Hi! I'm Robin, I am a Portland State University student who really likes dogs and would love to spend some time with them while also getting some exercise for myself! I'm probably best for smaller dogs, or very nice larger dogs! I live on campus and there are some lovely park blocks right here that would be perfect for walking dogs, if they are in that area.

Dog Walking in Durango

Durango, Colorado, is one of the best tourist destinations in the state for visitors with or without pets. The small community finds itself at the foot of the San Juan mountains and is surrounded by many magnificent sites. Furthermore, the city also has a lot to offer when it comes to historical sites, from the old railroad and mining buildings to various archeological digs.

The Durango area is perfect for the adventurous and outdoorsy type of people. The Animas River flows through the heart of the city and is a great destination for fly fishing, rafting, canoeing, and kayaking. The valley and the mountains also offer various hiking trails which can be explored together with your best, furry friend.

Dog owners that are looking for a quick round of exercise for their dogs should check out the Durango Dog Park. The park is a total of 6 square miles in size and is located on the lateral of the Smelter Mountain. Dogs can swim in the Animas River and run around without the confinement of a leash. There are several trails that run through the park.

There are many possibilities for lodging in town, even with pets. There are the more budget friendly options, such as Knights Inn and Travelodge, as well as more luxurious chain hotels like Doubletree and Quality Inn in town. It is also possible to rent a pet-friendly cabin, cottage or farmhouse.
