That means that for every ten people, there is at least one dog. What a glorious statistic! Because of Calgarian's affinity for their pooches, the city has designated many off leash dog parks so that pups can run wild and free. Places such as Edworthy Dog Park provide acre upon acre of space for dogs to explore. Not a fan of dogs? Don't worry; the city also enforces strict guidelines on these dog parks to ensure responsible pet ownership and to be good stewards of the land.
