For those who have furry companions with separation anxiety, during select dates this summer you can bring your dog onboard the popular Stanley Park Train for free.
The Vancouver Park Board says dogs can ride for free every second Sunday starting July 16. Fares still apply for human passengers, except for children age two and under.
But of course, there are some restrictions and warnings.
All dogs must be on-leash at all times of the ride, and if your dog has a high drive for prey or is scared of loud noises or water, it might not be a good idea to bring your dog along for the ride.
As well, train staff have the right to refuse to board an animal.
The Stanley Park Train is a replica of the Canadian Pacific Railway engine and makes a two-kilometre loop through the forest of Stanley Park. This year’s summer train operates daily until September 4.
