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.

Good News for Seattle Dog Lovers

Good news for Seattle dog lovers: Seattle is dog crazy! According to Seattle Magazine, "With more dogs than children living within city limits, Seattle has officially gone to the dogs." This may seem preposterous, as most places you frequent on a regular basis like Starbucks or Safeway aren't exactly welcoming to our canine companions. But the truth is we live in one of the most dog-friendly cities in the United States. There are now more dogs in Seattle than children, by a lot: about 153,000 dogs to 107,178 kids, according to figures from the U.S. Census and the Seattle Animal…read more >
