Tips for Travelling with your Pet (in Hotels)

Tips for Travelling with Pets

One of the worst feelings for a pet owner is that ache when you’re away from each other. Vacations can be really hard. Mike and I have definitely been there and so, whenever we can, whenever it makes sense, we try to plan a trip where our dogs can come along too (thank goodness for dog-friendly hotels!) But we don’t bring Olive and Artie along on our trips before weighing…

Giveaway: Keep Pets Hydrated This Summer with PetSafe Canada Fountain!

PetSafe Canada - Pet Hydration - Dogs Cats Summer

This summer I’m helping raise awareness about the importance of keeping your pet hydrated as part of PetSafe Canada‘s Pet Hydration campaign! Did you know each day your pet needs 70 mL of water for every 1 kg they weigh? That means depending on their size, cats need at least 300 mL of water each day and dogs could need between 600 mL up to 2,500 mL!  In the summer,…

How to get more dog-friendly patios approved in Alberta

Photo Credit: Dong Kim Ever since I put together a list of dog-friendly patios in Edmonton, there’s been such an incredible wave of support from the community – dog owners and dog lovers alike sharing their suggestions for local restaurants and cafes whose patios either put out water for dogs, let dogs sit right under your table, or let dogs sit around the fence or rail close to your table. Some restaurants…

What to Expect at Dog Days of May (Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge)

Dog Days of May - Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge

Each May for the last four years, the Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge “goes to the dogs” for a weekend with its Dog Days of May event. The Dog Days of May is a weekend full of activities for your pooch! The Fairmont Hotels & Resorts have always been pet-friendly (most locations have their own canine ambassadors!) and the Dog Days of May event was created primarily to help people celebrate their pet…

  • My favourite person to get my #yegseglegs with! πŸ‘«@mikethyking & I killed it (if I do say so myself 😌) on @rivervalleyadventureyeg's segways yesterday while filming for @travelalberta's "Edmonton on Wheels" promo video! πŸ’• I actually wish I could segway as a primary means of transportation, it's so fun/easy (and you can end up going so fast it's thrilling! πŸ’¨)

  • Sunday Funday! πŸ’• Today we went on the 15-passenger @urbanpedaltours bike through @oldstrathcona with @travelalberta! We stopped at @elcortezyeg (for chips, salsa & guac 😍), @maltandmortar, and @situationbeer before renting segways & bikes from @rivervalleyadventureyeg! It was a pretty wicked day exploring Edmonton on wheels. I can't wait to see the video (not airing until next spring lol). I LOVE segways!! #yegseglegs πŸ€— See more from the day in my Insta Stories!

  • This week I made a ton of homemade #gyoza that we've been enjoying, and froze a bunch for future enjoyment. 😊 I was pretty proud of my dumpling pleat and overall flavour/texture. (Artie was too!)
