Whistler Pet Friendly Accommodation
Whistler is definitely a dog-friendly resort. Dogs love Whistler's wide open spaces, dog-designated beaches, miles of hiking and biking trails, rivers, lakes and fresh mountain air. Many of the outdoor patios allow dogs on a leash and often have drinking bowls. We've even got a doggie daycare to walk your pooch while you are on the hill.

Pets in Whistler
While you can be forgiven for thinking Whistler is a little dog crazy, you should always remember that not everyone is as keen on dogs as you. Please adhere to these regulations with your dog while visiting Whistler:
- Dogs must be on a leash and under your control at all times and this includes the Village, trails, and parks
- Dogs are not allowed on public beaches except designated dog beach areas at Rainbow Park on Alta Lake, Alpha Lake, and at Lost Lake Park's Canine Corner; see a Whistler valley map
- Please pick up after your dog; the Whistler Municipality provides plastic bags along the Valley Trail and in designated areas
- Never let your dog or cat out at night without you; there are predators that are more adapted to Whistler's environment than your "Spot" or "Whiskers"
Bringing your Pet to Canada
There is no quarantine period if your pet is arriving from the United States. However, all dogs and cats are legally required to have current rabies vaccination and papers when in Canada. You do not need a certificate of rabies vaccination if your pet is less than three months old. All animals must be in good health when they arrive. Always carry all your pet documents with you, including vaccination certificates, health certificates and import certificates when required.
If you are arriving from another country, we suggest you check with the Canadian Consulate in your country for the most up-to-date information on animal quarantines.
