Dog Boarding

Classic & Enriched Dog Boarding

The essential Dog Ranch boarding adventure for your dog.

If dogs could speak, what kind of boarding stay away from home 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.

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 over the past 13 years.

While here, dogs enjoy supervised play with other dogs throughout the day and evening, roaming the Dog Ranch’s intriguing forest and trails all while getting oodles of loving attention from our team. Tip-to-tail health checks are conducted every day for each dog, and boarding rooms are scrupulously clean, warm, well ventilated and very comfortable.

We are excited to introduce our NEW boarding experience Enriched Boarding, which take your dog’s boarding experience to the next level; adding special activities for more stimulation, from exciting brain games to nature walks to extra games or ball time–all to assure an even happier, calmer dog.

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!
