“Wiggly butts drive me nuts!”

Hello Pet Parents! My name is Angie, and I can't wait to meet your pup! I'm that person who will immediately get down on the ground to love on all things furry before having a proper conversation with their owners, I can't help myself. I have 2 crazy babies of my own. Both rescues, one with severe anxiety bordering on feral, and both over 60lbs. So I'm used to big, crazy, shy furballs that need just a bit more time to feel comfortable. When it comes to dogs, I have all the time in the world!

Dog Walking in Lakewood

Lakewood, Washington is a scenic city with several lakes within its vicinity and a military base that is responsible for a lot of activity in the city. Lakewood was first known as Prairie, and it was used as a prominent Hudson's Bay Company fur trading post beginning in 1833. During the beginning of the 1900s, many spectacular homes began to go up in Lakewood that attracted the rich and famous and those who wanted a sightly summer home on a bright blue lake. The city continued to expand, and today it is an exciting place to live with plenty to do outdoors with your dog as you explore Lakewood together.

If you're looking to grab a bite in a city that embodies family and fun, stop in at Delong's Deluxe. This outdoor burger restaurant has an incredible selection of juicy burgers, milkshakes, fries, and chicken sandwiches. Your pooch can join you at their tables, and staff will likely bring out a bowl of water for them to slurp up. Now that your stomach is full, you can head off and make memories in Lakewood at their dog park or on the snifftastic city streets and paths with your best friend at your side.

West Lakewood is home to Lakewood's only designated off-leash dog park, and you and Fido won't want to miss it! Ft. Steilacoom is a 340-acre park with a trail system, sporting fields, a picnic shelter, an exciting playground, and of course, the dog park. The off-leash park has not one, not two, but three separate sections for small dogs, big dogs, and a separate one for shy or senior dogs! The park is scattered with benches and drinking water, so you'll have everything you need for a great day at the park with your four-legged BFF!

Tacoma, Washington is less than a half-hour drive from Lakewood, and it's a small price to pay to visit Owen Beach! This dog-friendly beach is scenic and fun, and it even has picnic shelters set up for grilling and dining with friends, restrooms, and plenty of free parking. Dogs must be on a leash at this beach to protect the wildlife (including seals!) that may show up on shore from time to time. But on a leash or off, you and your dog will have a great day exploring Owen Beach, and when it comes time to leave, you'll already be planning your next trip back.

In only ten minutes, you can drive from Lakewood to the Pioneer area of west Tacoma and the Chambers Bay Off-Leash Park and Beach. The entirety of the park is seven acres, but there is a separate one-acre area designated for dogs to be off-leash, and within that area, there is a distinct area for small, senior, or shy dogs who like to do their own thing. Chambers Creek is a beautiful part of Tacoma, and the Chambers Bay Park is the perfect place to explore all the outdoors have to offer while your dog enjoys the freedom of being off of his leash while he plays with other dogs.

In half an hour, you can drive from Lakewood to Federal Way, Washington which is where the French Lake Dog Park is found. French Lake Dog Park doesn't have an actual lake, but it was built on an old golf course, so there is plenty of room to run around, hills to go up and down, and sand pits perfect for puppers who love to dig. The park also has shade for hot days and lots of sunny spots, too. The 10-acre park is entirely fenced-in for your dog's safety, and it also has seating areas, drinking water for pets, and waste bags for your convenience.

Clarks Creek is an area in Puyallup, Washington known for its namesake tributary that leads into the Puyallup River. This scenic area of Puyallup is just over a 20-minute drive from Lakewood, and Clarks Creek even has its own dog park. The Clarks Creek Off-Leash is on the smaller side, at approximately two-thirds of an acre, but in that fenced-in space, there are endless opportunities for fun! The park has been filled with mulch to keep human and canine feet mud-free. This park is popular with locals, and it's the perfect place to meet friendly dogs and their owners in the area.
