3 Countries You Can Confidently Travel with Your Dog

If you are someone who loves your dog so much you can’t bear to leave them at home while you are off jet-setting, why not consider bringing your dog along for the adventure? Of course, not every destination is suited for your four-legged family members.

But some countries are extremely dog-friendly, walking through the backcountry mountains or down the cobbled streets of Europe can lead to meeting great locals and give you some special with bonding time with your beloved pooch.

1 Canada

This country has one of the highest amounts of open space per person in the entire world. All those mountains, fields, lakes, and beaches are great places to bring your dog along. While Canada still has rules about bringing your dogs into food establishments and many stores or attractions, this destination is perfect for outdoor adventurers.

Whether it is hiking and camping around the impossibly blue glacier lakes of Banff National Park, playing fetch in the ocean along Vancouver’s Seawall, or enjoying the ferry trip over to Manitoulin Island in Ontario with the rest of the resident dogs in the area, Canada is filled with dog-friendly outdoor adventures.
