I have never heard of a numbers restruction, only a ban restriction on pit bulls, so I think you should be fine.

Good luck on the move to Denver.  I love it here!!!

You may consider Castle Rock (just south but not as far as Co.Springs).  Also if your Darling Husband is working in downtown Denver proper, look at the RTD website and look for places along the lightrail lines.  Lightrail is awesome public transportation, and it gets you to work and home just as fast as driving.  I know lightrail goes to Aurora and Littleton.  You really wouldn’t want to live in the city anyway.  Congested traffic, small houses, no backyards…it’s no place for four boxers.  Good luck!

So did research & as far as I could tell, there is no limit for the number of dogs you can have in Denver (except no pit bulls). You should call the city’s animal control department to check with them. The limit isn’t on the city’s animal regulations info.

DO NOT let your dogs off leash & make sure they’re always up to date on their vaccinations. You’ll get a ticket if your dog is offleash anywhere & if they don’t have their vaccinations/ licensing done.

I checked here & no restriction for number of dogs is listed: http://www.animallaw.info/statutes/stuscooddenver_louisville.htm

A few other sites said there is either a new law that’s in place or a proposed law of 4 total dogs, so if its that, you’d be okay.

I agree about Castle Rock.  It’s not too big and you can be pretty close to the city and still have space for the pups.

We live in Frederick, about 25 miles north of Denver. Castle Rock is close enuff but traffic will SUCKKKKKKKKKKKK!  I drove from CR to Thornton last Friday around 2p and it was stoopid. And thats not the first time! Its always like that..and I have traveled it many a daytime.  It will grow old rather quick.

I cant chime in about the dog limit anywhere, as we have 3 dogs here in Frederick, 2 very large (Rottie and Akita).  I just wanted to chime in on the traffic to and from CR /Denver.

@shelbifox15:  It looks like the limits are by county, not city.  Broomfield, CO is the capital of Broomfield County, and according to their website, you can have 4 adult dogs in each residence.  It looks like Broomfield might be a good fit!

ETA:  I don’t know anything about the community aspect, though.  Hopefully someone else will chime in.

Broomfield is very nice.. we have some friends that live there, and my soon to be hubby works right on the outskirts of Broomfield.. very good choice! If we hadnt already bought our house up in Frederick, we would have been looking there.

Broomfield is nice.  Not scary by any means.  It will be a bit of a drive, but you’ll have a lot of choices as far as housing.  The houses are a little older there (mostly) and the ones built in the 70s and 80s have larger backyards.  They have a mall called Flatiron Crossing that is super nice with lots of shops.  I would try to find a place close to Route 36 which is the major highway to go to Denver.  It’s all very nice in that area.

Also you can drive north to Boulder on the weekends.  They have some amazing hiking up there and it would be great exercise for the dogs.

There is also a dog park on the south end of Boulder that has a lake.  I loved to take my Rottie there, the swimming was really good exercise and the owners always had well behaved dogs.
