Fido-Approved Activities Near Kelowna Hotels

Planning a trip with your best bud to Kelowna hotels? Check out these great dog-friendly activities.

Hitting the open road with your best bud can make road-tripping to a Kelowna hotel more fun than going solo. It’ll encourage you to make more frequent stops, visit some pup parks along the way, and give you someone to chat with. Even if they don’t respond to your chatter, it’s still nice having a little company for the drive. 

To treat your dog to a little bit of fun once you arrive at your hotel in Kelowna, check out some of these Fido-approved activities. 

 

Pup Parks & Beaches

Kelowna is the perfect place to spoil your beloved pooch. With nearly 85 off- and on-leash dog parks, Kelowna has snagged the title of Canada’s pet-friendliest city. If your pup prefers the freedom to mingle and chase tails, Kelowna has five off-leash parks scattered around the city. Some of our favourites include: 

  • Cedar Creek Park – this off-leash park includes trails, a swimming area, and a beach area. It’s absolutely perfect for spending an afternoon together during one of Kelowna’s famous hot and sunny days. 
  • Enterprise Park – located steps away from your Kelowna hotel, this pup park has a swimming area and a couple of picnic tables. It’s on the small side, but it’s a great spot for puppy picnicking. 
  • North Glenmore Dog Park – This extra large dog park has lots of space to run in, and even includes solar-powered lights for night-time use. If you get into Kelowna late, and your pooch is itching to stretch his legs, this is the park to stop at.  

 

Doggy Day Care Facilities

Because Kelowna is a popular dog destination, the city is home to a wide variety of dogsitting services. Stop by the front desk at the pet-friendly hotel Kelowna dog lovers rave about, and they can help you find one nearby. Their suggestions will most likely include: 

 

Pampering for Your Pup

For an extra special treat, send your furry companion to a puppy spa for the day. Your pup will be treated to socialization, exercise, and some pre- and post-exercise massages. After a long day of traveling, who wouldn’t want a nice, relaxing massage?

The Alpha Pack Canine Care facility will guide your dog through a relaxing day that’ll keep you returning to Kelowna together again and again. They even provide pick-up and drop-off services from your Kelowna hotel. 

 

Walking & Hiking Trails

Besides off-leash parks, Kelowna plays host to a ton of on-leash trails. These trails will not only provide a day of exercise for you and your pup, but they’ll also give you an inside peek at some of the most amazing views in the Okanagan Valley.
