Sarasota County offers two types of areas where you and your dog can walk and play. They are categorized as “Dog-Friendly” or “Dog Parks.”

Dog-Friendly Parks are areas where your dog must be kept on a 6-foot leash at all times.

Dog Parks are areas where your dog can play and exercise off-leash in a controlled environment under the supervision of their owner.

  • The only beach where dogs are allowed is Brohard Beach Paw Park in Venice.
  • Dog owners are responsible for supervision and pick up after their dog at all locations.
