Welcome to the Ranch!
Join The Ranch In 3 Easy Steps
It’s easy for you and your furry companions to become part of the Good Dog Pet Ranch family.
Let’s get acquainted! An Orientation Visit provides us with valuable insight about your dog or cat and how best to care for them. It also gives you and your pet the opportunity to become familiar with us – our facility and our people. This will help your dog or cat see Good Dog Pet Ranch as a fun, friendly and safe environment which can ease their anxiety and minimize their stress while being away from home. This visit is complimentary and includes a tour of our facility. We recommend you schedule your orientation visit a week or two in advance of your desired lodging date.

Make your plans as far in advance as possible. With summer right around the corner and all the upcoming holidays, you’ll want to be sure your dog or cat gets a room at the ranch!
You want your dog and cat to be as comfortable as possible when they’re away from home, and we do too. We’ll do our best to make sure every item you bring is returned in the same condition. Please identify each item with your pet’s first name and the initial of their last name with a permanent marker. We kindly ask that you limit the items brought from home to the following:
- Collar and leash: Dogs and cats must wear a collar. Every dog must be on a leash when entering and leaving our facility.
- Bedding – We encourage you to bring your pet’s bed from home. We have clean and comfortable bedding available should you forget.
Food: We recommend your pet remains on the food they eat at home to avoid any digestive issues which could result from a change in diet. Please measure and package your pet’s food in Ziploc bags, one bag for each meal. If your pet eats twice a day (as most do), please prepare two bags for each day. We are able to refrigerate food including canned and raw. You might include extra food should your pet’s stay be extended for some reason. We serve premium dry food
- so if you prefer (or forget to bring your pet’s food from home), we’ll feed your pet our house food for a minimal charge.
- Supplements and Treats: please pre-package your pet’s treats and tell us the amount and frequency to give them. Do the same for any supplements your pet receives. You can include the supplements in your pet’s food bags (if practical) and provide us with specific instructions.
- Medication(s) (topical or oral): Please bring your pet’s medication(s) in the original bottle or package and provide any specific written instructions for administering it. This will help us provide accurate information to your veterinarian should the need arise. Ensure you bring an adequate supply of your pet’s medication(s) or have them refilled before your pet’s stay. We do not charge for administering medication(s).
- Comfort Items or Toys – Your pet may have a favorite blanket or toys that you want to bring along. These items will be kept in your pet’s suite during their stay. Many people bring a T-shirt previously worn by a family member as the scent can be comforting for a dog who is anxious or lodging for the first time.
- Bowls – We furnish clean and sanitized stainless steel bowls for your pet’s food and water.
- Rawhide chews, greenies, bones or other chews – We do not allow these items as they pose a choking hazard and may cause health problems.
- Our normal business hours are Monday – Saturday from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. and Sunday from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.
- Lodging Check-in: You may bring in your dog or cat for their first night of lodging at any time during normal business hours. We charge by the night, not by the day. The earlier you bring in your dog or cat, the more time they have to adjust and get settled before bedtime.
- Lodging Check-out: 1:00 p.m. You will incur a late fee if your pet is checked out after 1:00 p.m.
- Let us know as soon as possible if you are unable to pick-up your pet by closing time, 7:00 p.m., on the scheduled day of departure. We’ll gladly keep your pet overnight. An additional night of lodging will be added to your reservation.
We give our special needs pets – whether senior citizens, physically, visually or hearing impaired, frail or some other issue – an extra dose of tender-loving-care and service. Let us know any other information during your orientation visit as well as when you check-in your pet. The following is a sample of our service accommodations:
- Special diets or food preparation.
- Multiple medications and supplements (topical or oral).
- Additional comfort items.
- Extra elimination (potty) breaks, exercise periods, cuddle time and more.
We welcome all pet parents, family members, friends and neighbors to come meet our team and tour our facility. Our normal business hours are Monday – Saturday from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. and on Sunday from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. No appointment is needed. We do ask that you avoid coming out between noon and 2:00 p.m. if possible as that’s when most of our guests are taking a nap. We look forward to meeting you!
