Coming to the Dude Ranch Pet Resort is something your dog will look forward to, and you will be relaxed and happy about; each and every time! We’re not just a ‘brick building’ or an ‘old warehouse’ for your dog to run around in! We’re a TRUE Pet Resort on over 47 acres with forest, fields, trails, meadows and even lakes! Check out our website for lots of information – about our 15,000 sq feet of FENCED INDIVIDUAL PLAY SPACE that we use daily for playtime activities! Bad weather? No problem! We can move INDOORS with over 5,000 sq feet of fully air-conditioned, rubber floored play space! True LUXURY – Our lodging services include FIRST CLASS and BUSINESS CLASS! No “Tourist Class” for our guests! Our BUSINESS CLASS offerings are our VILLAS; custom built Stainless Steel and 21st Century plastics for safety, CLEANLINESS and comfort. Raised platform beds, TWO fleecy blankets and lots of toys complete the private villa offering. Our FIRST CLASS offerings are our SUITES; unique PRIVATE ROOMS, each with its own theme… complete with human furniture (bed, table, chairs, etc.) nice soft bedding (off the floor, of course!), room service 3 times daily and individual flat-screen TV’s where your pet can watch movies, DVDs or other pictures from home! Our ENTIRE facility is 100% air conditioned. That means COOL COMFORTABLE surrounds during the hot days of the summer… and nice warm nights in the winter! We don’t just ‘cool off the front’ like many other places do… And, we’re ALWAYS here. Yup, 7 days a week, 24 hours a day. No, not with ‘…someone sleeping in at night…’ like others offer, and No, not ‘..we close and leave for the night..’ and NO, not even ‘..someone living here…” We ACTUALLY HAVE LIVE WORKING STAFF, 7x24 who go through and check on all of our guests throughout the night. Absolutely no worries, no concerns… WE ARE HERE! Luxury, Safety and Comfort… A TRUE Resort. Come check us out – You’ll see the difference! Interested in DAYCARE? Our Daycare offering is at the top of the list! All of our Day Care guests MUST first complete an entrance evaluation before being allowed to join into any of our programs. Your dog is evaluated across a scale of 10 in a variety of areas, including dog-dog aggression, dog-toy possessiveness, do-=human relation, food aggression and more. Based on the results of the entrance evaluation, your dog is welcomed into the RIGHT TEMPERAMENT BASED play group! SAFETY AND COMFORT ARE #1 ! Too many dogs in a group? Too rowdy? Rough housing? DANGEROUS?? We provide 100% individual attention with our fully trained staff. Fully accredited staff is what you’ll find here at The Dude Ranch. Each playgroup has dedicated individuals (makes to ensure a high staff- to low-dog ratio) ensuring safe play, good manners and proper play behavior. None of this mixing of big/small/high/low/ energy dogs! To round out your dog’s True Resort experience, check out our GROOMING services! Treat your pet to our experienced groomer’s hands. A bath, brush and manicure can freshen not only your dog – but your spirits too! Looking for that special look? Our groomers KNOW what the differences are between breeds! You won’t find our folks asking WHAT it is… we WILL be asking how do YOU want things done? We’re here for your dog - and for you. Both you and your dog will be proud of how they look! You love your dog – that’s why you’re considering the Dude Ranch Pet Resort. We understand – your dog is not only part of the family, they ARE family. Just a little one in a fur coat! And, we understand, sometimes discipline is so very hard. Well, check out our Dude Ranch Academy training programs. We have classes that start at the early-puppy socialization, go on to puppy kindergarten, Hi-Q Puppy and on into advanced levels. Didn’t start your little one out at puppy time? Well, join in as an adult into our RELIABLE ROVER classes, Basic Pet Obedience and more. How about some of the latest in training in Dog Sports? Rally? Agility? Competition Obedience? Or maybe an AKC Canine Good Citizen’s certification program? We’ve got them all – both at night and in the day time too! A busy dog is a happy dog. Did you know that a well trained dog is not only a better member of the family – but is also a great way to lower your blood pressure??? One less thing to worry about! Don’t forget to check out our Retail Store when you’re here. More than 1,000 different items can be found here in Super Premium Foods (Canidae, Taste of the Wild, Bravo, Primal, Natures Variety, Natural Balance….) Treats (Zukes, Stella & Chewy, Snap Bits, TidNips, Three Dog Bakery….) Collars (leather, nylon, training, walking, hunting), Leads (leather, retractable, multi-dog, nigh-light….) and more.

Our Alaskan Malamute gets excited just at the mention of going. The staff is always friendly. And our dog is happy. The staff is attentive of our wishes using our shampoo. I must say that our dog is still sometimes damp when we pick her up, but she does weigh 125 pounds is ALL fur. I am very satisfied with the service we receive.

The last time I boarded my dogs at my old place, they didn't come home feeling too well. I was not comfortable that they were ok. So I decided to find a new better place. I checked out reviews and then went looking. I stopped in to more than 5 places and my stop at this dude ranch was amazing. They were quick to enable a tour and quick to not only tell my why they were good but also showed a real ...

We had looked at the facility prior to leaving our dogs with them and the place was amazing. There was not the usual *stench* of animal boarding facilities, and the floors and kennels were as close to immaculate as you can have in a kennel. They are generally very open to "guest visits", but occasionally they will not be able to take you around so as to not upset the animals. They are rather pricy...

Hello! Thank you for taking the time to enter a review on Angie's list. Alas, we wish you had contacted us - or at least provided the feedback that you have done above, sooner than over one-year after having visited us! The good news is that we are meticulous in our records, including not only computer files/records, but also audio and video storage. As such, once receiving your post from Angie's ...


We can't say enough good things about the Dude Ranch. We have used them for boarding, daycare, and are planning to take some training classes there. My family and I toured a number of boarding / daycares for pets, and when we saw dogs waiting to go into the Dude Ranch, they were all pulling to go in (whereas some other places, dogs pulled to leave). We have a 7 mo lab mix puppy, and we take her to...

Hi - Thanks so much for taking the time to leave a review for us here on Angie's list! And, thank you for trusting us to care for Lucy during 2015! Lucy, as a young pup (I think she was born in late Feb of this year?) has been playful and inquisitive! As she has grown we've been fortunate to watch her personality develop, and see how well she has done. It is a great credit to you that you have had...
