Do you know of any places you can recommend?

This list is meant to be a source of inspiration for those who want to travel with their dogs - and enjoy the trip, with their dogs...

We hope to grow this list dramatically and fast. If you know of any destination (resort, park, accomodation, tour, activity) you have enjoyed yourself together with your dog, then please share!

If you are in doubt what makes a travel destination qualifying for being on this list, then these are the criteria we use for editing:

  • Your dog must be allowed to stay with you where you sleep - under diligent supervision, of course.

  • Damage deposits are aceptable, as are reasonable extra fees for the dog.

  • Certain restriction on where you can bring your dog are OK, as long as you have reasonable options for managing such situations - and those restrictions do not jeopardize the main purpose of bringing the dog along: to have a dog vacation!

  • Discrimination against certain dogs because of breed, pedigree, or lack of same, is unacceptable.

If you know of a publication you know fits with these criteria, please let us know! By being the sponsor of this information, you help the publisher reach out to more people and help more dogs live a healthy and enjoyable life.



In the following table, the destinations are listed as we have received the information from the sponsor, and the presentation of this information is solely the sponsor's responsibility.

The Sponsor is the person who submitted the listing, and the comments are made by the sponsor. Additional information is available from the sponsor - click on the name, and an e-mail will be prepared.

You will see some capital letters displayed under the name of the publication. Those letters refer to the main topics covered by this publication, as per the experience of the sponsor for this listing. The letters stand for:

Small letters indicate lesser importance, as assessed by the sponsor. A missing letter indicates that the information is not available. A letter in red indicates a destination that is conversial or restricted.

Houseboat vacation
A H
Shuswap Lake, BC RVI - Three Buoys Mogens Eliasen
January 2004
Shuswap Lake has many resorts that rent out houseboats, and many of them are dog friendly. As you need to beach the boat every night anyway, getting the dog onshore for its "business" is not a problem. There are lots of hiking possibilities, and for a dog that loves to swim, this is it! I have done this for many years, and it is truly great.
Dog training camp
A H T
Kamloops, BC K9joy camp courses Anita Watson
January 2004
These camp courses are for small groups of people (maximum 8 per instructor), and the focus of the training is search and nosework and practical control of the dog under the natural settings of the BC wilderness! Family and kids are welcome too! Your dog is guaranteed pooped out at the end of the week - unless you are yourself before that...
