Dog Walking in Venice Gardens

A census-designated place in Sarasota County, Florida, Venice Gardens is a welcome reprieve from the hustle and bustle of some of the more populated areas in the county. The scenery is nothing to turn your snout up at, and the people are known to be exceptionally friendly, both to humans and canines!

While there’s not a lot to do in the central area of Venice Gardens, it’s so close to neighboring cities like Sarasota and Venice that it’s the perfect base location for you to book a hotel. If you happen to live in this beautiful location, maybe you’re just looking for some local activities. Look no further! For starters, if you’re willing to make the drive to nearby Sarasota, you’ll have a number of options to choose from. 

One destination worth checking out is the Red Bug Slough Reserve, where there are a number of dog-friendly trails for all experience levels, as well as a nice, cool pond in the center of the reserve, where your dog can dive in and paddle away. You’ll need to bring some fresh drinking water, as well as your trusty collapsible water bowl, but there are doggy waste bags provided for you.

If your pup is a regular beach bum, you’ll be happy to know there’s a nice sunny beach just a short distance away in Golden Gate. Bay Front Park is a perfectly sandy oceanside park where your pup is free to tiptoe through the tides and walk alongside their master to enjoy that nice ocean breeze. You’ll need to keep your pup on a leash, but that won’t stop you from having a good time. Just be sure to bring plenty of drinking water, and be prepared to clean up any messes your pup may make. Doggy waste bags are a must!

After a long day, there’s no better way to wind down than with a cold beer and a slice of tasty pizza. That’s why you should make your way to Sarasota Springs, home to Evie's Tavern and Grill.

They’ll get tons of pawsitive attention while you chug a pint and enjoy the beautiful Sarasota sunset. After all, you won’t want to drink alone -- and who better to join you than man’s best friend?
