Love and Lodging for Your Family Dog


  • THE SMITHS is a family-owned, home-based boarding lodge for domestic dogs located in Monument, Colorado. We are a licensed pet animal care facility and have been in operation at our beautiful front range location since 2006.


  • THE SMITHS offers boarding and day care services for active, healthy and well-socialized family dogs.


  • THE SMITHS have developed a distinctive approach to caring for your dog, because we began with the dog in mind. We think you will agree that our setting and our approach is fitted to the family dog like very few places you will ever see.
