Sniff out clues and crack the case with your pup at this fun dog-friendly Vancouver activity

Did someone say Sherlock Bones?

If you’ve been looking for something new to do with your pup in 2022, we may have sniffed out exactly what you’ve been searching for. Vancouver Mysteries offers outdoor mystery games where you can team up with your furry best friend to solve exciting mysteries while exploring the city. Offering 4 outdoor mystery games that run year round in downtown Vancouver, all of which welcome your pup to join in the fun and help hunt down the clues. Whether you fancy a spy game, an outdoor murder mystery, or want to go on a super hero quest, Vancouver Mysteries has an outdoor game for you and your pup. Games cover approximately 2km and bookings are for two hours. One of the best parts? You only play with the people you signed up with. Depending on the time slot, you may be competing against other teams for the top score.


Don’t want to head outside? They’ve got you covered. Choose from four virtual games you can play from home, including Big Top Werewolf - a game that has a pet challenge! Meet your friends online to solve the mystery at the circus and you will also meet Watson, the Vancouver Mysteries furry sidekick, who appears in the game as Professor Wigglebottom.


Vancouver’s very own Milo and Charlie went to check it out. “It’s a hard job sniffing out crime amidst all the treatos, but someone’s gotta do it. And we cracked the case!”



Their dad, Brian, said “Our Vancouver Mysteries experience was so much fun! We loved that it allowed us to explore Vancouver and learn new things while solving our mystery, and dog-friendly activities are always something we are excited to find.”
