Furry Fanatics & Dapper Dogs Spotlight

For most of us, our four-legged friends are more than just pets, they’re family! With this in mind and the fact that National Dog Day is next month on August 26th, we wanted to take a minute to shine a light on Furry Fanatics and Dapper Dogs located in Gulf Place. This locally owned pet-focused store and grooming salon nestled on 30A offers healthy food, treats, toys, grooming services and more with your pet in mind! It’s with a love for animals that they operate their daily business. This is proven to be true when you enter the store and notice the photo wall adorned with pets near and far that love Furry Fanatics and Dapper Dogs. We sat down with the owner Monica to get an inside look at the heart behind her store, here’s what she had to say:

What inspired you to open Furry Fanatics? 

 

Julie and Tim Brown opened Furry Fanatics in 2011 with the thought of providing a hub where people can access better diets for animals than you can get at the big box stores or even your veterinarian. I brought my company, Dapper Dogs, in with them and over the years I saw the changes that a focus on implementing a great diet can make. When they sold Furry Fanatics last October it was the perfect fit for me to step in and take over. Healthy nutrition is a largely over -looked and misunderstood part of owning a pet. I, along with my staff, are hoping to change that. The right food throughout a pet’s lifetime can make a huge difference. We carry an array of options including: Fromm, Nulo, Nutri Source, Natures Variety and many more. 

What sets your store apart from other pet-focused stores?

 

We are a small boutique pet shop that offers great customer service. With the limited space do the research and carry only the best foods on the market today. That is an ever-changing challenge.  We also offer full service dog grooming and spa days at Dapper Dogs. It is a stress-free daycare environment for the fur babies. 

 

What’s your favorite part about being a part of the Gulf Place community?  

 

The location is awesome. Situated right next to the beach on 30A, Gulf Place caters to great local businesses that we love to shop and eat at ourselves.

What do you want people who’ve never shopped for their pets with you before to know?

 

We are here out of love for pets. We have been working with animals for 20 years. We study the products we sell and consult with Veterinarians and pet nutritionist to choose what is the best for your pet. However, with limited space in our storefront if you don’t see it on the shelves, just ask, we can special order what you need.

 

What’s the best part about living and working on 30A?

 

The people. You never meet a stranger living on 30A. Locals stop by to tell a story about their fur baby and pick up food and treats. The visitors stop every time they are here just to get something special for the fur baby at home or they bring them in for a visit and treat.

Whether you live locally or are on 30A to visit, your four-legged family member will feel right at home at Furry Fanatics and Dapper Dogs. Be sure to “paw”p by and pick up some items to spoil your dog before August 26th. Furry Fanatics and Dapper Dogs is located at 56 Spires Ln, Unit 12, Santa Rosa Beach, Florida 32459 and can be contacted at (850) 278-6902.

30A SAND ROVER RALLY TO BE HELD AT GULF PLACE GREEN: APRIL 8

Bring your funky beach cruiser to the fourth annual 30A Sand Rover Rally inSouth Walton, Florida, on Saturday, April 8, 2017.

Last year, over 100 Land Rovers, dune buggies, Broncos, Jeeps and beach cruisers showed up for trail rides, live music and much more. Spectators are always welcome, and there is no admission fee to participate.

This year, the rally will be held on the Gulf Place green and will feature live music.

You can still buy official 2016 rally shirts online. They feature the 30A SAND ROVER RALLY rally logo on the front, and our 2016 sponsors on the back. New 2017 shirts will be available as the event draws closer.

SCHEDULE FOR SATURDAY, APRIL 8, 2017 (SUBJECT TO CHANGE):

9 a.m. – 5 p.m.: The 2017 30A Sand Rover Rally

We’re expecting another big turnout this year, so if “getting a good spot” in the rally lot at Gulf Place is important to you, or if you have a gorgeous “show car”, you might consider skipping the trail rides and heading straight to the rally location to secure your spot. We really have no way of knowing for sure how many vehicles are planning to attend, but volunteers will be ready to help park vehicles as they arrive.

Once the green fills up, parking will be available in the spots directly around the green and throughout Gulf Place. Just come prepared to HAVE FUN and bring your best casual beach attitude.

 

8:30 a.m.: Trail Meeting

Once again this year, attendees are welcome to meet in Point Washington State Forest at 8:30 a.m. CST. To find the meeting place, ACCESS THE STATE FOREST FROM COUNTY ROAD 395 SOUTH AT THIS ENTRANCE:

Lat: 30° 20′ 12.627″
Long: -86° 7′ 47.7726″

GOOGLE MAP

ONCE YOU TURN OFF 395 INTO THE STATE FOREST, SLOWLY FOLLOW THE DIRT ROAD. WHEN YOU COME TO THE 3-WAY FORK IN THE ROAD, BEAR LEFT. WE’LL MEET IN THE LARGE MEADOW AT THESE COORDINATES ON ROAD #13:

Lat: 30° 20′ 33.8274″
Long: -86° 6′ 53.391″

GOOGLE MAP

After a few minutes of photos and introductions, we’ll break up and hit the trails for as long as you like. All drivers are reminded to be responsible and courteous to other drivers and to state property. All activities should adhere to Tread Lightly principles.

We’ve been asked to remind everyone that DRONES are not allowed on any state property. Also, please note that NO ALCOHOL is allowed on state property. Officials will be on patrol in the forest to help ensure everyone’s safety.

South Walton features over 25,000 acres of protected land to explore, including Point Washington State Forest. But if getting muddy or dusty just isn’t your thing, no worries! You can hit the beach, cruise along Scenic Highway 30-A, or just head over to the official rally location at Gulf Place to hang out with other enthusiasts.

Some of the trails in Point Washington State Forest are very narrow (as in, “knock your mirrors off,” “scratch your paint,” and “tear up your roof rack” narrow). If your don’t like the sound of limbs scratching along the sides of your vehicle, we strongly recommend that you stick to the main dirt roads (see map below).

If you drive down narrow sand trails, you might not be able to back out, especially if you’re part of a long caravan. Please also note that anything on TOP of your truck (flood lamps, luggage, surf boards, etc.) could easily be damaged on the narrow trails, so please take it slow and easy.

Please don’t feel pressured to venture onto these narrow trails. There are plenty of wide dirt roads to explore! This map shows the best access points for trail rides:

A gourmet market has long been on my to-do list for quite some time, and I’m excited we could bring it to Gulf Place.”
