- Fort Cross Old Timey Adventures: You can only bring your doggos if you let us smoosh and snuggle them with lovins. And they’ve gotta be wearing their “can’t get away ropes.” Petting zoo is a no-doggo zone though. They can join on the hayride if there is room. Water dishes available throughout the property.
- Julian Farm & Orchard – Well behaved and leashed dogs can take hayrides, pick a pumpkin and watch their human shoot a bow and arrow or throw an axe. However, dogs may not be in the Apple orchard, berry patch or our animal corral.
- Julian Mining Company -Dogs are welcome, but may not go in the orchard (there is a shady area where they wait while their humans are in the orchard)
- The Volcan Valley Apple Farm is dog friendly to all leashed, well-trained dogs. We provide doggie bags at the entrance gate, and a bucket of water for thirsty dogs.
Service Animals: Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Requires reasonable accommodation by public entities and accommodations for “service animals,” where this means “any dog that is individually trained to do work or perform tasks for the benefit of an individual with a disability.” In some circumstances, this can also extend to miniature horses. Explicitly does not apply to emotional support animals.
If one of our local businesses states that they are open to “service animals only,” please adhere to the guidelines above.
