Pets

Dog with leash

Pets are allowed on the battlefield if on a leash and under control. Leashes cannot exceed 6 feet in length. At no time are pets allowed to be off leash and run free. Pets are not permitted in the visitor center (Seeing Eye dogs are allowed). Owners of pets are responsible for waste cleanup and any damage their pets cause.

Need a Few Good Reasons to Leash Your Dog?

  1. Leashes protect dogs from becoming lost and from wilderness hazards such as sick, injured, or rabid animals.
  2. Unleashed dogs intimidate other battlefield visitors and their dogs, depriving them of the peace this park provides.
  3. Unleashed dogs could harass, injure, and sometimes kill wildlife.
  4. A leashed dogs keen senses can enhance your awareness of nearby wildlife or possible dangers.
  5. Unleashed dogs increase the probability of dogs being banned from Guilford Courthouse National Military Park.
  6. Failure to leash your dog may result in a fine.
