Visit Loveland

Loveland – it’s for the dogs! Bring your four-legged friend for a weekend to remember.

#1. Happy Puppy Hotels: The Embassy Suites Loveland is one of the top Embassy hotels in the world. One reason? Their dog-friendly property.

#2. Delightful Dog Parks: Don’t miss Loveland’s newest park, Mehaffey, that includes TWO dog parks – one catered to shy and small dogs. Fairgrounds Park has an easily accessible dog park and is right along the Big Thompson River.

#3. Rover’s Retail Therapy: Loveland’s many outdoor shopping venues allow patrons to shop and stroll – with their pooch! You will often see dog bowls and pick-up bags at The Promenade Shops at Centerra and in our downtown shopping district.

#4. Lake Livin’: Sure, humans love Loveland’s lakes – but boy do our pups love lake livin’! Boyd Lake, Carter Lake and Lake Loveland are all dog friendly.

#5. Sculpture – It’s For The Dogs!Chapungu Sculpture Park, McWhinney-Hahn Sculpture Park, and Benson Sculpture Garden are great for a quiet stroll with fido. As a bonus – Loveland’s love for dog’s can be seen in several sculptures around town. Find our great Dane for a ‘high five.

#6. Beggin’ For The Backbone: The trails at the Devil’s Backbone are even more fun with your pup. Plus, the rocks behind the keyhole provide some nice shade and a great resting spot for water, snacks and “attaboys.” Other hiking trails around the city offer up dog-approved experiences as well.

#7. Fido-Friendly Festivals: Many of Loveland’s downtown festivals are open to well-behaved pets. Don’t miss Big Beaver Brewery’s annual Running of the Weiners event for a dachshund good time.

#8. Canines And Craft Beer: Colorado casual is the name of the game at Loveland’s craft breweries and that means that you can enjoy Verboten’s Thinking of Something Orange or Loveland Aleworks Raspberry sour alongside your four-legged companion.

#9. Pamper Your Pup: Relaxation and pampering should be part of any great vacation. Pamper your pooch with a spa day. Happy Trails Pet Spa, Dog Bath and Beyond and Cosmic Dog are our top picks.

#10. Tasty Treats: Stop by Doggie Dips and Chips for freshly baked, healthy dog treats made in-house. Try some samples to find which one your trusted companion likes best.
