    Garden fun

    We loved being able to take our boy to the beautiful gardens. He was more interested in the squirrels than the birds. hahaha. The birds would get his attention when they talked.

    Accommodating and fun!

    Our Pierogi is what we believe to be a longhaired chihuahua, and has anxiety, so I was worried about her getting scared with all the birds and loud noises, but she did well, and only whimpered once whenever we first got there. There are only two places where dogs aren’t permitted and they have little benches for you to sit and wait while others in your party take their turn, which I thought was very thoughtful as my boyfriend loves birds and wanted to take a little extra time in those areas. However make sure your doggo uses the bathroom before you arrive as I didn’t see any good places for them to do their business.

    Dogs loved it!!!

    We brought our Whoodle and Aussiedoodle and they had a blast with the birds!! We noticed the birds were way more active once we’d bring the dogs over to them!!
    The staff was super sweet and gave our babies love and treats!
    The only places you can’t bring the pups into is the nursery, feeding, and petting areas because the birds are loose/flying around everywhere.

    Busy but fun place

    We really enjoyed all of the birds. I carried my Yorkie the entire time as there was a big group of kids who kept wanting to pet her. Overall the birds were fine with us. They are all beautiful and look very well cared for. We got lots of great pictures. Would definitely recommend if you have a calm dog.

    Beautiful birds and gardens!

    We enjoyed seeing the beautiful birds and gardens! The staff was friendly and welcoming. Our furry child, Tasia, enjoyed the visit, too. We suggest arriving early for a good parking place.

    We were respectful and found the staff extremely rude. Would not recommend.

    Roscoe the bird dog!

    We were looking for fun places to be able to allow our pup to spread his legs. This was not only fun for him but quite the experience for us as well. All of the staff was super friendly and welcomed us in. Roscoe did really well even big a typically high active dog. He loved seeing the birds and found it interesting that some could talk to him! So of course we had to buy him a souvenir from the gift shop!

    Very Dog Friendly!

    The staff were very welcoming of our dogs....the birds maybe weren't as thrilled! The gardens are beautiful. We got about half way through before our big dog, a lab, got a little too interested in some of the birds. Luckily it was cool out so we took the dogs back to the car then finished the tour. Just be aware that there is an aviary you walk through, then there is also a place where you feed and interact with about 30 birds who are on open perches. That's when we opted out with our lab. If your dog ignores the birds (like our terrier did) you'll be ok. All in all a fun time in a beautiful setting.

    Awesome place to visit

    This place was great and people were very kind. Please make sure your dogs are calm and well leash trained. If they are not please do not go .

    Parrots, parrots everywhere

    Fun little bird sanctuary with all kinds of parrots and beautiful birds. Leashed dogs are allowed on in the main area. There are some areas where you can feed the parrots and the dog cannot go in there. Our dog had some fun interactions with birds, a parrot actually barked at her and it was adorable. Everyone was very friendly.

    Great place for calm dogs

    We took our 2 dogs with us and had a great time. We have a beagle mix that’s about 5 and a toy poodle that’s approximately 9, Both calm, non barkers that love people and attention. They enjoyed walking around and appeared to actually be looking at the birds. The birds didn’t necessarily love the dogs being there but the staff was friendly and accommodating. Much of the area is shaded so even on a warm day the dogs were very comfortable. Both took a long nap after spending time walking around and checking out all of the cool exotic birds.
