Bryce, Zion and Arches National Park

Anyone have any tips on places to keep your family pet (dog) while hiking the trails in any of the National Parks? I've Googled for kennels and it seems most of them are near I-15 (near the bigger cities). It seems a shame they don't duplicate what Grand Canyon has done and have a kennel right there in the Park.

Most national park websites address this--either that they have it or a nearby location, if possible. All three of these parks are pretty far from a good size town. Some vets in small towns will board dogs. I know mine does.

It's usually just better to leave pup at home. As much as I like to take mine with whenever possible, when it comes to my trips to southern UT, he stays home with a puppy sitter.

Grand Canyon gets a lot more visitors and can support an on-site kennel. It is also more distant from any towns, unlike these 3 parks.

As Connie mentioned, the park websites have good info. Zion doesn't specifically list any kennels but the other 2 do.

There is a kennel in Springdale, just outside Zion. I believe it's called Doggie Dude Ranch. I don't have personal knolwedge of this place however.
