Bowen Island Dog Ranch Featured In The Bowen Island Undercurrent

Strict Vaccinations Policy

Dog owners know their fluffy bundles of joy deserve the best. In the world of Vancouver dog boarding, that means trusting the experts at the Bowen Island Dog Ranch to look out for fido, whether its for a day or a week.

Recently, the impressive work of Bowen Island Dog Ranch was featured in the Bowen Island Undercurrent business section. The Bowen Island Undercurrent reports on news, arts and culture from Bowen Island and the city of Vancouver, and the article highlights the “canine care dream team” and the unique dog boarding experience your pooch will get when they stay at the ranch.


As the Undercurrent explains, the Bowen Island Dog Ranch is not your typical doggy daycare, with carefully selected handlers, trainers and groomers on staff, and a specially-designed dog-friendly terrain to keep your fur pup happy and active during their stay. Not only does the ranch have acres of securely-fenced land for the dogs to romp in, but it also provided a warm and cozy indoor space for those much-needed naps.

Karen Munro has been running the dog boarding ranch with her husband Scott since 2006, and over the years has hand-picked a team of passionate dog-lovers, like Dayna Woodman, certified master dog trainer, and Moira Steward, a registered veterinary technician.


“We have it all now,” Karen tells the Undercurrent. “Specialists, staff, beautiful surroundings, wild terrain for our dogs, top notch facilities, and a loving team that all of Vancouver’s dogs and owners need to know about if they don’t already.”

The team at the ranch caters to a range of needs. Whether you’re a busy Vancouver businessperson who needs daily dog-boarding services, or a retiree who is off on a week-long cruise, the ranch, as the Undercurrent highlights, is a great choice for all Vancouver-area dog owners.

“The Dog Ranch is Bowen’s most important amenity in our house, perhaps the one thing we simply could not do without,” says Heather Prittie in a comment on the article. “Our dog, Darwin, who’s been going there since he came to the island as a puppy, is simply mad for it. The Ranch is the only destination that induces our car-phobic fellow to willingly hop aboard. Wonderful to be able to go away for a day or two weeks knowing he is deliriously happy and totally cared-for.”
