Daycare at Doggy Dude Ranch is like giving your friend a day at camp!

Doggy Dude Ranch has over 30,000 square feet of fenced-in play areas – and a loving and caring staff your friend will look forward to seeing again and again. It is a place where many dogs, cats, horses and even camels have enjoyed the sun and fun of Zion. We provide daycare services for local dogs in our community as well as many out-of-town travelers headed to Zion National Park & beyond.

Our Doggy Dudes are cared for according to their size, age and temperament.

Our doggy guests are given individual loving attention and play, whether in a group or by themselves. Feeding, watering and meds¹ are included in the daily rate. Because we provide interactive play groups – not just supervised play areas – we accept a limited number of dogs so we can better serve each guest. Reservations are strongly recommended.

To the east of the Doggy Dude Ranch is the Virgin River. Many of our guests are walked along its banks and enjoy the sandy beaches. Some of the dogs enjoy wading in the river. This is provided by special request (additional fee) with a 6 dog daily maximum.

Dogs are walked and played with alone or in social groups depending on their needs. For our smaller or less adventurous guests we have doggy pools or a loving lap. We care for all our guests in a safe, caring environment.

Unfortunately pets are not allowed on the Zion National Park shuttles or trails, so the Doggy Dude Ranch is the perfect alternative for your furry family member!

TIP: for summertime play – drop off your pet as early as possible.
