Miami is one of the best pet-friendly places to live in with dozens of pet stores, pet-friendly restaurants, dog parks, and available veterinarians. Ranked by Reward Expert as the third most pet-friendly destinations in the United States, after Tampa and San Francisco, Miami is constantly evolving and adapting to trends so it’s no wonder why the most up and coming buildings and hotspots in this city are becoming pet-friendly.
With thousands of people living in Miami, over 77% of Miami-Dade County households have some sort of pet. One of the reasons many pet owners struggle in their search for a new home or living space is because they require available amenities, space, and recreational options for their pets. Many new buildings are even offering pet daycares and other amenities that make life as a pet-owner much more efficient, specifically in areas such as Coral Gables, Brickell, and Miami Beach. Even Coconut Grove is considered one of Miami’s most pet-friendly neighborhoods, with dog-owners walking their dogs routinely around the park and taking Sunday trips to the farmer’s market with their pets.
Moving to Miami, especially with a pet in tow, can sometimes be a difficult transition when you don’t know what to expect or where to start looking. However, there are many safe options which include D.O.G, the hotel for pets, and other daycares that will watch your pet while you tour the city. A few residential buildings known for making our furry friends feel right at home also include Midtown 29, Modera Douglas Station, and Berkshire Communities. Whether you’re looking for dog parks, cat cafés, or Yappy Hours, Miami has it all and then some.
