The Ranch basics…

dog kennel

Ballypines Dog Ranch is a quaint, family-run ranch, just waiting to love your dog. Our barn is located on 20+ acres of fields and wooded trails.

Just like home…

Dog Boarding Kennel

We have different cabins for each dog and individual needs.  If your dog prefers to be alone while resting, he/she will enjoy his/her own space-this space will vary depending on your dog and size, energy level, and emotional needs.  If you have multiple dogs in your family, we assume you will want them to share a cabin as it will feel more like home to them this way.  (If separate rooms are needed for dogs within the same household, please notify us at the time of reservation.)  We are constantly monitoring your dog to ensure he/she is happy, safe and comfortable at all times.  Some dogs have separation anxiety and do much better with a companion.  Please, we encourage you to  discuss your dog and individual needs during your initial appointment and any concerns can be further addressed at this time.

Visit BPDR in advance…

Smiles galore!!

Here at Ballypines we understand how anxiety-provoking it can be to leave your pet in unfamiliar surroundings.  We encourage you (and your dog) to tour the ranch prior to your reservation.  Once you have confirmed your reservation, we offer a complimentary 1 hour visit.  This is designed to acclimate your dog to Ballypines prior to his/her camping experience. We want to ensure that your dog is as comfortable as possible and prepared for their stay at Ballypines.

Every dog is unique…
