A reminder on dog rules
Statistics show that 68 percent of all U.S. households own a pet, and by far the most popular is the dog. Panama City Beach is a dog-friendly community with many local businesses welcoming man's best friend. Dogs also are provided room to run at two city parks and on a portion of the beach. The City of Panama City Beach has designated dog friendly areas at:
- Pier Park Beachfront on the west side of Russell-Fields Pier
- Aaron Bessant Park amphitheater, greenways and trails
- Frank Brown Park dog play area, greenways and trails
For our visitors and locals, here's a reminder of the rules regarding dogs:
- Owners are responsible and liable for the actions and behavior of their dogs.
- Dogs must be kept on a leash at all times.
- Owners must clean up after their dogs by placing waste in the proper disposal stations.
