Hi Lonnie,

Prince Edward Island is a great place to explore with your pet. Provincial parks and beaches allow dogs on a leash all year round. The only restrictions you will run into are at the PEI National Park. Your dog is allowed in the park in picnic and camping areas as long as it is leashed. However, dogs are prohibited from National Park beaches between April and October to help protect some of our at-risk native plant and animal species.

Beyond parks and beaches, there are a lot of stores and hotels in Prince Edward Island that are pet friendly. This link has a long but not exhaustive list. If you are going to take your pup anywhere and aren't sure just call ahead. Most places are pretty open.

Hope you and your good boy have a great visit to our lovely Island.
