Stay with Us!
Our boarding services are nontraditional. Think of a doggie dude ranch vacation experience with ATVs, a pool, dog sports, and more! Our facility is located on a working ranch that dogs love. Dogs go home tired and in better physical condition than when they arrived. Additionally, our facility is owned and operated by an extraordinary dog trainer meaning your dog will come home with additional skills and improved behaviors. Dogs are not our hobby, they are our passion and we have over 40+ years of exceptional experience.
Who we are:
We are a vacation for your dog while you're away offering adventures and dog activities and dog sports. We are a Colorado destination like no other that dogs love! We offer a unique boarding stay in a country ranch setting filled with activities and fun for your dog.
We offer customized options to fit your needs and still be affordable. Starting at $25 per dog, per calendar day. We also offer homemade, gourmet dog treats and other various convenient options to add to your dog's stay. *Holiday weekends start at $35 per dog, per calendar day.
Please complete our boarding application to request your dog(s) stay with us. We will respond within 48 business hours to confirm availability and provide you a customized price quote.
What to Bring:
Bring your dog's meals in portioned zip-lock bags for AM/PM feedings. Optional to bring toys, treats, your dog's bed/crate for comfort and homelike feel. (We have all these items but sometimes you want your own comfort items for your dog.)
Our facilities are located on our 45 acre ranch. Dogs spend their days enjoying our property. We take them running (or riding) with our UTV, we run with them on foot, or walk depending on each dog's individual fitness levels. Dogs get to experience swimming in irrigation ditches, pool time play, paddle-boarding, agility, pack runs, and all kinds of playing on our property with their doggie friends in a variety of doggie activities and terrains in activities that are instinctual and beneficial to dogs!
When we're not out playing, dogs rest in their private boarding suites, outdoor kennels, our yard, etc.. Dogs go home tired from the adventures and all the exercise at our property. Dogs that stay with us enjoy an experience that is like a doggie dude ranch vacation. Dogs only spend time in their private suites when they need to rest, otherwise they are out playing nearly all day with only their night time dinner/breakfast in their suite.
What we're not:
Some boarding places are similar in style to a dog shelter that can trigger bad memories for rescued pups. Other boarding kennels have dogs locked in cages or spending all day in a sort of play pen of a lot of dogs. At K9cation dogs experience ranch life and use their instincts and abilities to create memories and positive experiences with lots of play. Some places charge for special petting and snuggling, extra walks, etc. We include play, petting, snuggling, pack runs, and more!
