Despite having lived in Oregon, I have amazingly never made it to Washington. And I’ve heard Seattle is super pet friendly so I thought I would do a little research. Here is what I found.
There is no lack of pet friendly accommodations in Seattle. Hotels and vacation home rentals are abundant. Multiple modes of transportation are also available for you and your dog. Check out all these options: city buses, the Seattle Ferry Service, Dog Gone Taxi, Argoys Cruises (water taxi service only), and Emerald Country Carriages. In fact, most of the ferry services are dog friendly. While browsing online, I think I even saw a seaplane tour that allowed dogs!
If you love gardens, Seattle has some astonishingly beautiful places to visit. And many will welcome your best friend. There is the Carl English Jr Botanical Gardens, Woodland Park Rose Garden, and Kubota Garden.
Check out this dog enjoying his visit at the Kubota Garden:
There are also a ton of off-leash dog parks, stores, and restaurants in Seattle. Even many of the farmer’s markets welcome dogs. And don’t forget the many parks in Seattle. A few fun parks to visit include Discovery Park, Blake Island State Park, and Green Lake Park. There is also the Sand Point Magnuson Park which also has a wonderful off-leash dog park where your dog can go swimming.
