Pet-Friendly Wyoming

Think you can’t find some great dog-friendly adventures in Wyoming? Think again!

Grand Teton National park in Moose welcomes leashed dogs anywhere except hiking trails, and while dogs are not allowed to roam Yellowstone National Park at large, they are welcome to accompany their owners to the Old Faithful Geyser. If you want to let pets run free, there are 6 large off-leash dog parks located in popular Wyoming cities such as Cheyenne, Casper, Jackson, Sheridan, Cody and Rock Springs.

If hiking is on the vacation to-do list, Medicine Bow Trail in Routt National Forest welcomes dogs, as do all the trails in Bear River State Park. Families vacationing near Cody can contact Cody Wyoming Adventures, which offers whitewater rafting on the Shoshone River or Wild Mustang horse tours that allows dogs to tag along.  For those who wish visit more of Yellowstone National Park with dogs in tow, Cody Wyoming Adventures also offers a Yellowstone Wildlife and Photo Tour where leashed pets are welcome.

For something a little different to preserve memories of the trip, visitors can bring pets to the Red Velvet Swing in Jackson for some old time photos that include the whole family. Lastly, don’t worry about where fuzzy friends will stay – in addition to 54 campgrounds, there are 148 hotels in Wyoming that welcome them.
