Plenty of places in Perdido Key are pet-friendly - including Perdido Key rentals!

If your family just doesn't feel right without its canine member, planning a vacation at Perdido Key rentals is the best choice for you. In this Florida town, there are plenty of pet-friendly places so you can enjoy your trip with your dog right there with you.

Bring your pooch on vacation to Perdido Key

Looking to take a family vacation? Setting off on a tropical trip with your spouse and kids is great, but anyone who has a pet knows that when the family dog isn't around, it just feels like something is missing. Fortunately, when you rent some Perdido Key beach houses, you can bring Fido along with you. 

Having the family dog staying with you is one thing - being able to take him out and about during your stay is another. Fortunately, there are plenty of dog-friendly activities to do in Perdido Key, so you don't have to worry about leaving your furry friend out of your vacation. 

Take a hike

Plenty of places in Perdido Key are pet-friendly - including Perdido Key rentals!There are few things dogs love more than trekking through the woods. That is why a day trip to Big Lagoon State Park is a perfect activity for families with canine companions. Unlike the other nearby park in Perdido Key, the Gulf Islands National Seashore, Big Lagoon is a state park, and domestic pets are permitted in all Florida state parks. 

As long as you keep Fido on a leash and clean up after him, you can enjoy the park's many amenities together, including hiking along Sand Pine Trail, picnicking near Long Pond or Grand Lagoon and even boating off West Beach. 

Go out to dinner

Of course, when you cook dinner at home in the full kitchen of your Perdido Key rental, Fido can accompany you when you choose a dog-friendly house. But you can also take your furry family member out on the town! Sunset Grill on Canal A Way in Perdido Key boasts more than just delicious food and spectacular sunsets - it allows dogs. In fact, if you and Fido show up without a leash, they'll provide a complimentary one. Make sure your pooch interacts well with other dogs before coming, though - lots of pets tend to dine here with their owners. 

Play on the beach

Yes, you read that correctly - your pup can join the family fun on the beach in Perdido Key, but only in certain places. Starting in May 2013, the county is testing out a new policy regarding dogs on beaches. Canines will be allowed on Beach Access 2 and River Road in Perdido Key. From May through September, owners can bring their dogs to the beach between 7 a.m. and 10 a.m., and then from October through April, they can play from sunrise to 10 a.m.

Dogs must be leashed during these times, but it's still a great opportunity to take a morning run with Fido or bring the whole family for a relaxing walk on the beach. Of course, you will want to have supplies to clean up after your dog during these walks, and make sure he is well behaved so the county is more inclined to make this a permanent policy! 

Other than these beach times, dogs are generally not allowed on beaches in Florida. You can always walk your pooch along Perdido Key Drive and enjoy much of the same scenery, as this avenue runs parallel to the beach.
