Walking your pet

Point Pelee does allow dogs, however they have to be controlled on a leash (maximum 3 m or 10 feet) and under physical control at all times to reduce any possible threat to wildlife and the habitats upon which they depend. Please remember to stoop and scoop and bag dispensers are provided at popular trailheads.  Dogs are allowed in all areas of the park including the Visitor Centre, beaches and the shuttle to the tip.
