Book cover

New updated version of Best Dog Walks on Vancouver Island available

Guidebook has 77 walks and hikes for on- and off-leash areas

Courtenay author and dog owner, Leo Buijs, has just published a new, updated and revised edition of the popular dog-walking/hiking guide Best Dog Walks on Vancouver Island.

This updated guidebook has 77 walks and hikes that take the guesswork out for dog-owners as to where they can take their dogs off-leash and where not. The book also indicates level of difficulty, the length and condition of the 77 trails and how the dog would perceive a particular walk or hike. With this information, the owner can make the best choice for both the dog and himself to get the most enjoyment out of their walks.

Buijs and his dog Ginger take the reader to the best walks/hikes, swimming holes and beaches on Vancouver Island, from Victoria to Tofino, and from Sidney to Nanaimo and the Comox, Courtenay and Campbell River area.

The book is now available at Laughing Oyster Book Shop, Coles Driftwood Mall, all Woofies locations, Comox Valley Veterinarian Hospital and online at amazon.ca
