Everyone likes to share their outings with animal family members. But be respectful of others on the trail. Do not allow your pet to chase wildlife or other animals. Be mindful of the rights of other hikers not to be bothered by even a friendly dog. Bury your pet's waste as you would your own. Take special measures at shelters. Leash your dog in any shelter area, and ask permission of other hikers before allowing your dog in a shelter.
