Pet & Dog Friendly Ranch Vacations

2 riders on with a dog on a trail

Take your dog with you to dog-friendly ranch vacations! If your dog is fit for long-distance mountain traveling, doesn’t chase anything but toys, and stays off the furniture – they may be a great fit on a dude ranch. Even if you have an older dog whose running days are drifting away, they can relax at the ranch while you’re trail riding and join you later for an afternoon of fishing or a stroll around the ranch property.

Ranch vacations are famous for their hospitality and the ranches listed below would love to treat you and your pet like family. However, ranches consider pets on a case-by-case basis and would like the opportunity to discuss the specific animal(s) you are traveling with and if it would be a good fit for the ranch. The ranchers have to ensure a safe environment for you, the dog, and the animals on the ranch and therefore have variable pet policies. Please contact the ranches individually to find out more about their dog-friendly policies and requirements.
