Service animals are allowed in national parks. For a definition of a service animal, please visit www.ada.gov/service_animals_2010.htm.
Service Animals that meet Americans With Disability Act (ADA) guidelines are permitted everywhere in Shenandoah National Park. Owners are encouraged to identify their working service animal, such as with a vest. Identification is not required, but helps prevent unwarranted "dog on trail" complaints from other visitors. There are no plastic bags provided at trailheads for waste products, so please bring your own. Please visit the service animals page for more information.
