They say a way to someone’s heart is through their stomach, but if you give them the choice between fries and a pug snuggle, you’ll find out pretty quickly that this is simply untrue. Whether you’re looking to bond with your furry pal, get some exercise, or just to pup watch, why not check out one of Calgary’s dog parks! Click the link above for our favourites.
