dogs are part of our culture.
A typical Revelstokian has a toque, a truck, and a dog. We consider our pups to be part of our families and our community, and there are plenty of pet-friendly accommodations and activities in Revelstoke. Dogs are expected to be on leash around town, in our national parks, in our campgrounds, and on our paved Greenbelt trails. While we don't have a designated dog park, there are some good spots to let your dog stretch their legs off-leash.
Please be respectful of our community - keep your dog on leash where required or if you can't keep verbal control of your dog, pick up waste, and ensure your dog does not pursue local wildlife.
This page contains everything you need to know about pet friendly accommodation, where to walk your dog, and where to go if you need a pet sitter.
Dog Friendly Hikes
There are a lot of dog-friendly hiking options in Revelstoke, some on-leash and some off-leash. The Mount Macpherson trail network is a great option for off-leash hiking or mountain biking. In Glacier and Mount Revelstoke national parks, dogs must be on-leash at all times and are not allowed on the summit area trails in Mount Revelstoke National Park or the Connaught Creek drainage and the Balu Pass Trail.
Off Leash Areas
The best off-leash areas in Revelstoke are alongside the Columbia River. Check out this map that outlines the off-leash areas adjacent to town. Note that some areas are not accessible during high water.
Revy Raw offers kennel-free dog boarding in a family setting. There are a number of dog walkers and sitters in town to give your dog a safe and fun space for you to explore without them (when you have to!). Book ahead to confirm.
