Canmore/Banff/Lake Louise with 2 dogs

We are camping in Canmore w our RV, son and 2 large dogs. We could not acquire kennels as they are booked. Any experience navigating these lovely places w pets on a leash? All guidance is greatly appreciated.

Walking around with your dogs on leashes is totally ok, the Bow Valley is super dog-friendly! It is important that they always stay on the leashes, but both Banff & Canmore do have off-leash areas if you want to let them run around.

In the towns themselves, some businesses will allow dogs inside, and most dining establishments with street-level patios will let them hang out nearby. It's always a good idea to double-check with them though!

Also, the visitor centres have lists of dog-friendly activities if you wanted to check those out.

We hope you enjoy your time in the Rockies!
