DDL will be hosting a special Greyhound Adoption Meet & Greet event for the Greyhound Pets of America Greater Northwest at our Elliott location TBA.
A number of adoptable retired Greyhounds will be there for everyone to meet or just to learn more about the breed. For more info email here.


We offer private training lessons in the Seattle area with you and your dog at either of our Downtown Dog Lounge locations or in the comfort of your home. Clients and their dogs have found better ways of reading posture, understanding proper conditioning and how to be fair with affection. And of course- the joys of consistency with “down/sit-stays”, the recall and loose leash walking among the favorites. Our trainers have a successful history with behavior modification from aggressive issues, house-training, separation anxiety and destructive behavior. As well as fun trick training and increasing drive in other obedience commands.

She may be new to doggy daycare but Clover the Malinois has already become a staff favorite. With her warm personality (especially if you have treats!) Clover will snuggle her way into your lap and into your heart.  Clover spends her days in the senior center where she can hang with the bustling staff and nap with her friends.  She will be shy at first but if you let her give you plenty of kisses she will soon become your lucky four-legged Clover.




Gus…Mr. April

A year ago, Gus was wandering the tough streets of Yakima, scrapping and hunting.  He had a 30 day stay in jail…the Yakima Humane Society and then a week at a rescue in an outdoor pen.  Gus was eventually rescued by Brenda and was so happy to come to Seattle and live the high life!  Gus’ first day at DDL was back in July of last year.  He quickly became one of the staff favorites.  None of us are quite sure what his breed is so he is our loveable Muppet.  (that’s a breed, right?) Other than his “job” at DDL playing and following wranglers to solicit cuddles, Gus loves his off leash time.  At Magnusson, he loves running and swimming, but her never lets Mom out of his sight.  Gus also loves his daily walks/hunts in Wallingford where he finds squirrels, possums, raccoons, mice, kitties, and lots of birds.  And of course he gets to say hello to passers by and other dog friends.  Around the house, Gus is usually found cuddling, sleeping or playing with his best friend Buddy the Chihuahua.  Gus loves to camouflage himself by finding something white to lay on.  Thank you Brenda for sharing Gus with us.  We are so happy he is part of our DDL family.
