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 :). With that being said, when I am taking care of your pup, they will also get the undivided T.L.C. that all pups deserves. In 2012, I became an organizer of a Meetup group called 'Charlotte Small Dog Society'. We were mainly a social group but we also volunteered and occasionally I would pup-sit some of the members pups. Every pup deserves a great life/experience. I'll make sure they're time with me is nothing less than fun-filled!

Dog Walking in Valrico

When it comes to pets, most people in Florida prefer the company of a dog over a cat. Only 27.3% of the households in the state of Florida own one or more cats. Valrico, which is located only 16 miles from Tampa, Florida, is no exception. There are several parks in the region for dog owners to take their dogs for a much-needed walk.

Valrico, Florida, does not have its own dog park. Luckily the Mango Dog Park is only a short drive away. This off-leash dog park has a fenced surface area of 5 acres and is double gated which means dogs can not trail off easily. There is a separated area specifically for small dogs, water fountain, washing station, hitching post, shelters, picnic tables and waste stations.

Another option that is not too far away from Valrico is Plant City Dog Park. This park is significantly smaller but offers all the amenities one comes to expect from an off-leash dog park. The park is equipped with a double gate entry system, waste bag dispensers, benches, shaded areas and water fountains.

Dog owners that want to truly embrace nature should take a look at Dover Sydney Park. This recreational park is back-to-basics. The nature trails have a total length of 7 miles. An excellent way to get away from society for a few hours and be surrounded by green. Dogs have to be leashed.

Davis Island Dog Park is located on Davis Island, just 30 minutes from Valrico. Davis Island offers you and your dog a howling adventure for the day or the weekend. You will be happy to hear that this is actually two parks in one. On one side of the street, there is your typical fenced in dog park. The other side of the road is a dog beach! This beach is pawfect for splashing and playing in the water. Just be sure that you check the water quality before you allow Fido to go for an afternoon swim.

It’s always game time in Florida! Check out JF Kicks for the pawfect place for you and your dog to watch the game on the big screen. Fido can bark along with the cheers and jeers of the fans while enjoying dishes made just for him. If you go on a night that doesn’t have a game, you will be entertained with live music. The whole patio is set up for you and your fur babies to spend time and enjoy a meal together, no matter what else is going on. This fur-iendly restaurant only asks that Fido stays on a leash for the duration of your visit.

In just under 30 minutes, you can get from Valrico to the Riverwalk Court in Tampa. Here, there are lots of new things to see, smell, and explore. One great place to take your dog to dinner at is Sail Pavilion on the Riverwalk. This is an outside pavilion area that gives you a full view of city and water at every point. The food is simple -- sandwiches and soups -- but it well worth it to take in the city scenery with your dog on his leash. There are even water dishes available at this restaurant -- you’ll just need to fill one up for Fido and let him enjoy it at one of the outdoor tables.

If you go 40 miles west of Valrico, you will find a two-acre dog park called Lutz Dog Park. The two dog areas have their own entrances for dogs of varying sizes and are separated by a good sized pond. You will be happy to know that both areas have the same amenities for both you and your dog. Both sides are off-leash, and include time-out spots for misbehaving pups, or for those who just need a break from their new fur-iends. When Fido gets tired of playing, you should definitely take him for a casual stroll along the nature trail paths the wind around the area.

Get your dog, get his leash, and get in the car! Take the 35-minute drive from Valrico to Lakeland so that you can enjoy some time at DiOGi Park at Loyce E. Harpe Park. Start your day by going for an on-leash walk through the park. Then, go visit the off-leash areas, where Fido can strut his stuff on the agility equipment, meet new friends, or just run and play fetch with his favorite human(s). This park is lacking nothing you and your dog may need while there, including cleaning stations and clean watering stations. The safety and cleanliness make it worth the ride.
