New Year, New Places For You & Your Furry Friend!

Now that 2017 is here, the resolutions have begun.

Why not include your pup in on your resolutions, and visit some local dog-friendly establishments that you haven’t been to before?

Thankfully the old saying “dogs are a man’s best friend” isn’t being taken lightly in the Tampa and St. Petersburg area. The idea of us having our best fur friend in social settings is no longer just a crazy wish for every dog lover, but a real possibility!
