Because we are located less than 1-1/2 hours (including the 40 minute ferry ride) from downtown Vancouver, we encourage you to drop off your dog yourself... that way you can take a look around the ranch and we get a chance to meet you! We're only a 5 minute drive from the Langdale ferry terminal, so if you're planning a vacation on the Sunshine Coast, or just an overnight stay at a local B&B, you can drop your dog off and pick him/her up on the way home. 

BOARDING: (All prices include meals )


Existing Clients of Happy Tails Ranch: Every friend you recommend who books a stay with us earns you one free night of boarding.
Long Term Stays: discount negotiable
Multiple Dog Families: discount negotiable

As you may be aware, there is presently a great deal of controversy related to the risks associated with vaccinating your dog. Happy Tails Ranch will be accepting dogs that have not been vaccinated, as long as they have been titer tested within the past 12 months. Titer testing can be done at Adored Beast Veterinary Clinic. Proof of vaccinations or titer test will be required. Happy Tails Ranch will not accept dogs that have not been spayed or neutered.

As we do not yet have credit card capabilities, all prescreening, transportation, and boarding fees are payable in advance by cash or cheque. Please make cheques payable to Happy Tails Ranch Ltd.

Taxes not included
