Whether turning Eko into a Rhodesian Ridgebunny or racing each other through the fields, we had a great time in Denver. Denver combines all the best parts of the city and the outdoors into one of the most incredible dog-friendly destinations we have visited thus far. We would have needed months and months to visit all the places we wanted to see, but here are the most awesome stops from our week:
There were plenty of pet-friendly spots to scope out in Denver
A.W.E.S.O.M.E Dog Park - Cherry Creek and Chatfield Park - Eko and I did a two for one stop at these parks and recommend them both highly. Both parks have vast tracks of land, a pond for swimming, and a good crowd of friendly dogs.
A.W.E.S.O.M.E Time Travel Trip – Dino Ridge Trail - As someone who has seen the movie Jurassic Park at least 76 times, I feel that I am entirely qualified to say that Dino Ridge Trail is awesome. The trail is a fun, informative hike and your dog will definitely be whipped after making the trek.
A.W.E.S.O.M.E Indoor activity – Zoom Room - Bad weather is a dog owner’s worst enemy. Luckily for dog owners in Denver, Zoom Room has you covered. For $5 you can take your dog through their indoor agility course. Zoom Room keeps you dry and sane!
A.W.E.S.O.M.E Hotel – Hotel Monaco - At Hotel Monaco the staff would look at me with disappointment any time I walked through the lobby without Eko as if to ask me, “How could you deprive us of more time with the puppy!?” No pet fees, plenty of pet amenities, and best of all, $10 pet-sitting in case you need to duck out without your pup. Hotel Monaco is awesome!
Denver is an amazing city and it’s a trip that your dog would love to take with you. With so many great outdoor hikes and activities, it is the perfect city to have a pet.
Storm clouds are rolling in over Salt Like so we need to get a move on to Mill Creek Canyon. If any locals have any indoor pet-friendly destinations in the area, now is probably a good time to share them!
