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.
If you choose to bring a pet to the park, please observe the following regulations:
Pet owners not adhering to regulations may be cited (minimum fine is $75). 36-CFR 2.15 provides more details concerning pets within National Park Service areas.
Kennels near Bryce Canyon are located in Panguitch (30 mi, 48 km), Richfield (100 mi, 160 km), Cedar City (85 mi, 136 km), and Kanab (74 mi, 119 km).
