WE COVER THE TOPIC OF ZOOS AND ANIMAL CENTRES (INCLUDING WILDLIFE PARKS) WHEN IT COMES TO ASSISTANCE DOGS. WHY THEY ARE OFTEN NOT ALLOWED AND THE PLACES THAT DO ALLOW THEM.
- Why some zoos & animal centres don’t allow dogs
- Why some do allow them (dog friendly and AD friendly)
- Where do you stand with the law
- Appropriate behaviour and handling of your dog in that environment
We’ll also be adding a list of known dog-friendly and AD friendly zoos to this page as well as any additional information we can provide.
CONTENT COMING SOON!
Dog-Friendly Zoos & Animal Parks!
It’s important to be aware that although these locations are dog friendly at the time this page was created, they may change the rules.
Also please be aware that most places do not allow dogs (unless assistance dogs) into food service areas such as indoor cafes and diner areas.
Then you have open enclosures such as bird and bat walks, or lemurs and other primates. These will NOT allow dogs to walk through under any circumstances including assistance dogs for the safety of ALL animals involved.
