Want Free Tickets to Woodinville Wine Walk?

This Thursday, April 17 is Spring Barrel Tasting in the Warehouse District. These dog-friendly wine walks are loads of fun, and I usually make a point of going with my pups and friends or family, but unfortunately this week I can't make it. My loss is your gain, though, as I have two free tickets ($25 value each) that I don't want to waste. If you want to check out this fun dog-friendly event, just shoot me an email at jenny@doggoneseattle. I can get two people on the "COMP" list! (First come, first serve). For event details, go here.

Puget Sound Off Leash on YouTube

If you visit off leash areas with your dog, you will want to check out the Puget Sound Off Leash YouTube Channel. Puget Sound Off Leash is a channel for the dog lovers of the cities in the Puget Sound area, providing a Dog Park 101 for several Puget Sound Dog Parks. One video shows the ins and outs of Dr. Jose Rizal Dog Park, overlooking downtown Seattle. I have never been to this dog park, but it looks beautiful and the views are stunning.

Since You Asked – How do you find dog friendly places?

A Note on Researching Dog-Friendly Seattle For those who have asked how I find dog-friendly establishments in Seattle that meet specific criteria (i.e. serve breakfast in Belltown), here’s a bit more information. If I don't know of an establishment that I have personally been to off hand, I typically start on BringFido which aggregates dog-friendly listings from various resources and crowdsourcing. However, as a general rule of thumb, I never rely on the restaurant listings as fact. Often times, listings are out of date and a restaurant no longer allows dogs. Also, a vast majority of listings are restaurants that allow dogs only…read more >

Health Mutt Yappy Hour on Thursdays in Roosevelt

Have you been to the Health Mutt in Seattle? It's not your average pet store!  They carry a wide selection of healthy food and treats, and fun toys you won't find at Petco.

Oh, and appetizers and adult beverages for their people. 382read more >
