The town we live in is pretty dog friendly. Where we are going, I don't know how friendly it is. Here there is Springtime in Paris, Summertime in Paris and Christmas in Paris events and I have seen dogs at all of them. The first year Springtime in Paris is where dh saw the 2 Newfie dogs and that's when the quest for another pack member began LOL.
The pet shop/pet bakery downtown held a Dogtoberfest and during the Christmas Tree lighting and downtown shopping night was selling gift baskets to benefit the SPCA, they were only $10 and not the type of thing most of us would feed our dogs, but good for the pet lover on your list.
I do know where we are moving to, there is a nice looking GSD a block and a half away, saw him out playing with his human when we were up this week and the next town over hosts the dog sled races every winter - very winter focused area. Hockey and skiing, snowmobiling, ice fishing... I bought a new snowmobile suit that has me covered to -50C, so I am ready LOL
Parks are pretty dog friendly, I always see a few dogs, though not a whole lot at festivals and outdoor things, but beaches up here, they have been ruined for the most part by irresponsible owners. There are very few dog friendly beaches and the ones that are, obviously are not kiddo friendly, for the most part, but we'll see how that changes when we move as well! 8 days, so excited.
