The Yappiest Dog Park In Denver

Dog parks have become an integral part of being a pooch parent. Up until a short time ago there was the coolest dog park in the country in Denver, Colorado. It was called the Bark Bar and combined the hospitality of a pub/coffee shop and the open space for dogs to run and network. Unfortunately the city decided that the popular place did not live up to the city codes and shut them down, much to the dismay of many dogs and their people.
