Dog Days of Summer at Kansas City Zoo

The dog days of summer are upon us. Cool off in the shade of the painted dog and dingo exhibits to learn more about these animals that look similar to your dog at home.

Check out dingo and painted dog Zookeeper chats. The painted dogs will also be cooling off with ice treats during the chat.  

From 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. see and touch painted dog biofacts, paint a life-size cutout shaped like our painted dogs for display at the exhibit and then color your own painted dog to take home. All Dog Days of Summer activities are included in Zoo admission.
