Dog Beach was our favorite place we visited in Southwest Florida. There were other dog-friendly beaches, but this is the only OFF-LEASH beach, and our dogs loved it. The other dogs (and owners) were all well-behaved. We were there as the tide was coming in,...More

The Dog house has some of the best food on the beach. This little stand has great burgers, sandwiches and yummy fries. Try the daily specials they are fantastic. There is only out door seating. The staff is friendly and you will love it.

I read some of the complaints about dog "poop." Give me a break. It's a dog beach where lots of dogs come to swim. Having said that, it's a wonderful place to take your dog for a fun swim. Even at high tide, just consider...More

La Quinta, see below
We have 2 dogs and are desperately trying to find pet-friendly vacation villas in the area. We are staying in Orlando now but we will be going back to Canada in a couple of weeks and we would like to reserve for next year asap. Can you please recommend any agents or web sites which we could contact. Thank you.
