Yes that is a great site - we found it when we got home from our trip last winter.
I hear a lot of people say that Florida is not dog friendly - but and was told by fellow Ontario Unit members that you CAN NOT take your dogs on ANY beach in Florida.
We had stayed inland most of the time because of this comment. But decided to take a trip to Sanibal Island - made sure it was a cloudy day just in case the girls had to stay in the car.
Well much to our surprise!!! The sign said keep dogs on leash and stoop and scoup - NO WHERE did it say dogs were not allowed on the beach.
Every park we stayed at there always seemed to be a nice place off in the back to let the girls stretch their legs - with no rules telling us NO. During our travels there seemed to be more dogs than there were kids - every other trailer owner had a dog or two - and even cats on a leash.
Moral to this story - always do your own research and not everything people tell you is true.
Paradise Park where we stayed for 9 days - had a great big field for the girls - a couple of runs a day and they were happy as larks - we just had to watch the ditch in the far side - "Alligators" - They got in there once - it was a very hot day there way of saying we want a swim.
Cedars is absolutely right investigate and do a bit of planning.
We anticipate situations that are not the greatest for the girls - and well we will sacrifice our own pleasures to avoid a scene with the dogs. Cause it is just not worth it - so if we walk our dogs close to a trailer - where someones dog gets really excited and does it a second time - we sort of clue in that they can smell each other and for whatever reason they are a bit scared of each other - whether they are on a leash or confined to the trailer - so it is not that hard to pick a different route and avoid stressing both parties!! But hmmmm there are lots of people out there that just keep coming around with their dogs and the "scene" just goes right over their heads
We are looking forward to our trip again this year - no dates yet - but we have 4 weeks this time around and we may take a paddle boat with us - to enjoy the water more and the girls love it too! It is big enough for all four of us and a picnic basket too.
