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 children (they’re family, so why can’t they participate in long weekend celebrations too?). It’s also a way to build awareness that the hotel is an incredibly dog-friendly one. You can bring your pet to the JPL any time of the year – but I’d recommend planning a trip especially for this paw-some weekend. We were so excited to take Olive and Artie to this event – joining 60 other dogs for an experience I think we’ll remember forever. 

Below is a short video I put together of our Dog Days of May weekend, and a recap of what to expect when you take your pooch to the Dog Days of May at the Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge! 

What to Expect at the Dog Days of May 

Dogs – Lots of Dogs

This was the biggest Dog Days of May yet! With 60 dogs participating in the event. Big dogs, little dogs, loud dogs, quiet dogs, fluffy dogs, short-hair dogs, there were all kinds of dogs with all kinds of personalities imaginable. If you’re a dog lover, this is probably what your heaven looks like. It was adorable to see which dogs started to play with each other, and which ones immediately became friends (like Olive and Miss Maddie the Dashie!)

Activities for the Pooches

As Mike said to me after I asked if he looked at the Dog Days of May itinerary, “it sure doesn’t seem like there’s many human activities.” Ha! It’s true, the itinerary at Dog Days of May is primarily focused on the pooches. The ‘Fun Zone’ Off Leash Area in the Outdoor Activity Centre is the main activity centre, with a dog agility course, doggy pools, lots and lots of tennis balls and frisbees to be thrown, and a ‘dog spa.’ It’s also the meeting point for dog hikes and nature walks. It’s safe to say Olive and Artie were exhausted after participating in Dog Days of May activities!

Food (and Activities) – for the Humans

The main meals of the weekend are included in your package and take place outside where the dogs are also running around, making for a very festive environment! It’s also the one scenario where no one cares that dogs are running around with and/or curiously poking their nose at food. We were treated to BBQ lunch and dinner buffets. Table centerpieces included Milkbones that the dogs also tried to grab. Lol. Fur parents could also chat with a dog trainer for obedience tips (K911 based out of Edmonton) and attend a doggy treat cooking demo to learn how to make homemade dog treats (I can’t wait to try at home!)

Beautiful Views

Spending the weekend with your dogs is one thing. Spending the weekend with your dogs in beautiful Jasper, Alberta at the Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge is on a whole other level. We were lucky to have gorgeous weather for the Dog Days of May, sunshine and blue skies the very picturesque JPL overlooking the Canadian Rocky Mountains and Lac Beauvert.

Loving Atmosphere, Excellent Staff

All of the Fairmont staff assigned to the Dog Days of May areas were clearly dog lovers – in fact they were spending their days off working the dog Fun Zone! Because the Fun Zone is off-leash, and supervised (so humans can leave if they want), you always knew your dogs were in safe and loving hands with this team who ended up learning all of the dogs’ names, and giving all of the dogs lots of pets, hugs and kisses goodbye. (Olive was a staff favourite!)

Lots of Dog Swag 

Dog Days of May is sponsored in part by Bone and Biscuit, and part of the Doggy Welcome included swag bags with a ton of great dog loot – like travel water bottles, travel towels, toy bones and crinkle toys, and lots and lots of treats. Each dog also gets a little dog bandana to wear (to help identify that you’re a Dog Days of May dog, and not just a regular dog). And there was a pop-up dog store (courtesy of the Fort McMurray Bone and Biscuit – thanks Kathy!)

Memories to Last a Lifetime

Olive and Artie had such a great time at Dog Days of May. They made tons of friends, ran a lot, ate a lot, and were just so doggone happy. Artie got a lot of lake time too, learning how to swim and just having the time of his life. Olive got an unbelievable amount of cuddles. Everyone (dogs and humans) were just so happy.

Gorgeous long weekend with my furbabes at the Fairmont JPL.

