Hope you had a good Tuesday! Today, I wanted to talk a bit about the wolf sanctuary about 60 minutes from Banff! If you love animals and are looking for something to do, then I recommend that you go! It’s 100% a must!
I loved my experience there! There are three different options you can choose when visiting. For one, you can do just a tour of the place- walking around and checking out the wolf dogs. Second, you can do a tour and do a behind the scenes where you can ask questions to some of the people who run the place. Last, you can do both of those options and be able to meet and pet the wolf dogs! Very cool experience!
I did the second option, because we did not book in advance. I recommend that if you are feeling more timid around the wolf dogs. You can ask as many questions as you’d like, get some great pictures and see some of the wolf dogs up close. We had a great teacher named Joel- he gave us a lot of information. The other thing to, was that it was one- on- one. There was only us in the group, so that was kind of cool too! If you want to get to know the wolf dogs first hand, make sure to book in advance! They are really accommodating and will try to get you in if you show up last minute, but just try to book in advance if you can! I recommend the second and third option if you are going to visit! It’s quite a small area, and you’ll find you’ll get through it too fast! These options slow it down a bit so you have a great time and are interacting more. Also, I recommend that you go for at least one feeding time! They get super excited and it’s fun to watch!
I hope you guys check it out and have a good time! It’s an amazing non- profit organization that spends their time rescuing wolf dogs! Most of the wolf dogs they get come from people who think they’re pets, others come from sad stories of abuse. So, you know it’s to support a good cause!
