Bryce and Zion both offer shuttle options so you don't need to take a car everywhere in the park. Check out this article for more information on the shuttles, with links to the official NPS sites with more detailed information.

You may bring your dog to Yellowstone as long as you follow park regulations and take safety issues into consideration. Pets are prohibited in the backcountry and on trails and boardwalks, must be on a leash at all times, and may never be left unattended.

Pets may accompany you in the front country areas of the park. This includes any areas within 100 feet of roads, parking areas, and campgrounds. Pets must be kept under physical control at all times—caged, crated, or on a leash not to exceed six feet in length.

Make sure you read ALL of Yellowstone's rules about pets before deciding to bring your dog to the park.
