Good trail manners are important no matter where you hike with your dog. Dogs are allowed in the National Parks in Canada but are required to be on a leash. A well mannered dog can be a pleasure to have along on a hike. An out of control dog can be a nightmare. Having trail manners can make the difference.
So, for the pleasure of everyone out for a peaceful hike, PLEASE leash your dog and practice good trail manners.
