Bring your dog along to meet us and some of our boarding dogs, who come in all sizes. If you have travel plans, please consider setting up your visit well ahead of time so that we can be sure to schedule a convenient time for you prior to your trip.
An initial phone conversation will allow us to learn about your dog and his or her social history, temperament, and personality. If your dog has boarded at dog boarding services that offer social interaction with other dogs , such as dog daycare / boarding facilities, then that is a good indicator that your dog will do well in our social setting, too.
Our home-style, dog boarding provides unique and highly personalized care that is not offered at traditional Tucson dog boarding kennels and pet boarding services, or Tucson dog daycare facilities. Our boarding dogs enjoy human and canine company, and activities that provide mental and physical stimulation to promote a healthy mind and body for your dog! In the evening, your dog can relax with us and our other boarding dogs, on cozy dog beds, in the comfort of our spacious home!

Some of our pack members!
After breakfast, we begin our day with playtime for the dogs in the agility play ground. Then, we head out for our supervised morning hike, in our four acre fenced, hiking area. Our hikes are approximately 10 to 20 minute intervals, with water breaks in between and some fun in our agility playground. Our agility playground includes barrel tunnels, jumps, and ramp platforms (pictured in our photo galleries). Many dogs take to the agility activities quite naturally, and we use positive reward techniques to encourage all the dogs to participate!
After hiking, we take a break before we begin our daily pool party! In hotter months we spend more time at the pool, and in the cooler months we spend more time playing in the agility yard and hiking. Pool play time always includes a fun ball game! Dogs that like to swim are able to enjoy swimming, and non-swimmers enjoy playing around the pool with the other dogs, as well as the ball game! Our pool area includes a large shaded veranda with multiple ceiling fans, which keeps the dogs comfortable year round, as well as comfortable dog cots.
All of our daily dog activities are well supervised; I enjoy spending my day with the dogs and take photos of all the fun, as time permits!

We conclude our fun day spent with the dogs with a hike, followed by dinner, and then a relaxing evening in our home. We have plenty of clean comfortable dog beds for our dog boarding guests. Photos are emailed as time permits, and daily emails updates available upon request.
Our daily routine provides supervised and structured activities, and promotes the building of important social skills that are beneficial to a dog's mental well being.
We provide our service year round and tailor our activities accordingly. During the summer months, we ensure that all the dogs stay comfortable with plenty of water and shade, and access to our air-conditioned home. We take great pride in providing personalized dog care, so our clients can travel with peace of mind that their dogs are safe, well cared for, and having a fun dog vacation!
Evenings at our Tucson dog boarding ranch are always relaxing after a fun day of dog play!
Our boarding dogs are assessed for social ability with other dogs, as well as people.
To succeed at the Ranch, most dogs will need to have recently done well, at a traditional doggie daycare or dog park, so that they understand appropriate doggie behavior. All Ranch guest must do well, and enjoy being around other dogs of all different sizes, and be non-reactive.
Every dog has his or her own unique personality. Some dogs are more outgoing, and some are more shy in nature. Our homestyle, social environment, ample space, and structured activities, are ideal for dogs, who are well socialized with other dogs and people, to enjoy being part of a balanced and harmonious group. Dogs of all sizes can participate together in our supervised hikes (in our fenced hiking area), agility playground, and swimming pool area. All of our dog activities are well supervised.
All dogs need to be at least 10 months of age, neutered or spayed, entirely house trained, and fully vaccinated. A puppy rate will apply for dogs under 12 months of age. Our weight requirement is 10-80 pounds.
For the health and safety of all our boarding dogs, we require rabies, DA2PP ( distemper, adenovirus-2, para-influenza and parvovirus vaccine), leptospirosis vaccine, and bordetella. We ask that all vet visits and or vaccines occur 10 or more days prior to a Ranch visit.
We want each of our dog boarding clients to bring their dog's own food, so that we can keep each dog on a consistent diet. We feed twice a day - morning and evening. And we always have plenty of treats to share with our boarding dogs during our daily activities! We ask that you bring your dog's good and that no dietary changes occur 10 or more days prior to a Ranch visit.
We can insure that your dog stays on his or her regular schedule of most common medicines or supplements. If you have any concerns in this regard, please contact us. If your dog has any particular food allergy issues, please let us know and we will take any necessary precautions.
We have plenty of dog bowls, comfortable dog beds, and tasty dog treats. So it is not necessary for dog boarding clients to bring these items. We don't use typical dog toys, because our boarding dogs enjoy a fun day of activities, including hikes and agility playground, and our daily afternoon pool play time. Pool time includes ball games, too! All of our daily activities for our boarding dogs are well supervised.
