“I was nervous to leave our little buddy for the first time, but we received awesome photos of him during the week. He looked like he had a blast. Lincoln came home smelling fresh and clean and his blanket was also washed. We will definitely use this facility again.”

“Recently my two dogs stayed in the care of Square Dog Ranch for 2.5 days. Never having experience with SDR before this I was concerned leaving my dogs for boarding. Upon arrival, there were some nice helpers who assisted with getting the dogs situated and I got to check out where the dogs will be staying. It appeared well structured and clean. Then I met with Cathy to discuss their stay. By the end of my drop-off I was at ease and the following day I was sent picture messages of the dogs and seeing their smiles and enjoying themselves in the care of SDR I knew I had made the right decision. The entire process was positive and they are definitely top of my list if I need boarding services in the future. *this is a copy of same review I left on Google so I could spread the word on this business”

“My two rescue babies Theo and Sadie stayed at SDR for a week. It was the first time boarding them since we adopted them. I was so nervous!! But once I met Cathy, I was put at ease. She loves animals, lives on the property and she put them in same kennel together. Awesome! She also sent pictures to me of my babies while we were gone. That was an excellent bonus! We will certainly be using them again when we go on our 2 week cruise! Thank you for everything Cathy!!”
