Take Your Pets (Dog Or Cat) to College!

Every time I head up to UCF to see my daughter, she asks that I bring our dog. Let’s face it; the pup is everyone’s favorite family member. How do you manage pets at school? Personally, I would rather travel with a dog than have our daughter adopt one of her own that may eventually become mine too, so I often oblige. (You may want to see our blog on Pets at College if you already have a grandbaby with fur.) The good news is that is becoming rather common for people to travel with their pets.

Dog Parks

Perhaps while in the area you just want to let Fido get out and run a bit. Here are a few dog parks in the area:

Avalon Dog Park

Dr. Phillips Dog Park

Hound Ground Dog Park in Winter Springs. This park is only around 20 minutes away. However, they are closed on Wednesday’s from 7- 4.

Jay Blanchard Park on Dead Road is a less than a 15-minute drive from campus. It has big fields for your pups to run around.

Lake Eola Park – specifically on Sundays at the Farmer’s Market

Of course, if you are traveling with a service animal, which is not considered a “pet,” you are allowed to take your service dog virtually anywhere you are allowed to go. There should be no extra fees or deposits for this. However, emotional support animals may not be allowed to accompany their owner in public places, i.e. restaurants, stores, hotels, so you may want to check before you head out.
