Having a pet in Jasper is a different than other places because we are in a National Park. 

Key Points 

  • All domestic animals must be kept under physical control (i.e. on a leash or in suitable confinement) 
  • Pets are not to be left unattended on campsites or in vehicles
  • It is illegal and extremely dangerous to leave your pet unattended in your car during warm weather. 
  • Allowing your pet to chase any wild animal in the Park is an offence. Pets are not allowed in some areas. Look for notices at trailheads and info centers to find out where these restrictions are. 
  • Clean up after your pet.
