My wife and I are planning our third trip to Seagrove Beach, and we have a new addition to our family this year. On one of the condo rental sites that I looked at there was mention of a dog license for the beach. Is this accurate? Where do I get this license? How much is it?


Abe and I thank you for your help!

Yes, it is unfortunate, but Walton County has yet another ordinance with unconstitutional requirements that could prevent one of God's creatures from having free roam of this world and playing on the world's most beautiful beaches. If you can figure out where the public part is versus the private.

We do have a Bark Park that you can use most anytime. It, also has a sign up with an illegal restriction on Tuesdays I think, but it is a public park so feel free to use my part if anyone asks.

"wrobert from the internet sent me." :D

Thanks all for the tips. It is unfortunate that junior won't be allowed to be on the beach with us, but there's still lots of walking to do on the pavement. I like the idea of the Bark Park too. Are pets allowed in the surrounding state parks?

Dogs are allowed on a leash at State Parks, but typically not on the beaches. Just along the trails and camping areas.

Are you familiar with the Pt Washington State Forest trailhead parking located on 395, just a little north of the WaterColor Publix? That area is very popular with dog owners, at least in the cooler weather. Last time I parked there and walked on the trail a while, I believe I was the only walker without a dog. You and the pup can maybe make some new friends out there.
Adorable dog!

Pets at the Pool

Hi,

What is the Health Department's code for having pets ( mostly dogs) around
the public pool area.. i.e. inside the fenced in area?

Thank you
