“Who can honestly say they love their job? I CAN!”

I have been an animal lover since I can remember. As a child, we always had at least one dog and at least one cat at home, as well as a family horse. Currently, I have four fur babies (in addition to my human son), and a few scaly and amphibious ones, too! All of my fur babies are rescues, and all are considered part of the family. I look forward to treating your fur baby as I do my own: spoiling him or her with the love and affection that they deserve in your absence. ~Melisa

Dog Walking in New Port Richey

Just a short distance from the Gulf of Mexico, New Port Richey, Florida is a great place for dogs, and pets of all sorts.

The city of Fort Richey maintains four parks that allow dogs. Three of them, Cotee Park, Sims Park and Orange Lake Park are basically for humans, but dogs can tag along if they are kept on leashes. Meadows Dog Park has places for humans to play, but it has a designated area set aside just for dogs.

The Jay B. Starkey Wilderness Park Overview, a system of nature trails that cover over 8,000 acres of wilderness, welcomes pets and their owners. Walk, run, or ride your bike with your faithful companion by your side. However, dogs must be kept on leashes at all times, are allowed only in the day-use areas, and owners must pick up after them.

Several restaurants in New Port Richey welcome dogs on their outdoor patios and decks. They include Caposey’s Whole Works Restaurant, Winghouse, Dairy Queen, Estela’s Mexican Restaurant and Fitzgerald’s.

A number of motels in New Port Richey, such as A Frame Resort, River Side Inn, Blue Heron, and Downtown Riverfront Cottage, welcome pets. River Side Inn charges a low, pet-friendly fee of only $6.42 per night for any size pets. Be sure to call ahead to check each business’s current pet policy.

Four city parks, miles and miles of wilderness trails, and pet-friendly businesses are some of the reasons dogs, and their owners, love New Port Richey.
