What’s Pup in Seattle This Weekend

While you may be back to the grind after Labor Day, pup’s been resting up for another fun weekend. He’s got energy to burn, so gear up for some bark-worthy adventures in Seattle.

P.S. Don’t miss a single weekly event again! Pupscribe to our newsletter here.
P.P.S. Our Patio Leash™ is grrreat for outings and adventures of all shapes and smells.

1. Harbor Hounds

Skansie Brothers Park, Gig Harbor
Saturday, September 10, 10 a.m.–3 p.m.; Registration Required

Is your philanthro-pup looking for another way to give back besides providing you free emotional labor? Well look no further than Harbor Hounds! This event includes a dog walk, vendors, food trucks, and of course a dog talent show. While you’re having all that fun, you’ll be supporting the many community charities supported by the Rotary Club of Gig Harbor Midday. Bonus: Your ticket comes with a bandana and a wag bag of goodies!

2. See Spot Splash

Peter Kirk Pool, Kirkland
Saturday, September 10, 10 a.m.–3 p.m.; Registration Required

We get it, with Seattle real estate prices, splashing around in your studio apartment’s shower just isn’t the same. For the pup who wants more than a sprinkle but less than the expanse of Lake Washington, head over to Kirkland for their end of the summer dog event! Dogs are welcome to splash in Peter Kirk Pool, enjoy vendors and food trucks, and afterwards, enjoy some off-leash time at Lee Johnson Field just a short walk away. Select your time slot depending on your dog’s size; two dogs allowed per person. 

3. Ballard Makers Market & Bar Hop

Obec Brewing, Stoup Brewing, Urban Family Brewing Co, Seattle
Saturday, September 10, 1–6 p.m.

While your dog may not know how capitalism works, she knows that when it comes to shopping, small and local is the best! Join the Ballard Makers Market on their weekend bar crawl across three of Ballard’s favorite breweries. Whether you go to just one brewery or all three, you’re guaranteed to find something amazing from at least one of 30 makers.

4. C-ID Night Market

Chinatown-International District, Seattle
Saturday, September 10, 1–9 p.m.

Pup said she doesn’t want to fly cargo to visit Asia, so bring her to the next best thing: Seattle’s Chinatown International District. They’re hosting an open-air night market where guests can try international delights, shop local goods, and enjoy live music and dancing. Dogs are welcome as long as they’re on leash.

5. Puppy Play Date

Dog Yard, Seattle 
Sunday, September 11, 9 a.m.; Tickets Required

Every dog is a puppy, but how about a dog that fits the Webster Dictionary definition of a puppy? Teach your baby dog crucial socialization skills (and take some of the cutest pics for the ‘Gram) at Dog Yard’s Puppy Play Date. All pups between the ages of 4-12 months are welcome and human and dog treats from DDL Bakery, adult beverages, and coffee will be available for purchase. 

Midweek Bonus! Seattle Mariners Bark at the Park

T-Mobile Stadium, Seattle
Wednesday, September 14, 1:10 p.m.

Put me in, coach! Your dog’s a believer that “ball is life” and that’s practically all it takes to become a professional MLB player. While the Mariners may not be trying to sniff out a new outfielder yet, get your doggo in the stadium with Bark at the Park. Just make sure they’re leashed, we don’t want any fans on the field!

Looking for a new bestie?

Motley Zoo Animal Rescue

  • Whether your new friend barks or meows, find ‘em at Suite Restaurant & Lounge’s monthly Yappy Hour on Tuesday, September 13 from 4–6 p.m. You’re definitely encouraged to BYOP (bring your own pup) if you already have one, but if not, Motley Zoo Animal Rescue will be supplying a variety of adoptable animals. A portion of all cocktail sales made with Tito’s Handmade Vodka will be going back to the rescue, so let’s extend those weekend vibes to Tuesday!
