Where to Take Your Four-Legged Friend in Denver this Summer

It is very evident if you walk around our beautiful city of Denver that we are quite a city for the dogs and I mean that in the literal sense. Everywhere you go, furry, four-legged friends are scurrying around enjoying everything this beautiful city and state have to offer just as much as we humans do. I know my family and I are our two dogs enjoy weekend getaways and dog-friendly events around town during the summer. Below is a list of some places that are dog-friendly to stay (for any out of town guests who may need a hotel) and a list of places to take your pups or events going on that they can attend:


Dog-Friendly Hotels:


The Curtis – 1405 Curtis St – If your dog is ready for the ultimate treatment then look no further then The Curtis. This unique downtown Denver hotel has a shout-out board for all it’s K-9 club members with their name and picture for when they check in with you. And let’s not forget the ‘Scooby Snack’ pack your furry companion will also receive which includes ice cream, a pick-up bag, a toy and food/water bowls for use while they stay.


Hotel Monaco – 1717 Champa St – There is no extra charge or deposit for any pups heading to this hotel no matter their size. If you want to head out for the day don’t worry, Hotel Monaco offers pet-sitting, grooming and walking services not to mention a day at spa with the Pampered Paws Pet Package which includes a bath and a pedicure.


Hotel Teatro – 1100 Fourteenth Street – This hotel really goes beyond the call of duty when it comes to carrying for your dog.

Hope you and your pups have a safe and happy summer!
