Kelowna hotel pet-friendly accommodations

The number of pet-friendly Kelowna hotels and a handful of other factors helped make this Okanagan city the pet-friendliest city in Canada.


Dog parks, scenic on and off-leash trails, high quality pet food products, top-notch sitters, and pet-friendly beaches make traveling to your favourite Kelowna pet-friendly hotel with Fido a must. In fact, Kelowna has just been named the pet-friendliest city in all of Canada, according to Canadian Dogs Annual 2015 (read the full story on Castanet). And with so many reasons to visit Kelowna with your furry best friend, we’ve narrowed down the list to include the top five.


1. Dog Parks

Kelowna is home to 85 dog parks. This equates to approximately 700 hectares of dog-running turf, which works out to be almost 80 per cent of the city’s total green space. With so much room to chase sticks and tennis balls, it’s no surprise that Kelowna holds the title of pet-friendliest city.


2. Pet-Friendly Beaches

Cedar Creek Park on Lakeshore Road boasts a long pebbled waterfront perfect for playing and swimming with your pup on hot summer days. With picnic tables, on-site washrooms, and taps with fresh drinking water, this pet-friendly beach is the perfect oasis for you and your pooch-loving family when visiting the Okanagan.


3. Quality Food Products

There are more than 10 different pet supply stores offering up the finest in canine cuisine just steps from your Kelowna pet-friendly hotel. Whether you feed your pup kibble, raw food, or canned food, Kelowna is sure to have whatever it is your kitty or canine fancies.


4. Perfect Pet Sitters

A quick Google search for Kelowna pet sitters will bring up more than 53 hits on qualified and experienced pet sitters located in the Kelowna area. From dog walking to cat sitting, Kelowna caters to all your pet care needs.


5. Pet-Friendly Accommodations

When visiting the Okanagan with your faithful pup in tow, you’ve got some great options when you’re searching for Kelowna pet-friendly hotels. When you’re booking accommodations for you and your little buddy, be sure to confirm they accept pets, and ask if they offer up ground-floor level patios where your pets can do their business or provide any treats for Fido.
