8 places to board your dog in Seattle when you're on vacation

Jun 24 2021, 8:15 pm

If you could have it your way, we’re sure you’d love to take your dog on vacation with you.

Unfortunately, until the world becomes more pet-friendly, we have to rely on pet hotels to board our pups.

It’s a good thing Seattle has so many great spots for pets; they’re basically going on a vacation of their own.

Here are eight of the best places in Seattle to board your pup:

Seattle Canine Club

Seattle Canine Club is so prestigious that it’s even got its own crest. While they don’t use crystal drinking bowls or fancy towels, the Canine Club does boast scheduled private mealtimes, three designated play areas, as well as shock-absorbing, 3/4-inch, wall-to-wall Tenderfoot rubber matting so that your pup doesn’t have to worry about hurting their paws and joints.
