Downtown Dog Lounge is not your average doggie daycare!  We are a local, woman-owned business that grew from very humble beginnings in 2002. We have a proven track record of over 19+ years of dedicated experience in this field. We have many happy pups, many happy clients, and many devoted employees.   

At Downtown Dog Lounge (DDL) we provide doggie daycare, boarding, grooming, bathing, training and enrichment for dogs at three (3) locations in the Seattle area:  South Lake Union, Elliott, and Ballard. We also have a Dog Bakery in Fremont and a dog-friendly bar with indoor and outdoor dog parks in Ballard called the Dog Yard Bar!  

We are serious about our business and take pride in a work environment where diversity and teamwork are celebrated. Our purpose? We are leaders, delivering peace of mind in a safe environment by caring for every dog as our own.

We want our employees to love what they do! Those with a passion for pets, pioneering spirit, high attention to detail, strong organization, strong communication skills, and follow-through are usually the best match for our company and culture. Solid work ethic and integrity is also prized. We are a 24/7 business and let’s be honest - some of our jobs may not be very glamorous. If you’re a roll-up-your-sleeves person who also understands the important relationships between pooches and their owners, give us a look!  

We are proud to offer medical, dental, vision, life insurance and commuter benefits to all benefit eligible employees (Full Time). In addition, there are also several other perks and discounts for all employees to enjoy such as grooming services, treats, training, and the added bonus that all DDL employees are able to bring their dogs to work. 

DDL will be a fully COVID-19 vaccinated worksite as of December 1, 2021.  This decision was made to ensure our employees have a safe work environment to come to each day, as well as giving peace of mind to our clients.  

If you have a good work ethic, great attitude and the desire to grow... we want to meet you. Come grow with us!
