Dena is a spectacular sitter, and we highly recommend. She took care of our dogs for a ten day stay and they couldn't have been happier. Daily walks, warm, welcoming home, homemade treats. I think Duke would have stayed forever. So much better than being kenneled with dozens of other dogs, concrete floors, synthetic turf yards. We can't say enough great about Dena and Jim. Thanks!!!

OUTSTANDING

It’s pretty sweet Dena lives out in the mountains and has a large yard. That’s why I chose her. I wanted my dog to go on a vacation while I was gone and Dena made sure that’s exactly what it was. Dena did an amazing job. She sent me tons of photos to ensure that she was in great care. Dena defiantly went above and beyond from boiling chicken to add ...

This is the first time we have used a pet sitter and was not sure of what to expect. Dena exceeded our expectations! She is a very caring person. Katy fell in love with Dena, her husband and their dogs instantly. Dena made sure that we were comfortable by sending photos of Katy and her friends playing. Katy was one lucky pup! She was even allowed to sleep with them. On a scale of 1 ...

A Pup Paradise Canyon Retreat

Your pups deserve a vacation too! A fenced yard in the setting of the beautiful Colorado foothills complete with fresh air and space to run and explore.

My name is Dena and I adore (all) animals. I am my best and happiest self when I am in the company of furry companions. I have lovingly raised and cared for dogs, cats, bunnies, snakes, birds and more for the majority of my existence. I have also ...

What Dena would like to know about your dog

My home is located just outside Golden Gate Canyon State Park, so if your pups enjoy being outdoors and trail hikes, they will love staying at our cabin in the country!

I would prefer to know your fur-babe's (approximate) daily schedule so I may accommodate as closely as possible. Like people, animals have individual preferences and issues. The more information you can provide the better. Your pups happiness and safety is my #1 priority!

LARGER DOGS (50+ lbs) are required to have (some) basic training* to stay at Pup Paradise Canyon Retreat.
(* follows basic commands, does not jump up on humans and/or obeys commands to stop jumping up on humans, and experience/training walking on a leash)
