Calendar, Rates and Reservations
Yes, we ARE open but are heavily booked through beginning of 2021 with many people wanting to getaway after COVID-19 strict stay-at-home. We are blocking at least 24-hours in between visits for airing out and sanitizing so fewer dates available. Scroll down to see our Availability Calendar which is always kept up-to-date.
You may reserve directly with the Dog & Pony Ranch using our online Quote Calculator then complete brief reservation request form and finalize with PayPal payment, OR book via a listing site if you prefer. Booking directly with us on DogPony.com as almost all of our guests do will ALWAYS be the lowest cost with the most options.
What you get... there is nothing quite like our unique dog-friendly ranch so people often ask us what it is. The guest house is completely private like a vacation rental home (you prepare your own meals, separate entrance, no shared interior spaces). It's a hosted visit since we (Cyndi and Troy) live on our ranch with our animals so will be here during your visit, though we do try to ensure as much privacy or interaction as you want. Regardless of Quarters vs Standard guest house configuration, you are our ONLY GUESTS for your selected dates!
Feedback from guests has been very positive for our hosted farm-stay experience since living onsite means we can offer daily barn animal feeding/petting/learning interactions (included), plus optional llama walks or horse grooming/riding lessons. More info on our Ranch Livestock page and in many reviews. There is no obligation to visit the barn -- some guests just want to enjoy the private large property with their dog.
Dogs are always welcome at our ranch and we are well setup for guest dogs including separately fenced yards. Our Lab, Cody, gets along very well with dogs of all sizes and is helpful for introducing guest dogs to the barn animals. However, we can accomodate dogs who don't play well with others and will coordinate with you so your dogs get max time on the 60 acres.
