    Furbabies is a Sanford pet sitting and dog walking company. We started in Lake Mary, but are now the leading pet sitters in Sanford, FL and many of the surrounding towns. When we care for your dog, we spend most of the time taking them around your property for their comfort. But there are situations where we need to travel away from the property with your pet, and may bring them to a dog-friendly area that gives them a chance to either roam around or get some time around people and other pets. Because of those experiences, we compiled a brief list of some of the best places to take your dog, both outdoors and indoors. Hopefully this can guide you towards some ideas for spending more time with your dog without it impacting your life. As always, if you’re looking for a pet sitter or dog walker in Sanford, FL, please contact us today at 407-489-9418.

    Where to Take Your Dog – Parks

    The best place to take any dog is a dog park or dog friendly park. Most parks in Sanford allow leashed dogs. But there are also several dog parks as well that are great for letting your pet explore and interact with others. These include:
    • Paw Park
    • Derby Park
    • Lee P. Moore Park (Leashed)
    • Park on Park (Leashed)
    Fort Mellon Park is not considered the best place for dogs, although service dogs are allowed. Paw Park is considered one of the top dog parks in Sanford, and definitely a great place to spend a day out with your pet.

    Where to Take Your Dog – Retail and Restaurants

    Of course, not everyone has time for the outdoors (nor does the weather always allow it). Luckily, there are places that cater to people that allow you to take your dog as well. These include:
    • Otters on the River
    • Hollerbach’s Willow Tree Café
    • Buster’s Bistro
    • Sanford Farmers Market
    There are also several clothing stores and retail stores that allow dogs, but we haven’t taken note of them yet. We’ll update this list when we can. If you know of any dog friendly areas of any kind, let us know in the comments or on our Facebook page.
