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 :).

Dog Walking in Odessa

Odessa sits on the southern border of Pasco County in Florida, and just like the surrounding area, this small community is chock full of lakes and ponds. It used to be mostly ranching and horse properties, but has grown in size as nearby Tampa’s population has increased. Not only do local pups get to live under the warm Florida sunshine, they also have access to hours of outdoor fun.  

Dogs living in Odessa will tell you that the Odessa Community Park is a pawsome place to get some fresh air and exercise. This park sprawls over 25 acres and has amenities like sport courts, ball fields, playgrounds and even a Community Center. But your pup will be more interested in the open space and walking areas. Be sure to take her for a stroll on the boardwalk so she can enjoy the lush natural setting.

If your furry BFF is feeling under the weather, take comfort in knowing that Odessa is home to three top notch veterinary clinics. Starkey Ranch Animal Hospital is well equipped to handle all kinds of canine maladies, as is the Veterinary Rehabilitation and Wellness Center. Lakeside Animal Hospital offers acupuncture for pups with aches and pains. If your pal just needs a vaccine or two, head over to Vetco. They’ll take care of her in no time.

If your pooch needs to rest her paws, relax on one of the many benches along the trail. Interpretive signs highlight the history and ecology of the trail, so you can learn a thing or two. This trail is frequented by cyclists, so be sure to keep your pal on leash.
