Take the BARK Ranger Pledge
Hi! My name is Shea. You can become a BARK ranger like me. Just have your human review and agree to the rules of B.A.R.K. and sign on the line. With approval from a park ranger, you can buy a bark ranger tag at one of our visitor centers.
I, _____________, and my human companion, agree to follow the rules of B.A.R.K. when on any national park lands. We understand where in the park we may go and we will act as good role models for other pet owners in the park.
After taking the pledge, humans can purchase a Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore BARK Ranger tag for their pet at the park visitor centers.

Bark Ranger Ambassadors
Volunteers and their canine companions can become BARK Ranger Ambassadors, informing the public on how to properly enjoy the park with their pets. Volunteers are trained on how to approach visitors and explain the importance of the BARK Ranger rules. Responsibilities vary from setting up a table with pet information to roving areas and approaching visitors about pet behavior. Email the park's volunteer coordinator for more information. For other volunteer opportunities, go to the park's volunteer page.
