Porters Lake Provincial Park in Porters Lake, Nova Scotia is a very dog-friendly, peaceful getaway just 30 minutes from the City. halifaxdogventures.com Canada Trip, Canada Eh, Canada Travel, Travel Abroad, Nova Scotia, Dog Friends, Best Dogs, Places To Go, Coastal

Porters Lake Provincial Park

Porters Lake Provincial Park is our very favourite dog-friendly campground. Here is why we love it. First of all, it’s close to the City. It take only about 30 minutes to drive there from our house. Second, it’s beautiful. Many campgrounds have the lake or ocean nearby. With this campground, Porters Lake is right there. A large number of sites…

Point Pleasant Park in Halifax, Nova Scotia is the ultimate dog-friendly urban park. halifaxdogventures.com Vancouver Chinatown, Toronto Neighbourhoods, Urban Park, Cape Breton, Dog Park, Canada Travel, Nova Scotia, Dog Friends, British Columbia

Point Pleasant Park

If you don't know about Point Pleasant Park, you either (a) don't live in Halifax, or (b) live in Halifax, but under a very large rock. Point Pleasant Park is to Halifax what Central Park is to NYC. It's the motherload. It's big, it's beautiful, and it's very dog-friendly. My only hangup is there isn't a…

Herring Cove Provincial Park in Halifax, Nova Scotia is a stunning place for a seaside dogventure. New Brunswick Canada, Atlantic Canada, Crashing Waves, Nova Scotia, Dog Friends, Best Dogs, Seaside, Coastal, Destinations

Herring Cove Provincial Park Reserve

Are you in need of a generous dose of salty air, crashing waves and coastal views? Then you need an afternoon at Herring Cove Provincial Park Reserve. It's a treat for all of your senses. You'll spend the 1-hour trek (approx. 30 minutes each way) meandering along the rocky coastline. This has been one of our favourite HRM hikes to…

Conrad's Beach in Cole Harbour, Nova Scotia is our very favourite place for a dogventure on a sunny summer day. halifaxdogventures.com Nova Scotia Dog, Road Trippin, Dog Friends, Summer Days, Best Dogs, Places To Go, Coastal, Things To Do, Canada

Conrad’s Beach

If I could marry a beach, I would marry Conrad's Beach (... or is it Conrods Beach?). My love for Conrad's Beach is never-ending. In the future I will do a blog post about my favourite HRM beaches, and it will be about Conrad's Beach and that's it. I have heard people say that Conrad's…

Blomidon Provincial Park in Blomidon, NS

In terms of dog-friendliness, we give Blomidon Provincial Park two paws up. There are a number of sites that are large, private and well-spaced. Dallas was able to be off-leash whenever we were at our site, so she spend a lot of time happily wandering around the woods chewing on sticks and munching on as much…

Saint Andrews, New Brunswick ist ein Wunder . Algonquin Resort, New Brunswick, Freundlich, Dog Names, Dog Friends, Beautiful Beaches, East Coast, Strand, Natural Beauty

Passamaquoddy Bay in Saint Andrews, NB

If you haven't visited the oh-so-quaint town of Saint Andrews, New Brunswick, you are missing out on a time-honoured Maritime experience. You won’t find a better town than Saint Andrews to explore on foot and paw. It won’t take you more than an hour to walk the town’s perimeter. But of course, you’ll want to give…

Cape Split in Scots Bay, Nova Scotia is an easy favourite. But this is one dogventure that is more about the destination than the journey. halifaxdogventures.com Adventure Is Out There, Nova Scotia, Dog Friends, Best Dogs, Cape, Coastal, Destinations, Journey, Canada

Cape Split in Scots Bay, NS

Cape Split is an old favourite among Nova Scotia hikers, and for good reason. But this is one trail that has a lot more to do with the destination than the journey. The hike itself isn’t exceptional. It's the destination that makes it all worthwhile. At the end, the trail opens up into a grassy field high on top…

