FAQ & COVID

Here is a list of the basic questions we get asked, and the short answers.


Effective immediately, we ask for compliance with the following new procedures:

1) Please make specific time appointments for dropping off and picking up your dogs. We will schedule times at 15 minute intervals. You may call upon your arrival or ring the bell. We won’t invite you in, but you may hand one of us the leash at the door. For picking up your dog, we will bring the dog to the door and pass the leash to you. If there is another customer already at the curb or the door, please wait until their departure to get out of your car.

2) In compliance with the “Safer at Home” order,
you may not enter our building if you are experiencing symptoms of respiratory illness, fever or cough.

3) If you do require entry, we will have wipes, soap, or hand sanitizer readily available for your use.

4) We will be wiping down leashes and collars and harnesses with a pet safe disinfectant.

5) For now, please refrain from bring additional items other than dog food in plastic bags. We will continue to wash and sanitize blankets and beds that we have and will work hard to keep you dogs comfy even without their “own stuff.”

Thanks for your compassion, cooperation, and understanding!

When are you open?

7 to 6.30 M-F

Weekends 8-5 but we have flexibility if you tell us ahead of time.

What shots does my dog need to stay at the Ranch?

DHPP- (Distemper, Hepatitis, Parainfluenza, Parvovirus) sometimes with another abbreviation.

Rabies-

Bordetella- (kennel cough)

Dogs also have to be on a flea prevention program, with a product like Frontline, Advantage, Fibroguard, or a routine pill from your vet.

What is the free evaluation?

You leave your dog with us for an hour or so to let your dog get used to the Ranch,without the dog parent. This gives us a chance to observe and to see how the dog interacts with people and other dogs. We make sure the dog can enjoy being with other dogs in a common area. Most of the dogs enjoy seeing other dogs and get along quickly. Sometimes it takes a while to see how the dog will adjust to a new social setting.

How much does it cost?

Full Day Care is $29

1/2 Day Care is $17 (up to 5 hours)

Overnight is $45, an extra dog from the same family is just an additional $20.

We do have discount rates for multiple visit packages or extended stays.

There are no "extras" charges for treats, walks or other routine care. Only for something really special like giving medicine, grooming, training or emergencies.

Talk to us. We can make deals for different circumstances. Compare competitive rates and what care your dog receives.

What do you do to give back to the local community?

We support theFoothil Unity Center Pet Food Bank to support local people who may need some help. We are a collection spot for pet food donations.

We also have volunteered to be an emergency shelter for the City of Monrovia Fire Department emergency preparedness list.

We contribute both time and donations to other worthy local organizations, particularly dog related groups, such as United Hope 4 Animals.

Are you ecologically sensitive?

We are dedicated to providing the best care we can. This includes using biodegradable, recycled, and repurposed products whenever possible. We try to recycle the material we use at the Ranch.

Can we get the dog groomed?

If we know ahead of time we can often arrange for grooming services while the dog is here. We have a mobile grooming service that will come to the Ranch during your stay.

What do you do for feeding?

Typically we recommend that you bring your dog's normal food. But if you don't bring food we will give a very high quality dry dog food. We use food that is as allergy free as possible, and that is made in the USA.
