    Vail Dog Parks -Dog Friendly Parks & Trails

    Welcome to ThinkVail – we hope you find this article about Vail Dog Parks helpful. We all love our fur babies and want the best for them, and in Vail, Colorado we know that life is better when your dogs (and your kids for that matter) are tired out from a fun day of exercising. Dogs that hike, walk, play Frisbee and run around are less likely to: chew your shoes, eat the couch pillows, go through the trash or do any of the other hundreds of destructive things that dogs do when they are bored and want your attention. The solution? Take them to the dog park!
