In Vancouver I was abandoned on the dock trying to get to Victoria on island because they wouldn't let me board the ferry with my dog. I had to take a taxi on the ferry and my dog had to stay in the taxi at all times. The rest of the Country was much the same with the exception of the much more cosmopolitan and tolerant Toronto.

Looking into the matter, she found that problems like this occur "quite often not only at the airport but in Toronto proper. ...

She also found that the Greater Toronto Airports Authority (GTAA) which licenses the cabs and limos at Pearson has "bent over backwards to accommodate the religious demands" of the drivers.In Vancouver I was abandoned on the dock trying to get to Victoria on island because they wouldn't let me board the ferry with my dog.

In Toronto, . In Saskatchewan, . In Montreal, in Ottawa, and all across Canada, Muslim drivers have refused service to seeing-eye dogs. In London, in Nottingham, in Reading, and in Tunbridge Wells, taxi drivers have refused service to fares with dogs.Hey , first of all be prepared for a Loooooooong flight . Thankfully things went smoothly and he arrived safely . The only concern was the animal center at airport didn't pick our dog right after we landed (we had 7 hours layover) called the animal hotel after 2 hours to check on him and the answer was " we didn't pick him up yet as we are fully booked " that's when we freaked out and started to email them and contact our pet re-locator who knew someone inside . An hour later we got an update that he's at the center and he's in good shap . Now the 2nd leg of the flight was really bumpy and couldn't wait to land to see how he's doing, landed and went through immigration and all the paperwork ( we were landed immigrants) which took longer than normal . By the time we went out they guided us to the gate where he will be brought out ( a door right before u pick up ur luggage . I had plenty of poster on his crate with pictures of him and notes such as ( hi my name is .... Been flying for a long time , I am friendly and u may pet me ) which really helped the KLM staff were very helpful and they brought him out side on a big enough Cart given that he's a big boy 40K in a large crate that wouldn't fit in normal luggage cart they were kind enough to walk with us to the exist . The officer checked his papers and went out to find our cab. We pre ordered a large 4x4 vehicle through " city airport taxi Toronto" the car arrived within 10 min. Given that you are not allowed to take ur dog outside the airport area the cab driver was nice and stopped us a few meters away to let the dog out of the crate as we needed another hour to get home . Dog sledding operations exist in countryside areas, you won't find them within towns where there might be a bus stop or train station. Unless someone knows of a specific example I don't think there are any that you can get to without a car. You could maybe look into going to by bus and taking a taxi to the dogsledding place in Rob Roy, but it would be a long expensive cab ride and even getting from Toronto to Collingwood by public transportation wouldn't exactly be convenient. For outdoor adventure type stuff like that it's best to get a car.
