Ernie Boudreaux's Doggie Dude Ranch is a freeplay dog day care and boarding facility for LONG or SHORT term dog vacations and DAY CARE.
Dogs that have a chance to socialize in a casual environment without owners almost always will get along with other dogs. We facilitate this process. We are very experienced with dogs in a free play setting that encourages positive social interactions. Our staff are the "alphas" and no aggressive behavior is tolerated. We can firmly show most dogs what behaviors are not ok. Dogs have so much FUN WITH OUR ROUTINE!
WE LOVE YOUR DOG. Our goal is to provide them a relaxed and comfortable atmosphere while you are away. Included in our rates are all the healthy food and extras your dog will need.
Our BUNKHOUSE offers a place for rest in a private area for each dog, and climate controlled, for some cool or warm relaxing down time. In bad weather we situate our dogs comfortably in the bunkhouse, where they do not hear storms or traffic. We do ask that your dog arrive with a collar and leash for easy handling. We have soft blankets that we put on soft vinyl covered wood floors. You can leave your dog's bed home but if you want a special blanket for bed time it's ok. With low stress fun in the country, lots of activity and fresh air your dog will be vacationing better than you!
The hub of activity for the dogs at the Doggie Dude Ranch happen at the Bunkhouse where they relax and sleep. The play space at the Ranch resides on acre fully fenced with our Bunkhouse in between the two one-half acre play areas. Our free play environment allows dogs an at-home feel with no stress. No cars, just deer playing in the adjacent fields and a chance to go and explore. All dogs get the opportunity for fun engaging walks twice a day for 25-30 mins each time they go out.
The size and temperament of dogs determines which Bunkhouse they reside during their stay at the Ranch. So every dog has full freedom to romp and play or hang out in the Ranch yards where they can cool off in the shade or play in our pools.
We give the dogs a private, comfy bunk area, as home base for relaxing, eating and sleeping. Music plays continually throughout the day and night to create a safe space for all dogs, especially those scared of storms.
Bedding and Food:
You may bring your dog’s food, or not; a bed (plush fluffy beds discouraged.) Our staff gives each dog their own blanket when they arrive. In addition they are also fed a high-quality kibble daily. If your dog has a special diet we are always happy to feed them the food you bring at no additional charge or you may choose having the Ranch feed a grain-free kibble daily for an additional fee.
