Holiday Events You Can do With Your Dog (BC) – 2021

The holiday season is full of fun events for many of us. And so often we aren’t able to take the four-legged members of our families with us. For those days when you don’t want to leave your dog at home, we have created a list of holiday events you can do WITH your dog.

Santa Photos for Your Dog

COVID-19 put a damper on Santa/holiday photos last year. This year many locations are back and offering Santa/holiday photos for your dog. Be sure to check the listings as several of them require that you book an appointment.
