Seattle is one of the most dog friendly cities you can find. The first step to dog friendliness: every park is accessible to dogs. If you are taking a walk feel free to bring your pup with you.

If a park is not you style there are many businesses who allow you to bring your dog with you as well. While some areas allow service dogs Seattle takes this a bit further. Some employers allow dogs to be brought to work. More productivity if you are happy with your dog by your side.

There are many businesses that allow shoppers to bringing in their pets as well. If you have a dog that can resist the temptation of food there are even some restaurants that let you dine with your favorite pet.
