Brass-colored bridges originally earned Saskatoon the nickname of the Paris of the Prairies, but that moniker’s since been reinforced by the flourishing art and food scenes here. Stop by and you can see Picasso linocuts at the Remai Modern Museum, before refueling at the award-winning Ayden Kitchen and Bar. Plus, just as Parisians parade about their city with their pooches, you can do the same in Saskatoon, thanks to the eleven off-leash dog parks. You’ll find plenty of pet-friendly hotels, as well – all bookable with Culture Trip.
These homey two-bedroom loft apartments suit families or couples who prefer a more personal place to stay – especially with a pooch in tow. The decor blends industrial touches, like chrome pipe and exposed brick, with gleaming kitchens, where you can whip up your best blueberry waffles for breakfast. If your pet behaves, you can slip out to take full advantage of the fitness center, spin studio and swimming pool. Four blocks from City Hall, you’re in the heart of the Central Business District, perfect for people-watching as you walk the dog.
This pet-friendly hotel in Saskatoon is only four stories high – handy if you have an elevator-shy pooch. You have a choice of contemporary studios with queen or king beds, or a one-bedroom suite with a pullout sofa. Grill your lunch or dinner on the barbeque in the picnic area available. While there are kitchens, if you’re looking for a fancy dinner, you’re only a mile and a bit from The Willows Golf & Country Club. Plus, dog-friendly Mark Thompson Park and Alexander MacGillivray Young Park are just 15 minutes away on foot.
