It’s true: Northeast Floridians love their dogs. If you live with a noble hound, you know what an important part your canine counterpart plays in day-to-day decisions, like where to grab a cold one while Checkers and Huan scamper unleashed.
That’s the dream on which owners Dustin Fries and Daniel Moffatt built Kanine Social, the area’s premier dog park where dogs run free and people run tabs. The complex lets canines loll in the sun as people unwind with a craft beer or coffee.
Mason, one of the canine founders (all three pictured), eagerly shared his thoughts on the new digs.
Davi: Tell me more about Kanine Social.
Mason: It’s a furrific place for dogs to play and sniff out new friends! The outdoor area’s fully enclosed, with lots of room to run, and the indoor park is padded with durable flooring for safe play. There’s even a spot to picnic with your people–the fake turf looks real, but we know the difference.
How did you come up with the name?
It was barked about by canine founders Maverick and Murphy. Our humans put a funky twist on it for a more modern flair.
How does one become a Kanine Social member?
Your human companion registers y’all online at kaninesocial.com. With an online account, you can select a membership level. Fees are reasonable, considering all the cool stuff here!
What’s needed to get in the park?
A membership or day pass; for the health and safety of both dogs and people, all dogs must have current licenses and up-to-date vaccination records on file with us.
Any safety concerns?
Safety is our top priority! Rules and regs have been put in place and will be enforced to keep you safe when you’re with us.
Are there areas for small and not-so-small dogs?
Absolutely! We have indoor and outdoor options for pups of all sizes.
Where is Kanine Social?
We’re on the corner of College and Rosselle, in the heart of Riverside, near Riverside Park.
When is the park open?
We’re open dawn till dusk every day, with specific daycare and taproom hours.
So what’s brewing at the bar?
The taproom will rotate a beer selection as well as nitro cold-brew coffee. And wines, ciders, craft sodas and water are available.
Tell me about doggie daycare.
Our team knows life is better with fur-iends, so the daycare lets pups socialize, enjoy supervised exercise and good ol’ general fun. Romp and play all day, snooze the night away.
Give me three words to describe Kanine Social.
Doggone good company!
What am I waiting for?
Great question! Come on out and join the pack!
Kanine Social is like nowhere I’ve ever been. It’s a dog park, daycare and taproom, all rolled into one. Even better, it’s a great local hangout where everyone will know your name … and your dog’s name, too. Cheers!
