Pets and animals are very important in our society and there are a lot of facilities that provide for the care and wellbeing of pets (e.g. dog, cat) and companion animals (e.g. horse). OpenStreetMap has only a limited vocabulary for mapping such facilities and this page aims to represent the current tag-value content and provide a summary of proposals. The list should be considered incomplete and representative.

Animal-focused tag-value pairs

Two animal-specific tags are in rare-use: amenity=dog_training (taginfo) and amenity=horse_training (taginfo). There was also a 2008 proposed feature for sport=dog_training, which would be related to competitive training. Consider also: name=*; network=* for the Association that a particular school might be connected with. Proposed (not in use as of Jan 2012) All

There are three types: "flat" racing; steeplechasing, i.e. racing over jumps; and harness racing, where horses trot or pace while pulling a driver in a small, light cart known as a sulky.

Proposed taginfo Horses

A field shelter is a very simple building, usually only a canopy, located in the countryside intended to provide shelter for animals (e.g. horses).

Specify animals admitted with tags like horse=yes/no, sheep=yes/no, pig=yes/no and so on.

Consider to add the tag access=* to specify its legal accessibility, especially access=private if people are not allowed to use it.
