Pet-Friendly Spots in Avon, Colorado

Avon, like many places in Colorado, is a town that welcomes our four-legged friends. In fact, there are several businesses and parks in the area that are well-known for being dog friendly. Whether you’re interested in grabbing lunch or taking a winter hike, consider heading to the following with your pup in tow:

Dusty Boot Roadhouse

The Dusty Boot Roadhouse is located in the Vail Valley and features a handful of pet-friendly tables outside. This steakhouse and saloon is a great place to stop by after spending a day on the slopes or shopping in the village. Among its most famous dishes include short rib enchiladas, chicken piccata, Thai peanut noodles, and filet mignon. Bring your pup along for a quick bite, but be warned: they’ll order everything on the menu. 

Harry Nottingham Park

Harry Nottingham Park is made up of over 48 acres of open space and welcomes dogs (as long as they’re leashed). While it’s a favorite spot for fishing and paddle boarding in summer months, winter offers a chance for hiking, nature watching, exploring, or just hanging — and sniffing — around.  

Ritz-Carlton Bachelor Gulch

The Ritz-Carlton Bachelor Gulch is the perfect place for your pooch to “ruff” it. It has a reputation as being among the most dog-friendly upscale hotels around. It’s rumored to cater to your pet, with options like doggie room service, and allows your dog to venture into several areas on the grounds. There are no size limitations, but guests are limited to two dogs per room and additional fees apply.  

Eagle Vail Trail

The Eagle Vail Trail doubles as the “Beagle Vail Trail” with its dog-welcoming atmosphere. A favorite of locals, this area features well-maintained routes, creeks and crossings, and a pristine forest. It’s accessible in winter, weather permitting, and all trails tend to be rather gentle and easy to transverse. 

Eagle Vail Brewery

Even though the odds are high that your dog is underage, Eagle Vail Brewery allows them just the same. This brewery features handcrafted beers and is the go-to meeting place among those finishing their work days and their black diamond runs. Come enjoy a stout with your hound or sip a pale ale accompanied by a wagging tail. 

Avon is full of places that allow pets, including many not on this list. When in doubt, ask the business directly about its policies. Your dog just might be welcome with open arms and paws.
