Here are answers to our frequently asked questions:

Can you drop my dog off in my yard?2022-04-19T05:53:25-06:00

We prefer not to leave dogs in yards unless there is an open doggie door into the house or obvious shelter and water. No dogs will be left in yards during inclement weather.

Do you accept aggressive dogs at your dog boarding facility?2022-04-19T05:53:57-06:00

Will my dog catch kennel cough?2022-04-19T05:53:03-06:00

While the spread of kennel cough can be minimized by proper cleaning, isolating obviously sick dogs, and properly ventilating the facility, remember that no amount of supervision, sanitation, or personalized care is guaranteed to be 100% effective against the virus. Doggie Dude Ranch requires all dogs boarding to have vaccinations up to date, and we follow strict disinfecting cleaning processes.  Please book a tour to visit the ranch and see first-hand how we minimize Kennel Cough.
