Danville, Washington is a charming community located on Washington State Route 21, just shy of the United States-Canada border. In fact, the town has an interesting story due to its intriguing history. In 1912, a prospector working in the area found a gold slab which later turned out to be worth over $1,000. Many members of the community believe that the slab was part of a larger gold ledge, prompting many visitors to come search for the mystery gold. To this day, no one has found the gold ledge, though perhaps your pup will be the first to sniff it out! If anything should happen during your visit to the Danville area, there are two veterinarians within an hour and a half of the town.

If you time your visit right, you may even be in the area for the yearly tradition of the Curlew Barrel Derby Days, where a barrel is set adrift along the river and bets are placed on when it will reach the swimming hole!
