Toronto – A Pet-Friendly City

September 20, 2019

Although Toronto is one of the largest, busiest and densest cities in Canada – it is surprisingly pet-friendly.

In fact, Torontonians love their animal friends. According to city planning staff, there are three to five dogs per floor in Toronto condos. There’s a growing number of dog-friendly establishments in the downtown area, and the general attitude to canine companions is a welcoming one.

In fact, Toronto condos are beginning to build in pet-friendly features to attract a clientele with canine companions – such as dog grooming services, dog parks, pet shops and pet-friendly cafes.

The Livmore is a great example. On the fifth floor of this chic, stylish downtown Toronto apartment building you will find a convenient dog-friendly area – which is home to a pet spa and an outdoor play area known as the “Bark Park.” This area, lined with artificial turf, features fire hydrants, benches and even a mini obstacle course for dogs to play on.

The pet-friendly aspects of the Livmore are just one of the many examples of how Toronto offers our furry friends a warm welcome.

What Makes Toronto Pet-Friendly?

Let’s take a look at some of the other aspects of the city that make Toronto a great place to hang out with your canine companion.

Welcoming Shops

Many of the boutiques and shops between Bathurst and Gladstone are dog friendly and won’t mind if you bring your pooch in with you while you look around. They might even offer water and treats for your furry friend.

Laid Back Breweries

If you want to enjoy a local beer, there are many places where you can bring your four-legged companion. For example, at local craft brewery Henderson Brewing, they host monthly dog friendly events and dogs are always welcome whenever you stop in for a tasting.

Green Spaces

There are many great parks and wilderness areas scattered throughout the city where you and your dog can get some exercise and fresh air. For example, downtown Toronto borders Lake Ontario to the South, so you can head down to the waterfront to take a stroll along the boardwalk.

There’s also Trinity Bellwoods park, which features a Dog Bowl off-leash area, where you and your pooch can hang out with many other dogs of Toronto and their owners.

Pet-Friendly Transport

Dogs are allowed on the Toronto transport system of buses, streetcars and subways – as long as it is outside of rush hour. So, you can bring your pooch on public transport and explore the city with them!

Canine-Loving Eateries

While most cafes and restaurants in Toronto will not allow your dog inside due to health and safety laws, there are still plenty of dog-friendly places to eat. For example, at Lick It Gelato on Queens Quay West, your pooch is welcome and they even sell a “doggie gelato” that is dairy and sugar free.

Living in Between – Home Renovations

May 10, 2012

As he embarked on a major home renovation project, Mr. Taub thought booking an extended hotel stay was the only way to bypass the dust and dirt. But when a friend suggested he consider a furnished rental in one of Delsuites buildings, Taub was thankful he had another option.

With the professional assistance of Delsuites’ on-call manager, Taub was able to quickly book a suite and effortlessly relocate his family away from the mayhem.

With summer around the corner, you may be ramping up for your own home renovation.
But let’s face it living in the middle of a construction site is no one’s idea of a good time.

While you probably can’t book a vacation until the dust settles, living offsite may even help you reinstate a semblance of order into your every day.

Believe it or not, while your home may be in a state of chaos, living away from it doesn’t have to be, according to Taub, “staying with Delsuites allowed us to be self-sufficient.”

Beyond the functionality of a fully-equipped kitchen and well-appointed living room, each suite also offers the simple yet practical comforts such as coffee makers, dinnerware and linens that make it seem less like temporary accommodations and more like a place you can call home.

Even if you’re not planning home renovations this summer, your family may be making a move to a larger (or smaller) dwelling. As every homeowner knows, between buying and selling, there are bound to be delays which may temporarily leave you without a place to live.


With more than 14 locations throughout the Greater Toronto Area, Delsuites provides an accessible and affordable alternative that will fit into your budget.

“We have apartment living,” explains Taub, “for the price of a hotel stay.”

Let’s face it whether you’re going through a home renovation or uprooting your family, you’re bound have unexpected expenses, but where you live in between doesn’t have to be one of them.

In fact, at Delsuites extending your stay will actually cost you less; proving that it`s possible to find a comfortable and affordable alternative to your home sweet home.