Mike and I were invited guests to Dog Days of May this year, and are feeling so grateful for the opportunity. We met some amazing dogs and their wonderful fur-parents, and it was just such a beautiful and busy weekend – one that we definitely want to replicate next year. As I mentioned, this year’s Dog Days of May was the biggest yet, with 60 dogs and 90 people. I can only imagine next year will draw even more people and pooches. Some of the suggestions I’ve made for next year include adding a doggy fashion show to the agenda (lol!) and a giant dog ball pit. The human food area is also merged with the dog food area outside, which resulted in some pretty beggy dogs, and close calls for dogs swiping food. There was also a minor dog biting to get food instance (but was minor), but still maybe worth considering splitting up the human food from the dogs (but still having them be in the same area). 

Here’s some additional information about the weekend for fur parents:

  • The package includes all breakfasts, lunches and dinners during the weekend so you don’t need to plan to go anywhere else or spend anything else on food while here, though we did visit the lounge a few times for drinks, chips and appetizers in between meals. Mike also wanted to note that each human gets two free drinks at the bar during dinners, lol.
  • It doesn’t have to ALL be about the dogs all the time – though that’s really why anyone would pick this package, right? For your dogs! But there are enough activities scheduled where most of your day could be devoted to your dog’s entertainment, but there will be times where your dog could just be in the fun zone and you can go off to do your own thing, or after a very exhausting day when your dog just wants to sleep back in your cabin, is another opportunity to sneak off on your own. There’s also opportunities to walk and explore with your dog away from the bigger group too!
  • The event is rain or shine, so we lucked out because it was gorgeous but the last few years it was pretty rainy. Something to keep in mind! We had an amazing time but I don’t know if it would’ve been the same in rain (though there were people there this year who had been in previous, rainy years and still had enough fun to want to come back this time lol).
  • There are a lot of dogs at this event – so make sure your dog is going to be okay in big dog crowds before you commit to bringing them. There were some shy dogs and some more outgoing dogs, there were also some dog fights (not serious), and some dogs that just wanted to sit by themselves in a corner (hey, you do you, dog!) But all the dogs were quite friendly and I think keeping your own dog’s personality and preferences in mind before attending something like this is super important (how socialized are they? Is this their first big socialization event? will they be okay if you leave them on their own with all the other dogs? etc.) 
  • Book early! Packages started at $534 per person (based on double occupancy) however those rates quickly booked up and the closer you get to the weekend, the pricier the rates (and you risk missing out because there is a sell-out point for the event). If you’re planning on attending next year, make sure you book it early on!

 

And below is even more photos from our weekend!


I hope to have many more weekend adventures with my pooches, and I hope the same for you!

Rostizado is a modern-Mexican restaurant that uses fresh, quality local ingredients prepared in traditional-Mexican rosticeria fashion: slow-cooked and hearty. Their platters are a must-try: with rotisserie chicken, beef, and Cuban-Style pork shoulder. We also love their crispy potatoes, roasted cauliflower and various queso dips. They have an awesome lunch deal and the churros are to die for. Rostizado has a great vibe, cool decor, excellent service and a meal here is always a good time! Their sister-restaurant @trescarnales is also a popular spot for tacos in the city!

Bรผndok is a pretty cool place on 104 Street, serving up delicious and beautifully-plated food. Their brunch menu includes both bistro and brunch options. There's french toast, eggs benny, omelettes and sausages, but the bistro dishes are my favourite - like sea bream crudo and chicken liver. Yuuuum!! Although this giveaway is for brunch, you also have to try their regular lunch and dinner menu. Bรผndok's gnocchi is unbelievable. Bรผndok should most certainly be on your list for a visit!

Pampa's Brazilian churrascaria provides unlimited fire-roasted select cuts of AAA Alberta beef, pork, chicken and lamb, served table-side. I love their rump steak! They also have a huge salad bar and unbelievably delicious Brazilian cheese buns (#paodequeijo!) Pampa has two Edmonton locations (downtown + Ellerslie) and one location in Calgary!
