"Pensacola allows homeowners with a paid certificate to have pets on some of the "special permit beaches" with their permit. This does not apply to renters or tourists. The fine without this permit is $500.00. So far, Pensacola is the least pet-friendly place we have been."
Web Mistress Note:
"I recently spoke with a Parks & Recreation employee and was informed that dogs are no longer allowed on any of the beaches in Escambia or Santa Rosa counties, which is the Pensacola area, as well as in public playgrounds, or any other public areas in either county. She said the dog parks listed here are still open and available for dogs and their humans."

A reader advises us of some additional pet friendly areas - please help keep them that way by keeping your dog's poop cleaned up:
"There is a dog park at Shoreline Park in Gulf Breeze. It has two fenced in, off leash areas; one for small dogs and one for large dogs. You can not take the dogs to the beach area or boardwalk, only to the dog park. (Note from Web Mistress: This may be the same as #4 above - anyone know?)
"There is The Three Mile Bridge park at the entrance where you drive onto the fishing bridge, just as you cross the Three Mile Bridge, at the end of the Bridge. It is a very nice park where dogs are allowed, but you must bring your own pooper scooper and you must clean up the poop.
"Dogs are allowed at the Palafox Fishing Pier, but they must be kept on a leash. Take your own pooper scooper and clean up the poop."
NOTE: We can't visit every area on a regular basis, so if you have information about any dog parks or beaches, or any other animal recreation facilities, in the Pensacola area, please contact FloridaPets.net.
