Rover Retreat is a premium Dog Boarding resort located Golden, CO convenient to Arvada and Lakewood as well as serving the entire Jefferson County and surrounding area. Area dog owners prefer bringing their pets to Rover Retreat for overnight dog boarding because we are not your typical dog kennel. Our experienced pet-loving staff will treat your pets like family while giving them the care and attention they deserve. Your dog can expect to spend the day with other dogs of the same temperament, closely supervised by our caring staff. Likes, dislikes, best friends, or that special place to scratch, our staff works hard to get to know your dog’s personality. We want your best friend’s entire stay with us to be enjoyable, whatever that entails!
