We LOVE to get out of the City to hike but sometimes we can’t make it out of Seattle. Adventure to us doesn’t always have to be big or extreme and there are a lot of places to explore right in our own back yard.
Seattleites are lucky to have so many off-leash dog parks to choose from. Some people only have one in their area and a lot of you don’t have any at all. On my last count, I found 20 in Seattle and the immediately surrounding area. There are even more beyond that. We decided that we don’t want to take that for granted.
We have some favorites, like the Edmonds off-leash dog park, but there are so many out there that we haven’t seen. I have made it our mission, on the days that we can’t get out of the City in our quest for adventure, to explore all of the area off-leash dog parks.
Now, I am very picky about my dog parks. I take a lot of things into consideration besides the standards like poop bags, garbage cans, water and bathrooms. I also look at how friendly the other users are, availability of places to sit, scenery, type of surface, probability that your dog will leave a muddy mess and other cool things in the area.
I will write a review of dog parks that we visit from a weiner dog, and a weiner dog owner’s, perspective. Weiner dogs are small, low to the ground and have fragile backs so a weiner dog owner might look for characteristics of the park that big dog owners might not.
We will be sharing these reviews for locals who don’t have time to go to all the parks themselves, for our traveling friends (That’s YOU Gus) so know which are the hottest dog parks to hit on your trip and for those of you who might make it to Seattle someday.
Is there anything in particular that you want to know about these parks? Leave a post and we will be sure to include your questions.
