The Hochelaga Inn is located within the heart of Kingston in a stunning historic building that is as grand as it is welcoming. Pets are welcome upon request and there is a lovely garden and terrace area where you can take them to get some sunshine. There may be a fee for bringing your pet, so plan accordingly. While your pets are welcome in the garden, it is imperative that you clean up after them if they relieve themselves, and you should ensure that they do not relieve themselves on the terrace. Each room comes with a full breakfast, and there is free parking on site. The Hochelaga Inn is just 450 yards from the Queens University campus and the shore of Lake Ontario, so you will find plenty of lovely green spaces where you can walk your dog. The downtown area is also within easy walking distance, as are a number of local parks and historic sites, such as the International Hockey Hall of Fame.

Travel in style with your pets

Travelling can be a little bit stressful for pets, especially if you are traveling in a car or taking them on a flight. If you want to make sure that your furry best friends stay comfortable and happy, it is best to bring some familiar items with you. A favorite toy or blanket, for example, can make a real difference to how your pet feels as you travel. You should also try to make sure you stick to their routine when you can. For example, if your dog is used to getting outside to relieve themselves and exercise two or three times a day, make sure they can do that if you are driving long distances. However, if your pet has underlying health conditions, it may be tougher to keep them comfortable. In these cases, book a virtual vet appointment with Vetster to get advice as to how you can help your pet cope with travel.
