Sure, Seattle is probably best known for its rain followed by Starbucks coffee, but dogs ranks up pretty high on the list as well. You see a lot more people packing up their dogs to go shopping these days, even big ones, and nobody bats an eye. Yes, service dogs are welcomed everywhere, but in Seattle, all dogs are getting similar treatment. Many offices here are dog-friendly, the city offers 14 off-leash parks and there are even a few indoor dog parks so your pooch doesn’t have to get wet.
If you are one of the dog lovers, here are a few more places that you might want to check out if you haven’t already:

"One of their team members stopped by my house on Lake Sammamish just two days before my property was to be sold at auction. I told them that I was under water and couldn’t sell. He insisted that I speak with Ky DeWald and Adam Mickelson to see if there was anything that could be done. I finally agreed. They were able to not only stop my auction and get me another 90 days in my house but also put over $125,000.00 in my pocket and sold my house for $1,550,000.00!!! I couldn’t be happier!!! Thanks guys for all the help!"
