Story by guest blogger, Luz Lopez (and her German Shepherd, Benz)
If you're anything like me, you love exploring new places and searching for your next, great adventure. Here in Olympia and its surrounding communities, there's a never-ending list our family enjoys checking off and adding to, and most of the time, Benz, our Shepherd, is right there with us. We thought you might enjoy our most recent excursion around Olympia, which, like most of the PNW, is pretty dog-friendly.
A few rules of the road:
- Make sure your pet is leashed while in public places (and when signage requests it)
- Bring along "poop bags" to take care of their business
- It's never a good idea to assume a location is dog-friendly, but if you ask politely, 9 times out of 10 your pet will be allowed to be with you at many locations.
Ready? Grab your leash and a squeaky toy and let's head out!
