The New Dog Parent’s Guide to Calgary

First off, congrats on the furry new addition to your family! This is an exciting and hectic time for any dog parent, so we’ve collected a bunch of great dog parks, local business listings and resources to help get you started. Take a look around and then get right back to playing with your doggo!

Calgary Dog Parks

While you’re taking your pup out for exercise, you might as well find some beautiful dog parks to explore together. The City of Calgary has an incredible 150 off-leash areas throughout its multi-use parks. Just remember to keep on the leash outside of those designated spots. Now get out there and find a new local hang for you and your pal, and don’t forget to bring the poop bags!

Calgary Vets

Now’s the time to find the right veterinarians and clinic staff to guide you through your dog’s health and medical care. Whether it’s a 24-hour emergency clinic or a specialist who knows the exact preventative care your breed needs, we’ve collected some top options so you can pinpoint the one that works for you.

Calgary Pet Stores

The reality of pet parenthood is that you’re going to need a lot of supplies. It’s good to have a regular pet store on hand, as well as specific ones that carry that one brand of food your dog has taken a liking to. Get to know your options, pay your favourites a visit, and find the knowledgeable and friendly staff you like best.
