It's JAX or J-Ville for short, but this happens to be Florida's most populous (827,000) and America's largest (885 square miles) city... and since seemingly every resident has a pet, it stands to reason this town has gone to the dogs.(And dog sitters.) A goodly amount of greater -- is it redundant to call it pet-friendly? -- Jacksonville is devoted to a dozen dog parks; some downright resort-like and favorites of dog sitters. Confederate Playground Dog Park, just north of downtown, is a completely fenced off-leash park earning rave reviews for features and function. Dog Wood Park in Southeast Jacksonville claims to be the USA's biggest, spanning 42 acres; it ain't free ($11 daily, or $289 annually for one pet) but it may be puppy heaven on earth. For trusted home dog boarding and pet sitting services, hook up with DogVacay.com.
River City's balmy climate and 20 miles of ocean beaches lure tourists with two or four legs; leashed dogs and pet sitters can run the sands of Jacksonville Beach, or Amelia and Anastasia islands. At night, you can place Man's Best Friend with dog sitting or home dog boarding, or visit one of many pet-friendly joints; the Blue Fish Restaurant and Oyster Bar in Riverside invites pet and parent to weekend "Yappy Hours." DogVacay.com's Jacksonville pet sitting and home dog boarding hosts promise to keep your pet happy for hours -- or days.
