Beacon Hill is a neighborhood of Seattle, Washington. The neighborhood has commercial areas with shopping, restaurants, and notable businesses with a live music venue that residents can access on foot. There are parks, greenway trails, and schools in the area that are also walkable for locals. 


The Seattle climate is temperate with warm summers and cool, wet winters. Summers rarely have extreme heat or severe storms and are generally sunny with little rain which makes them enjoyable for walking the neighborhood or taking your dog out. Spring and fall are warm but can be rainy and a rain jacket and umbrella will be useful for keeping dry. Winters are colder and precipitation can fall as freezing rain or snow, although these conditions rarely persist as daytime temperatures usually rise above freezing. However, when conditions are icy, you should avoid taking your dog on slippery surfaces. Dogs are particularly susceptible to pelvic and hip injuries if they fall.
