at the Bowen Island Dog Ranch

A very heartfelt welcome to all dog owners new to the Bowen Island Dog Ranch, and our returning clients and pups who have been a part of the Dog Ranch family over the last 14 years. We hope you are healthy and staying pawsitive during this difficult time.

With travel being so affected for the foreseeable future we have re-imagined how the Bowen Island Dog Ranch could continue to serve our community and provide top-notch services and care for dogs.

Our Services:

With the growing popularity of our Board & Train service over the past few years, it is now our flagship service for the Bowen Island Dog Ranch and we couldn’t be more excited! Our force-free custom programs combine the best in boarding with individualized immersive training, overseen and taught by our Head Trainer Carey Bolduc and our dedicated training team—all for a happier, calmer, better behaved dog.

We are always open for Classic Boarding, and please book ahead for the holiday season as we have limited space. If you feel it would benefit your pup to get some dog socialization with us for a few days as well, please reach out.

We are also excited to offer a **NEW** Enriched Boarding service that is customized for your dog to reduce stress and improve well-being by providing physical and mental stimulation through pawsitive play, brain games and mental stimulation each day.

We have a part time Grooming service available to help keep all the pups clipped and coiffed, but we cannot offer Day Care at this time.

Our City Group Shuttle runs to and from West Vancouver, North Vancouver and Downtown in the West End, with a reduced schedule of Mondays and Thursdays during Covid. We can also pick up or drop off your pup at our Bowen Island Ferry Terminal, or you’re always welcome to take our 20 minute picturesque ferry ride over to Bowen Island from West Vancouver and come directly to the Ranch. Transportation options can be found here.

Tours are always welcome if you are healthy and we all adhere to the provinces guidelines of mask wearing and social distancing. Our COVID policies and procedures can be found here.

Whether it’s “welcome back!” or “welcome” we thank you for your support. It will always be our commitment to care for your four-legged family member and keep them happy, healthy and safe with us at the Bowen Island Dog Ranch.
