These are perfect places for your pooches! A ranking of the best cities for dogs in 2020 includes three Canadian spots and they all scored pretty well. However, the poop and scoop could probably be improved in all of them.\nAn insurance company has put out a study and ranking about where in the world our favourite furry friends thrive.\nIt might seem surprising that an insurance company did this but this one is so canine obsessed they actually have an Instagram specifically for employee's dogs that come into the office.\nEditor's Choice: This $475K Ontario Mini-Mansion Has A Beach In The Backyard\nWith this year's ranking, so many aspects of pet ownership and dog life are looked at.\nThere's information on things that make a city perfect for pooches like parks, pet stores, vets and dog-friendly places like restaurants and hotels.\nCities were also scored on how many pups are abandoned each year and fines for owners not cleaning up after their furry friends.\nPeople in each city were even surveyed about how responsible dog owners are there when it comes to picking up poop.\nThe ranking also includes information on how many canines there are per 1,000 people and what their lifetime costs are.\nToronto is the best city in Canada for dogs and was ranked ninth with a total score of 88.67 out of 100.\nOntario's capital did well when it comes to the number abandoned per year and how many pet stores there are.\nIts lowest score was 74.67 for the amount of dog-friendly restaurants and 65.81 for the number of pups per 1,000 people.\nView this post on Instagram So many gems in my neighborhood 💎 @romtoronto A post shared by Mochi the Fluff (@jemappelle.mochi) on Sep 16, 2020 at 7:06pm PDT\nMontreal was ranked 16th with a total score of 87.03.\nIt also had its best scores in dogs abandoned per year and the number of pet stores.\nThe city's lowest one came in the waste fine category.\nHowever, Montreal has the highest rate of dogs per 1,000 people out of all three Canadian cities that were ranked with 81.47.\nView this post on Instagram Here’s hoping that the week will get better 🤞 … It’s been extremely smokey here the last few days, and we spent the whole weekend indoors with most windows closed and the air purifier going. The fires on the West Coast are still raging and it breaks my heart to see all the devastation. It seems like this year is not quite done with us yet. Please stay safe everyone, and reach out to your family and friends. Even a quick “how are you?” can do wonders. #hopingforbetterdays #keephopealive #myportrenfrew A post shared by Markus McGruff (@markus_mcgruff) on Sep 14, 2020 at 10:40am PDT\nVancouver came in 23rd place out of 50 cities with a total score of 84.62.\nLike Toronto and Montreal, the west coast city did the best in dogs abandoned per year.\nIt also scored 95.31 for pooch-friendly hotels but got its worst score of 70.97 for pet-friendly restaurants.\nVancouver also has 58.86 dogs per 1,000 people which is the lowest of the three Canadian spots in the ranking.\nBack in August, there was a pop-up restaurant in Toronto that held dog brunch so that owners and their pups could get out of the house and enjoy patio season.\nSo it seems like canines love Canadian cities and Canadian cities love them right back.
