How to Find a Pet Friendly Boca Raton Condo
It’s not all that difficult to find a pet friendly Boca Raton condo. There are lots of them around. Of course, because there are restrictions upon the number and size of pets in those buildings, it may take some searching to find exactly the right home in Boca for you and your four-legged friends .
Here’s an interesting statistic that I just came across: 60% of the people in our nation own at least one dog; which means, of course, that 100% of dogs own at least one person.
With that in mind, let’s move on to some of the dog friendly aspects of Boca Raton, before we discuss some of the items that make it so appealing to people.
Dog Parks in Boca Raton
There are two Dog Parks in Boca Raton, but almost every park is dog friendly. The difference is the following: a dog park, by definition, is an enclosed area where dogs may run around without a leash.
That way, they are free to fraternize with each other and make new friends without parental interference.
A dog friendly park, by definition, is just about any other park. It means the dog must have a leash attached to his or her person. It’s a subtle difference, but your pets will understand it. After all, it’s how they take their walks most mornings and evenings.
Dog Park: Canine Cove is located with the 500 acre South County Regional Park in West Boca Raton. This 4 acre dog park (no leashes necessary) is open from sunrise to sunset every day except Wednesdays, when it’s closed between noon and 3 pm for flea spraying. (You never know what people will bring in with them).
Your pet will find dog rinse stations, doggie drinking fountains, and areas set aside for large and small dogs. The address is 12551 Glades Road, Boca Raton, FL 33498. The phone number is 561-966-6600.
Dog Park: Mizner Bark, The Downtown Boca Raton Dog Park. Because it’s located near some great shopping and restaurants, Mizner Bark is, without question, Boca’s preferred Dog Park.
It comprises two acres of doggie drinking fountains, dog bathing areas, and large and small dog areas. Unlike Canine Cove, which is open to all at no cost, Mizner Bark is open only to Boca Raton residents. Non-residents must obtain permits in order to enter.
Permits are available at any of the community centers in the city and cost $25 per month or $265 per year. Hours are 7:30 am until sunset every day except Wednesday, when the park opens at noon. (Wednesday mornings are for maintenance). The address is 751 Banyan Trail, the phone number is 561-393-7821.

Dog beach in Boca Raton
Yes, there is a swimming area in Boca Raton where dogs can freely sunbathe or just jump around in the surf. You’ll find it between lifeguard towers 18 and 20 at the North end of Spanish River Park. By the way, beachwear (for your pets) is optional.
This stretch of beach welcomes pets only at certain times and days of the week: Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays between the hours of 7 a.m. and 9 a.m. and in the evening between 5 p.m. and sunset.
You can purchase weekend passes at the Spanish River Park gatehouse at a cost of $10 per pass.
Boca Raton residents can purchase an annual pass for $30. For non-residents the cost is $165.
To get yours, go to the Boca Raton Community Center, James A. Rutherford Community Center, or the Sugar Sand Park Community Center.

There are Occasional Changes in Pet Friendly Condo Rules
On occasion, buildings may move from pet friendly to pet unfriendly. But since we perform custom searches for you, we keep you apprised of those changes.
The pet friendliness (or lack of same) is carefully outlined in the condo bylaws. These pet rules, created by the condo owners usually apply to cats and dogs. Exotic pets, such as snakes, lizards, lions, tigers, and bears (oh, my!) are usually unwelcome, even in the most pet friendly of pet friendly condos.
There’s more than just pet friendly to think about.
While pet friendly may be the your primary search criterion, you’ll also have a preference as to number of bedrooms; view – ocean, Intracoastal, city, golf course, garden; location – in-town, east or west of 95; and of course, price. So call us and we’ll help you find the pet friendly Boca Raton condo that’s gives you everything you’re looking for.
