Did you know that Pensacola has been long considered a pet-friendly city? It’s even been named so by National Geographic Travel!


With moderate weather nearly year-round, there are so many places to take your dogs while you enjoy a pint or a pop.

Pensacola has a number of dog-friendly hotels, eateries, trails, and parks to keep you and your canine companion happy. Check out Visit Pensacola’s dog-friendly site for more information.

In Pensacola and Pensacola Beach alone, there are multiple outdoor options for your four-legged pets. There are two dog beaches at the eastern and western ends of Pensacola Beach. You can also find spots at Bayview Park, Ashton Brosnaham, Bill Dickson Park and Boat Ramp, and Perdido Key River Road Park. Last year, the city opened the Kiwanis dog park at 1801 W. Romana Street.

If you’re out and about with your paw partner, take a picture and post it with the tag #experiencepcola so we can all see how much fun you have together.

If you’re looking for restaurants and other establishments that are pet friendly, try the Bring Fido app or website. Simply put in Pensacola, FL, or Pensacola Beach, FL in the search bar open up a pet-friendly paradise.

If you are looking for ways to connect with other dog owners, consider starting a group on the website Meetup. 

Another great social media page is WolfGang Pensacola. WolfGang recently hosted the Pawdi Gras, which was a wild success! In addition to that event, they host other events and plan things like dog birthday parties, pup crawls, and much more.
