Dog Events in Colorado

When you want to really spoil your dog, or just meet other dog owners in Colorado who are as crazy about their pets as you, there’s no better place to bring Fido than a dog event. Attend any of the dog shows, agility competitions, costume parades, festivals or fundraisers in Colorado on our Dog Events Calendar and you’ll meet hundreds, maybe even thousands, of dog lovers. And since 70% of the events listed benefit humane societies, attending one is a great way to help homeless pets too.

Photos with Santa PAWS The Magnolia Hotel Denver in partnership with Freedom Service Dogs invites you to bring your pets, kids, friends and loved ones to Photos With “Santa Paws” in an effort to raise money and awareness for the organization this holiday season. There will be a festive holiday backdrop, live music, holiday treats, and of course, Santa himself! Pets and their people are encouraged to wear ugly Christmas sweaters, Santa hats, or other holiday flare for their free photos. As a leading pet-friendly hotel chain, The Magnolia Hotel Denver is thrilled to support this organization and welcome pets of all types to the property. A suggested donation of $20 will help provide custom-trained service dogs—completely free of charge—to the many veterans, children and other people with disabilities still on their waiting list. All donations will be matched. Photos will be provided for all attendees after the event via an online gallery setup by the local Denver photographer Amanda Engel.
