    Tight Spaces

    The Cliff Dwellings were very dog friendly - there wasn't a place we could go that she couldn't. However, the spaces were very tight, so it was sometimes hard to navigate with her, but the staff was friendly and she enjoyed the love. Not sure I would go back. The cliff dwellings were neat, but the internet made it seem like they were a lot larger and had more of them, a little disappointed with how little there was.

    This place was really interesting to check out. There weren't very many dogs which we were happy with. Some parts of the inside of the buildings are very small to squeeze through with your dog. My younger dog needed a little push to go through some of the hallways with it being so small. There isn't a place for pups to go potty that we could find, so heads up there. All around it was really cool to be able to take the dogs there

    Seriously dog-friendly

    I"d recommend going in the morning before it gets too crowded as the dwellings themselves are small. It was pricey but worth it for us to be able to take the dogs along. You can take your dog everywhere, even into the museum and gift shop. Some great photo-ops are possible here...we would have stayed longer but it was too hot for the pups.

    This was a fun experience for our dog, my husband, and me. It was a little crowded when we went. I didn't like people acting like they were scared of our dog! I was thinking.. come on people, do you really think we would bring in a vicious dog? Our 9 1/2 year old boxer had a blast. The price is definitely a little pricey for what you are looking at but worth it since our dog got to go with us. We could tell her thought he was pretty special.

    Educational For the People, Great Exploring for the Dog

    This place is SUPER on leash dog friendly. You and your dog can walk in the "ruins" and in the gift shop. The whole family had a great time. It is a little pricey, but definitely interesting, and informative.
