Pets are wonderful animals that give comfort and companionship. However, a national park is not the best place for them. They may chase, scare, or transmit diseases to wild animals. Many pets leave behind a "predator" scent that can linger in the area for long periods of time and can disrupt or alter the behavior of the native animals this park has been set aside to protect. Dog owners looking for hoodoos and dog-friendly trails should also consider visiting nearby Red Canyon, which is managed by the U.S. Forest Service.
