Introducing Calla: A city girl who loves a grand mountain adventure
JASPER, 16 August 2022 – In celebration of National Dog Day (Aug 26), Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge (JPL) is expanding its Canine Ambassador program with the addition of Calla, a new co-Ambassador who will work alongside Stanley, the Lodge’s much loved ambassador of nine years.
Calla, a five-year old Golden Retriever, hails from Ontario and will part of the resort’s concierge team. She was born at Canadian Guide Dogs for the Blind (CGDB), and trained as part of their Guide Dog and Assistance Dog Training Program. Through this training, it was discovered Calla was incredibly personable, which made her well suited for their Mobility Assistance Program. With the pandemic putting a pause in her training routine, Calla pivoted in a new direction and headed her paws out west. She is now in a position to greet and welcome guests in the lobby of the Main Lodge when Stanley is off on his breaks.
To add to the new Canine Ambassador energy, Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge has also enhanced its pet offerings, which are available to all Furmont canine guests and highlighted in an updated Pet Amenity and Pet Brochure. Every four-legged friend will receive a plush dog bed, food & water bowls, doggy bags, a welcome treat and a special JPL-branded dog tag as a take-home souvenir. To enhance your pet’s experience in Jasper National Park, the pet brochure outlines many of the surrounding pet-friendly trails, hikes, and sightseeing activities that local Jasper partners offer to those traveling with pets, as well as any essential services such as the local veterinarian and pet sitting services.
Earlier this spring, Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge announced its very own Pet Menu, which took social media by storm. Pawrents can order dog-tailored dishes from The Great ‘Hound,’ the pet-friendly eating area surrounding The Great Hall, in-room dining, or as take-out to enjoy on outdoor adventures while exploring the beauty of Jasper.
This National Dog Day, treat your family member to the grandest of Furmont feelings and join the team in welcoming Calla to Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge! To book your pet-friendly stay, visit www.Jasper-Park-Lodge.com.
