food there.
