The Dog Friendly Maple Ridge Program:
The Dog Friendly Maple Ridge (DFMR) program creates the opportunity for local business, if applicable, to welcome customers, with their dogs, to their place of business. The program, funded through a grant from the provincial government, is a joint venture between the City, the Downtown Maple Ridge BIA and the Chamber of Commerce Serving Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows.
Any local business in Maple Ridge can apply to join the program. Applications are assessed based on the ability to offer safe dog-friendly experiences to customers.
Dog owners are expected to ensure that their dogs are well-behaved when visiting a participating business and ensure that both the owner and the pet are complying with the relevant public health orders.
The City has six off-leash dog parks and citizens are reminded that dogs have to be on leash in all other areas. There are many great natural spaces and urban areas that you can take your dog along to, and these new ‘dog friendly’ business locations can be a destination as you explore the City with your furry friends.
