PET RANCH at Sun Valley Animal Center

The Pet Ranch at Sun Valley Animal Center is an exclusive “cage free” dog boarding experience. An animal Care Specialist is in residence 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The Pet Ranch is a home where 1 -10 boarding guests are allowed to roam freely in the spacious living room and beautiful back yard. Meals are individually served in the separated kitchen area. Your dog will be offered cuddle time and daily brushings. There is a secondary back yard big enough for chuckit! and swimming in the beach front entry pond. Dog Moms and Dads can check in on their "kids" through designated web cam links any time. A report card is emailed daily to the families of our guests.

Pet Ranch Boarding Requirements:

  • Your dog must be either a neutered male or a female not in heat with proof of current vaccinations.
  • If your dog has visited our boarding facility before, he must be comfortable in our social play groups.
  • If you live in town, but are new to our boarding facility, we will require 1 half day of daycare before determining your dogs’ eligibility for cage-free boarding at Sun Valley Animal Center.
  • If You are a guest in our resort town and would like to leave your dogs at the Sun Valley Animal Center’s Cage-Free Boarding, we will require a letter of good recommendation from your regular daycare or cage-free boarding facility prior to your visit.
  • The management and staff of the Sun Valley Animal Center do reserve the right to remove any dog who poses a threat to himself or others from the cage-free environment. Any dog removed will be boarded in a safer environment more suited to that dog’s personality at the Pet Lodge.
  • Please do not bring personal belongings other than food. Sun Valley Animal Center will provide beds, toys and bowls for your convenience. Personal belongings may create a territorial environment and not allow for the dogs to feel comfortable in our neutral home environment.
  • Boarding Check-ins must be by 5 pm unless prior arrangements have been made. Check – out times must be scheduled at the boarding desk prior to departure.

What to Bring:

pet-lodge-info-featureWe have beds and blankies for everyone. If your dog or cat has a special attachment to something, please bring it. Please make sure it is labeled appropriately. (However, we cannot always guarantee that the item will be returned in the same shape.) We serve Iams, Eukanuba, and Science Diet. If your pet eats something else, we can either feed him Eukanuba Lo-Residue for dogs or Iams maintenance for cats. Please do not bring dishes. If you would like to bring his food, please do so. We would like to minimize change in your pets´ routine as much as possible to avoid stress. Please let us know how much and how often to feed. If your pet is on medication, please remember to bring it with you. Include a detailed instruction as to how much and when to administer. Please make sure all containers are properly labeled. We do not charge for most medications dispensed, however, there are a few exceptions.


All pets boarding at Sun Valley Animal Center's Pet Lodge must be up to date on vaccinations. If vaccinations are due, we recommend making an appointment at least two weeks in advance to your visit with one of our doctors. This will minimize stress in your pet on “check-in” day. If this is not possible we can vaccinate upon your arrival.

Cat Vaccination Requirements: FeLV, FVRCP, and Rabies.
