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 is OPEN!

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!

Hi I'm Katie! I’m originally from Milwaukee, WI but moved to Colorado in 2018. I have always had a love for animals, volunteering at humane societies and rescues and now truly enjoy coming to work every day because it’s more than just a job to me! I am blessed with something I adore!

Hi I'm Sabrina! I've been working with dogs for about 8 years and let's just say I'M OBSESSED! Born and raised on a farm surrounded by the city of Denver, I've always been around all sorts of animals! I feel like I understand dogs better than most people, and couldn't be happier about hanging out with your little cuties all day!
