It’s a day for the dogs at the Phoenix Desert Botanical Garden in Arizona

I, Cinnamon, am getting tired of the rain here in Washington state. How about a trip to the desert?

January 23rd, 2016 is the date set for a special Dogs’ Day in the Garden at the beautiful Desert Botanical Garden. Wander the desert paths with your best friend from 8 a.m. and 2 p.m.

I'd love to walk here!

This is one special day set aside for dogs and their families. Spend time in the “doghouse” with vendors sampling the best dog food and treats. Sit and listen to special presentation ranging from health dogs treats to keeping dogs safe in the desert environment.

Go for a walk on Garden trails, heel for family photo opportunities, and participate in craft activities for both children and dogs. Don’t miss this tail-wagging good time at the Desert Botanical Garden!

Of course dogs must be on a leash and remain on marked trails. If you’ve ever had an encounter with a cholla like I have, you’ll know how important this is!

The Desert Botanical Garden also asks that dogs be up-to-date on all vaccinations and registrations. Handlers are required to pick up after their dogs and properly dispose of their waste. Desert Botanical Garden reserves the right to refuse entry to or remove any dog thought to be dangerous to other dogs or visitors. Dogs will only be admitted to the Garden between the hours of 8 a.m. and 2 p.m.

It’s not free. Even dogs are charged $4.00 each. Humans pay the regular admission. Oh yes, the $4.00 is donated to the Arizona Humane Society. That’s a good thing!
