The Sniff Shack was created to fill the need for top-notch doggy daycare & boarding in Northwest Denver, where owners Jennifer & Jessica have lived for years. Leaving their beloved canine companions behind when they traveled for business was hard enough, but having to drive them across town for boarding made it even worse. 

When they saw the “For Sale” sign go up on the old furniture store at 5300 W 44th Ave in 2015, Jennifer & Jessica decided it was time to make The Sniff Shack dream a reality. These intrepid dog moms completely renovated the facility with the safety and comfort of dogs in mind, turning it into the upscale hound haven it is today.

The Shack Gives Back

All dogs deserve loving kindness! That’s why The Sniff Shack contributes to several local animal charities, as well as serving as a resource for area foster dogs and their families. 

Some of Mother Earth’s favorite children are canines, and The Sniff Shack knows you should treat your mother well. They’re proud to compost their dog visitors’ poop to reduce the facility’s carbon footprint.
