Love for a pet is unlike any other. They would do anything for you and vice versa. You want to spend as much time with them as possible, but where is there to go?
We put together this list of pet friendly spots in Naples that accept you and your four legged friend. These include the beach, restaurants, and stores. Where will you take your pet first?
The first spot you’d think to take your pooch is to a local dog park. Luckily Naples is home to a few.
Central Bark aka City of Naples Dog Park
This cleverly named dog park is located at Riverside Circle near the intersection of Goodlette-Frank Road and Central Avenue. It’s complete with 2.5 acres of room to roam as well as water fountains, dog wash stations and areas separated for big and small dogs.
Located in Veterans Community Park in North Naples, this dog park is one of the most popular. The park is open from 7:30am to dusk, and has an area for small dogs and one for bigger breeds.
Despite the large number of beaches in Naples, not many allow you to bring your dog. Keeywadin Island lets you bring your pooch as long as they are leashed. You’ll need a boat to get to the island, and there are no facilites. But come during a weekday when we’re not in season and you’ll have the island to yourself.
It’s referred to as the dog beach. It’s the only one in the area that allows dogs and doesn’t require a boat to reach. It’s just north of Bonita Beach and south of Lover’s Key State Beach Park. It’s even off leash!
This luxury pet boutique is right at home on 5th Avenue South. You can find luxury designer items for your pet like Gucci Pet, Burberry Pet, and more. Bring in your four-legged friend to truly enjoy the store.
Mercato is a favorite destination for humans and dogs alike. Many restaurants will allow you to dine with your dog on the patio, and quite a few shops including Charming Charlie’s, Nordstrom Rack, and Gallery on Fifth, even allow you to bring in your pet.
Formerly located at The Shoppes at Naples Bay Resort, this boutique caters to the pet who loves having a full closet. The store is relocating to a larger space, so check their website to find out when they re-open.
Dog-Friendly Patios at Mercato
There are over a dozen restaurants that allow you to dine with your pet on the patio including Masa, Naples Flatbread, Taps, The Capital Grille, and many more.
Fit & Fuel Cafe
This cafe is located right next to the Naples Cyclery at the Pavilion Shopping Center. They allow for outdoor seating with dogs and even have a water bowl outside to keep them hydrated.
M Waterfront Grille
Want something a little more upscale? Dine with your pup outside at this restaurant at the Village on Venetian Bay.
