Day Boarding

When you’re at work, your dog can be playing and getting the attention he needs (instead of chewing on the living room furniture!). Dogs who come for day care have opportunities to play throughout the day, along with rest times. So drop them off on the way to work and pick them up on the way home—they’ll love it!

Why Day Boarding?

Our fun, friendly hands-on daycare program will:

  • Relieve boredom
  • Remedy destructive behavior
  • Ease separation anxiety
  • Improve socialization
  • Provide valuable exercise
  • Increase self-confidence

And perhaps best of all, after a fun day at the Ranch your dog will be as dog-tired as you are and ready to spend a relaxing evening together!

At the KEP Doggie Dude Ranch, we specialize in hands-on, recreational style day boarding which results in engaging and enjoyable experiences for our guests. The Doggie Dude Ranch feels strongly that social interaction is a fundamental element in making the boarding experience a positive one for the dogs in our care.

Why do we feel social interaction is so important to a beneficial boarding experience?

Our experience has taught us that dogs are social animals, and well-balanced dogs enjoy the companionship of other dogs. Playtimes are offered every day—we permit the desire of your dog to determine how long his/her session will be.

It is possible to schedule up to three sessions per day. 


Plan ahead!

Just as with our lodging service, appointments are required. We want to be ready. For their safety, prior to the time of check-in, we will need to see a copy of each guest’s veterinary vaccination record showing they are up to date on their Rabies, DHLP-P, and Canine Cough (Bordetella). See Our Policies page for full details.
