A majority of our clients prefer to pay by credit card for ease-of-use, and we charge your credit card at the end of your dogs stay after they go home. If you prefer to pay us with anything other than a credit card, please let us know before your dog goes home.

Within your secure personal portal online where you filled in the application form and can make a reservation, there is an option to provide us with your credit card information in your “owner” page. We do require a credit card on file if your dog is staying with us. Thank you.

*Special Requirements Surcharge*

At the Dog Ranch, we pride ourselves in going the extra mile to ensure each dog receives the care it needs for a happy, healthy, and safe stay. We understand some dogs have special needs and require considerably more TLC. If your dog requires specialized handling for proper care, or out of the ordinary medical considerations, a daily or one-time surcharge may be added at the discretion of Bowen Island Dog Ranch.

Dates We're Full

We get very busy and often full for boarding during the times when the kids are out of school. This includes Long Weekends, Summer, Xmas, and March Break. Please book ahead to avoid disappointment!

Vaccinations

If your dog is coming in for boarding or day camp, please ensure their vaccinations are up-to-date. We have a 5-7 day window from when you have them done before your dog can socialize here. We appreciate your diligence on making sure they are valid.
