Longmont loves dogs! Maybe it's the relaxed, welcoming attitude of this wonderfully down to earth, friendly Front Range town where so many of us are discovering our new Home Sweet Home, but the feeling of welcome is very real and definitely includes the four-footed friends in the family. All you have to do is take a walk or spin around town and you'll see what I mean. Folks out walking their dog, cycling with their dog or even skateboarding with their furry buddy. If you drive over to gorgeous Union Reservoir, you'll spot some lucky canines having the time of their lives frolicking in the cool, clear water at their very own dog beach.
From the awesome dog beach at Union Reservoir--which features a designated dog training area where dogs are allowed to roam off leash and swim while you enjoy breathtaking Rocky Mountain vistas--to the four off leash dog parks in town, this is a great place for dogs. Add to that Boulder County's myriad recreational trails and other dog friendly spots a short drive away, and you can see why Longmont truly is a wonderland of outdoor opportunities for dogs and their parents.
Longmont also boasts a number of highly regarded veterinarians as well as an array of grooming, pet sitting and dog walking services to provide the best possible care for your furry friend. And for all your everyday doggie needs, there are great local options in addition to chains like PetSmart. Four Paws & Co features a large array of quality food, treats and toys and other accessories and has a self-service dog wash with great tub set-ups. They also have a dog training facility on site.
When next visiting Longmont for your home search, you'll find plenty of dog friendly places to stay, from the local Holiday Inn Express to several local Airbnb hosts who welcome pets. (Ask me for a personal recommendation!) Longmont also boasts over seven dog friendly restaurants, including Wibby Brewing and the award winning local favorite Pumphouse Brewery on Main Street, where you can enjoy a local brew and juicy burger on the patio with your four-footed pal.
So next time you visit Longmont, bring your canine member of the family so you can see for yourself just how happily your dog will adjust to calling Longmont their new home!
