San Diego’s premier Dog Boarding Experience

The Ranch is located on 3 beautiful acres in Valley Center. We are a family owned and operated business and are licensed, insured and regularly inspected by animal control. At the ranch, your dog is not on your typical 9am to 5pm schedule like other businesses. The dogs are let out in the morning by 6am and do not get closed in for the night until 9pm. You can also rest assured that your dog will not be left alone at night, with our house located just steps from the kennel.

Throughout the day, your dog will be let out onto a grass field which is completely fenced and on over an acre. The dogs are always supervised and get a lot of human contact while they are here. We offer group or individual playtime, depending on your dog. Because exercise is a key component to a happy dog, there is no charge for any of the play times your dog will receive while at the ranch.

When the dogs are not running and playing on the field, they are resting in our spacious individual 32 dog run kennel. The inside of the kennel is climate controlled, making it comfortable for your dog all year round. The outside of the kennel is completely covered to ensure your dogs safety. With the design of our kennel, we are able to accommodate any and all types of dogs, including dogs with aggression, separation anxiety, and fence jumping problems.

We are what we like to call an all inclusive dog boarding kennel. We offer pick up and delivery to all of San Diego County and into Temecula area for only $10. Along with this, your dog will also receive a complimentary bath, blow dry and brush on exit. We use only high quality grooming products to ensure your dog comes home looking as good as they feel after their stay!

Our goal at the ranch is that your dog will get plenty of exercise, attention and care so they will return relaxed and happy and you can rest assure they are in good hands! K9 Rustic Ranch does not like to disrupt the routine of our dogs, therefore we ask that you call to schedule an appointment to tour our facility. Your dog may accompany you on your visit, but please provide a copy of their vaccine records when coming.
