Dogs are selfless creatures that bring joy to our lives every day and all that they ask in return is a rub on the belly and some basic survival necessities. They’re always excited when you get home from work, are there for you when you’re feeling blue and will even find ways to make us laugh when we least expect it. In honor of our furry friends, here are 5 fun things to do with your dog in Seattle.

Splurge at a Pet Store

Surprise your pup by bringing it to a pet store that allows dogs. They will be surrounded by their own kind and will love the opportunity to socialize. Walk through the aisles and see if there’s any treat or toy that your dog pays prolonged attention to and buy it for them it – they deserve it.

A highly rated dog-friendly pet store is Mud Bay in Belltown. The store is open 7 days a week and is operated by a knowledgeable and caring staff.

Coffee with your Doggy

In Seattle, we love our coffee. If you’re a sane human being, you love dogs. Combine the two aforementioned things together and you have yourself a damn good time. Lucky for you, there are plenty of quality dog-friendly coffee shops in Seattle.

If you go in the morning, you can joke with your friends that you enjoyed coffee with your barkfest. Just prepare yourself because you might not have many friends after that.

Go for a Walk

This is one of the more mainstream things to do with your dog in Seattle and abroad, but its popularity stems from sound reasoning. Dogs LOVE walks. Just say the word and your good boy will instantly comprehend. The tail starts wagging, paws leave the ground, and excited panting ensues.

There are numerous pristine hiking trails in Seattle that you and your dog can enjoy together. In the mood for the ocean breeze? Take a stroll along some of the stunning local beach shores.

Visit a Dog Park

When you live in a large city like Seattle, it can be difficult to find large patches of grass for your pooch to frolic through. An answer to this troubling dilemma is off-leash dog parks.

The city of Seattle has officially designated 14 off-leash areas.  At these places, your dog is free to express it’s inner nature as it runs free and meets new friends.

Take a Scenic Car Ride

Roll down your passenger window and let your dog take in the sights, sounds, and smells of Seattle. Scent is a particularly important aspect of a dog’s car ride experience and existence, as their noses are much more powerful than ours.

It is believed that this is why they love open-air car rides so much.  As you drive between different locations they are hit with a multitude of different scents at a high rate of speed. Sensory overload!

BONUS:  Feline Fun

We didn’t forget about you cat lovers out there. If you’re interested in adopting a cat or just want to go de-stress by surrounding yourself with the adorable creatures, then you need to check out Neko Cat Cafe and Seattle Meowtropolitan.

At these locations, you can a sip a cup of delicious coffee while hanging out with lovable and adoptable kitties. Meowtropolitan also offers yoga with cats while Neko hosts a variety of events. You’ll have to a book a time slot, but it’s well worth it.
