Yelp Reviews!

“Our pups absolutely LOVE coming here. Their tails start wagging before we even pull up to the place! Kerri and Steve are very knowledgeable and it’s clear they have a passion for dogs. The dogs get to spend most of the day outside (except for a break after mealtime so that they can properly digest their food) and they get to sleep together in a room (our dogs like to snuggle with each other). Steve has also provided training for one of our dogs, which was fantastic. We really saw results. 10/10! We recommend Adventure Dog Ranch to all our friends!”

Top Dog Boarding Facility in SeattleBest Dog Boarders
in  Seattle

2023: once again chose us as one of their Top boarding facilities in Seattle. 

We've lost track of how many years in a row this is, but pretty sure this goes back to 2017 or before.  Thanks Seattle for recognizing our joy in being your dog boarding specialists.

August 2022:

Proud to announce a Repeat win in the Dog Boarding Category for Lux Life Magazine.  I've misplaced the Gif for this, but it's there.  

July 2020:

Lux Life Magazine's Best Free Range Dog Boarding facility in the Pacific NW!

Adventure Dog Ranch Repeats In Lux Life Magazine's Best Of, in Pet Services.  In 2019, we were only considered the best in Snohomish County.  Here's a link to the write up they did about us in 2019, they didn't do a big write up this year.…/pet-products-and-services…/25/…

January 2020, 2019, 2018 etc: has once again chosen us, Adventure Dog Ranch, as one of the top 18 dog boarding facilities in the greater Seattle area.

Considering they started with a pool of 161 boarding facilities, some of them far fancier than us, that's some stiff competition!

Of course we subscribe to the belief that great canine care does not require radiant heated and highly-polished, hard-wood flooring, but rather, lots of exercise, play, fun, leadership, consistant rules, human-canine interaction, attention to body language cues and a lot of love and mutual trust. That last one, trust, has to be mutually earned. That's why we continue to be one of the best facilities at what we do. We may not be so great at remembering human faces, but these dogs will stay in my heart forever. Thanks to the good folks at for recognizing us for the 2nd year in a row.

Here's the link if you'd like to read up.

Another Award we're proud of is the Fido Friendly Best of 2011 Award.

You'll Have to Pick Up a Copy of Fido Friendly Magazine's big 50th Issue to read the whole review, but you can see a couple pictures here:

We don't like to brag, so we'll let them tell you why we're one of the Best Doggy Daycare / Boarding Facilities in the WORLD!

2011 Awards: We've Done it Again!

Below you'll find some images of awards we've won over the years, but we got bored and quit keeping track after winning so many years in a row.
