Does your best friend have fur and a tail? Then it is time you plan a date for the two of you to spend some quality time together. To help you out, we've made a list of dog-friendly trails in B.C. that they'll love to explore this summer.
Chances are all you need to is walk near the front door, and your pup starts wagging their tail with excitement. Instead of the regular stroll around the local park, you two can go on an adventure and make some memories.
Get ready to see your dog the happiest you ever saw. Your pet will adore spending some extra time with you, and smelling all the new trees.
Just make sure you pick a trail suitable for your animal's fitness level. You'll also want to bring along plenty of water for the two of you.
Sunny days with bright blue skies are perfect for hiking outdoors. Instead of going solo, you'll have so much more fun with your furry company.
It is time to pack up the car and drive to one of these nearby spots and start exploring.
