Happy Halloween Lil’ Doggie

Where can you find a dog-friendly restaurant? Bring Your Dog Cafe is one of three in the city that have carefully sealed the food prep area from dog access granting them permits to operate. (Check out another here). Cafe, restaurants and bakeries first, they’re dog playgrounds second and occasionally locations for pet rescue fundraising efforts, thanks to local photographers.

A day at the beach, was just what the universe ordered. Selkirk is near Port Dover along Lake Erie in Southern Ontario. Pack water, snacks (we should have), reading material and maybe a beach chair.

Travel Kingston, Ontario: Where to go (and not go) with your dog

Chez Piggy, one of Kingston, Ontario’s favourite restaurants, is dog friendly – outside in the courtyard, which frankly is where you want to be on a warm summer day. Because this restaurant is a converted limestone stable and originally zoned to contain animals, the site pre-dates many provincial laws and therefore permission to allow pets is grandfathered, making Chez Piggy exempt from Ontario’s ‘no dogs on patios’ laws.
