From the author of 50 Best Dog Walks Around Victoria and Southeastern Vancouver Island, comes a new, expanded guidebook to dog-friendly walks and hikes on Vancouver Island.
Most dog owners are confused about the different dog-walking rules and restrictions because of the many different jurisdictions on Vancouver Island. Newcomers to the Island or tourists that travel with their dog have even more difficulty trying to find logic in the maze of confusing dog restrictions. While many walking guides exist for different parts of Vancouver Island, none of them say much about dog restrictions or indicate areas of special interest to dog owners.
Leo Buijs and his Catalonian Sheepdog, Ginger, take the reader to the best walks and hikes, swimming holes and beaches around Victoria. west to Tofino, north to Duncan, Nanaimo, Courtenay and Campbell River and east, to some of the Gulf Islands and the Saanich Peninsula. The book's handy layout with maps and star-ratings for dog-owners, with 'dog-bisquet' ratings for pooch, will take the guesswork out of where dogs can go off-leash and where not. Best Dog Walks on Vancouver Island promotes responsible behavior to foster respect amongst owners and non-dog owners in an attempt to secure favourable dog regulations on the Island.
This is an ideal reference guide for dog-owners that want to explore walks and hikes outside their regular living area. It is a must have guide for new-comers and tourists to Vancouver Island and includes maps, photographs and quick reference information on over 60 walks and hikes, best swimming holes, beaches and playing fields.
