Pet owners and their furry friends have plenty of options for play, outdoor recreation and pampering in Colorado Springs, CO. Outdoorsy dogs and owners will love Colorado Springs' leashless dog parks, while shopaholic hounds and their humans will love the various dog-friendly stores.

Most of the shops at the Promenade Shops at Briargate display sporty yellow signs proclaiming Pets Welcome! Included in that group are Banana Republic, Bath and Body Works, Eddie Bauer, Express, Furniture Connection, Pottery Barn, Ulta Salon, Victoria's Secret, Yankee Candle and more.

After a long day of shopping and play, well-heeled visitors and their owners can retire to the luxurious Broadmoor Hotel where human guests can expect five star/five diamond treatment while their pets receive the same. Once Fido's appetite is whet by her complimentary treat, her gourmet pet food can be ordered from the Pitty Pat pet room service menu and served to her as she lounges on her custom Pooch Snoozer Bed.
