Glacier National Park — Pets


We love our pets and they are members of our families, but before bringing your favorite critter to the park there are some things to be aware of:

  • Pets are not allowed along lake shorelines outside of developed locations, on trails, in any building, or in the backcountry.
  • You can have your pet in developed areas, in front-country campgrounds, in parking areas, in your car while driving in the park or along the road when stopped, picnic areas, or boats where motorized watercraft are permitted.
  • Pets must be on a leash no longer than 6 feet under physical restraint. If not on a leash they must be caged at all times, including in the back of open-bed pickups.
  • Pets can't be tied to an object and left unattended.
  • Pet owners are required to pick up after their pets and dispose of waste properly.
  • Owners must keep their pets quiet and not make unreasonable noise.
  • Pets are not allowed on roads closed to vehicle traffic. These are considered backcountry trails
  • Do not leave your pet in a closed vehicle! Though the park is in the mountains, temperatures in the summer can climb above 90º. Outside air that is 80º can cause the interior of a car to reach 94º within two minutes, and 120º within an hour.
  • Consider boarding your dog in a kennel during your visit. Kennels are listed on this site.
