    Kind of sad

    With all the trails available at this park, I think it's sad that a few trails are not designated as dog friendly. My rating is not based on the park in general.

    Walked Our Pup On Bike Trails

    Understandably, dogs are not allowed on the hiking trails but we were able to take our dog on the bike trails which were still really pretty! We were also able to take him by Lake McDonald and get some really great pictures!

    Finally Found a Dog Friendly Spot

    We brought our dog to Glacier. She is blind and diabetic so dog kennels are not an option. After spending a week in the Glacier area we found a few dog friendly places. Although dogs are not allowed in Glacier, Bowman Lake and hike around the lake is pretty remote and there were dogs on the beach there and on the hike around the lake. We also went to the Northern Lights Saloon and Home Ranch Bottoms near Bowman and they both allow dogs in the outdoor areas which was awesome!

    Really cool but...

    Don't bring your dog here. They really, really don't like them!

    Glacier was fantastic and gorgeous, even though we could not take our dogs hiking with us. The closest kennel was this great place called Columbia Mountain Kennels. Our pups were very well taken care of. Rain was expected and I warned them that our dogs are really terrified of thunder, but like an idiot I forgot to leave their thunder jackets. These people sent us a text during an incredibly intense thunderstorm the second night to let us know that they had brought our two inside to sleep in their room with them and their own dogs. I was able to really rest after that, knowing that my pups were not terrified away from me. That, my friends, is amazing customer service. And they did not charge any extra, they did it for the dogs' comfort and our peace of mind. I wish I lived closer so I could use them all the time.
