A day at Bluebonnet Pet Ranch begins at 6:30 am for our guests. We start off with a quick potty break, then breakfast is served. The rest of our day consists of play time in our grassy yards and a little nap here and there, I mean they call it vacation for a reason! Dinner is at 6pm followed by an outside stroll and lights go out by 9pm.
The accommodations at the Pet Ranch include traditional runs with indoor and outdoor space as well as cabins that are completely indoors. All dogs that enjoy the company of others will go outside for play time throughout the entire day and only retire to their rooms for some rest, as well as mealtimes. If your dog does not prefer the company of others, he or she will have outside time with our staff.
The dogs staying with us enjoy a home-like environment and the owners of the Pet Ranch live onsite.
Traditional runs $34/night
Indoor cabins $30/night
Additional family pet in the same space $20/night (dependent on size and temperament of dogs)
Please note that Bluebonnet Pet Ranch requires at least a 48 hour notice for cancellations. Deposits will be required for holiday reservations.
A Play Day is just what it sounds like.....play time with friends! Drop off on your way to work and know that your dog will have a day full of play, exercise and socialization. The staff at the Ranch also keeps good manners in mind. We will be working on polite manners with people and dogs as well as incorporating basic commands throughout the day. All dogs coming for Play Day will be going out with dogs of similar size and energy level. The play groups typically max out at 5-6 dogs and are 100% supervised. When not in a play group all pups rest in their own space or share a space with a best friend. This "break time" allows for dogs to decompress in between romping with friends and keeps everyone safe.
All Play Day dogs must be spayed and neutered (if over 6 months of age) and current on vaccines. Play Day candidates must be good with other dogs and we will set up an initial evaluation to make sure your dog enjoys an open play environment. The initial evaluation is simply a full day of coming to the Ranch to play and get to know us and is free of charge when you schedule your second Play Day at pick up!
