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!



Our New Facility celebrating 1 year!

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 includes 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!

Hello, I'm Brieanne! Ever since I was young, I have always had a dog beside me! They have supported me throughout my life and since they have been there for me I want to continue to be there for them. So I am happy to be able to care for your dogs and make them feel at home at UTS!

Hi, my name is Aylin. This is my dog Nano, he's an emotional support dog, I got him when I was in a hard moment of my life and thanks to him and all the support I could get out of that dark place. I've been around dogs since I was little, and I know they are a very important part of our family and life in general. It is my pleasure to take care of your loved little ones.

Hi, I'm Colby! I moved to Colorado Springs from Florida in the summer of 2021 and shortly after found a family at UTS!

I truly enjoy nothing more than getting to spend my days with you furry friends!

Hi my name is Dana. I’m a Colorado native & have a 3 year old son. I fell in love with dogs and dog training 9 years ago when I got my first dog, Sasha. She opened my eyes to the dog world. Since then I have volunteered at HSPPR and rescues. I am excited to come to work to give your dog a fun and safe place to socialize with other dogs!

Hello fellow furry friend lovers, my name is Britney and I just adore spending my days loving on your family members!! For as long as I could remember, I have always had a dog by my side to join me on whatever adventure I had embarked upon. They teach us so much more than we could ever imagine and I truly can’t think of anything better to fill our time here. Dogs truly are a girls best friend.

Hi, I’m Jenny! I’m a Colorado native and ever since I was little, I wanted to be around dogs and work with them. I was raised around hunting Labrador Retrievers and they began my love for animals. As a college student, working at UTS gives me a great outlet to be around pups as I don’t have my own yet. I can’t wait to meet your pet family members and play all day!!!
