The days of frantically searching out a pet sitter so the family can take off for the weekend are over. Since our pets feel like a vital part of our family, many of us are opting to include our pooch in family getaways. Seatac is not only a beautiful city with tons of great tourist activities for humans, but it’s also a lovely place to bring your dog. From huge dog parks to dog-friendly restaurants, a plethora of good times can be had for you and your pooch. These are three pet-related things to do in Seatac.
Washington Park Arboretum
The Washington Park Arboretum is a big peaceful park that is best known for its stunning selection of flora and fauna. It has many well-groomed trails, open fields, and even access to the lake. It’s large enough that you can avoid confrontations with other dogs if you prefer. It’s a perfect place to take your four-legged family member if you don’t have time to get out further from the city. You’ll love the lush landscape and the beautiful variety of plants and birds. The park is easily accessible year-round and there are many great pet-friendly hotels in the area.
Hill Rose Pet Resort
Hill Rose Pet Resort is a pet hotel with boarding, daycare, and grooming services all available at competitive rates. In fact, they don’t only take dogs, but also cats and exotic pets. They provide three dog play areas for small, medium, and large breeds, Hill Rose Pet Resort monitors your pet’s boarding zone 24 hours per day and 7 days a week using high-tech surveillance cameras to review and record all activities. Each pet’s intake, eating, waste, weight, and disposition are constantly observed to ensure a happy and healthy stay regardless of the length of duration.
Fremont Brewing and Beer Garden is basically a taproom and garage attached to the main brewery. They have large booths and tables and provide free pretzels for people and treats for your dog. Well-behaved leashed dogs are always welcome. Fremont Brewing has a neighborhood feel and was created out of love for beer made only with the finest local ingredients. Much of the ingredients the brewery uses is organic and fresh. As one of the newer breweries in the Seattle area, it is quickly growing in fame, and perhaps that’s because they love dogs as much as they do beer.
Vacations and short family getaway are always more fun when you include the four-legged family members as well. There’s something wonderful about our pets that causes us to relax and feel at home, even when we’re thousands of miles away. A quick doggie kiss or snuggles on the sofa, and our blood pressure declines and all our tensions fade. Plan to take your pet along on your next family getaway to Seatac and find out for yourself just how easy it is. A little pre-planning is all that’s needed to include your pet in all the family fun.
