Dog Walking in Palmetto

You'll most certainly find paw-adise in the beautiful coastal town of Palmetto, Florida. The city is tucked between the Terra Ceia Bay, a body of water emptying out into the Gulf of Mexico and the Manatee River, which separates Palmetto with Bradenton, the city's neighbor to the south. The cerulean waterways and the lush green of the palm trees keep folks, both canine and human, flocking down to enjoy the tropical climate. There are plenty of waterfront homes, golf courses, and, for the doggos, over 60 acres of green space sprinkled throughout Palmetto. This jewel in the crown of the Sunshine State has been glowing with Old Florida heritage since the late 1800s. Citizen canines have been barking about how great Palmetto is ever since!

Pet owners share their dogs' adoration of Palmetto. Within a five-minute drive, there are 2 veterinarians, 12 city-owned parks, and a pet shop down the road. Doggie parents have everything they need to keep their pups in great shape! Whether you're on vacation or you're a local, there are some delicious tropical digs that have an open-door policy for dogs. Since Palmetto sits in equatorial land, most restaurants have an outdoor wooden patio where you'll hear Jimmy Buffet and see tails wagging!

Dogs do less barking and more basking in the sun in this beautiful city!
