Pet-Friendly England: Cotswolds Wildlife Park
Abby and rhinos

What I love, love, love about England is that dogs are allowed pretty much everywhere, including at their zoos.  We were super excited to take Chewy and Abby to the Cotswolds Wildlife Park to see all sorts of wild animals.

Well, for the most part, they were unimpressed.  They spent more of their time investigating the grass and looking at us rather than watching the animals.

That is, until we got to the farmyard.  Chewy chased the chickens around in their little cage, tangling up his leash, and Abby's border collie skills came out in full force as she eyed the sheep.  Apparently, our dogs know the animals that they can control and avoid the ones they can't.

Details

Cotswolds Wildlife Park is located in Burford, Oxfordshire.  Dogs are allowed in every area except the Wolves area and the Madagascar area.  We saw quite a few dogs at the park walking around.

That's awesome!!! Dogs are rarely allowed in places here where I live, especially in Zoos. I'm glad England has different considerations when it comes to pets.

It's so cool that you can take the dogs everywhere. I wish the rules were more like that here in the U.S.
