Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden

Dog and Owner Etiquette at the Garden

Scoop your poop. Bring several bags on your walks to be sure you have enough. If you run out, either come back and clean it up later, or ask another walker if they have a bag to spare. Please maintain social distance when speaking with other guests.

Always leash your dog on walks at the Garden. Not everyone is comfortable around dogs. Keep your dog close to you and stay alert to others. Your leash should be short enough to prevent your dog from contacting or jumping on a passersby.

Only let your dog greet a stranger if they ask. The same rule applies if you see another dog and owner approaching. Ask first and respect the other’s response.

Be aware of other people's feelings. If your dog does something to upset someone (jumping up, barking) apologize to them and take measures to prevent the situation from reoccurring.

Fairchild reserves the right to ask any guests to immediately leave the Garden if they or their pets appear to be a risk to others or unable to comply with stated rules or acceptable behavior.
