by Alan Daniels

Colorado Springs Dog Friendly

The world's most commonly read dog magazine, Dog Fancy, has named Colorado Springs, Colorado, the 2008 winner of DogTown USA. DogTown USA is a national competition in which Dog Fancy readers nominate America's most dog-friendly city. They look at the number of dog friendly open spaces, dog parks, events for dogs and dog owners, vet to dog ratios, abundant pet supply and other services, and municipal laws that support and protect all pets.

"Some cities clearly roll out the red carpet for dogs and their owners," says Susan Chaney, editor of Dog Fancy. "Each year, it's gratifying to read about so many organizations and individuals who work toward making their cities welcoming to dogs. We're very pleased to honor Colorado Springs this year, and congratulate it for avoiding legislation like that adopted by Denver which bans pit-bull-type dogs."
