I'm considering a road trip across Canada (I currently live in NYC) with my dog (a 65 lb Golden Retriever) and am researching budget, pet-friendly housing alternatives for the trip. Seems that most hostels do not allow pets and, while I've identified some pet-friendly hotels, the cost will add up quickly.

Just curious if anyone has ever traveled with their pet in any part of Canada before and has any advice regarding housing and/or pet-friendly parks/tourism attractions?

Thank you!
