man and husky at Dawg DashThis past weekend, the WALLY team attended the 29th Annual Dawg Dash 5k/10k/Pup Run at the University of Washington, and there was no shortage of people showing off their Husky pride! One of the highlights was meeting tons of canine companions throughout the day!

We love our canine companions here in the Northwest and want to bring them with us on all our adventures! We’ve come up with a list of four places that are Fido friendly where you can enjoy having your special companion by your side for a little exercise and exploration.

1. Marymoor Off-Leash Dog Park – Redmond, WA:

These 40 acres of pup-friendly land allows your canine companion plenty of room to run around, meet other pups, and even take a dip in the river for a swim.

2. Double Bluff Beach – South Whidbey Island, WA:

If you’re feeling like escaping for the day for relaxation and want to enjoy the sandy beach with your canine, Double Bluff Beach offers just that! The off-leash section of Double Bluff Beach extends for a two-mile stretch with dunes and driftwood, perfect for a puppy playground.

3. Spruce Railroad Trail – North Olympics, WA:

Located within the Olympic National Park, Spruce Railroad Trail is one of the few National Park trails open to dogs in the state. It’s many scenic views offers hikers with ideal photo opportunities at the Punchbowl, just one mile into the hike.

4. Norm’s Eatery and Ale House – Seattle, WA:

Norm’s gladly welcomes canines at the restaurant where they serve lunch, dinner and drinks every day, and even breakfast on the weekends. Go to Norm’s on a Thursday and your canine just may help you score a few points during Trivia Night.

All these places are great for you and your furry companion to go and enjoy! Share with us! Where are some of your favorite places to bring your pup on a fun adventure?
