Seattle is home to 43% more dogs than children, according to figures from the U.S. Census and the Seattle Animal Shelter! And now, Seattle has an official web “spot” for the region’s dog obsession: http://www.SeattleDogSpot.com.
Moving beyond its original blog format, which launched in Fall 2010, Seattle DogSpot now features comprehensive local listings for dog-related and dog-friendly businesses, plus product reviews, events and other resources, all geared specifically to Seattle-area dog owners.
Seattle DogSpot is designed as a community where Western Washington residents can review and rate products and businesses, and share knowledge about raising and caring for pups in this dog-happy region.
“What makes Seattle DogSpot different from other business listings sites and pet resource sites is local depth and expertise,” says Seattle DogSpot founder Robert Pregulman. “We have over 1,200 different business listings, all verified to the greatest extent possible. Plus, we continue to fill our blog with a great mix of dog-themed news, offers and advice—everything a local dog owner could want, in one spot.”
The site’s business listings are divided into three main categories, each with specific sub-categories: Dog Spots (dog-friendly hotels and lodging, restaurants and bars), Dog Stuff (pet stores, products, food), and Dog Services (adoption services and rescue groups, boarding and daycare, grooming, photography, training, veterinary care and physical therapy, walkers and sitters, waste pickup). The business listings span the greater Seattle area, from Kitsap County to the Eastside, north to Everett and south to Tacoma.
