  • Read and understand the hotel's pet policy.
  • Always clean up after your pet.
  • Keep your pets on a leash and under control.
  • Don't leave your dog unattended.
  • Keep your dog from barking.
  • Bring everything that you need - leashes, bowls, food, water, jackets, dog beds, poop bags, meds, snacks, etc.
  • If possible, ask for a ground floor room near the end of the building with easy access to outside.
  • A tired dog is a good dog.
  • Alert staff if there are any accidents or issues.

Your pet is going to love Big Sky's backyard as much as you do. Stop by the Big Sky Visitors Center to find out about pet friendly activities, get recommendations on hikes, and more. After a big day in the great outdoors, stop by the Beehive Brewery for a local craft beer in a dog friendly environment.
