Doggies – Bark no more at Destin and South Walton Beach towns. There are many Destin Pet Friendly Rentals available! And this includes all you cat lovers, like myself! 🙂
As many of the dog owners of this world know, you are NOT always welcome in certain areas and places if you have your “best friend” with you. Well fear no more rejection with your pal woof- woof, or Muffy the cat! I have found some pet friendly rentals in Destin FL that are doggie and kitty friendly and even accommodating.
Right now, as I speak, the town of Destin and some of its private citizens are raising money to have a Destin Dog Park come to fruition on 1 ½ acres of land, situated on the corner of Commons Drive and Indian Bayou Trail. Some of the amenities the in the first phase will include benches, trash stations and a water station. Some people have requested shade trees or a shaded area, water play-dog pool, and a drinking water fountain. The second phase will be for smaller dogs.
Walton County has donated 2 acres of property off J.D. Miller Road, near the U.S. 331 bridge, to Bark Park Inc. for their dog park. Bark Park, Inc. was founded in 2002 specifically to establish a dog park in Walton County and has been open since 2006.
If you’re looking for Destin pet friendly beaches, well…it’s not going to happen…although I have seen dogs on the beach during off season…BUT I found out that Okaloosa County, Bay County and the City of Destin do not allow pets on the beach.
However our lovely beaches of South Walton County allows only property owners of South Walton County to obtain beach pet permits. Call 850.892.8156.
