About Adventure Dog Ranch:Marysville's Premier, Cage-Free Dog Boarding, Daycare and Training Facility
About The Ranch:
Adventure Dog Ranch was founded in 2007 by Steve and Kerri Pinkston as a cage-free Alternative to traditional Kennels.
It’s a free-range boarding, daycare and training facility for dogs located minutes from I-5 in Marysville, WA. (North of Everett, WA)
Your canine companion gets to play all day in a supervised pack environment. Our original play yard was 10,400 Sq. Ft. We have just completed an additional play yard which has added 10,800 sq. feet. With the gate to the adjoining yard open this gives us a total of 21,200 sq ft. This allows plenty of romping space for even the most active canines.
Steve, (our human pack leader,) has worked with Animals his entire life. His father was an Amateur Dog Trainer, Competing against amateurs’ and pro’s alike in Field Trials all across the U.S!
Steve has worked as boarding manager for a major NW Animal Hospital and as a Dog Wrangler and Trainer at several high-end boarding facilities in the Seattle Area.
Steve is an accomplished Dog Trainer, using positive, fun and effective training Techniques. Further more, dogs love to work with him and often look at him like he’s the neatest thing since crunchy peanut butter.
Kerri’s story is far too colorful to go into in depth here, but suffice it to say that she’s always willing to discuss guitars and songwriting in depth.
She is also Comptia A+ certified and an Microsoft Certified Professional 3 or 4 times over, barely missing her MCSE by a smidge, only because she couldn’t get a test date in time. This makes her our webmaster and all other things techie.
The Resident Adventure dogs, as well as our canine guests are our family and we treat them with love and respect.
Bring your Pets to Adventure Dog Ranch, they’re guaranteed to have a howlin’ good time!

More About the Ranch
We first opened our Marysville, WA facility in the fall of 2007.
Adventure Dog Ranch is one of the pioneers of Free-Range and Cage-Free style dog boarding. Prior to our opening in 2007 there were only 2 or 3 facilities in the greater Seattle area that offered free-range dog boarding, and none of these facilities were located in Marysville. Things have sure changed for the better for our furry friends. We wanted to offer options more suited to the high energy dog.
The whole idea behind Adventure Dog Ranch was to offer a safe, secure place for well socialized dogs to play, exercise and be with their own kind. Under the watchful eyes of our Staff members, dogs get to be dogs. We do our best to encourage proper pack behavior and keep things happy and respectful. After an hour of romping, some dogs get tuckered out. There are plenty of places that an old dog can catch a well deserved nap.
Can My Dog Be an Adventure Dog? Of Course it Can!
As with all good things, there are some rules:
All dogs must first pass the Adventure Dog Ranch evaluation. This Evaluation is done on-site at our facility, by appointment only, typically on Saturday afternoons.
During this meet and greet, you and your pet will get to tour the facility before your pets 1st boarding or daycare visit. This really helps insecure dogs become familiar with their surroundings, before you leave them with us.
There are also some forms to fill out, available Here.
Dogs must have proof of a recent fecal exam. (Within 90 days of their first daycare or boarding visit,) and be certified free of parasites and bacterial infections. This is to prevent any contagiens from being spread to other members of the pack.
Last but not least, we’ll need records from your veterinarian affirming that your pet(s) are current with the following shots: Rabies, DHPP & Bordetella. (Recent Titers are also accepted.)
