Anclote Gulf Dog Park in Holiday FL is a furry fun place that is friendly, no-leash, and a great place to take your best buddy to get some exercise and entertainment. Here’s a Facebook group page for Anclote Dog Park Pet Parents.
Are Dog Parks Good For Your Dog?
According to the ASPCA, dogs are used to working alongside people; and working hard. Hunting for food was a big part of their lives. Today’s dog spends most of his time alone, sleeps on the couch, and visits the bowl to munch and crunch. They have lots of energy but nowhere to displace it. They can become bored and overweight which can lead to bad behavior.

Socialization at a dog park can alleviate some of those problems. But says Cesar, do it slowly. Maybe just once a week to start and just a slow introduction. Don’t let him race into a doggy crowd. He will gradually want to move into a social structure and enjoy it. And it’s great physical and mental exercise for dogs. But only you can decide if dog parks are good for your dog.
People enjoy dog parks too. Socialization with other people is good for many, (especially if they don’t see many people on a daily basis), and the opportunity for some off-leash training is always good for Fido. And it’s a good idea to check out the dog park alone the first time; just to see where he will be playing.
Anclote Gulf Dog Park
Part of the Pasco County Parks, Recreation, and Natural Resources Dept, Anclote Gulf Dog Park can be found at 2305 Baillies Bluff Road in Holiday, FL.
There have been lots of improvements to the park thanks to a generous donation from a local funeral director and huge dog lover, Thomas B. Dobies. The dog park is open seven days a week from dawn until dusk, so stop by anytime.

We have some very beautiful parks in Pasco County and I hope you’ll take the time to visit them. There are always planned activities for the children. All thanks to our Pasco County Parks and Rec folks.
