Working Dogs in the Pikes Peak Region

Working alongside their hooman counterparts, these pups are not ruffing around when it comes to their day jobs.

Blaze and Fly at The Broadmoor’s Golf CourseThese border collie brothers are on pawtrol on The Broadmoor’s three championship golf courses. These four-year-old goofballs herd wildlife off the courses while running the risk of being sprayed by skunks, making deer encounters and chasing off wild turkeys. 

Blue at The Broadmoor’s Fly-Fishing CampHost of The Broadmoor’s Lake George, CO campsite, Blue is the optimal choice to have by your side as you enjoy Colorado’s great outdoors while fly fishing.  

Cassie at The BroadmoorEvery dog has their day, and each day is Cassie’s for the taking. Starting at 6 a.m., the border collie/lab mix fulfills her destiny herding birds off the main grounds of the resort back into The Broadmoor’s Cheyenne Lake. 

Chester the Weather DogFull of dognity and grace, Chester the Weather Dog gives an incompawable Colorado Springs weather update.

Bark Ranger Pete at the Royal Gorge Bridge & ParkPete is the outdoor adventure park’s best dog-gone ambassador. Originally trained to be a guide dog, Ranger Pete’s new occupation comes with an official badge, title and lots of love while greeting guests. Pete even uses his previous guide dog skills to soothe anxious visitors while crossing the bridge and helps swear in junior rangers. 

Reba at The Ranch at Emerald Valley This PR pup and greeter is unforgettable. Reba the lab and golden retriever mix greets guests and offers hiking companionship. She loves to fish and can even catch fish gently in her mouth without harm. When she’s off duty you may find this good pupper cuddling with her stuffed animals. 

Waffle at Frayla BoutiqueThis King Charles Cavalier cutie is the perfect shopping companion as you browse through Frayla Boutique’s inspiring socially-responsible collection. Be sure to give her a good belly rub and some ear scratchies. 

Zoey at Cloud Camp It’s a dog’s life, indeed. Zoey the Labrador retriever is Cloud Camp’s furriest resident who greets guests and is always up for a photo-op. Starting her job at 5:00 a.m. raising the flag, Zoey enjoys hiking with guests and eating the leftover gourmet food accommodating her grain-free diet.
