Also, the trail around Harper Lake in Louisville is off limits to dogs.

Thanks for those suggestions. Not sure why I didn't think to look at the Boulder County website.

We are working on getting him over his fear, including having a dog sit in the room with him during behavior therapy. It seems to be getting better, but still a work in progress.

Hall and Heil Ranches outside Lyons forbid dogs. Both beautiful areas with good hiking.

Evergreen dog park will likely close over health, safety and hundreds of pounds of dog poop – The Denver Post
Doesn't surprise me at all. Too many irresponsible dog owners.

I love dogs, have had several over the years, but even I am starting to despise dog owners. Too many off leash, on too long of a leash, won't pick up after their dog etc.......

Every week I pick dog poop up off my lawn. My neighbor put a gate in the back of her fence just for the sole reason to take her dog out of her own yard to let her dog poop in the common space and she doesn't clean it up. No matter what people say to these dog owners, they don't care at all.

I simply don't get it, how hard is it to use a proper leash, obey the rules and clean up after your dog????

If dog owners can't do that, we need to start revoking people's privilege to own a Dog.

I had another interesting episode last week - this time a dog owner in my apartment complex with two bags of garbage in his hand to throw out and his dog following him off leash. I give him a look that was like WTF and he barely paid any attention to me. His dog is one of the more aggressive ones in my complex.

The more I think about it, the more I think this is a problem with transplants being first time dog owners living in a new city and not caring.

If he's just walking to the dumpster and the dog is staying right next to him, I think that's far less egregious than going on a trail without a leash......unless the dog is actually aggressive and chasing people.

Similarly, I think that's a lot different than taking your dog on a trail off leash and allowing them to roam around aggressively chasing people down. If the dog is being obedient or keeping to itself, I guess I don't understand the problem.

Dogs can be unpredictable, particularly in a new environment and/or when they get startled. Dogs should always be under the owner's control or in a controlled environment.

This. I remember living in Hoboken, NJ in my early 20s and that city had some nice dog parks with metal fencing perimeters. Owners could hang out in there, or watch from outside as the dogs went wild. Fun to watch. But it's kind of bad news when your apartment complex in Denver is kind of like that.

Quite a lot of Boulder County trails allow off-leash dogs. Of course they are supposed to be under voice control, and the owner is required to get a tag for each dog and take a class. Point being, however, is that Boulder's not a good place to hike if one doesn't like to encounter dogs not on a leash. Head up to Estes Park, where there's exceedingly few trails in the area that allow dogs, leashed or not.
