Denver is one of the most dog-friendly cities in the United States. It should come as no surprise to find a wide array of dog parks throughout Denver and the metro area. A 2016 survey identified that the top dog breeds (even being mentioned on Match profiles) include Golden Retriever, Labrador Retriever, Terrier, Boxer, and Bulldog.

Any time you visit a dog park, be sure that your dog is sociable. If your dog is aggressive, be sure not to visit when there are other dogs present. You also want to make sure to clean up after your dog as that is a rule no matter what park you go to.
