Your best friend will feel right at home at Doggy Dude Ranch!

Leaving your pet overnight or for an extended stay can be stressful. At Doggy Dude Ranch, our staff gives every guest plenty of love and attention – eliminating anxiety for  your pet and for you! We find the perfect environment  for each guest, so your pet will have fun and want to come back and visit us again and again.

Every guest at Doggy Dude Ranch is somebody’s baby!

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

Each guest is given individual, loving attention along with group or solo play activities.  Feeding, watering and  meds¹ are also included.

We accept a limited number of doggy guests so we can better serve them. Reservations are required.

During the day, dogs are walked and played with alone or in social groups depending on their individual needs. For our smaller, less adventurous, guests we have doggy pools or a loving lap. We provide plenty of shade for hot Utah days and our large fenced area is perfect for running, playing, and exploring!

To the east of 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 with a 6 dog daily maximum).

At night, guests enjoy a restful stay in our clean and comfortable kennels, or our in-house “doggy-den” guest room. Doggy Dude Ranch owners live on-site, so you can rest assured that your friend is looked after, even after business hours.

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