Sophie is definitely a member of the family, as most pets are to their families. So when traveling, it is important to plan ahead for "pet friendly" restaurants, hotels and parks so that our four legged family members enjoy their vacation as much as we do. Fortunately the Sarasota/Bradenton communities embrace this love of our pets. We have some beautiful community dog parks as well as many public parks.
When researching the information for this blog, I hit on a gold mine at site called BringFido.com. This site offers helpful travel information for many locations around the world!
I have included some helpful direct links below for those coming to Sarasota/Bradenton. But check out BringFido.com when going elsewhere as well. It is user friendly and loaded with helpful information.
