Solutions for Iron Mountain Hot Springs Guests with Pets

Enjoy a soothing soak at Iron Mountain Hot Springs and show your furry friend a good time too! Thanks to nearby dog-sitting services; it’s easy to safely leave your pet for a few hours while you relax, restore and rejuvenate in our geothermal mineral water.

A Dog’s Life in Glenwood Springs

Unless your pooch is a certified service dog, Iron Mountain Hot Springs is no place for pets. As pet owners ourselves, we appreciate that some of our visitors travel with their animals, and truth be told, sometimes pets make the best road trip companions—never complaining about the music selection or asking how much longer until we get there. 

While Iron Mountain Hot Springs isn’t a doggie destination, Glenwood Springs is, however, a pet-friendly town. In fact, canine companions are welcome at many hotels and lodges, and dogs can enjoy the city’s parks and trails right along with their owners.

Rather than skip a trip to Iron Mountain Hot Springs, why not leave your pet where he’ll have almost as much fun as you? Glenwood Springs has several reputable, reasonably priced doggie daycare centers that can give him plenty of exercise and social interaction while you’re away for a few hours.

Dog Hollidays Pet Resort, owned and operated by two veterinarians, provides half-day and full-day pet sitting options. You can even pamper you pet by scheduling a brushing—the equivalent of a doggie blowout—or a bath should he or she be in need of a little extra grooming. 970-930-6292.

High Tails Dog & Cat Outfitters is another great choice that provides doggie daycare every day of the week except Sundays. It’s run by a trio of local ladies who monitor play sessions. If the energy of the group is running too high, they may utilize aromatherapy and soothing music to induce calm. 970-947-0014.

The Shaggy Dog is another always reliable option, also locally-owned. Drop your furry pal off for a few hours of no-worry downtime for both of you. The full-service “salon” includes menu items like shampoo and condition, nail trimming, brushing and de-shedding, pet bathing and haircuts with a hand scissor finish. 970-945-0264.

When it comes to your pet, it’s safety first

If you’re traveling with your pet this summer we’d love for you to come visit Iron Mountain Hot Springs, just be sure to take care of your precious fur baby first. Never leave your pet in your vehicle or tethered while you sightsee. Instead, allow these pet-friendly businesses to keep your pet safe and engaged while you visit America’s only mountaintop theme park.

Make arrangements for both pets and people; see you this summer at Iron Mountain Hot Springs.
