Once a silver mining camp, Telluride has grown to be a ski-lovers heaven, especially since the town sits at 8,750 feet above sea level. The small village lies in a boxed canyon, surrounded by towering peaks and thick forests, and is no stranger to fame. Known as 'Dog Town', Telluride has many well-kept dog-friendly trails, offers 2 animal hospitals, and dogs are even allowed to travel on the city bus.

An easy way to get between towns is the Telluride Gondola, a skyline transportation system that opened for public use in 1996. The trip only takes about 15 minutes and the fee to travel with the Gondola is affordable, and worth the price when you get to see the beautiful views of Telluride. Not only that, but dogs are also allowed onto the Gondola at no additional charge, as long as they remain on leash.

Still not impressed? Then head over to Mountain Tails, a dog-friendly store with all your pets needs and wants. The store allows leashed-dogs inside, and offers toys, treats, leashes, and premium food. They even have pet photography available, so get your one of a kind memories captured right here!

The town also features dog-friendly restaurants like the La Cocina de Luz and Baked in Telluride. All these places are excellent choices, but how will you be able to choose?
