Hi there! I am so excited to meet your dog and take him to enjoy some outside world time! Walking and hanging with dogs are two of my favorite things to do, so the combo of them both is even better! I am happy to accommodate your dogs needs, whether the goal is as much excercise as possible or just getting outside primarily to get some good sniffs in.

Dog Walking in Empire

If you love small towns and crisp mountain air, you will absolutely adore Empire, CO. One of the few towns that proudly boasts about its über clean bathroom, Empire is home to around 300 people, so it makes for a great town to settle down in if you are looking for a homey place where everyone knows you and your pup's name! Pet parents might have to commit to a short drive to the neighboring towns for supplies and veterinary trips, but the outdoor activities Fido can enjoy are sure to make up for it.  

Once a local mining town, Empire is now a small community nestled in the expansive mountains of Colorado. This small town is just a short drive from big cities like Denver and is one of the last stops before the famous Winter Park Ski Resort. For a fun-in-the-snow daytime adventure, consider a drive up for some skiing alongside your canine. 

If you prefer to stay close by, you can leash up Fido and check out Butler Gulch Trail. It offers over 4 miles of nature to explore, and hikers can marvel at the beautiful waterfall on the trail. Be wary though -- this trail is only fur experienced hikers and their furry companions.

This mountainous neighborhood is not for those that are wary of nature. Locals of the nearby cities and towns often frequent the area to visit the 6.3-mile trail that features a refreshing lake and gorgeous fields of wildflowers and trees. Idaho Springs is just a short 30-minute drive from Empire, and both cities are right off the I-70, which makes commuting a breeze. Be sure to come prepared when visiting the area, as the snow can pile up in winter months! During warm summer trips, pups and their parents can enjoy a quick dip in the lake.
