Dogs on Site

Please leave your dogs at home


At Dartmoor Zoo animal welfare is our top priority and it is for this reason that we do not allow dogs on site or to be left in cars in our car park.

Under the government Balai Directive, this includes guide dogs (although we are working with DEFRA to allow us to accomodate assistance dogs in the near future).

If you are on holiday and would like to book day care for your dog, we would like to recommend our former deputy head of Discovery and Learning, Phoebe Martin, who now runs her own business and can be contacted on 0774 3388 599 or or
