Dog Beaches In Canada

Spanish Bank West is one of the Dog friendly Beach that allow Dogs in and off leach in Vancouver. Also there is Sun Set Beach sited between Thurlow and Bute Streets, it has off leash area for your dogs, it is south of Vancouver Aquatic Centre with good parking space. Gonzales Beach in Victoria, has limited off leach times and Dogs need to be supervised and controlled. Dogs can only be off leash from September 1 to May 31 ,24 hours a day. Dogs are not allowed on the public beach from March 1 to April 30 yearly and from June 1 to August 31 because of annual Brant migration.

Victoria city is a dog friendly city. They used to have a program that is called Paws in Parks, so now Dallas Road and Gonzales Beach is not the only Beachs that allow off leash areas.
There is six more parks with off leash areas and they are---Alexander, Arbutus, Oswald, Redfern, Topaz and Vic West, but this ones are under consideration ---Pemberton Park, Banfield Park, Songhees Hilltop Park and Fisherman's Wharf Park. In Rainbow Park in Whistler, Canada there is an area for dogs to actually swim and play off leash at Barking Bay dog beach, it is located south of the park.Also in Kokanee Creek Park in British Columbia there is a dog beach by the boat launch area at the northeast side of the park . There is a rule here which you have to obey . They have a leash at all times and are not allowed on the beach areas or park buildings; you are responsible for cleaning up and sure for the proper disposal of it,and only well behaved Dogs is allowed .
