One of my favourite hotels – The Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge – is always giving people more reasons to love it. The dog lover in me especially loves this: Each May for the last few years, the Fairmont JPL “goes to the dogs” with its Dog Days of May long weekend event (May 20-22, 2017)! From the JPL’s site: Enjoy the fresh mountain air, quality time with your four-legged companion and planned events and activities that will make for a great getaway for everyone! I’ve wanted to go the last few years but with planning the Edmonton International Cat Festival around the same timeframe, it never worked out. Since the fest is taking a break this year, I’m finally able to check out this awesome event with Olive and Artie and I hope to see you there too!
The Dog Days of May runs May 20-22, 2017.
The package includes:
Two Nights Accommodation in a Fairmont Room
Welcome Pet Amenity
Saturday Evening Doggy Welcome Reception
Sunday Organized Group Meals
Monday Group Farewell Breakfast
Nightly Pet Fee & Gratuities
Dog’centric Classes, Sessions and Scheduled Activities
And of course, the perks of being situated in the largest national park in the Canadian Rockies on the beautiful Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge grounds!
Rates for the Dog Days of May start from $534 per person based on double occupancy in a Fairmont Room.

The Fairmont Hotels & Resorts have always been pet-friendly (most locations have their own canine ambassadors! In Edmonton, there’s sweet Smudge at the Fairmont Mac). The Dog Days of May event was created primarily to build awareness that the hotel is an incredibly dog-friendly one and a portion of their pet fees actually raise money for the Hinton SPCA and Jasper Vet. Aside from that, the Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge understands people treat their pets like their children, and they really are an extended part of their family, so when you’re planning your family trips for the long weekend, why shouldn’t you be able to plan something special for your dogs too?
I’m really excited to see what all the woof is about (hehe), so I hope to see you at the Dog Days of May! The package might seem a bit pricy, but works out to around $500 per night for a couple (+ their fur pets), that also includes the group meals and activities. Factoring in all of the events + activities, I think that’s pretty well-priced!
