The month of May is National Pet Month, and in an urban pet-loving city like Seattle, we’re highly set in our pet pampering ways. In a study conducted by the Estately blog, Seattle ranked #3 in the best US cities for our furry friends. Although Seattle doesn’t have as many sunny days as San Diego (ranked #2) or even Portland (ranked #1), we make up for it with our culture and communities committed to happy healthy pets. It may surprise some (but not most) to know that in recent years, Seattle’s dog population within the city limits has surpassed it’s children, and unlike many other fun loving dog cities, we even let our dogs ride on most public transportation; metro buses, ferries, light rails, and local seaplanes!
Along with the growing number of off-leash dog parks we have spread across the emerald city, owners can check the Seattle Dog Spot calendar for weekly activities, stop in and buy treats or toys at locally owned MudBay, or if you’re going on an adventure, REI sells over 150 products dedicated to dog-related outdoor activities!
