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

Karen Then and Now

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

We offer a North Shore and Downtown Vancouver City Shuttle Service to get your dogs to and from Bowen Island, Monday – Friday mornings. Additional Services include a Board & Train program, full-service Grooming, Private and Group Training, and a Daycare for Bowen Island dogs and visitors to Bowen. We will even bring your dog down to the marina if you bring your boat over!

Daily tours welcome! We encourage you to come over to Bowen Island and tour the Dog Ranch with your family and pups to see where your dog will be staying while in our care. There’s lots of great hiking trails of various levels, restaurants and retail shops, to make it a day trip you won’t forget.

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.
