The City of Kamloops is so dog-friendly Tourism Kamloops actually has a doggie mascot – a Golden retriever named “Kamloops Kooper”. Kooper is especially fond of hiking in Kenna Cartwright Park and Peterson Creek, and wandering among the downtown sidewalk cafes where there are always doggie water bowls to help keep him cool on those hot and sunny Okanagan summer days.
While in Kamloops be sure to check out the Farmer’s Market on Wednesday, Friday and Saturday where dogs are not just welcome – there is a dog-biscuit table to satisfy that those between meal cravings. Also be sure to grab a coffee at Caffe Motivo’s dog-friendly patio.
So, start planning your summer getaway for the whole family in Kamloops.
