Your Dogs Day Care at the Ranch



At the Ocala Dog Ranch, we provide a safe, friendly and structured play experience for your dog.  



Your dog will be matched with their own suitable playmates taking both size and play style into consideration. Through our safe and balanced approach to dog daycare you can have the peace of mind knowing your pet will enjoy optimal levels of play and socialization based on their individual needs.  



Did you know that dogs do not naturally play, socialize or exercise for hours each day? In fact, exposing dogs to excessive play or exercise can be both stressful and physically challenging for your dog. To counter this, we provide a private space between play sessions so your dog can nap, relax and unwind. 


So, let’s get you started today! Just a few short steps and you can be dropping your pup off to play and enjoy our large fenced in grass day care areas with their own playmates  Our goal is to provide your dog the physical and mental enrichment they deserve and the stress-free feeling you desire, a satisfied pet and a relaxed owner is a win-win for all!   


Benefits of doggy daycare:


Dogs are less likely to destroy items in the home due to boredom or lack of vigorous exercise.

Dogs are less likely to disrupt the house or neighbors with nuisance barking.

It provides an outlet for energy release and mental and physical stimulation.

Supervised by a dog trainer for a safe day of dog-cation.

A tired dog is a happy owner!
