Pet-Friendly Things To Do In Seattle

Seattle is a dynamic, urban city surrounded by natural beauty, which makes it a perfect place to explore with your pet. In fact, people in Seattle have more dogs than they do children (it's true, we checked)! Before you head out on your great exploration of Seattle, be sure to read our pet-friendly guide below to make the most of your trip. And don't forget - all of our properties have pet friendly amenities such as secure dog runs and pet spas!

Norm’s Eatery

Norm’s is probably the most dog-friendly restaurant in all of Seattle. Everything is canine-themed here, from the dog photos hanging on the wall to the full dog menu. You can enjoy wings or a burger while your pup snacks on their own menu of turkey nuggets, Bow Wow Bowls, and dog-friendly cupcakes or ice cream. Norm’s also has plenty of fun events, like happy hour, bingo, and trivia nights. Dogs are allowed inside here, so it’s the perfect dog-friendly Seattle spot for cold, dreary days!

Address: 460 N 36th Street, Seattle

Your dog deserves a treat, too! Hunt down Seattle’s dog treat food truck, Barkery.

And don’t worry, there’s stuff for you, too (like specialty coffee drinks and pastries).

Constantly ranked among the top French restaurants in Seattle, Le Pichet also allows dogs at outdoor tables. Serving the Pine neighborhood since the year 2000, the eatery won’t mind if you feed your dog some of their rillettes de pork (or if you bring a water bowl).

Address: 1933 1st Avenue, Seattle


Washington Park Arboretum

Besides off-leash dog parks, your pup can head to one of Seattle’s gorgeous city parks with you. Washington Park Arboretum is a great choice. It’s free, dog-friendly, and includes 230 acres of gardens, walking trails, guided tours, and picnic-perfect spots.

When you're back from your day of exploring the city like a local, don't forget to wash your pup down in one of our on-site pet spas or let them burn off a little more energy in one of our secure pet runs!
