We Speak Dog

at the Bowen Island Dog Ranch


June 2020


🐹🐾 As businesses begin to open up in BC, we wanted to let you know what’s happening here at the Dog Ranch.

We’re open for Board and Train this summer on a case-by-case basis. Board and Train means your dog is in our care and training daily with our trainers. If you’ve got a new puppy that needs some training, or your dog needs some training to improve their life, (and yours!), please reach out if you’d like to start the conversation to set up a training program with our Head Trainer Carey Bolduc. Please note this is a very popular program and we have limited space this summer, so we’ll do our best to accommodate you however we may not be able to until the fall.

Head Trainer Carey Bolduc: dogtraining@bowendogranch.com          You can find our Board and Train page here.

We are not yet taking reservations for Classic Boarding (boarding without training), and likely won’t open for Classic Boarding until the fall. We will keep you posted. 

Our day care is permanently closed and we’re working on hiring a new groomer.

We’re excited to share with you that we’re using this time to upgrade our buildings and services so we can continue to provide the highest standard of dog boarding and training for Greater Vancouver’s pups.

It will always be our commitment to keep taking great care of your four legged family member, and keep them happy, healthy and safe when they stay with us at the Ranch.   🐶🐾



The Bowen Island Dog Ranch is Greater Vancouver’s professional dog boarding and training destination in the magical Bowen Island, British Columbia forest.

At the Dog Ranch we’re devoted to giving dogs everything they need to be happy, healthy and safe while you’re away. Where a dog can be a dog—free to explore the Dog Ranch forest and trails leash-free while playing with other dogs, and receiving the constant care, affection and training enrichment from our skilled dog carers. Our team of dog lovers always go the extra mile caring for each dog, including daily tip-to-tail health checks to ensure optimum health.

We offer a City Group Shuttle to 3 locations on the North Shore and Vancouver, or drop your pup off at the Ranch yourself and enjoy the beautiful 20 minute ferry ride over from Horseshoe Bay, West Vancouver.

We encourage you and your pup to come by for a tour (in the fall), so you can experience the dog camp destination we’ve proudly created here at the Dog Ranch. Call us at (604) 947-6965 or email us at info@bowendogranch.com
