Bonita Beach Dog Beach

Off of Hickory Boulevard, Bonita Springs, FL

In Bonita Springs, just north of Naples, dog owners may bring their pets to the area’s only off-leash dog beach. Please be respectful of other dog owners and make sure that your dog has good off leash manners! Located between Bonita Beach and Fort Myers Beach, Dog Beach is recognized by Lee County Parks and Recreation, though the park system provides no facilities or amenities. They do set and enforce a number of rules, however. You must be 15 years or older to bring a dog, and may bring no more than two dogs. Children under 5 are not allowed on the off-leash area. Non-neutered, non-spayed, aggressive or sick dogs are prohibited from entering the beach area. The beach is open from dawn to dusk.


Delnor-Wiggins Pass State Park

11135 Gulfshore Dr. Naples, FL 34108 (239) 597-6196

Often described as pristine, Delnor-Wiggins Pass State Park won’t give your furry friends full reign, it does give dogs a chance to splash in the water. Plus, it’s conveniently located in North Naples. You can’t walk your dogs along the beach, whether on leash or off. However, you can lead them, on leashes, to the boat and canoe launch area, where they’re welcome to swim in the shallow water of Water Turkey Bay. You’ll have to wade in, too, as park rules require that you keep your dog on a leash at all times. The park is located off Gulfshore Drive; head due west on Immokalee Road until you reach the coast. The beach is on your left.

Puppy Training Graduates

“We adopted a two puppy mixes with serious separation anxiety and potty issues.  We thought it was a great idea to have two at the same time to keep each other company, but we ended up with double the trouble. We are so grateful we found Smart Dogs and Kristy. After just one session in our home, within two days, our dog Kilo has changed for the better.”
