Rescuing A Dog In Calgary

Canada is a global leader in rescued and adopted dogs. Despite Canada’s relatively small population, overburdened Canadian animal rescues take in and rehome hundreds of thousands of animals every year from all over the world. Calgary is home to several highly involved animal rescues that care for stray, abused, and lost animals, and often provide spay, neuter, and veterinary services before finding each animal their new home. Rescue dogs make up a significant portion of Calgary’s total dog population and make for some of the most loving family members.

The Best Parks for Calgary Dog Walkers

Erlton Park

Roxboro and Erlton is an off-leash dog park with plenty of space for your dog to romp around and make new friends. Here you’ll find plenty of benches, large trees, a nearby river where your dog can explore by the banks, and a hiking trail with a stunning overlook of the downtown Calgary city skyline. Without the view, you might forget you’re in the city at all!

Bowmont Park

Bowmont Park’s fenced-in off-leash area features wide open fields that your dog will love running around in. You can also take your dog through the other parts of the park (on a leash, of course) where you’ll find beautiful trees, a bridge that crosses the Bow River, and the sparkling blue Alberta sky above you.

Tom Campbell’s Park

Tom Campbell’s Hill Park features a large fenced-in area so your dog can play without a care (and you won’t have to be afraid of losing them). There’s lots to like about this park for humans as well. You can take a seat on one of the benches that looks out onto downtown Calgary, walk the trails, or just bask in the space of this outdoor oasis.

Sue Higgins Park

Sue Higgins Park is a beautiful park right by the Bow River. Your dog will not get bored exploring its riverbanks, its open fields of the off leash area, and its walking paths where they can investigate the interesting smells of the trees and local wildlife in the park’s natural reserve. You and your dog will find yourselves coming back here again and again to escape back to nature.

Auburn Bay Dog Park

Auburn Bay Dog Park is the perfect place to take your furry friend to socialize and burn off some of their boundless energy. The park’s grassy fields, trees, and bushes will keep them occupied for hours. Lots of people come to Auburn Bay, so expect your dog to spend most of their time playing with other dogs.

Nose Hill Park

Nose Hill Park is a place where you and your dog can rediscover nature and run free under the wide open sky. Together, you can take in the breathtaking view of nearby mountains or stumble upon an old archaeological dig site. As you follow the walking trails, you might spot some of the locals– and by “locals,” we mean deer, coyote, squirrels, gophers, skunks, and porcupines. You and your dog will love the natural peace and quiet that you find in Nose Hill Park.

River Park

River Park is a spacious off leash park where your dog can run to their heart’s content. There are no fences here, but your dog will find plenty to keep their attention. They’ll happily spend their time playing with other dogs and exploring nearby trees and bushes. Meanwhile, you’ll love taking in this park’s sweeping views of Calgary and the Elbow River Valley.

Elbow Park

Elbow Park in southwest Calgary is the perfect dog park to take your entire family to; with a playground near the off-leash area,  you can keep an eye on both your children and your fur babies while they play. With lots of trees, bushes, and grass, you might feel like you’re not in the city at all – that is, until you catch the fantastic view of downtown Calgary from a park bench or a hilltop. You, your dogs, and your kids alike will all love this park and its space to run and socialize.

Connaught off-leash park

Connaught is a sweet little off-leash park nestled in the city. It’s fenced in, so you can let your dogs run and play without fear of them racing out into traffic. There are benches to sit on, and plenty of trash cans conveniently placed around the park so you can easily dispose of your dog’s doo-doo. It’s a great place to go if you want to stay close to downtown Calgary and not travel outside the city for your dog to have fun.

User Reviews

Spot has been a huge help for me since I moved and am now not able to get home to walk my dog as often during the day. The walkers reports and pictures are great! I have found the app and admin so easy to deal with. I recommend this service to everyone I meet that has a dog!!

Murray’s Owner – Jill

I’ve been using Spot Dog Walking Services for over a year now. I count on this affordable service to keep my dog happy when I am not available for walks. John, the owner is always helpful with any issues should they arise, which is rare. The walkers are so caring and and you can rely on them. I would recommend this service to anyone who owns a dog!

Arthur’s Owner – Donita

Spot has been a lifesaver for my two high energy dogs. The quality of walkers has been so great and the app is super user friendly, and the lockbox system works really well. My first dog is obnoxiously strong willed, but my second dog has a little fear aggression, so I’m overly cautious about who I let interact with her. Especially with doing a meet and greet beforehand, the dogs are so stoked and from the pictures you can always tell they are so happy on their walks!

Neither have ever even been to a kennel, doggy daycare, anywhere without me – my dogs are my life, and I trust few people with them!
