There’s nothing quite like a wagging tail to warm your heart after a long Canadian winter! This summer, three cities are encouraged to check out the country’s largest outdoor doggy pool party when Pet-a-palooza 2022 arrives for another year of pawsitivity, music, food and fun.

Described as “THE social event for dogs and their people,” Pet-a-palooza has become a west-coast sensation with it taking over city streets in Vancouver, Victoria and Calgary year after year.

This year, of course, is no exception, with organizers announcing the return of the furry shindig this sunny season – but it gets better!
