If your dog is well socialized and loves off leash play with the freedom to frolic in wide-open spaces this is the ultimate care for your furry family member! Our one of a kind program is an absolutely wonderful alternative to traditional kenneling facilities.
Moon Dog Lodge provides fabulous social opportunities and exercise. Truly sweetest gift of dog care that you can give. Our service is kept small so that only the best care, exercise, and social outlets can be given along with understanding loving energy that should be experienced by your precious pup! Each dog is honored as an individual with sensitivity given to his or her needs. We offer a structured consistent program with Moon Dog guardian ‘leaders’ they can trust giving the hounds security with a familiar schedule and solid guidance that they can rely on and understand. Exercise is an important focus out at the ranch and we embrace the great outdoors to the maximum. After all, we are a “ranch” Yeeehaw!
Extreme temperatures are of course respected and our program is modified to best care take our guest dogs when Mother Nature throws certain temperature challenges our way. Both our services provide 2 full hours of socialized free form (off leash) exercise in the morning and late afternoon utilizing the full 20-acre fenced in property. Dogs are guided at all times and managed with only compassionate methods. This social outside exercise program offers enjoyment of interesting terrain and a wonderful body, mind, and spirit release. At the end of the day Moon Dog Lodge adds up to very pleased pups!
CUSTOMIZED CARE for elders or physically challenged dogs (some restrictions apply) can be set up and are always thoughtfully arranged to provide as much joy and release as possible without compromising their comfort level. For many dogs, still being part of the pack in one shape or form even if they are not as mobile as they use to be can be a huge lift to their spirits.
DOWNTIME is as equally as important. It is not always true that a tired dog is a happy dog, especially in a multiple dog environment. All creatures must have space to calm themselves, relax, sleep…reboot. We dedicate an hour at the lodge to this downtime mid day every day. Moon Dog honors this break in the day as an essential part of a dog’s well-being and in return this important space allows well-adjusted dogs for our ranch program and when they return home.
FREEDOM TO MOVE inside and outside is always made available in our backyard areas closest to the Lodge. Larger outside areas on the property are accessed only during specific times. When at the Lodge we are at the pups beckon-call for moving about, whether that is inside the lodge or outside the lodge in the back yard area to sunbath or go potty.

LODGING – Gift your dog family-style love and care while you’re away
Moon Dog’s alternative lodging service is the ultimate care for social dogs giving the utmost exercise, love, and attention that you just can not find in any other dog care service or standard facility. Our service has limited space as we keep our guest numbers small so we can provide the proper doses of caring energy. Late afternoon early eve we slowly transition into settling in for the evening after happy hours of frolicking. Moon Dog Lodge is set up to accommodate your pups own bedding and crate (If this is a sanctuary for your dog.) These items from home offer your dog a comfort zone. It is of the most importance for dogs to have their family pack aromas (beds, blankets) close by when they when lodging away from home. These home aromas truly sooth dogs when they may be feeling uneasy or missing their family. We also provide a variety of dog beds and blankets that are clean and snuggly. Welcoming comfy spaces are important for pups to lay their heads down for a good night sleep so they can enjoy the next day’s adventures. Lights in the lodge go out at 10:00 pm after our last potty break. Happy Zzzzz’s are essential to wellness of dogs in general but especially when it comes to your dog being cared for by a dog care service. Dogs need quite a bit more sleep and rest then people do and when they are in a new environment this can easily get disrupted as they acclimate to new sounds, smells, etc. Moon Dog understands this very basic factor and gives the utmost care in providing the best possible spaces and atmosphere to nurture this very important part of over all wellness. We want our pack to rise and shine the next morning (6:00 am) and greet their B-fast and day feeling well rested and enthusiastic for the dog day ahead.
Moon Dog Lodge’s educated attentive care, safety protocols, and additional nurturing components sets us far apart from other pet care providers. We simply have found a very special niche that defines our professional service and unique program as an extraordinary dog care service that our Moon Dog families find extremely valuable. We are honored to care take these fabulous furry family members!
