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 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!

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!

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!

Hello fellow furry friend lovers, my name is Britney and I just adore spending my days loving on your family members!!

Hi, my name is Matt. My first dog, Lexie, transformed me into the animal lover I am today. She taught me what absolute friendship means. I've volunteered at Mill Dog Rescue and a few other animal rescues in Colorado. Animals have become an important part of who I am. It is my privilege to play with and watch over your friends at UTS.
