Dog Friendly Places in St. Augustine

Dog Friendly

Enjoy St. Augustine and St. Johns County with your dog. (Will cats be next?)

On Monday, July 6, 2009 the St. Augustine Beach City Commission passed Ordinance 09-08, which amends the city's land development regulations to allow four-legged canine companions in outside serving areas of Beach restaurants.

St. Augustine, Ponte Vedra & The Beaches Visitors and Convention Bureau (VCB) announced that a new website devoted to both resident and visitor dog lovers is about to be launched.  Among its many features will be a listing of dog-friendly attractions, restaurants and hotels in the St. Augustine area.  Here is a list of some of the places that are already dog-friendly. I look forward to updating this list based on input from the VCB.
