Hi! My name is Siena and I am a recent college grad home for the summer in the greater Seattle area. I am a dog lover and a life-long dog owner, walker and sitter. I have experience with all types of dogs, but currently own a golden retriever puppy.
Opposite from the muttropolis of Seattle, you'll find the quaint little town of Medina, Washington. This peaceful locale is surrounded on three sides by, Lake Washington. A neat fact about Medina is that it's home to none other than Bill Gates!
If you're looking for a place to stay at Medina, check out Medina's Airbnb Rentals. Although AirBnB doesn't usually charge an extra fee to let pets stay, pet policies will vary based on the host, so be sure to double check pet policies before booking.
There are no veterinary clinics in Medina, but there are plenty within nearby Seattle which offer routine and emergency care to resident and visiting dogs alike.
While you are here, you should take a short day trip to visit the Bridle Trails State Park in Bellevue. This state park has a vast system of trails which you can hike with your dog by your side. The trails are dog-friendly, but your pup needs to be on-leash and well-behaved. Don't forget to bring water and waste bags!
In the vicinity of Medina, you'll find a pawesome Fido-friendly place: Clyde Beach Park. Keep in mind that dogs are not allowed on the beach from June 1 through September 15. They're allowed on the beach during the off-season, though, so get ready to make a splash with your pal here!
If you go south of Medina, in about 7 miles, you will find the Luther Burbank Park on Mercer Island. The park includes an off-leash fenced dog area at the northern end. There is a lot of space for your pup to run around and exercise here. A big plus is the shore area where your four-legged fur baby can play in the water and chase frisbees in the water! The park is covered in sand and also offers a doggie rinse station so you can clean up after having all that fun. Playing fetch in the water and running down the beach is the perfect way to spend the day with your best friend!
If you're looking for yet another dog park, this neighborhood has got you covered! Approximately 7 miles away from Medina, you'll find the Robinswood Animal Corral located in Bellevue. It's a beautiful park that has enough space for running and exploring. There is water available at the park and it's open from sunrise to sunset. There are also benches where you can sit and watch over your pup. The park is fenced and has a double gated entrance. The ground is mostly bark with some sand in the middle. Lots of tennis balls are available for playing as well. Poop bags are provided most of the time, too.
