If you are a dog owner, then rest assured that you can bring your pooch into Daniel Boone National Forest as long as you remember to stick to the forest's strict rules.
First, you must keep your dog on a leash at all times (or in a secure enclosure). The dog’s leash must not be more than six feet in length. Additionally, you are expected to keep your dog from venturing into areas of the forest that are out-of-bounds to dogs and other pets. If your dog poops, then you are expected to clean up after your dog and to dispose of the poop in the right manner.
