Anyone who has ever loved and been loved by a pet knows that animals are a legitimate part of the family! That is one of many reasons why looking for apartments can be frustrating. If searching for Newberry, FL pet-friendly apartments near Gainesville is on your to-do list, then check out Flats at Tioga Town Center. Your favorite furry friend is sure to find the acceptance they've been searching for!

Your pet will feel loved wherever you are, but you'll love the human ways Flats at Tioga Town Center makes your home pet-friendly. Hardwood floors not only look sleek and clean, but they also are easy to clean. Pets don't mean to be messy, but they've been known to shed and have accidents from time to time. Carpeting holds onto hair, stains, and odors, but hardwood floors can quickly be swept, mopped, and disinfected to keep your space comfortable. Similarly, in-unit washers and dryers are available to make impromptu loads of laundry hassle-free after wiping off Fido’s muddy paws. Take a look at our photo gallery and see the upscale apartment details that make you and your pet feel at home.

Parks You and Your Pet Will Love

Life doesn't stop at the front door, however. There are 4 off-leash dog parks in Gainesville, so your furry family member can enjoy a good run now and again.
  1. Check out Squirrel Ridge Park for a relaxing leashed stroll or spend some time in the fenced off-leash area that includes running water, shade, and chairs for human friends to take a load off (and brag to other humans about their great dogs, obviously).
  2. Possum Creek Dog Park features two separate areas, one for large dogs and one for small ones. The space is very open and has lots of shade and includes water fountains for continuous supplies of fresh water for dogs low enough to the ground to enjoy it.
  3. Haisley Lynch Park is another option, with double-gate fence entry for safety, as well as water fountains and big, shady trees.
  4. Then there's Dogwood Park, which is also fully fenced but also has two swimming ponds and agility equipment. This off-leash park requires admission fees, but it's well worth it.

Pet-Friendly Businesses Near Gainesville, FL

While it's great to accompany your pooch for an afternoon of his favorite activities, it's nice to also be able to take him along to yours! There are many pet-friendly spaces and businesses near the Gainesville community that also love pets! Spacious sectionals at Fluid Lounge let you and your pet chill together while you wait for your classy cocktail. World of Beer is a more casual place where you can grab some tavern-style food and drink with friends. Just ask for a table on the patio, and Fido is welcome to tag along! If you and your pet are more into Italian food, you won't want to miss Amelia's, which is right in Gainesville. Their gated patio welcomes dogs with open arms, so be sure to share a few pieces of penne with your pooch while you're there.

This place was even featured on the show Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives. Fido won't really care about that, though. He'll just be glad to be joining you for your meal out!
