All of us at Barlow’s are pet lovers, so we are committed to doing everything we can to be able to allow people to bring their pets with them. If you are considering travelling with your pet, please take the time to read all of the following.
We have a limited number of Jeeps available for guests who want to bring their pets with them in the Jeep. Advance reservations are strongly recommended, as these Jeeps do fill a long ways in advance for many dates. If a pet-friendly Jeep is not available on the day you wish to go, we can offer you alternate dates, or you can find other arrangements for your pet. We will not make exceptions as to which Jeeps allow pets, out of respect for our other guests.
If any pet hair is found in a Jeep that is not designated pet-friendly, a $150 cleaning fee will be applied. However, minimal cleaning fees will only be applied to our pet-friendly Jeeps if there is excessive hair throughout the Jeep, vomit, feces, etc. For our pets, we have seat covers to minimize pet hair and damage, and maximize pet safety and comfort. Under most circumstances, no cleaning fee will be applied to our pet-friendly Jeeps.
It is critical that guests discuss their pets with us in advance, because there are other circumstances of which pet owners must be aware:
- Hair and scratches takes much longer to clean so Jeep can be ready for next guest. Because many of our customers are sensitive, we have pets limited to certain Jeeps.
- Parks and archaeology sites. Pets are not allowed on hiking trails in National Parks or Monuments, and never at any historic or archaeological sites. We want to help you plan a day with trails you can enjoy with your pet.
- Safety and security. Our moderate and adventurous trails are not appropriate for pets, if they are not secured or accustomed to the bouncing and steep angles. We don’t want to see pets injured from being dumped off the seat on steep hills, or injure other occupants in their desperate attempt to find some way to “hold on.”
Note that smoking is not allowed in the Jeeps at any time, and often not on the trails due to fire restrictions.
