Don’t Forget Fido

No vacation is complete without the entire family, but finding that perfect dog friendly vacation spot can be a challenge. A dog lover cannot imagine going away without their treasured four legged buddy.  Finding that utopia in the wilderness takes a lot of research.  Many places say they are pet friendly, but will not allow your pet to be left unattended in the room or cabin…which poses the challenge of what to do with the dog while you are swimming…or if you go out to dinner.  And speaking of swimming, many places do not allow dogs on the beach or in the water.  Some places say pet friendly, but only accept small dogs, or ban certain breeds.  With so many restrictions it can make it hard to relax and enjoy your vacation.

Welcome to the region of dog friendly hospitality; in Loring-Restoule there are many places that accept pets, so the whole family can come on vacation.  Our region is home to vast wilderness and nature trails that your dog is sure to enjoy.  Both of our Provincial Parks, Grundy Lake and Restoule accept leashed pets on their hiking trails, and even have a dog beach and exercise area.  There are resorts in our area that cater especially to the responsible dog owner, complete with agility course and dog lover packages to pamper your four legged friend.

Make sure you check the pet-policy before booking so you are sure of the rules and regulations/fees at the accommodation of your choice.

Dogs are welcome at our local Farmers Market that runs on Wednesdays during July & August.  Select vendors offer custom made dog collars and apparel.




Our 4 season destination awaits you and your dog, to explore the many scenic trails, waterways, and rugged wilderness that makes our region a thrilling destination for dogs and humans alike.
