What a wonderful place for any dog to be able to spend time. The staff at HDR have always gone above and beyond in caring for my Eskie Kodi. I would recommend the Houston Dog Ranch to anyone who wants their pet to experience the best. In fact I feel so strongly about the Houston Dog Ranch and the staff that I wrote them the note below expressing just how I feel about them and wanted to share it with anyone interested in finding a place for their pet to flourish and grow. HDR Staff I just wanted to take a few minutes to thank all of you for taking such great care of Kodi during the Christmas holidays. As Kodi and I drove up the driveway to check him in all of the staff was calling out Kodi's name saying hi to him. What a great feeling your staff gave me as a pet owner. I could go away from Houston feeling assured that Kodi was in the best care available. You guys go above and beyond in your care of Kodi! I would leave him with any of you at anytime. Tonia, you and of your staff are the greatest!! Kodi has been coming to the 'ranch' for almost three years and has been slowly molded into a 'new and improved' pet over these years. He began his journey at the ranch with Tonia alone in the HDR field just learning how to react with other animals. Having been abused by another animal made this a daunting task for Tonia, so I thought. She worked with Kodi weekly until he was ready for a 'day-board' stay and finally a 'sleepover' at the ranch. Tonia kept Kodi in the office with her during these sessions so that he would come to trust and love the staff while working on his fear of other animals. After months of work with Tonia and Colleen, he was able to start in the small dog daycare program at the ranch. It has now been almost two years since Kodi was able to join the daycare sessions. Kodi has been given a new lease on his doggie life. He has gone from a scared animal to a loving, quite loquacious pet that loves his Friday's with the HDR staff. He even, at age eleven is now able to join in agility classes on Saturdays. I owe all of you guys at the ranch a giant thank you for helping Kodi become the pet he is today. Thank you Tonia, Colleen, Abby, Delia, Diane, Leslie, Katie, Janna, Stacey, Tracey, Alison, and of course his man Chad for all the love and hard work you have given Kodi over the years. Kodi's vet fondly refers to the ranch as 'Tonia's Playhouse', but I would have to say it has been Kodi's DREAM HOUSE since he has been able to be the puppy he was born to be there.
Pros: Best place in town for your pet to relax and learn!!
