Denver & Boulder Office Dog Jack

Meet Denver & Boulder’s Office Security & Quality Control Dog Officer, Jack!

I’m in charge of: Office Security & Quality Control Officer. Responsibilities include hourly perimeter checks in the office, checking out all smells, auditing treat supply, training sitters on head and butt scratching techniques, and sniffing down visitors.

My furry family: I live with a bunch of girls who drive me crazy! One of my sisters is an Australian Cattle dog mix who’s always stealing my bed and another sister is a fat orange kitty who never wants to play or share food.

Super power: If you could have one super power what would it be? The ability to leap tall buildings (I am a Great Pyrenees after all…).

Best Thing Ever: Snow!! I love everything about the snow-it holds a ton of good smells, it’s delicious and refreshing, it is the best to roll around in, and I blend into it so well!

Hidden Talent: I can’t wait for my solo backpacking trip this summer to the south of France! I’ll start in Pau and make my way to Cauterets in 7 days with hikes exploring exquisite lakes, shepherds’ huts, and rugged glacier-carved scenery. And I’m totally excited for all of the cheese too!!

Life Philosophy: I believe in the power of long, thoughtful walks, the breeze in your fur, and other simple pleasures like rolling in the grass. Life should be full of treats, snuggles, and belly rubs!

Flowers and Jewelry Ain’t Gonna Cut It: How to Spend Valentine’s Day with your Pet

Happy Valentine’s Day, Pet Parents!

Let’s be honest. Your furry sweetheart is expecting a pretty grand gesture of love this Valentine’s Day, and who are you to disappoint? This year, show your fur-baby how much you really care. From staying in to hitting the town, we’ve got you covered on ideas for how to spend your special day!

  • Sweet & Savory: What pup or kitty doesn’t love snacks?! Cookies are almost certainly what puppy dreams are made of. Whip up a tasty treat for your pal..try these festive Red Velvet Pupcakes!
  • Movie Night: Make it a movie marathon! Queue up Must Love Dogs and Lady and the Tramp, pop up a gigantic bowl of popcorn to share, and let the snugglefest commence.
  • Spread the Love: Not able to spend your whole day with your beloved? Ask your B.F.F. (Best Friend’s Friend!) for a Valentine visit! Extra belly rubs are complimentary on February 14..and every other day of the year.

Whichever date you choose, your furry kiddo will be elated to have spent it with you.

Big Hugs,
Your Human & Furry Friends at Out-U-Go!

Denver Boulder Maxfund-No-Kill-Shelter-Donations

Denver & Boulder’s Hands for Paws Donation Drive To Benefit Maxfund No-Kill Shelter!

The Out-U-Go! Hands for Paws donation drive benefiting the Maxfund No-Kill Shelter in Denver was a huge success this year! Once again, our awesome pet parents donated a ton of supplies that the Maxfund really needed.

Last month, we dropped off a truckload of the supplies our pet sitters picked up from your homes (leashes, dog beds, food & treats, paper towels, cleaning supplies, and more) to the Maxfund. They were so grateful to receive your gifts!

THANK U to everyone who helped make it happen!
