Top 10 dog-friendly spots in Colorado - Spring/Summer 2019
Colorful Colorado, the state that’s perfect for adventuring with your pup. There are beautiful trails to explore, mountains to climb, and fields to frolic in, but what else is there to do with your best furry friend? Colorado has some hidden doggo-friendly gems - the question is, which one will you choose?
Need a drinking buddy? Or a really cute wingman? Romero's K9 Club & Tap House might be the perfect fit for you. Not only is there local brew, but there is a dog park right outside for play! Before going, make sure to register your dogs and designate a driver!
