We currently have a wait list for new daycare dogs. If you would like your dog to be added to the list please fill out our application on the interview page.
We are a member only doggie daycare located in Denver’s RiNo neighborhood. We are committed to maintaining a fun and safe experience for all the dogs in our care and thus have created a member only community.
We keep the number of dogs we see on a daily basis small in order to provide the best experience for each dog in our care.
We believe that dogs need to have their social, mental and physical needs met to remain physically and behaviorally healthy. Our doggie daycare is designed to fulfill these needs in a healthy, positive environment.
A day here at Downtown Dog is structured so that dogs get to play, interact with the staff, get the rest they need and have positive behaviors reinforced.
We believe each dog is different and unique and for this reason tailor your dog’s day so he can get maximum enjoyment and benefit out of his time at Downtown Dog.
Our smaller size ensures that:
- The dogs know one another well and enjoy each other
- We know your dog and his/her likes and dislikes
- We are able to group dogs with their favorite play buddies
- Each dog gets individualized attention during the day
- The risks associated with group play are reduced
- We are able to keep our dog-to-staff ratio low (1 person: 10 dogs)
At the Downtown Dog we are dedicated to creating the best daycare experience for your dog.
For this reason:
- Our staff are trained in Pet First Aid & CPR
- Our staff are trained in dog body language and play group management
- We know your dog and we know your dog’s favorite buddies and activities
- We have a play yard and an activity yard to keep the dogs physically and mentally engaged during the day
- We have climate controlled indoor facilities for play during inclement weather
- We provide mental enrichment as part of our daycare program
- We manage the dogs with behavior cues like “leave it”, “wait”, “sit”, and “come”
- We utilize time outs to help teach dogs appropriate play and to help them learn to self-regulate
- We provide appropriate periods of rest and play to keep the dogs physically and behaviorally healthy
- We belong to numerous organizations that promote the best care in the industry
- We are dedicated to continuing education in behavior and play management
Day of Enrichment: $40
Because of our smaller size, doggie daycare is by reservation only.

We’re looking forward to meeting you and your dog!
“My Boston Terrier, Desmond, LOVES Downtown Dog. He’s been going here since he was about 8 months old, he’s now almost 2! When we get there in the morning, he can’t get out of car fast enough (and couldn’t care less about leaving me!! haha).”
“The staff here are friendly and always go above and beyond to ensure you and your pup are treated well. Our dog loves the staff and is always so excited whenever we pull up to the facility in the morning… You can tell they love dogs and want to ensure your dog is happy, healthy and well cared for while at the facility. I would not take my dog anywhere else for daycare or boarding!”
“I’ve tried several doggy daycares in Denver and my pup, Lotus, was always terrified to go back. Lotus LOVES Downtown Dog! She howls and gets excited the minute we turn on Brighton Blvd. When we get out of the car she pulls me all the way to the door. I’m so glad we found Downtown Dog!”
