7 Reasons We Love Dogs

7 Reasons We Love Dogs

Dogs are part of our families and part of our lives. They go with us just about everywhere- to the park, running errands, visiting family. Dogs are constant companions.

Dogs love the great outdoors as much as most Coloradoans. We take our dogs hiking, camping, and exploring! I can’t think of a better buddy for outdoor fun.

03. Dogs are trainable

Good luck training your cat- cats are far more likely to train people. Dogs, on the other hand, can be trained to do amazing things!
