Always remember that it is not uncommon for pets to attract wild animals. Many visitors employ personal floatation devices for pets when traveling on the Yukon River or side tributaries, as the water is often very cold, silty, and swift. Both communities of Eagle and Circle have strict pet leash policies. Keep pets leashed at all times in these areas as dog teams and kennels are prevalent.
