Pets are welcome at Wright Brothers National Memorial under the following conditions:
  • Pets must always be on a leash no longer than six feet.
  • Pets cannot be left unattended.
  • Please clean up after your pet – properly dispose of their waste in trash cans.
  • Only service animals are allowed inside buildings.
For your pet's wellbeing, please remember to carry water on hot days. Keep an eye out for prickly pear cactus or sandspur, which can stick to paws and fur.

You and your pet can work together to earn a B.A.R.K. Ranger certificate!

B.A.R.K. stands for:
Bag your pet’s waste
Always leash your pet
Respect wildlife
Know where you can go

You can find B.A.R.K. Ranger booklets and certificates in the visitor center. Ask a ranger for more info!
