The Ranch basics…

Ballypines Dog Ranch is a quaint, family-run ranch, just waiting to love your dog. Our barn is located on 20+ acres of fields that offer tons of space for your dog to run, play and explore.

Just like home…

We have different cabins for each dog and their 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’s size, energy level, and emotional needs. If you have a multiple dog family, we assume you will want them to share a cabin as it will feel more like home. (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 their individual needs during your initial appointment. Any concerns can be further addressed at this time.

Visit BPDR in advance…

Here at Ballypines Dog Ranch we understand how anxiety provoking it can be to leave your pet in an unfamiliar surrounding. We REQUIRE that you and your dog come for an initial tour of the ranch and at this time we will perform a temperament testing assessment of your dog. Ballypines is an extremly social dog boarding facility. We only accept dogs that are extremely friendly with other dogs and people. During this appointment we will show you where your dog will be lodging, as well as cover any possible questions or concerns related to your dogs’ stay at the ranch. This visit is meant to prepare you and your dog for a wonderful experience at Ballypines!

Every dog is unique…

Whether it is a quiet walk in the woods, a game of fetch, or simply hanging around with people in the yard or barn–we do our best to re-create the family traditions and habits that make a house a comfortable, happy home. Let us know the “little things” that your dog enjoys, and we will do our best to accommodate!
