Seattle Loves Dogs

Image title

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:

K9 Fun Zone (

How cool would it be to go stand up paddling with your pooch? K9 Fun Zone can teach you how to “SUP with your pup” and you don’t even have to know how to do it yourself ahead of time. They will teach you and your dog on a super wide board with private and semi-private (two humans, two dogs) classes. Beginning classes are done on land before moving onto the water. On-land sessions (60 minutes) are $45 and on-water classes (also 60 minutes) are $65.
