Men's Health magazine published a fabulous article for anyone looking to relocate to a dog friendlier city. I was very excited to see one of my favorite places I want to move someday top the list. Colorado Springs, Co. was number one and Denver, Co. made number six.
Denver's ranking may surprise a lot of people since Denver has a bad rap as far as breed specific legislation. It has made me think twice about moving there. A few years ago Colorado legislators passed a law making it impossible for cities to ban breeds. The Denver City Council had to revoke its ban as well as a few other cities. The ASPCA has a lot of great information on this if you are interested in learning more about Breed Specific legislation and alternative solutions for dealing with irresponsible dog owners.
Here is a link to the Men's Health article on the Best Cities for Dogs. You'll learn more about how each city is ranked and some interactive maps if you want to see how your city ranked on the individual criteria .
