They don’t whine or complain. They’re easy to feed and walk. And they often just go with the flow. There’s no better travel companion than your pet.

If you’re planning on visiting the beautiful Alberta city of Medicine Hat, why not book into one of our pet friendly hotels in Medicine Hat and check out these fun activities and attractions you can do with your best friend:


Check Out Medicine Hat’s Downtown Dog Park

Medicine Hat is known for its beautiful parks, including many that have walking trails and paths, where you can walk your dog either on- or off-leash.

Located near our pet friendly hotel is Kin Coulee Park, which offers wide open spaces as well as walking trails and an activity level dog park, where your pet can run, jump and play off leash.

Other city parks to check out include Police Point Park, which offers grasslands and tree-lined trails to walk your dog on-leash, and Riverside Veterans Park, where you and your on-leash pet can walk to Strathcona Island and Lions Park along the South Saskatchewan River.

Cool off at Echo Dale Regional Park

Medicine Hat is known to have some hot, summer days, so there’s no better place for you and your pooch to cool off than Echo Dale Regional Park.

Located just southwest of the city, the park has grassland and wooded trails, where you and your pooch (on-leash) can walk or run. Cool off afterwards by going for a splash in the boating lake, which is also a great place to fish for rainbow trout.

Check out the Hat’s Very Own Doggie Festival

The Dogs in the Hat Medicine Hat Pet Expo is an annual affair that takes place at the Kin Coulee Band Shelter Circle. The festival celebrates all aspects of responsible dog ownership, and includes demonstrations in sheep herding, agility, police service, and more. You can also visit booths from pet rescue operations, kennels, clubs, trainers and more. Well-behaved pets are welcome to attend the festival with their owners.
