ABOUT PROGRESSIVE SCHOOL FOR DOGS

For over 35 years Progressive School for Dog has been Northern Colorado's premiere destination and trusted authority for the highest-quality dog daycare, boarding, training and educational experiences for both dogs and their owners. PSFD has pioneered a unique progressive approach because they passionately believe that learning fosters overall dog wellness and deepens the bonds between dogs and their owners. Their beautiful ten-acre dog retreat is nestled within a private tree-lined country setting. Their world class indoor training facility is the largest in the state of Colorado.
