Dog Friendly Beaches & Parks in Miami Beach
If you haven’t noticed, residents of Miami Beach love their four-legged friends. Everywhere we turn there is a French Bulldog, Chihuahua or an adorable mutt strutting down the streets. The city and businesses of Miami Beach welcome these cute and cuddly pups in many restaurants, shops, parks, condominiums and apartments. Miami Beach is devoted to increasing the quality of the residents’ life and many studies show that pets keep us all healthier and happier.
Currently Miami Beach has eight dog parks and dog play areas. Be sure that your pets arrive on a leash, have current tags and are up-to-date with their vaccines. Have fun building community with your fellow Miami Beach neighbors while giving your dog some much-deserved socializing and play time.
