Steamboat A to Z: Dog Town USA

D Dog Town USA

Already known as Ski and Bike Town USA, Steamboat now has yet another moniker to hang its hat on: It recently was dubbed “Dog Town USA” by Dog Fancy Magazine for its care of canines. Dogs, which are considered just as much a part of the community as the people, are welcome across town, whether it’s at an outdoor restaurant or dog-friendly park. They also enjoy their own special activities, including the Poochy Paddle, in which dogs are invited to the Old Town Hot Springs to dip in the lap pool, and the annual Crazy River Dog Races as part of the Yampa River Festival, which has pups competing for longest river jump and best trick. With hundreds of miles of dog-friendly trails, Fido can stretch his legs and explore Steamboat to his heart’s content. And there’s even a dog station at the local car wash.
