Dog ownership is tough. You have to walk the dog. Feed the dog. It takes forever, so why not just experience the best parts of raising a dog by visiting the Beijing Zoo?

Located deep inside the Beijing Zoo is an abnormal petting zoo featuring a Dog Walk. Yes, that's right, you pay to walk a dog. With over 20 different breeds of pups to choose from, the dog walk is an interesting and hidden part of Beijing's charm.

You can rent out a pooch to walk around a park. You can even pay to feed the dog some treats. The overall environment is much better than having the dogs run around homeless, and the animals look somewhat healthy.
