Most Popular Dogs in Colorado

Like much of the US, and indeed the whole world, the most popular breeds in Colorado are Labradors, German Shepherds, and Golden Retrievers. If you would like to find out more about these popular Colorado dogs, Puppy Hero has a wealth of information on them. Our goal is to help you choose the perfect pet for your family.

Now, coming back to Colorado. Could there be a better place for a dog to spend its life? The outdoors is right at your doorstep and there’s plenty to explore. But you need to choose the breed carefully for Colorado if you want a happy dog and happy you.

If you’re looking for the best dog breeds to take hiking and backpacking in Colorado, experts recommend the Alaskan Malamute and Siberian Husky, obvious choices given the mountainous terrain and cold weather in Colorado. Other breeds that do well in Colorado include Australian Shepherd dogs, Bernese Mountain Dogs, Border Collies, Labrador Retrievers, and Rhodesian Ridgebacks. You can even get your four-legged companion a backpack of his own because some of these breeds can comfortably carry a fair amount of weight.

On the other hand, short snouted dogs like Boxers and Boston Terriers may not have the endurance to keep up with you on multi-day hiking trips and higher elevation hikes in Colorado’s mountains. At the same time, you also have to take into account summer weather when some breeds with longer coats may be prone to overheating.

If you’ve already zeroed in on the breed you want, Puppy Hero has a database of responsible breeders in Colorado from where you can source a healthy, beautiful purebred puppy. The best breeders in Colorado follow the highest ethical standards in raising their pups, so you can be sure you’re taking home a happy, well-adjusted, socialized fella or gal who is up-to-date on his vaccinations and deworming.
