The Tampa Bay area has been working hard over the last few years to become a more dog-friendly metropolis. Now that wish has even spread to small businesses as well.

Coming to Tampa soon, is a brand new indoor-outdoor dog park called Two Shepherds Taproom.  This will be Tampa’s first fully AC’d indoor/outdoor (5,000 sq ft.) dog park. It will feature an outdoor artificial turf park and a climate-controlled dog park inside.  Even better, a craft beer bar for human companions to unwind and socialize together. The beer bar will offer 16 craft beers on tap.

We first heard about the business in a dual Facebook and Instagram post back in January of 2019. It’s taken quite a while… but we are getting close.

Visitors with a dog will have to pay admission, but Two Shepherds will offer membership options as well. Dog owners will also be required to sign a waiver before entering the play area, which will be monitored by employees.

Management says, “You don’t need to have a dog to come in. You can come in and hang out with your friends — maybe one friend has a dog.”

While in California we enjoyed indoor dog parks. We frequented them often due to the California summers being too hot for our little Pug, Gunner and their breathing issues. Since moving back home here to Florida, it’s been difficult to take Gunner to any outdoor dog-parks due to the heat and humidity. This new indoor park is something I am really looking forward to.

Two Shepherds Taproom is located at 4813 N Grady Ave, Tampa, FL 33614. To get more information regarding opening day click HERE!
