Time to play games. Enjoy this Westminster Dog Show trivia and dog breed word search.
Like everyone, I’m ready to bolt out of the gate this summer – already the list of pet festivals and dog-friendly events is growing on the dogtrotting.net events page.
The 13th Street Winery in St. Catharines, Ontario, Canada is a dog-friendly Niagara winery where you can dine, sip wine, and enjoy art with your dog.
Love little things? Model railways? Dollhouses? And Canada? If yes, you’re in luck, because Little Canada in Toronto, Ontario blends all that into one experience where tiny moving trains, cars, and light fixtures and buildings recreate the country’s iconic cities and surrounding areas.
The Niagara Region in Ontario is an expanding Canadian wine region and every week in social media groups someone asks, where are the dog-friendly wineries? Ridge Road Winery is one of those wineries – focused on creating an experience near the vineyards rather than simply being an outlet for wine tasting and sales. And this experience, fortunately, includes the dog.
Pet festivals are great for a lot of things including socializing your dog, picking up new pet products (and samples), getting travel ideas, and likely the most overlooked: getting pet business ideas. I found myself thinking about all of these things and more after attending the Canadian Pet Expo.
Is the Toronto Premium Outlets mall dog-friendly? That’s a question I’ve seen frequently on social media and pet travel groups. The answer is yes, with a caveat.
Stratford in the spring, before the renowned Stratford Festival theatre performances begin, has a different vibe. A slower easily strollable, dog-walking kind of vibe. And that’s what I did a lot during a two-day getaway to Stratford, Ontario, Canada with my 1.5-year-old pup who’s not a fan of leash walking. And that’s why we ended up at the leash-free park … and there’s a good one in Stratford.
The season of pet festivals has begun. Start by taking you dog to the Canadian Pet Expo Easter weekend. Then head to dog-friendly breweries during special pet event days.
Sometimes what seems like minor issues are actually symptoms of a larger problem – sometimes they are minor issues for your dog. Paw irritation for instance can be an infection or irritation due to road salt. Nasal congestion can be seasonal allergies or a blockage that needs removing. Similarly, dry nose is not natural but might be a reaction to weather.
