My dogs love staying with Kathy! Just like being home only better--more room to sniff, more pals to play with. Great place!

The only place I trust or put my name behind!! The Dog Ranch is clean, safe and full of love. As a Dog Trainer I always worry about where my clients kennel. I have seen horrible behavior issues after a long kennel stay BUT NOT HERE! They get to play in a large fenced yard. With minimal kenneling and small groups your dog will feel like its at Summer Camp and not a kennel. Your Dog will want you to go on vacation more often!

Our puppy loves staying with Kathy and company! Kathy runs a clean, safe and comforting experience for our puppy. We are so lucky to have found her. Worth the drive from Durango!

I have been using Kathy at The Dog Ranch from the very start of her business. Kathy was my professional dog trainer for our gal "Meg Ryan", and when I heard she was doing dog boarding on her property, I was ecstatic. I love the way that Kathy cares for our beloved pet, with no cages, plenty of doggie playground equipment, and lots of pups to play with. She posts daily videos on Facebook so we can see what Meg is up to. Meg loves it there. A great way to get socialization experience with Kathy's dogs, her cat Cedar, and even her Cockatoo, Frosty! The Dog Ranch is the only place I will leave my dog when we travel.

This is such a great dog place! Rufus loves Kathy and I love seeing updates of his stay on Facebook. He pulls my arm out to get inside and see his furry friends. So glad to have found this service.

We have been going to The Dog Ranch and are absolutely in love with this place for our 7 month old puppy! Mia has such a fun time every time she goes. Kathy does such an amazing job she treats Mia like family!

Kathy is great! She has a a perfect location for the dogs. We drop ours off for a few days and he's like, "Oh yeah, you guys" when we come back because he is having so much fun there. Zero stress on him, none for us.

We feel so fortunate to have such a wonderful place to bring Harley. He is always excited to see Kathy and has such a fun time. Thank you Kathy for loving our Harley like your own!

As a Dog Trainer and a former owner of a boarding kennel, this is the best place for you dog when you are away. Dogs are less stressed and it becomes your vacation for your dog too. Kathy is knowledgeable with kind caring compassion for those dogs entrusted in her care. I highly recommend The Dog Ranch!

Kathy’s facility is the best facility I have ever seen! It’s not just the equipment and stuff but the care and love she shows for each of her "guests"!

Kathy has an amazing set up for dogs. She was great to set things up with, and provided a perfect experience for our dog while we were away. We'll be back!

Kathy does a fabulous job caring for our dog, Meg  in her home while we're away. No cages, lots of room to run and play, and Kathy's two dogs, Peach and Red, are wonderful playmates for our gal. We receive regular updates from Kathy on what's new with the dogs, with videos of them playing, doing some practice "sit stays" for treats, and just cuddling up on the couch. Would recommend her dog boarding and training to anyone. Meg and I both say, "thanks, Kathy"!

Loved our first training and private lesson! Very upbeat and positive! Well educated and experienced. Looking forward to many "happy tails" together!

Our dogs had a wonderful stay with Kathy. Her facility is amazing and must be like going to camp for doggies. She sent lots of pictures showing our dogs having all sorts of fun. Highly recommended.

I first met Kathy H. When she co taught a manners class at Durango Dog College. My 8 month terrier/husky mix was a little anxious and fearful. Kathy won her trust and she started coming out of her shell. Kathy soon moved closer to my home and sponsored some doggie play dates for small dogs. Once again Kathy showed her skill in working with fearful dogs. This summer she kept our fur baby for two nights. She had never stayed away from us overnight away from home but she knew Kathy and was comfortable and happy. She even snuggled with her at bedtime. I highly recommend Kathy. She is caring and calm which reassures any animals around her.

Kathy is the only person I trust to take care of my dogs. I know they are safe and happy the entire time they are with her. They get plenty of exercise and have so much fun they don't even realize I'm gone!

Kathy is one of the only people I would trust to leave my dogs with. Her background as a dog trainer makes for an excellent babysitter.  She knows when to stop play if it’s getting too rough and she will keep certain manners intact while you’re gone. She has a fully fenced in yard and is a loving caring person who even allows your dog to sleep in the bed with her. Your dogs might not want to come home from Kathy‘s camp.

My dog had so much fun with Kathy and her pups, I was afraid she wouldn't want to come back! Frequent pictures let me know that Ivy was having her own fabulous vacation while we were having ours. Because Kathy is a professional dog trainer, I knew that all of the hard work we had done with manners training wouldn't be lost by someone who didn't know better. And I also know Kathy took loving care of her, which I am so grateful for!
