Did you know Dunedin, Florida, is also known as “Dogedin”? After one visit to the delightful downtown area, it’s easy to understand why. Upon entering the town, you’ll notice several murals showcasing some of Dunedin’s most loveable furry friends. On the weekends, dogs make the best companions for Dunedin Farmer’s Market, seasonal festivals or exploring Dunedin’s many outdoor parks and public spaces. What makes Dunedin truly unique though, is almost all of Dunedin’s awesome restaurants allow your four-legged friends to accompany you in their outdoor spaces. Just remember, the city of Dunedin does not allow pets off-leash. Ensure you and your pet a great time by keeping them on a 6′ hand-held leash at all times.
