Denver, CO: A Great Place to Visit with Your Service Dog

April 25, 2022

Known as the mile-high city due to its extreme elevation, Denver is a popular city for those who enjoy the great outdoors. This beautiful city is very dog-friendly and is a safe place to bring your service dog or ESA as you take in the sights and sounds of the city. If you’re hoping to spoil your service dog, or just want to see all the great places you can take your four-footed friend, here are our favorite picks.

Visiting Denver? This is the best hotel to stay at

The Kimpton Hotel Monaco located in Denver is part of a boutique collection of hotels that specifically cater to keeping your furry friend. If you have an emotional support animal (ESA) that you want to keep with you, it’s not always as easy to find an understanding place to stay. The Kimtpon Hotel Monaco is that place. They accept multiple dogs of any size in their pet friendly rooms, and even have canine amenities to go with the hotel room. They are located on 1717 Champa Street At 17th Street. If you want your service dog or ESA to feel just as welcome as yourself, this hotel is a great option.

Grab some eats with your pup

Service dogs are always welcome in restaurants, but your emotional support animal (ESA) often has to wait at home for you to return. If you’d prefer to bring your pup with you, Denver has a large number of dog-friendly places to eat. Here are our two favorites.

Forest Room 5

This restaurant has brought a little of the great outdoors inside. The beautiful outdoorsy d&eactute;cor will make your dog feel right at home, and your dog whether it is an emotional support animal (ESA) or just a furry friend will be welcome right at home on the patio. There are lots of different beverages available from craft beer to mixers, so this is a great spot for your happy hour as well as a meal. Their address is 2532 15th St Denver, Colorado 80211 if you want to check them out.

Bonnie Brae Ice Cream

Has your service dog been good and is ready for a little off duty treat? Take him to Bonnie Brae Icecream where dogs are always welcome. You can get your dog his own personal ice cream sandwich, made out of two dog biscuits and a little ice cream between them. Service dogs can come inside, but your ESA or furry friend is on the patio only. Find them at 799 S University Blvd, Denver 80209.

Go to a dog park

Denver has 10 dog parks to its name, and all of them are fun places to take your service dog for a little off duty romp. If you’re looking for someplace fun to take your beloved service dog or ESA, try the Railyard Dog Park. It has separate areas for different sized dogs, and is extremely large for a downtown dog park.

Your service dog will love a game of fetch or a walk along the wheelchair friendly paths. There is very little shade in the park however, so if it is a hot day you may wish to come in the early morning or late evening to stay cool while your pup plays. The park is located at 2005 19th St Denver, CO 80202.

Emergency? Take your service dog here

When your well-being depends on a service dog or ESA to help you get through the day, knowing the location of a quality vet is essential. We recommend Bear Valley Vet if you need medical care for your service dog or ESA while in Denver, Colorado.

Bear Valley Vet features a state of the art medical facility, and also handles emergency visits as well as the usual wellness exams and preventative care. If your service dog runs into a problem large or small, they are prepared to handle it.

Hit the trails with your dog on the Bear Canyon Loop

One of the best parts of Colorado is the many outdoor activities available. There are dozens of dog-friendly trails you can take your pet on, and they are among the most beautiful hiking trails in the nation. A good one is just 30 minutes outside of Denver for a pleasant, two-hour long hike.

If you are hoping for an easy hike that includes wide open spaces, wildflowers in season, and native wildlife, this trail is a good choice. Use caution when hiking alone or with just your service dog, as mountain lions and black bears do frequent the area. You can find the trailhead at NCAR Trail Head, 1850 Table Mesa Dr, Boulder, CO 80305.

Enjoy the Cherry Creek Fresh Market

Sometimes called the “Cadillac of farmers’ markets,” this Saturday market is open May through November, and features both fresh produce and gourmet foods from local vendors. Held at Cherry Creek Shopping Center located on 1st Ave. & University Blvd, parking is free during the market.

Dogs on leash are welcome, so you can bring your furry friend even if he is not a service dog to this busy and beautiful outdoor market.

Grab essential supplies at Dog Savvy

Dog Savvy has your dog’s grooming, food, and pet supply needs handled. This cute and trendy shop is beautifully set up, and the staff is friendly and welcoming. If you want the best possible shopping experience for yourself and your service dog, Dog Savvy is an amazing shopping experience in Denver. See for yourself at 1402 Larimer St Denver, Colorado.

Denver is full of exciting places to see and things to do. If you’re hoping to move here or visit with your dog, you’ll have no end to dog-friendly opportunities in Denver.
