Vacationing with your dog in Orlando may be easier than you think. Orlando has 20 different dog-friendly activities, including doggy bakeries, dog parks that are better than any human playground, and even a variety of hotels and home rentals that accommodate dogs. You might think that this city is all about amusement parks, but it could be the perfect place to take your dog instead of your kids. But by the time you end up in a wine bar with your dog for “yappy hour,” you will want to come to Orlando with your dog every year.
Dine with Your Dog
Vacationing is all about treating yourself, so after getting some treats of your own, head to Woofgang bakery for your furry friend. If you have a car, make sure to take a 45-minute drive to the free Yappy hour at the Wine Den in Mount Dora. Vacationing with your dog in Orlando also offers tons of options for a date night with the dog. ORLANDO TOURIST TIP: If your dog ends up eating something that he or she is allergic to, it’s important to bring along some antihistamines in a small backpack, along with a cold compress in case your dog gets a minor injury, and bandages for cuts and scrapes.
Get Social While Vacationing With Your Dog In Orlando
If Orlando’s dog parks don’t outnumber the human ones, they do certainly outdo them. Constitution Green dog park, for instance, is planning to add a dog-wash. There are also several dog-friendly beaches near Orlando where you can tire your pup out with a few rounds of frisbee. Going outside and exploring new places is not only a good way to meet new playmates, it is also important so that heavier dogs can shed some weight. Especially if you are going to treat them at the dog bakery beforehand.
Go to an Amusement Park?
Dinosaur Park may not be the amusement park you think of when you’re headed to Orlando, but it is just as entertaining and free for dogs. Even if vacationing with your dog in Orlando has Disney in the plans, there are kennels where attendants walk, cuddle, and even give ice cream breaks to your dog. If your dog needs medication, an attendant will take care of that for a $2 fee.
Relax and Have Fun
Going on vacation should be fun, even though you have the added responsibility of a dog. As long as you plan ahead and take your dog to places that can accommodate pets, and even make your dog’s vacation a blast, everything should be fine. There is no reason to leave your dog behind. Vacation with your dog the next time that you go to Orlando.
