About Us

I am a wiener dog lover. I have 20+ years of experience in Parks and Recreation. I’ve been involved, one way or another, in planning and executing various special events from Professional Skateboard competitions to festivals. I love my wiener dogs Bailey, Botsey and Candy and enjoy bringing them out to socialize. Since I adopted the boys we’ve been to the first local Wiener dog race and the Dogtoberfest Halloween event for all dog breeds, both at the Shell Factory in 2010. I was involved in early planning stages to hold Dogtoberfest near the Skatium in Fort Myers before it was relocated to the Shell Factory.

Since the Shell Factory has hosted successful dog events in the past, this partnership was a “natural”. What better location to expand and host more and more pet friendly activities and special events than a facility that already houses a non-profit Nature Park with over 300 animals? We can utilize the spacious grounds of this 17 acre facility with the delicious food and beverages available at the restaurants on site.

Bring your pooch with you when you come for food and drinks. You can have dinner and shop in the pet friendly gift shops. This certainly is Doggy Heaven on earth. Come visit and enjoy!
