Fido and Trigger are welcome guests at Sundance Bear. We will do our best to make them feel at home. We don't allow guest cats because of issues with allergies.
We know having yours with you can enhance your vacation and we are happy to offer this possibility. Please be sure to let us know at time of reservation that your pet is joining you.
Be aware, anytime animals are introduced to a strange situation, things may not go as predicted. You know your pets best and we've never had any problems in 18 years. But our insurance requires a signed liability release form (click Guest Dogs or Horses link below).
With acres to roam, a pond (if your dog likes water) and a few quick rabbits, Sundance Bear is "heaven" for your friends.
Bring your horse(s)! The San Juan Mtns are gorgeous! Ride over creeks and through stands of aspen. Marvel at the views from high passes.
Pets are allowed to be with you in the park with restrictions (similar to all national parks). Click on the details above for their official policy. If you'd like, we can help with arrangements for having Fido "stay home" at Sundance Bear.
Guests wonderfully helped add to one of our Teddy Bears - this now is our version of the native american storyteller.
As of May 2015, all of our pets had passed and we were petless for the first time in 40+ years. Chester and Oreo had a long and exciting life at Sundance Bear and are now a memory with our "street signs".
That couldn't last - for us or our guests. So -- Pepper is our new dog as of August and Sunshine a new kitten as of January 2016. We are told Pepper is an English Sheppard, but the vet says that's not a breed. We don't care - she is sweet and getting used to a new home with lots of space and lots of small things to chase. Since both are young and we're guessing had never encountered the other species, they get along famously. Pepper just has to be careful - she's a lot bigger.
