Lucky Dog Seattle is AWESOME! 11/13/2009

Good: I like the wonderful, clean appearance and smell! I like the staff; they are so friendly and my dog is always happy to see them.. Bad: I didn't like having to leave my dog at all - but I know he is in great hands at Lucky Dog.. Improvements: Parking can be tricky but that is really the nature of a Seattle neighborhood.. Other: I can't say enough good things about Lucky Dog Seattle. My dog loves the staff and enjoys going on the park runs to the off-lease dog park. He comes home tired out and happy. The staff is so friendly and they truely love the dogs. I've also used the on-staff groomer and the self wash (which was a really fun bonding experience with my dog). I'm so happy I found Todd and the staff at Lucky Dog!. more

We LOVE Lucky Dog 1/3/2008

We've dropped off our dog here a couple of times a week for over a year and, after checking out some of the other day care/boarding facilities in the city, I was amazed to see a negative review from anyone (although they also said they continued to bring their dog back for "years.") Lucky Dog is super clean, well-organized and well-run by people who actually know and love dogs. We have also used them to board our dog for up to a week at a time and she comes home happy, healthy and well-loved. The staff has been very open with us about the "Kennel Cough" (once) and any scratches (once) while the dogs were playing (how disorderly of them pooches). I didn't feel at all that their call to me was fear-driven or overly cautious - in fact it was refreshing to have someone else care about my dog as much as I do and want to be up front and attentive. In these days of indoor and outdoor dog parks that feel as though you're letting your dog off to play in the equivalent of a very crowded toilet, I feel safe and secure leaving her at Lucky Dog. Great dog wash facilities, too! more

This place has deteriorated in the past year 12/28/2007

My dog used to enjoy boarding here. Now, he whines and resists getting out of the car when we pull up in front and is upset for days after a stay there. The change coincided with a change in ownership/management in summer 2006 that was not announced to patrons, I only found out about it months after the fact. The staff seems young and impatient to me. My dog suffered an injury here in Oct. 07 that was not reported to me when I picked him up and only came to light after we got him home (a cut that could only have happened while he was at Lucky Dog.) The vet guesses that a kennel door was slammed on his head, and said that it must have bled like crazy and could not have gone unnoticed by staff. I know that accidents happen with active dogs, but am not happy that they weren't upfront with us when we picked him up. We will not be taking our dog back to this place. Rates are cheaper than many, but it's not worth the risk to my dog's health. I'll pay more to have him better taken care of. more

Not-So-Lucky Dog 10/11/2007

Lucky Dog is a dog care and dog wash facility which I would avoid. The business has a typical small dog day care/ dog wash facility history...it has been sold at least once that I know of. My dog has gone there for several years, and for the most part they have done a good job both when I've gone for washes and used them for boarding. The bad news is that they are not dependable and have had some difficulties maintaining a facility which is clean and safe for our canine brethren. In July of 2007 about 8 months after they were sold to the current owner/operator, they had a problem with a dog (or dogs?) which gave many of the other dogs staying there "Kennel Cough." The owners/ employees were forthright in discussing this with patrons, however, the operations of the company started going South at this point. The management began complete overkill with "health issues." It got to the point of complete absurdity very quickly, with the management asking a long laundry list of new "tests" and requirements for dogs to stay there. The lousy part was that they changed the rules by the week, asking for "fico float tests" and "immunizations current down to the day." That's all well and good, and better for the dog owners that drop the dogs off there. The terrible part in the management execution of the new 'stepped up' health measures is that if you have an appointment to leave your dog there for the day or night, or for a bath, they turn you away at the door for something new every time you show up. Long story short--I have discussed this issue with other patrons and with two local vets and the consensus is that the management of Luck Dog doesn't know enough about dog health to have any idea of what they should & shouldn't be asking for. Both local veterinarians stressed that a dog facility was overdoing it and panicking if a fico float test was a requirement. For a dog that clearly does not have "worms" (that is what the test is for), both vets stressed that this was being driven by fear rather than necessity. If you are looking for a dependable facility for dog day care, dog wash or dog boarding, this is not the facility for you. more

We don't feel guilty leaving Rolo at Lucky Dog! 8/31/2005

Our dog is young and energetic. He likes to socialize with other dogs, so we board him at Lucky Dog. The dogs have their own kennels at night, but during the day they get to play because Lucky Dog also offers day care services. Rolo comes home pooped, because while we are away, he plays all day! The owner and staff are friendly, and it's nice to leave your dog with people who remember his name! Boarding is $25 a day. With an extra $5/day for walks. We paid for walks the first time we left Rolo, but were informed that we probably didn't need to pay for them because he used up lots of energy playing with the other dogs! more

Wash your smelly dog! 7/5/2005

This is a great place to wash your dog. Just show up and they provide a private room with ramp leading up to a tub, a bucket of supplies, towels and a water proof apron so you stay dry. All this for only $10! It's the most economical way to clean your pet. We go there once a month and my dog loves it -- he always gets a few cookies on his way out the door. more

Happy Dogs 6/27/2005

We have kind of a neurotic, bossy dog who doesn't always play well with others, but she does really well at Lucky Dog. They have an "old lady" area for dogs who don't want to run around and play hard with the others. The employees are all really sweet and handle the dogs well. The overnight boarding fee is $25, I believe. All-day daycare is around $20. They also have tubs and grooming supplies you can use to wash your dog, and their rates are great; we only pay $10 to wash our 25 lb blue heeler (larger dogs cost more). Lucky Dog is open on weekends, but you'd need to call for exact hours. more
