Bowen Island Dog Ranch – Celebrating 12 Years of Happy Dogs!

Karen Then and Now

Welcome to the Bowen Island Dog Ranch, Greater Vancouver’s professional dog boarding destination in the magical BC rain forest. At the Dog Ranch, we are devoted to giving dogs everything they need to be happy, healthy and safe while you’re away. Here, a dog can be a dog—free to explore the Dog Ranch forest and trails leash-free, play with other dogs and, above all, enjoy the constant care and affection of our amazing team of skilled dog carers.

Shuttle Your Dog to the Ranch
We offer a North Shore and Downtown Vancouver City Shuttle Service, the easiest, most convenient way to bring your dog to and from Bowen Island. The Shuttle runs every weekday morning, from Monday to Friday, and you can reserve when you book your dog into the Ranch.

Additional Services for Dogs
The Bowen Island Dog Ranch has it all: Our popular Board & Train program along with private and group training, expert full-service Grooming, and a Daycare for Bowen Island and visiting dogs. (We can even bring your dog to the USSC Marina if you boat over to Bowen!)

Daily Tours Welcome
Next time you are on Bowen visiting our Island’s amazing beaches, trails, restaurants and shops, we encourage you to visit the Dog Ranch and tour our facility with your family and pups. (We’re on the Island TransLink bus route.) See for yourself where your dog will be staying—and playing—while in our care.

I have endeavored over the many years to make sure the Dog Ranch provides the best possible care; so that your dog has the most awesome vacation ever, and you’re free to do the same.
