Fort Collins Ranks as One of the Top 10 Towns for Dogs

Kelsey Nistel/TSM
Kelsey Nistel/TSM has done some research in regards to sniffing out the best cities in America for dogs to live in, and Fort Collins has earned a spot in the top ten. 

The real estate website based their rankings on the following categories: Percentage of households that own a dog, number of dog parks/trails/beaches per capita, amount of dog-friendly restaurants and bars, number of pet stores/trainers/groomers/boarding services/veterinarians, and finally the number of dog walkers per capita and average hourly rate. Life is anything but ruff for dogs living in here Fort Collins, as the town is filled with spacious dog parks, plenty of hiking trails, an assortment of pet care services, as well as many breweries and bars where dogs are permitted to hang out with their humans right on the patio. Pooches living here are happy as can be, and so are their loving owners too!

Just about 70 percent of households in our city currently has a canine living in it. The other top ten cities for dog lovers are listed below:

  1. Charleston, South Carolina
  2. Temecula, California
  3. Las Vegas, Nevada
  4. Scottsdale, Arizona
  5. San Diego, California
  6. Austin, Texas
  7. Tampa, Florida
  8. Fort Collins, Colorado
