For the health and safety of guests and dogs, please note the following: 

  • Stay hydrated! Water fountains and refill stations are located throughout the Garden.
  • Clean up after your dog and deposit bagged waste in trash receptacles.
  • Dogs must be on a leash, licensed, and up-to-date on vaccinations.
  • Owners must maintain control of their dogs at all times.
  • Any dogs deemed to be aggressive to humans or other dogs will be asked to leave the Garden.
  • Watch those noses and paws! Be alert to cactus pieces and other debris on the trails and do not allow dogs to wander off trail.
  • Be aware of your dog’s limits and monitor your pet for signs of heat stress.

 

Heat Advisory 

  • Owners should pay attention to their dog’s known heat tolerance. Dogs with heavy coats or low heat tolerance may want to visit another day.
