About Us

Under the Sun Training and Doggie Daycare was established by Colton and Heather in 2011. 

This husband and wife team combined their love and abundant knowledge of care, training, and dog behaviors to create an “in home” daycare atmosphere and a dynamic training system in the Colorado Springs Community. 

Colton and Heather and their Pup-friendly staff create a “home away from home” by providing quality care, exercise, and training to your furry family!



Coming SUMMER 2021!

We are very excited to announce we have broken ground on our new 21,000 square foot facility!

Our dream of building a premier dog training facility, daycare, and events center has now become a reality!

Our NEW 21,000 square foot building will include a 12,000 square foot turfed training/events arena, Indoor/Outdoor Daycare Play Yards, Training/Flex rooms, and a Mezzanine looking over the arena!

We are so excited to be EXPANDING the Under the Sun dynamic training philosophies and years of experience into new classes, competition, and dog training opportunities for this community!

Same love, care, and knowledge…in a bigger space!

Current Under the Sun Dog Training and Daycare facilities will remain open
during construction of new building.
