Home Is Where the Bark Is: Denver Dog-Friendly Apartments

In some cities, finding a dog-friendly apartment is harder than wrangling your stinky pup in the bathtub for fluff’s sake. Luckily, The Mile High is one of the most dog-friendly cities in the country, and boasts 11,000+ dog-friendly apartments. When looking for an apartment, consider your pup’s lifestyle and priorities, such as whether she needs on-site dog parks/dog runs and washes, close proximity to city parks, or if she has a preference between carpeting or laminate. Narrowing down your search can be difficult, so we sniffed out 12 Denver dog-friendly apartments in three categories: budget-friendly, mid-range, and luxury with all the bells and whistles.
