Dogs of the British Isles

Welcome, dog-lovers!  The Colorado Scottish Festival welcomes many people with English, Scottish, Irish and Welsh breeds to join us in Snowmass Village.  And if your family’s furry, four-legged friend is not a breed of the British Isles, come anyway!  The Festival is dog-friendly!

Meet other dog-lovers, watch as dogs of the British Isles parade at the noon-day ceremonies both Saturday and Sunday, and meet dogs from rescue shelters. 

Best of all, bring your pet to the Traditional Celtic Kirkin (churching) of the Tartans at 9:00 Sunday morning. 

We’ll be having the only Blessing of the Dogs ceremony at a festival in Colorado!

Snowmass Village Dog Information

In the mountains, dogs left inside a vehicle can easily overheat.  The sun can be intense and heat up the inside of a car in a short period.  Animal Services officers have had to break into cars to pull out dogs that are severely heat distressed.  Please consider bringing the following to protect your pet:

·         SUNSHADE for your windshield

·         BUCKET of WATER that will not SPILL, but provide water for hours


·         Leave NAME AND CELL # on your car dash in case of emergency

Snowmass Village has a leash law, a barking ordinance and a litter ordinance.  Contact Snowmass Village Animal Services with any questions or concerns.
