Visiting the Arboretum with Dogs
Several times a year, the Arboretum hosts “Dog Admission Days” and “Tails on the Trails” events. These are the only times that non-service dogs are allowed in cars or on the grounds of the Arboretum.
Both events offer a unique opportunity to explore the Arboretum’s 16 miles of trails with your favorite canine companion.
Dog Admission Days
“Dog Admission Days” are less structured and simply offer members and guests the opportunity to visit the Arboretum with their dogs, without the vendors and other Pet Expo attractions.
On January 30, 2022 the Siberian husky rescue organization Adopt-a-Husky will be on-site to celebrate our first Dog Admission Day of the year. From 10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. Adoptable foster dogs will be available for guests to meet, and there will be photo opportunities with the huskies and a special dog gift shop during the event.
Tails on the Trails
During “Tails on the Trails” events, guests can visit the on-site Pet Expo, which features dog-oriented shopping from vendors representing local businesses and organizations, opportunities to adopt dogs, and options to learn about volunteering at local animal shelters.
