Best Places to Pamper Your Pet in Boulder County

Just because humans need to social distance doesn’t mean our friendly and active pets have to, as well. Boulder boasts plenty of options in the way of treating your furry friend to a little TLC. From resort-style dog boarding to boutique cat care, our pet-friendly city has something to ensure your buddy has a superb quality of life. Here are some of our favorite spots to take our cats and dogs! 

Foothills Community Dog Park

Allow your dog to drink in the fresh air and play with other furry friends while you enjoy the expansive foothill views of North Boulder’s Wonderland Hill area. Gather the gang and plan a socially-distanced meet up so your pups can get their energy out while you get your socializing in. 

Camp Bow Wow

Make sure your dog is in good hands while away on vacation or while at work by booking them a stay at Camp Bow Wow. This hands-on pet resort recognizes that pets are very much members of the family and assures its clients that they will be treated as such throughout their stay at Camp Bow Wow. While away at camp, your four-legged friend will receive plenty of exercise, playtime with others, and healthy, nutritious treats. They may not miss you as much as you miss them! 

Pampered Pooch Grooming

With almost 100 reviews and an average of 4.7 stars, Pampered Pooch is quickly making a name for itself as one of Boulder’s top dog groomers. It caters to cat and dog owners, while even providing a mobile grooming station so your beloved pet doesn’t need to travel to stay healthy, clean, and happy. Pampered Pooch Grooming also offers a self-wash station so when Fido gets dirty on the trails, you don’t have to worry about bathing him at home. 

The Dog Spot and the Cat Pad

While it appears that  Boulder has ample options for dog boarding, cat boarding facilities are seemingly harder to find. The Dog Spot and the Cat Pad offers luxury boarding for your feline and canine companions. When cats stay, they are treated to their very own suite – some even have views of the Flatirons. Toys and human interaction will keep them busy and stave off boredom while you’re away. Your cat never had it so good. 

Whispering Pines Pet Resort

This elegant pet resort sits on 12 sprawling acres and offers canine guests plenty of room to roam. Cats are treated equally as well with personalized and spacious condos. Grooming and doggy day care options are available for those looking to give their pup a fun activity during the workday. Animal caretakers are kind and patient, treating your pet as if they were their own. 


Dog care is the name of the game at Bowhaus. Staff recognizes that it’s always a little scary leaving your beloved pet with someone else, so they go above and beyond to make sure your canine’s stay is fun, safe, and enjoyable. This boarding, day care, and grooming facility is a favorite amongst Boulder dog owners. 

Cottonwood Kennels

Gunbarrel and Niwot residents love Cottonwood Kennels for its convenience and superior animal care. Not only does it provide engaging activities for doggie guests to stave off boredom, but it also undergoes routine inspections by the Department of Agriculture. A staff of approximately 40 means your pet is in good hands and will receive lots of love and affection. 

Boulder Falls Pet Resort

Outfitted with fully air-conditioned, indoor suites, Fido is sure to enjoy Boulder Falls Pet Resort during the summer heat. This elegant resort provides pet guests bedding, food, up to three off-leash play times, and a post-play evaluation. Stop by for a tour, meet the experienced staff, and watch animal interactions to see if Boulder Falls is a good fit for your pet. 

Boulder pet owners needn’t travel far for access to high-quality amenities. Mobile grooming facilities, top-rated dog parks, and safe boarding facilities stand at the ready to welcome you and your pet.
