Okay, I am new to Florida so call me crazy about how surprised I am at how dog friendly the Tampa Bay area is! I have never seen anything like it. In one month, I have seen advertisements for “Yappy Hour” Dog friendly bars, lounges, dog parks, and even restaurants with dog treats and doggie meals. There’s even a place that lets you hang outside on the patio furniture with your dog while enjoying live music!
A lot of other cites and states do not have dog parks and do not allow dogs in eating establishments indoors or out. It’s also very difficult to rent an apartment if you are a dog owner in many communities.
