Chow Chow

If you love to travel with your pets, then gather up your furry pals and come visit us in Mount Dora. Perhaps one of the most pet friendly towns in Florida, Mount Dora has a number of pet friendly lodging establishments for your travel needs. For longer term stays and larger breeds try Tremain Street Cottages or Mount Dora Cottages in the Historic Downtown. If you want a cozy Bed & Breakfast atmosphere you will find pet friendly accommodations at the Grandview Bed & Breakfast, The Farnsworth House, The Captain's Inn and the Heron Cay Lakeview. For a complete list of pet friendly lodging establishments please visit the Pet Friendly section of the website.

Mount Dora even has it's own website dedicated to showcasing each pet that resides in Mount Dora at The Dogs of Mount . Here you can find out about each pet that lives in our town along with their heartwarming stories and photos to make you smile.

We have our own Mount Dora Dog Park, Mount D.O.R.A. (Dog Off-leash Recreation Area). The City of Mount Dora along with private citizens built this park last year and kicked the whole thing off with the first annual BarkFest. They raised enough money for future expansion of the Dog Park.

Downtown on the corner of 4th and Donnelly you will find Piglet's Pantry, Mount Dora's only dog bakery, and in fact one of the only dog bakeries anywhere in the country. Here you will find an assortment of treats that are sure to please the canine pallet.

We also have Hobscott Pet Supplies which is a holistically minded pet store specializing in natural pet foods. The owners are true pet lovers and have over 40 years experience to share in the trade. Be sure and take your pet for a visit.

Also, a number of eateries and restaurants in town allow pets in the outdoor seating areas. Pets are welcome outside at 5th Avenue Cafe, Chew Chew Express, Cecile's French Corner, One Flight Up Coffee Bar, The Mount Dora Coffee House and Pisces Rising on the deck. Some of these establishments will provide fresh water and treats for the furry visitors.

Plan your next trip to Mount Dora with your pet in mind.

Chow Chow for now,
