Why Us?

For Doggy Daycare in Denver, Why Choose The Big Backyard?

One doggy daycare is just as good as the next, right? WRONG!  

We are protective of your dog

Every dog is screened for temperament through our interview process before being admitted to doggy daycare. We welcome healthy, friendly dogs that are not possessive of territory or toys. We also require that your dog be neutered or spayed after 6 months of age and that we have proof of vaccination for Distemper, Bordatella (kennel cough), and Rabies.

We are Convenient

We are conveniently located off of I-25 and Evans, between downtown Denver and the Tech Center. Our building also sits right next to Evans East Animal Hospital with whom we have a great working relationship.

Facility Size & Design

Our facility is over 8,000 square feet with 3 large indoor playrooms, 3 large outdoor fenced play-yards, jungle gyms to play on & Kiddie pools to keep cool in the summer! To see inside The Big Backyard, click to take a virtual tour.

Expert, Loving Staff

Our staff members are trained professionals dedicated to the care of your dog. Playgroups are kept small and each group is individually supervised so you can be sure your dog is getting plenty of personal attention.


Our doggy guests spend a day full of fun and frolic with their canine and human friends – both outside in our big backyard and inside in our playrooms. During the course of the day, our staff works on manners with your dog to ensure good behavior. We are always extra generous with the hugs and snuggles so it feels just like home. And naturally, we discourage negative behaviors such as obsessive barking and jumping on humans so that daycare is constructive and fun! Just view some of our doggy daycare clients in action!

Of course, hours of play can leave even the most playful pooch pooped out. We provide lunchtime naps with dim lighting and soft music so that each dog will be ready for the afternoon romping! Your dog will go home exhausted and content and you will have the peace of mind that comes with knowing your best friend is truly happy!

Tail Wagin' Reviews


“My name is the Budman and my mom adopted me from the Larimer Humane Society when I was 9 months old. It didn’t take very long for her to realize that not only was I ‘high energy’ but I got easily bored when home alone. Needless to say, there were a few household items that needed to be replaced! While I am happy being crate-trained and realize that I have to stay home on some days, on those days that my mom is too busy at work to come home for lunch or needs to go out-of-town, she brings me to The Big Backyard.

After trying a couple other doggie daycare facilities, I have found my ‘home away from home’. Although I love to play with my other dog friends, I really am quite content just being around my human friends. There are none better than here at The Big Backyard. The staff is so incredibly caring and knowledgeable. They really know how to treat me right.

I cannot recommend the BBY enough…it truly is a safe, comfortable and loving place for me to be! My mom loves it too!!!! Thank you…”!
