Fall has arrived! We are all beginning to feel the cold early in the morning! However, we still have plenty of beautiful days left for your pooches to play outside. This is the perfect time to consider bringing your dog for some extra exercise and socialization with all our other visitors! If you have kids in school and no one is home during the day, your pooch would very much enjoy running around with other dogs in a safe and supervised environment. Our caring staff will take great care of your pooch while you work, shop or get things done around the house. We would love to see your wonderful canine here at Playful Pooch.

Just click here to join The Pooch family!  Following a successful evaluation day we'll finalize those daycare or boarding plans for your pooch! For more information, please give us a call at 720-941-7529 and send your faxes to 303-565-1915.

Playful Pooch is proud to announce that its Gold Standard of Accreditation has recently been extended by the Colorado Association of Dog Daycare (CADD).  What exactly does this mean for you?  Well, CADD encourages its members to reach for a "a standard of excellence beyond the requirements for state licensure".  The regular, or standard, licensure covers facility-related criteria, such as "construction materials, space requirements and sanitation, but not behavioral evaluation of client dogs, or staff experience and training."  Each of these criterion is described in detail on CADD's website, which can be accessed at

The Gold Standard Accreditation is awarded to "demonstrate [a] a facility's commitment to provide the highest level of professional dog management and care."  There is an extensive application process that is required in order to receive this designation.  The criteria for the accreditation go as follows:

Behavioral assessment standards for client dogs
Staff training protocol
Primary staff trainer qualifications
Continuing education requirements
Annual pet first aid training

This is just another example of how The Pooch constantly strives to provide your pet the best in care in a safe and clean environment!

As evidence of our ongoing commitment to our customers and their pets, Playful Pooch was named a winner of a Gold Star Certificate from BBB (Better Business Bureau) Denver/Boulder, 2012 - for having no complaints in a three-year period!
