Moving to Brampton looking for some info

Hi there,
Rowan and I will be moving to Brampton at the start of next month and I would love some ideas of where to take Row. I went and visited to look at places and we stopped at a couple dog parks so I know for the most part where they are... and they are a lot different then what I'm used to but I can adjust. I am mostly looking for trails and things like that right now Row goes for a run in the woods a least once a day if not twice and I would love to be able to continue that but I don't know where they are or even if I find some if they are any good or off leash. Also any play groups or meet ups?
And any suggestions for day cares? I think I might try Row at one maybe once a week just so he can play while I am at school or work.
Also any suggestions for a trainer? or Dog club? I love to get him into agility.
Thanks!

Hey! are you moving from Ottawa to Brampton? (watch out for the crazy drivers! here!!)

Where abouts are you moving to in Brampton? There are two dog parks I know of....both are off HWY.410....one is on 410/Williams Parkway the other way is 410/Sandlewood.

Brampton is known as the flower city....there are a LOT of parks here (leash required). If you are looking for a trail....try to find the "Etobicoke trail"- its mostly paved, but you can go from Brampton to Toronto using this trail system.....but Brampton has three main trails which run North-South...

WOW...check out this PDF guide...http://www.brampton.ca/en/residents/...lsPathways.pdf

Awesome thanks. And yes moving from Ottawa and I'll be downtown. I explored around Sheridan college and found 2 off leash parks which seemed pretty nice.

I strongly recommend white spruce! Located just north of bovaird on heart lake. There is an off leash park and a trail system. There are several different trails to follow.

A word of warning on the trails though. Some areas double as a disc golf course. During the summer the players are very conscious of hikers but there ARE blind spots on the course. If you play on the trails, just grab a quick map of the course and try to stay out of the path of flying discs Also, they had a huge problem with a leonburger a few years back that was allowed off leash. The dog attacked a good amount of people. If the disc golf people are a little rude, please understand a few of them had awful experiences with less reponsible doggy owners. Don't take it to heart, just have a good recall and they will be friendly

How far will you drive for meetups? There is a group that walks once a month - but the sites vary in distance & also a Toronto Meetup that goes to off-leash monthly as well.

I can recommend a good trainer in Oakville. We had 18 dobermans there doing agility last month & it was a blast. (although it poured & we were very, very wet.) It's too far for me to go on a regular basis, but some of the others do.

Nice. I haven't spent too much time in that part of town.

This is a good park....its pretty empty in the mornings, its still open. This park is huge...and the trail system is very nice as well, a lot of trails which aren't paved and lot of areas where you can let your dog loose and play fetch.

Do you have any more info on this? I am interested in knowing more about this...

Perhaps the OP can carpool?

I'm willing to drive up to about an hour (I'm used to driving a fair bit for everything where I live right now ;p) and I'm definitely open to carpooling though Row can be a bit stupid about sharing the car with another dog (working on it, which does require another dog lol).
That sounds great about the agility group and trainer in oakville I'd love any info you have!
Thanks for all the parks and trail info everyone! Row's recall isn't rock solid so I'll probably avoid the Disc golf place for now at least off leash.

In Brampton and today we went and explored a couple parks. Looked at White Spruce and a couple closer to my place. At the 2nd we visited Rowan had a blast playing with a Border Collie and a Sheppard mix, he passed right out when it got into the car Later we went to the 3rd place and just as we were about to leave I saw another dobe about to go in, I was tempted to stay but I was cold haha

Try heading to " Ching" it's a park by Central Park and queen st. ( he has to be on a leash though) or heart lake park somewhat trails , Williams and the 410 dog park is ok but kind of small although this is a leash less park and i believe only neutered dogs are recommended there. You can also try the badlands or clay hill they are located. Just north of Brampton google for exact location. There's also Bruce trail .

Did anyone mention clairville ranch? Its a great hiking spot with various trails. I LOVE hiking here. Ching is nice for long line play and distraction training.

ETA: At clairville the entrance to the hiking spot is to the left just after you enter their long driveway. Park before the gate and the hiking entrance is after the gate. I hope that makes sense.

Haha thanks I hadn't heard of it yet. I like hiking though I'm not in the best of shape especially for winter hiking haha is it off leash? And the directions make sense but will make more sense when I can actually see it
I'll have to check out Ching I need a good space to do long line stuff, where I lived before anywhere you went there were trees and then you just kind of want to never see a long line lol.

Its on leash, but no one, except a few actually keep their dogs on. Although from what I've seen most have great manners and call their dogs. In brampton, no one follows leash laws. Its no secret, really. You'll notice it I'm sure. Or it just might be my area, I unno. At any rate, I wouldn't worry about it at clairville.
