Denver's Most Common Dog Owner Personality Traits

Out of the five most common pet owner personality traits people in Denver ranked #1 for being the most active. Positioned near the Rocky Mountains, it should come as no surprise that dog owners in Denver are more likely to hike alongside their dog (74%) than owners in other cities, and they’re also most likely to play tug-of-war (87%).

Denver ranked last among the 10 cities surveyed for obsession with their dogs due to their overall unlikeliness to let their dog sleep in bed with them and to miss their dog as soon as they leave the house. No worries! Denver pups are spoiled with walks, runs, and being in the outdoors.
