Pet Services Have Quadrupled in This Dog-Loving City




It’s a great place for pets — and petpreneurs.

Seattle is a bit obsessed with dogs — and that’s good news for pet entrepreneurs.

As of last year, there were 328 licenses for “non-veterinary pet services” in Seattle, the Seattle Times reports. That category includes businesses such as groomers, canine day cares and dog walkers.

The number has grown more than fourfold compared the figure 10 years ago, the Times reports.

The city “was one of the first regions in the country to really embrace the services,” according to the newspaper.


Many of the daycare facilities are decked out with a wide range of amenities. Full-time doggy daycare typically starts in the $700 to $750 a month range, before extras.

Phillip Kasdorf of CityDog! Club says the blueberry facial is a well-received extra at his business.

“The dogs love it and the humans love it,” he tells the Times.
