3 Incredible Day Trips Around Calgary

day_trips_around_calgaryWhen you are living in Calgary, you don't need to stay in your house all the time. Part of the appeal of Calgary is that it is in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains and its proximity to some truly astounding places. With hundreds of hiking trails, ski runs, and natural wonders within a couple hours' drive, it's hard to narrow down a selection. But make sure you don't miss these, as they can easily be left off of your list.

These three places are a great place for any age and any size of family.

outdoor_activity_ideas_in_calgaryIf you are on a budget or want to get away from the crowds: don't worry, Calgary has you covered. With vast swathes of pristine green space within the city, you have plenty of spots to explore. Growing up in Calgary, one of the regular outdoor activities we would do was heading down to Fish Creek Park for hours. We would build forts in the trees with deadfall, splash in the water catching tadpoles, toss a ball or frisbee, and finish with a hotdog roast over a fire. We would spend hours riding our bikes in and out of the trees and get lost in paths we've never explored before. Places like this litter our incredible city, and each one has its own unique flavour and is worth exploring.

Where are good places to visit in Calgary with a new puppy?

  1. Nose Hill Park - on top of the hill is a large off-leash area that is plenty big enough for a young pup to explore. This one is mostly grass, brush, and dirt.
  2. Bowmont Park Off-Leash Area - near the river, this fenced park is great if you live in the NW. Though some parts of the fence no longer meet the ground, so keep a close eye on your pup at the south end of the park
  3. Edworthy Off-Leash Park - Here is where you can take your

new_puppy_trainingThinking its time to invite one of these fluffy friends into your home? Let's be honest, the kids are off of school for months. It could be a great time for them to train and bond the new little family member. In the last 6 weeks, 4 of the families on our team, all welcomed new four-legged family members into their home, some adopted and some are new puppies. 

Let's explore what a new puppy involves and share some resources for you to use along the way!

A New Puppy Routine

Just a few weeks ago, I, Jessi, welcomed a new member to our family. A rambunctious and wild, but soft and cuddly, 9-week old pup. The first few days were a whirlwind of chaos. The little furball nipped and chomped at everything and everyone she touched. She made messes
