Things to Do with Your Pooch from Regina Hotels
It’s not uncommon for humans to lounge in their rooms when staying at Regina hotels. However, if you’re travelling with a dog, especially one that has a lot of energy, it’s definitely in your best interest to get out and let them get some exercise.
Plus, it’s nice to be able to get out and explore the city, and there are plenty of dog-friendly activities you can both enjoy.
Get Your Groom on
If you’re in town for a social gathering, why not take Fido to a local groomer for some primping? Rather than try to groom your pooch yourself, let a professional handle it. There are numerous grooming specialists in town, including:
Shop for a New Toy
If you forgot to pack your pet’s favourite toy, or you simply want to reward them for good behaviour while travelling around pet friendly hotels in Regina, there are plenty of places you can pick up some treats and other travel necessities, including:
Hit up the Local Dog Parks
Until recently, Regina had just a single dog park to service a population of more than 230,000 people. Fortunately, city council has taken steps to expand the recreation areas where dogs are welcome. The most popular dog park in the city is Cathy Lauritsen Memorial Off-Leash Dog Park, which is easily accessible from most Regina hotels.
There are also a number of outdoor skating rinks that the city opens up in the off-season to provide additional off-leash areas for dogs. These include:
- Leslie Park (central)
- Mike Badham Park (south)
- Glencairn Park (east)
- M.J. Coldwell Park (north)
- Rosemont School Park (west)
Take a Hike
Located about 10km northwest of the city, the Wascana Valley Trails are worth the drive. This area boasts a 15-km network of trails that are perfect for walking, hiking, running and cycling. It’s also a great place to spend some quality time with your pooch (on-leash, of course).
Go Grab a Brew
You’re bound to work up a thirst when walking your dog, so why not quench it with a delicious pint of craft beer at The Malty National? While they might not openly advertise it, they certainly won’t begrudge the occasional dog owner coming by to indulge in a beverage. They even have a dog water dish on hand for just such an occasion.
