I just love this book! Canine Washington (by Cheryl S. Smith) is full of useful information about “where to play and stay with your dog” in Washington state, and it’s beautifully-organized. Each geographical location is clearly divided into helpful categories: dog parks, hikes and dog-tolerant parks, dog-friendly activities, dog-tolerant hotels and campgrounds, pet stores, doggy daycare and grooming, vets and emergency care, and shelters. In a complicated area, like Seattle, the parks and services are grouped by neighborhood.
It was published in 2005, so it’s a bit out of date (e.g., Seattle’s Barking Lounge should be added to the doggy daycare list, and San Juan Island now has an off-leash dog park), but that’s a minor gripe.
