Kelowna Pet Friendly Hotel Experience

Swim, stroll, and socialize with your pup during your next stay at Kelowna hotels.

Traveling with pets is becoming much more popular these days. Many pet owners are opting to stay at a pet-friendly hotel in Kelowna so that their furry companions can keep them company during their travels. It’s a trend that’s likely to continue picking up steam due to the rising costs of pet boarding.


However, instead of tucking your little wanderer safely away into your hotel room while you get out and explore the Okanagan, consider bringing them with you. The following activities are fun for both you and your pooch.


Go for a Stroll

One of the best ways to see the city and the sights is to head out on a hike. Kelowna is surrounded by the ultimate trifecta: water, mountains, and lots of sun. To take it all in, try one (or all) of the amazing hiking trails scattered throughout the valley. Grab your comfiest pair of shoes, a bottle of water, camera, and pup and head out on an epic hike.

For a quick list of just a few of the trails that not only cater to your senses, but to your pooch as well, check out our previous post: 6 of the Best Pet Trails From Your Kelowna Hotel.


Take a Swim

It can get pretty hot in Kelowna during the summertime, especially during July and August. To keep yourself and your pal cool this summer, stroll over to one of the pet-friendly beaches. Imagine a fun-filled day packed with sun, sand, and surf. Your pup will love swimming in the lake and sunning themselves on the sandy beach alongside you. It’s the perfect way to spend a hot Okanagan day.


Get Social

Kelowna is the perfect vacation destination for pups. There are nearly 85 dog parks that dominate roughly 75 percent of the city’s green space. That’s a lot of space for socializing. Grab Fido and his leash and head to a few of Kelowna’s perfect pup parks. You may even meet some friends yourself.
