Pet Friendly Travel

Take care of your pets.  Be aware that vehicles get very hot, especially at this altitude.  Consideration of the heat and dehydration potential is crucial.  Pets need to acclimate to the elevation as well!

Check out our Hotels and Motels Page or Camping and RV Park Page for pet friendly options.

Pets are welcome at the Colorado Welcome Center at Alamosa.  Treats are usually available from our ever-friendly volunteers and there is plenty of room for both you and your pet to take a walk and stretch your legs. 

For a longer excursion, maybe a picnic lunch and a nice walk, check out the Alamosa Ranch trails and picnic area. 

If you are going to ride one of our scenic railroads, or don't want to keep your pet closed up for the day, call the Dog Days Inn, a great place to leave your pet for the day or overnight.  719-589-3988.

If you are taking your pet to the Great Sand Dunes, be aware that the surface temperature of the sand can reach as high as 150 degrees in the summer.  Paws are tender, so take your pet for a walk early in the morning or in the evening.
