Westhaven State Park

This state park is about 80 acres with about 1,200 feet of ocean frontage. It has a parking lot that holds 132 parking spots and seven RV sites. There are also clean bathrooms and showers if anyone cares.

I came here in September and it was quite warm. It said 59 degrees on my phone but as you can see, I was walking around in a tank top on the beach. You will need your Discovery Park so don’t forget to bring it. If not, you can get one for $10/day or $30/year.

This isn’t an off leash park but the beach was huge, we walked down to an empty spot and the dogs got to run around for a while. We never ran into anyone at all. Awesome way to spend our Sunday. This is a popular surfing destination but they seem to stay in one area so we felt like we had the whole beach to ourselves. We did stick around to watch the surfers for a bit, we don’t get to see too many surfers in Washington so it was super entertaining for me. I didn’t take any pictures of them because I didn’t want to be a creeper.

Corgi Convention at Marymoor Off Leash Park

I think I’m going to start calling the meet ups Corgi Conventions. My friends started saying this when they were making fun of me and now it’s grown on me. I like the sound of it =) Today was a beautiful sunny day and it was the perfect day for the dog park. What’s better than a sunny day spent at the dog park? Sunny day at the dog park with 30+ corgis running around!

Someone made a comment about Umi being too skinny today. Now every time we go out, someone always brings up Umi’s size but today, I felt like this person was implying I wasn’t feeding my dog. It bummed me out, I quickly blurted out, “Well, they’re all on the same diet! I don’t know why she’s so much thinner, I think that’s just how she is.” I don’t know why I felt the need to explain my feeding ritual to a complete stranger but I so desperately wanted her to know I wasn’t starving my baby girl …

Anyway .. besides this little incident we had a great day! Check out the photos below!

Our First Barkbox!

Perfect timing for our first BarkBox! Right before Christmas! What came in our BarkBox this month!

  • Planet Dog Orbee Tuff Bulb – we put some treats in this toy and it kept the doggies busy for quite some time!
  • Superior Farms Lamb Biscuits – 100% natural lamb and it’s grain and gluten free!
  • Safemade Holiday Tartan Bandana – you can see Kenshin modeling it below .. sorta
  • Simply Fido Penguin with Crinkle Paper Body – my pups showed no interest in this but seems like a good idea. Sounds like there’s an empty water bottle in there and they love to play with water bottles lol so maybe they’ll warm up to it
  • Etta Says Duck Chew – crunchy and savory and they promote healthy choppers and gums! My pups chewed it up within a minute! so it’s safe to say they loved it!

Golden Gardens Park – Off Leash Area

This off leash area is big enough for your dogs to run until they’re tired and there are always other dogs to play with. There are multiple watering stations throughout the park but only ONE trash can for poop which I find super odd. I don’t like to carry poop around with me and I don’t want to keep running across the park to dispose of the doggies’ poop. I have to say this isn’t one of my favorite parks but I come here occasionally when I don’t have a lot of time because this park is fairly close to home. There is a separate small dog area but I don’t ever see small dogs in there. I don’t think I even noticed it until my 3rd time here. Oh and there’s a parking lot – that’s always a plus in Seattle =)

Corgi at Golden Gardens

Weeeeee! one acre of space for me to run around in!!!

Corgi at Golden Gardens

No you may not play in the hole I dug!!!

Corgi at Golden Gardens

You’re a big guy! But my answer is the same! This is my hole!!!

Corgi at Golden Gardens

Ugh seriously .. do I have to live in my hole to make sure y’all don’t mess with it?

Corgi at Golden Gardens

FINE! I’ll stay here all night to protect it if I must!

Corgi at Golden Gardens

Luther Burbank Park (Off leash dog park)

Located on Mercer Island, this park is easily accessible right off of I90 and it has its own parking lot. I’ve been here a few times and I’ve never had trouble finding parking. My buddies had a great time prancing around, chasing their new four legged friends and splashing around in the water while I relaxed and enjoyed the beautiful view of Lake Washington. This park is not huge and it’s fenced in so you don’t have to worry about losing your dog. There is even a cleaning station-it’s closed during winter which is fine with me. I wouldn’t want to spray water on my dogs in the freezing cold anyway >_<

Besides the off leash area, there are tennis courts, basketball hoops, boat docks, picnic areas and even a zip line for the kids!

Westcrest Park

I absolutely love this park! Located in West Seattle, it is approximately 4 acres and has a lot of open spaces for your dogs to run around and play. There is also a short loop trail that you can walk with your pals off leash. It has lots of drinking fountains – I have never seen so many drinking fountains at a dog park and it is always filled with clean water!

There is a small/shy dog area but I didn’t see too many dogs in here and it’s really small. I didn’t like it too much but the rest of the park is amazing!

There are some photos on a grass field. This is not a part of the off leash area. We saw a lot of dogs here playing fetch right next to the off leash area so we stopped by to check it out real quick. =)

Parking lot is about 150 yards from the off leash area. Dogs have to be on leash when walking between the parking lot and the off leash area.
