Dog Friendly Whistler, BC
I’m lucky to call Vancouver home. A city with no shortage of natural beauty (the best kind!) and located conveniently close to Whistler, ski capital of the universe and home to lakes, trails, restaurants, extreme sports, spas and crazy good restaurants (I’m looking at you Bearfoot Bistro). But while the masses come for world class skiing during the cold months, my pooch and I wait until summer. Summertime finds us out and about, picking berries, frolicking on the beach, hiking the alpine trails and rejoicing in the dog days of summer.
What are you waiting for? Summer adventure beckons!
