Hi, I’m Kim. I’m very excited to be part of the Wag team! Dogs have always played an important part of my life. Even during times when I didn’t personally own one, there was always a special dog or 2 that a friend would share with me. My experiences have been varied with dogs of all ages and sizes. Just like people, dogs have their own special personalities. I believe this makes for great fun to spend time with and get to know their unique behavior. Taking walks in Seattle neighborhoods is one of my most favorite things to do – especially when accompanied with a dog! I promise to take loving care of your dog so you will have a happy and healthy dog when you are home!

Dog Walking in Seattle

Dog Walking Fun Fact #1:

If you have a pup that’s short on manners, walking is a furrific way to teach friendly skills. On a walk, you can practice proper leash etiquette and cordial greetings as you encounter people and other dogs on their outings. And the daily routine of regular walks helps to reinforce all the positive behavior you want your pup to display. With all the dog-friendly attractions, breweries and restaurants in Seattle, there’s plenty of opportunities for your dog to practice what they’ve learned.

Dog Walking Fun Fact #2:

As your best friend, your dog definitely loves to be with you. And with regular exercise, your time together can last longer. Daily walks can not only keep your dog’s joints limber, but they can also reduce their risk of potentially life-threatening heart disease and diabetes. Take a stroll along the Seattle Waterfront, traverse the coastline, or explore the lovely historic houses in Queen Anne to keep your pup fit.

Dog Walking Fun Fact #3:

Whether your dog has been pawing at the window to meet the neighbor pup, or hides from new furiends, socialization is the key to a happy dog. Not only does meeting and playing with other dogs satisfy social butterflies, but they can also help build confidence in shy pups which can reduce their fear and anxiety. With over a dozen dog parks in Seattle, your dog’s new furry bestie could only be a walk away.

Average Cost of Dog Walking in Seattle

If your dog needs to get moving without you, there are several dog walking businesses in Seattle to choose from. With varying lengths of walks, you could be paying anywhere from $18 for a 15-minute walk up to $40 for an hour. Many dog walkers primarily work Mondays through Fridays during business hours, and can charge an additional $10 or more for walks before or after those times, or on weekends. If you have more than one dog in your household, you could be shelling out another $10 per additional dog for your pack to walk together.

Not only are dog walkers with Wag! thoroughly vetted and insured, they are also pawsome dog lovers that look forward to pampering your pooch. On average, your pup can walk every day of the week, morning to night on 20-minute walks for $15, 30-minute walks for $20, and 60-minute walks for only $30. And if your furever friend has a buddy, they can join the walk for only $5.

Best of all, you can keep updated with GPS tracking on the Wag! app, as well as receive a report card at the end of the walk, so you’ll know just how much fun your dog had! 

Dog Parks in Seattle

Whether the arts and entertainment of the Seattle Center, the historic Pioneer Square, or the many green spaces spread throughout the city, Seattle has no shortage of things to see. If you have your dog in tow, Northacres Dog Park is a great place to start. This wooded 1.6-acre space in Haller Lake will have your dog feeling back to nature in no time.

If you have a big pooch that needs more space to roam, better head to Sand Point’s Warren G. Magnuson Dog Park. Offering both large and small dog areas, this park features the only beach in Seattle to allow dogs!  

For a more traditional dog park, the Golden Gardens Off Leash Area in the Sunset Hills neighborhood offers spaces for big and small pups, drinking water, benches and restrooms. Afterwards, take to the on-leash trails to enjoy pawtastic views of Puget Sound.

Stop and sniff the flowers at the Woodland Park Rose Garden before heading to the adjacent Woodland Dog Park in Green Lake where your furry friend can stretch his legs and enjoy some off-leash play on this landscaped acre.

While you may enjoy Capitol Hill’s energetic neighborhoods, rainbow crosswalks, and vintage shops, your dog may be more excited to see the I-5 Colonnade Dog Park. This half acre is sheltered under the highway and features a gravel terrain, making it woofderful during rainy days. Nearby, the Plymouth Pillars Dog Park offers a smaller play space with a furbulous view of the Downtown area, and a unique drinking fountain for both people and pups.

Hikers will love the sweeping views of Puget Sound, and the Cascade and Olympic Mountains while exploring sea cliffs, forests, and sand dunes on the 2.8 mile Discovery Park Loop Trail in the Magnolia district.

There’s no doubt that Seattle loves their dogs, and encourages them to explore their many parks. Keep your dog leashed anywhere in the city, unless in an off-leash area, and have the leash on hand when your dog runs free. Always bring clean-up bags on your adventures and promptly pick up after your pup. Dogs should also be current on their vaccinations and license before heading out.
