Bowen Island Dog Ranch – Celebrating 13 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 British Columbia 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. Our team of dog lovers always go the extra mile caring for each dog, including tip-to-tail health checks on each boarding dog daily, to ensure optimum health. 

We offer a City Group Shuttle to 3 locations on the North Shore and Vancouver Monday to Fridays, making it easier and cheaper than driving to Bowen Island yourself. Or a VIP (Very Important Pup!) shuttle daily, if your schedule doesn’t line up with the City Group Shuttle times and days.

Join many of our happy clients who have taken advantage of our popular Board and Train program, Grooming, and Day Care for Bowen Island and visiting dogs.

We encourage your family and pup to come by for a tour so you can experience the dog camp destination we’ve proudly created here at the Dog Ranch.