High Head Trail in Prospect, NS might be HRM's best kept (dog-friendly) secret. halifaxdogventures.com Nature Reserve, Travel Abroad, Canada Travel, Nova Scotia, Dog Friends, Best Dogs, Trail, Destinations, Explore

High Head Trail

The High Head Trail is part of an area known as the Dr. Bill Freedman Nature Reserve. I know I say this a lot, but this might be our favourite trail. The High Head Trail offers a varied terrain, without being overly challenging. The views are stunning. And at 4 kilometres each way, the High Head Trail…

Kejimkujik National Park in Annapolis, NS

We've camped in Kejimkujik National Park (or simply "Keji") twice: once "car camping" in the Jeremy's Bay campground and once backcountry or "canoe camping". Both are amazing for camping with dogs, but given a choice, we would pick backcountry camping every time. A secluded campsite, a private beach, and a weekend in the wilderness? It…

Crescent Beach in Lockeport, NS New Brunswick Canada, Open Spaces, The Province, Travel Abroad, Canada Travel, Nova Scotia, Day Trip, Dog Friends, Best Dogs

Crescent Beach in Lockeport, NS

Crescent Beach in Lockeport, Nova Scotia is truly a gem. It offers wide open spaces for running and playing, white sand, and sparkling blue waters. If you're looking to escape the City, head to Crescent Beach. It's the perfect day trip, offering a chance to soak up the sand and surf in near solitude. The…

Crowbar Lake Trail in Porters Lake, Nova Scotia, is a scenic and challenging hike that is very dog-friendly. halifaxdogventures.com Road Trippin, Adventure Awaits, Nova Scotia, Hiking Trails, Dog Friends, Garden Bridge, Best Dogs, Places To See, Destinations

Crowbar Lake Trail

Crowbar Lake Trail offers a scenic and challenging hike within the HRM. The trail is located deep in the woods in Porters Lake, which means the heat can get oppressive. We recommend this fabulous trail for a cooler day. The trail is a total of about 9 km each way (or 18 km return). We've only…

Chain of Lakes Trail

This 7-kilometer urban greenway starts at Joseph Howe Drive, across from the Superstore. It continues south to Bayer’s Lake, and then onward to Beechville, where it becomes the B.L.T. Trail. It has a paved surface as well as kilometer markers, so it's a nice trail for walking and jogging with your pooch. But because it's so well…

Cole Harbour/Lawrencetown Coastal Heritage Park in Cole Harbour, Nova Scotia is quite possibly my favourite place to spend some quiet (dog-friendly) time with my best friend. halifaxdogventures.com The Province, Stunning View, Canada Travel, Nova Scotia, Dog Friends, My Best Friend, Best Dogs, My Photos, Coastal

Cole Harbour / Lawrencetown Coastal Heritage Park

There isn't a great swimming spot. There aren't any designated off-leash areas. But for some reason that I can't quite put my finger on, we love this park. It's our happy place. Maybe's it's the stunning views (there are many). I think it has more to do with the peacefulness. It's a big trail system,…

Sandy Lake Park in Bedford, Nova Scotia is very dog-friendly! It has a year-round off-leash area that is perfect for strolling, fetching and swimming. halifaxdogventures.com Lake Park, Canada Travel, Nova Scotia, Dog Friends, Best Dogs, Places To Go, Things To Do, Destinations, Swimming

Sandy Lake Park

Sandy Lake Park has two different "modes": off-season and beach season. During the off-season, almost all of the park is off-leash. The only exception is the beach. Dogs aren't allowed on the beach any time of year, even if they're on a leash. We're okay with that, since the off-leash area is so wonderful. When the…

Dartmouth Common

When I first moved to the City, I dismissed Dartmouth Common because I just assumed it wouldn't be dog-friendly. Coming from Fredericton, a decidedly dog-UNfriendly city, I was surprised to learn that a downtown greenspace had such a generous--and beautiful--off-leash area. While we don't tend to go here on hot summer days because of a…
