Cottonwood Ranch and Kennel is located near beautiful Crawford, Colorado, about a two-hour drive southwest of Aspen, Colorado and about a two-hour drive north of Telluride, Colorado. The climate at Cottonwood Ranch and Kennel is mild all year, which allows for outdoor training and exercise time for all the dogs visiting the Ranch. The Ranch is an expansive 322 acres with an expanse of lawns and fields around the kennels for wide open exercise and training time. There are 4 ponds on the property that are used during the warmer summer months for cooler exercise for dogs that love to swim. Ted Hoff, Colorado's dog trainer and owner of Cottonwood Ranch and Kennel, has worked the kennels for more than 20 years. He grew up with Labrador Retrievers and enjoyed training his first Labrador Retriever at the early age of 10. Ted has a wealth of professional dog obedience training and an innate understanding of dogs that is clearly demonstrated in his training methods.
