Get your brew on
Maybe your dog doesn’t have to be the center of attention all the time. Enjoy these dog-friendly events that are more about you (and brew) than your four-legged friend. But don’t worry: these Halloween events are at *very* dog-friendly establishments, so you will feel comfortable if you bring your pup along too!
- Wed. 10/29: Pumpkin Carving at the Leary Traveler
- Thurs. 10/30: Halloween Shindig with Victory Brewing at the Beveridge Place Pub
Get your pumpkin on
Picking out a pumpkin or exploring a corn maze with your pup is a memorable Halloween adventure. Don’t forget your camera: puppies in pumpkin patches are stinking adorable!
Unfortunately, many pumpkin patches are not pet-friendly because the farms often have livestock that may be spooked by dogs.There are a few dog-friendly pumpkin patches in Western Washington though. Most simply require you keep your dog on a leash and clean up their poo… easy enough! These pumpkin patches allow furry friends:
- Biringer’s Black Crow Pumpkin Patch and Corn Maze in Arlington
- Carpintino Brothers Corn Maze and Pumpkin Patch in Kent
- Mosby Farms Pumpkin Patch in Auburn
- Trinity Tree Farm Pumpkin Patch in Issaquah
We know some people feel goofy dressing up or putting a costume on your dog, but Halloween is only once a year! So, even if you skip the costume, get out there and do something fun in the Halloween spirit.
