Oliver Terrace is a section of single-family homes running from the Halifax River to the beach. No matter where you live on the street, you are never more than a ten-minute walk from the the sandy coastline and 23 miles open space for the whole family, including your dog, to enjoy.
The nearest restaurants are a few blocks north and just to the south on A1A. Adam's Egg offers home cooking style meals and healthy options. You also live right next door to the Daytona Beach Lenox Playground where you can take your pup for a bit of a romp if you wish. However, if you do, be sure they are on a leash at all times and that you have an ample supply of bags to clean up.
Living this close to the beach also means being able to take full advantage of the amazing summer weather here, especially during the early morning before it gets too hot.
When it comes to finding places to take you pup for walks, you will find the ground here is incredibly flat and has little to offer in the way challenge. However, if your pup happens to be a little pudgy, a young puppy just starting out, or an elderly dog with arthritis, the flat terrain can be a blessing.
With this type of ground to walk on, very little stress is put on your dog's paws, joints, and muscles. For a younger dog, this will help them build up strength and stamina. For a pudgeball, you can start slowly and add more distance as the excess weight starts to come off. The flat ground may also let an older pooch keep walking far longer than hilly terrain would, helping them stay healthy and active.
Be sure you take your walks early in the morning before the ground has time to become too hot for Fido to walk comfortably.
To start with, there is the Lenox playground that is big enough for you and your pup to run around. However, a much better choice lies at the east end of the street. This is, of course, the World's Most Famous Beach.
The beach offers the perfect place for you, Fido, and the rest of the family to get in some good, healthy exercise. You have your choice of terrain out here. On one side, you have miles of soft sand that always seems to suck your feet in deeper every time you take a step. Walking in the soft sand can be very challenging, giving your legs and your pup's limbs a good workout.
Alternatively, you can walk over by the water where the sand is hard packed and much easier to stroll on. Don't forget to take out a little time to play with your pooch in the surf!
