There is only a few remaining Dog Beaches in the State of Florida and Jupiter is home to the only one in Palm Beach County. The Town of Jupiter adopted the policy and idea to allow dogs on the beach in 1989. Today, the dog beach has stretched to over 2.5 miles along the sandy shoreline.

Houseplants add a lushness and splash of organic color to any room. However, many species can be toxic to cats and dogs who may decide to munch on a leaf or two. Luckily, there are a few plants that can add beauty to your home without posing a threat to man’s best friend.

While the Summer heat is a welcome guest for many South Florida residents, our pets may not feel the same way. If you have a fury dog breed or one that is not naturally used to living and playing in hotter, more humid weather, you have to monitor him or her to ensure they do not get overheated. In addition to paying attention to your dogs’ behavior, here are some other tips on how to help your dog stay cool this Summer.

Leave the A/C On

It's tempting to turn off your air conditioning when you leave the house to save money, but your pets will need it while you're out.
