Serving Seattle’s Pets Since 2002

Proudly woman-owned, Downtown Dog Lounge has been established in the Seattle community for over two decades. Our blend of safety-first approach and a diverse pet care menu has made us a go-to spot for pet parents.

Our Story

“My inspiration for Downtown Dog Lounge came to me when my dog Lily became sick with bloat. While she lay on my lap during her recovery, the plan for this business unfolded. I was always out of town for work and needed a trustworthy place where I could leave her. 
I wanted to know that whenever we were apart, I could take comfort knowing she was safe and being adequately cared for. She inspired me to create something out of love, respect, and complete appreciation for her life that was almost taken too soon. Thankfully, Lily fully recovered and was by my side when I opened the business in 2002.
At Downtown Dog Lounge, we strive to exceed your expectations. Your pooch’s well-being is our #1 concern. We want you and your pup 
to feel comfortable and at home when you walk through the doors. We provide live webcams so that you can check in on your dog anytime and text photos daily so you can see them even when you’re out of town.  Every dog and human will be treated with equal respect.  Please let us know how we can serve you best and thank you for trusting your pooch with us!”
