Welcome to Wild Dog

Wild Dog Cottage in Capitol Forest is Northwest Canine's on-site day or overnight experience you and your dog can enjoy together in one of the Pacific Northwest's most stunning locations, Capitol State Forest. 

The longtime dream of Seattle Native and canine behavior expert, Cristine Dahl, Wild Dog is entirely human and dog friendly, designed to help you relax, find your feet, soothe your heart, and connect with your dog. 

Guests can take a guided walk, roam the connecting forest land, coordinate a group stay or event, or simply enjoy a relaxing undisturbed getaway.

Roughly 4 miles off hwy 101 at the same exit used by the Evergreen State College (104), Wild Dog is 5.5 acres nestled in Olympia's Capitol Forest. Backing directly to DNR lands with two trailheads on property, and over a dozen trailheads within walking distance, enjoy stunning surroundings with direct access onto over 110,000 square acres of one of Washington's most treasured wilderness areas. 

Hiking, nature walks, wildlife trails, fresh air, quiet, truffle hunts, seasonal foraging, native wildlife.
