Great place to take a dog that likes water. The place is very pretty for everyone. There is even a dog shower to rinse the sand off after romping on the beach.

Nothing like the open dog beach up in Venice, but it's secluded and deep in nature. Depending on the tide, you might have to wade ankle to knee deep water, but the dog are is spread out, quite and a great place for the dogs...More

Dog Beach was our favorite place we visited in Southwest Florida. There were other dog-friendly beaches, but this is the only OFF-LEASH beach, and our dogs loved it. The other dogs (and owners) were all well-behaved. We were there as the tide was coming in,...More

The Dog house has some of the best food on the beach. This little stand has great burgers, sandwiches and yummy fries. Try the daily specials they are fantastic. There is only out door seating. The staff is friendly and you will love it.
