Seattle has no shortage of year-round dog-friendly outdoor activities, but also no shortage of rain either. And sometimes your favorite winter hike won’t do it, and your usual indoor walks ain’t scratchin’ that itch. When your energetic pup needs something new, or more than a loop around the living room, sniff out our list of indoor dog parks in Seattle. 

Note: We have verified these locations are open and accepting new dogs. We recommend calling or making a reservation to guarantee pup some playtime. All locations require a copy of dog vaccination records before entry. 

1. Dogwood Play Park 

Dogwood’s outdoor/indoor dog park and human bar are worth a tail wag. Dogs big and smol have all been taken into considered with different play spots for smaller fluffs and gentle giants. Humans of all kinds (who are 21+) can enjoy the beer, cider, and wine selection while Princess gets her social on. 

Check out Dogwood’s requirements before you go. Entry starts at $15. Humans without dogs are welcome too. Yay! 

2. Martha’s Garden 

Buddy googled “indoor dog parks near me” cuz he saw rain in the forecast, and he prefers dry paws and pals over puddles. Martha’s Garden has an entire indoor dog park and bar to help fill pup’s and hooman’s social calendars. Grab a bev off the menu and watch your doggo have a doggone good time. 

Entry is $10 per dog and free for humans (dogless humans are welcome too). Sniff out park requirements and hours before headin’ out fur playtime. Check their calendar for puppy play, Samoyed meet-ups, and more. 

3. Growlerz

This place is full of all kinds of growlers, IPAs (important pup appreciators), Lil Pil-sner’s, and your wonderful woofer. At Growlerz, puppo can romp around their outdoor/indoor play park while humans (who are 21+) refill their social cups. Mr. pupular prefers butt-sniffin’ introductions…just don’t knock it till you try it is all he’s sayin. While he’s busy, you can sniff out the rotating food trucks.

Check out the visit requirements before struttin’ to Growlerz. Entry is $12 for non-members. Humans without smol fries are still welcome.
