Boarding

If your pup loves visiting The Ranch for daycare, he or she will get more of a good thing when boarding with us! We are proud to offer customized boarding that is tailored to YOUR pup’s needs and comfort level.

Your pooch will get to run freely as part of a specified, preapproved pack (always with human supervision). Campers can have some poolside fun during warm weather, then catch some rays while playing in the giant sandbox. They can follow that up with a wood chip pile romp or a relaxing stroll along the trails that run throughout The Ranch. At the end of the day, they are ready to hit the sack and dream of the new adventures they get to have the next day. There is a little somethin’ for every dog at A to Z Dog Ranch!

Approval Required

All Business is by Appointment Only.

All dogs that visit the Ranch for daycare or boarding must go through our tour and evaluation process. Click here to schedule a tour and evaluation.  Tours/evaluations are $20 and take approximately 30 minutes.

Dog Day Care

Dogs play outside as a pack and are always supervised by at least one human in the yard. The dogs play in specfied playgroups which allows for periodic breaks during the day. There are doggie pools to play in when it is hot and mountainous wood chip piles to climb year round. The Ranch has a total of 5 acres of play area providing your pups with lots of space to run and explore!  Each play area is 2.5 acres with lots of shade and trails. Each of our play areas has improved, secure fencing to keep your pup safe.

During major holidays/peak boarding times, daycare may be interrupted when we are full with boarders. Prescheduled daycare clients are notified via email when restrictions are applied.

Dog Park Day

A Dog Park Day is a scheduled visit that gives you and your pup an opportunity to become acquainted with the Dog Ranch, meet the Ranch Hands, and see first-hand why the Dog Ranch is such a special place.

Each pre-scheduled Dog Park Day is 30 minutes long and allows your dog(s) to associate YOU with the Dog Ranch since you will be present for their play time. They get to go home with you when their play time has concluded. All dogs must go through our tour & evaluation process before they can visit for a Dog Park Day. For regular clients, a Dog Park Day gives you a safe place to bring your dog for some fun where you know everyone has been screened and is up to date on their vaccinations.
