Adventure Dog Ranch FAQ'S:Marysville's Premier, Cage-Free Dog Boarding, Daycare and Training Facility
How Long Have You Been Doing This?
We opened Adventure Dog Ranch in the Fall of 2007. In the 10 years prior to life at the Ranch, Steve worked at a few other free-range dog boarding facilities and a Vetrinary hospital. Before that he was a proud member of Local 292 Laborer’s Union (Asbestos Abatement and Traffic Control) and before that, a United States Marine.
Kerri worked in Global Network Operations and Information Technology for many years prior to the opening of Adventure Dog Ranch. We opened right as the bottom fell out of the economy and after 3 months in operation, Kerri’s IT job was outsourced overseas. She says that she found both the economy in 2007 and not much money coming in, “highly motivational.” After months of sending out resume’s she decided she would dedicate all her efforts to helping Steve build the business. After all, they had “nothing to lose but everything.” Kerri has also worked as Computer / Network Technician and as a professional musician. You can hear some of her songs as background music to our Youtube videos.

Why Do People Send Their Dogs To Doggy Daycare? The Benefits of Doggie Daycare:
People that work all day realize that their dogs get bored without them home. These same people want to fulfill their dogs and provide them with adequate exercise, socialization and play time. Dogs are a lot like children, to grow into the animals that they’re meant to be, they need the basics, Nutrition, Shelter, Love and Rules. We can provide all of these things for your pet while you’re at work. Imagine how good it feels to know your dog is having a great time while you’re at work. Imagine how great it is to come home to a dog that has already had it’s exercise for the day. Then you can curl up on the couch with a book and your best friend. Your pet knows how much you love them because you’ve provided for all of their needs, even when you couldn’t be there yourself.
Our motto? A tired dog is a happy dog.
