Creekside Canine's

Hello! This is Pup Pup. I am a dog angel just doing what angels do best - helping my human! I invite you to check out this incredible play space - keep reading! Your human may be stressed and hard to manage right now, but it's okay. Just bring them here and he or she will relax, I promise! They're going to act like it's allll you...that you haven't been out enough or have enough room. That's okay. Let them believe that. Whatever it takes to get you here! There is a very comfortable place for them to sit with a beautiful, peaceful waterfront view with lots of birds and squirrels. Unless of course you're just bonkers. For you there is lots of grass, sun and shade, SOOOO much to see and sniff, and plenty of room to run. Don't worry if nature calls and you have to make a little poo. Just make sure your human sees it and scoops it up please. The bags are in a little blue bone hanging on the tree in front of the stump with the American flag. There is a water bowl next to the hose in case you get thirsty. Let the water run for a couple of minutes though, it is super hot at first! Also, please get your human to rinse the bowl out when your done because 'nother dog slobber is just gross. Which by the way is the reason this is a B.Y.O.T. spot - Bring Your Own Toy dawwg - ain't no one wantin' to share slobber 'round here. As I mentioned before, there is plenty of shade and your humans can move the chairs around if they want. Just please have them put them back when they're done. There's almost always a little breeze so they may not even need to. If the cushions are not on them they will be in a container nearby. There is also a milk crate to the right of the stump with the American flag. That, my friend, is one of the best kept secrets around! Your human can move it around the yard to sit on so very easily and it puts them at the PERFECT height for games and kisses!! You're welcome! Let's talk about critters for a minute. The wild kind that are a wonderful part of our world. There are an incredible assortment of birds and lizards which should be of no concern, but there is always a possibility of snakes which might make your human a little uneasy and make you lose your marbles. Just be careful. My human spends a LOT of time in the yard had has only ever seen one harmless little black racer. Finally, I was a little feller so the fence would have been more than adequate for me, but for you bigger feisty dogs we might need to chat about this. It is about 4 ft tall most places but there are a couple of spots where dirt and stuff has accumulated over the years and it may be a little shorter. Annnnd...there are chickens. Yup. The neighbor has chickens and they are frequently struttin' their delicious feathery little selves around. Depending on your size and temperament this may not be an issue but Is definitely worth mentioning. Also, the creek front side of the yard is not fenced. There are natural barriers but you serious water loving dogs or escape artists could get out there with enough determination. Don't panic if you get yourself out there - it is never more than about 2-3 ft deep. The mud is relatively firm in the grassy area closest to the yard. It does get super squishy beyond that though. I think once you step paw out there you'll change your mind but again, I thought it was worth mentioning. Also, it is a tidal creek. If your visit is at low tide there won't be a whole lot of water in the creek. Well, that oughta do it. I hope you get a chance to visit and enjoy this amazing little piece of heaven on Earth! Oh yeah, one last thing. You can see a picture of me if you scroll through all the pictures. I sure was a handsome little devil! *Save up to 25% with a membership*

What people say about small dog parks around Jacksonville, Florida

The yard has a great mix of Sun and shade, a table and comfortable chairs and an expanding hose in case you need it. It’s tidy and plenty big enough for 2 or three large dogs to play chase and have zoomies. The fences are all privacy fences and the gate latches securely. There’s a wide parking apron next to the house. The owner wasn’t there when we were, so plenty of room. Even though it’s close to a busy road, the yard was quiet. The host also very kindly kept her own dogs in a part of the house where they would not be seen by visiting dogs. Stephanie was also prompt in responding to questions. Thanks for a great visit!
