Classic Boarding

The essential Dog Ranch boarding adventure for your dog.

Classic Boarding is a super-fun, safe and comfortable dog experience. We provide expert care and endless affection for your dog, with lots of outdoor play exploring our magical rainforest trails.

If dogs could speak, what kind of boarding situation would they ask for? Probably one with lots of joyful outdoor romping, dog friends galore to hang out with, and great people to love and care for them. That is classic boarding at the Dog Ranch!

In Metro Vancouver, that place is the Bowen Island Dog Ranch, providers of an amazing vacation for you dog—a boarding destination approved by literally thousands of dogs since 2007.

While here, your dog will enjoy daily opportunities for supervised play with other dogs, roaming the Dog Ranch’s intriguing forest and trails. Health checks are conducted every day for each dog, “tip to tail”, and come with oodles of loving attention. Boarding rooms are scrupulously clean, warm, well ventilated and very comfortable.

We are the un-kennel, a canine-centric community set in nature where leashes are unnecessary, and “dog” is spoken fluently by our expert carers and trainers, every day of the year. Welcome!
