Brought my dog "Rat" here on several occasions. He is well cared for. Profesional with good facilities.

I'm here to edit my review on December 14, 2021. We haven't boarded our dog here for a while because of covid, and we have traveled less. But the last time we picked up our dog from here, she was hoarse from barking... don't know if they could have limited her barking, but she had a cough when we picked her up. My old review: Clean facilities and friendly staff, reasonably priced. We boarded our dog there for a week and they took great care of her. We will use them any time we can't bring her with us.

Got a really weird vibe from the owner.

We boarded our large Anatolian shepherd for about 10 days while moving to HS from Texas. Suzie is very sweet, but can be nervous and not eat well. She came home looking wonderful, and very happy. The staff was very kind when I called to check on her. She is also somewhat of a Houdii, they managed to keep her safe and on premises. Very grateful for the excellent care!

We love the care that our boys received so much that we have scheduled them to stay again this month for 3 days. The Doggie Dude Ranch in Hot Springs, Ar. is a great place for your fur babies to go on vacation while you are on vacation.

Very rude. Charged for 2 days and I only stayed 24 hrs. their policy: if you don't pick up bf noon you get charged for an extra day ... Hmmm.. they don't open for pickup until 3 pm - so they charge everyone an extra day. Total Racquet! they did give me a refund after I complained but very very unprofessional and very unfriendly. Be sure to check your receipt.

Excellent care for our dogs over the past 10 years, first our Corgi for many years, and now our Whippet. We feel comfortable while traveling, knowing great care and attention has always been provided to our dogs. Kenny and Erin are real "dog people"; very knowledgeable and treat our dogs like family, and our dogs love going there! Have also taken training classes there, with great information and techniques geared to the specific dog and his or her breed characteristics. Highly recommend Doggie Dude Ranch!

I’ve boarded our dog here twice. Both times were, unfortunately, on very short notice but they were really nice and accommodating. When I picked my dog up, he was happy, healthy, and clean. I’ll definitely be coming back!

This is a great place for daycare and boarding. The staff is friendly and truly cares for your pets. It’s clean and smoke free. We RV and needed a place for daycare. I couldn’t have been happier than to have found Doggie Dude Ranch. If we lived in the area, they would be my permanent facility.

The Doggie Dude Ranch is a very nice place, the drop off and pickup of our 4-dogs & 4-cats went very smoothly. Kenny and the crew were very helpful. We wouldn't hesitate to bring our dogs & cats back as everything went perfectly!

I boarded my dog here and she was exercised and had a grassy place to play! She was calm and happy when I picked her up and I could tell she was well treated. The staff is so friendly and helpful. I recommend Doggy Dude Ranch to everyone needing to board their pet.

My Maddie ( German Shepherd) came back Happy as could be, pretty soon her and her Chihuahua mix sisters will be staying again and I have the ease of knowing they will be well cared for while we are gone!!

My dog just came home from training here. This dog did NOT listen and would freak out jumping everywhere like some kind of rabid rabbit on a leash lol. My boy came home and after 2 weeks training is like a different dog! He listens now. He sits before going out the door. He will pull on the leash but he will stop if asked and I say with me and he's there. Jumping is mostly gone he has his moments but! He literally is better all around. Thank you!

We’re from Texas and we boarded our dogs just for one day so we could go to the Wegener Crystal Mine (one of our dogs gets anxiety around lots of people). It’s on the way from Hot Springs, and the whole process was very fast and efficient. I called them to see if they had availability, filled out an online registration form, and dropped the dogs off. The facility is beautiful and clean, and the owner was very professional. The dogs were well taken care of and after a day of fun, they were happy and tired. And their fees were super affordable! Wish there was a facility like that close to where we live!

Our Aussie, LOVES the Dude Ranch. We have to spell it out (DDR) because when he hears it or Kenny's name, he goes "wild" and rushes to the car!

Dog obedience training surpassed my expectations! My dog is more confident and I have a better understanding of my dog. I got so much out of it I’ll be going back with my dog to take more classes. I highly recommend KEP Doggie Dude Ranch & Farm!

This is the most remarkable place. It’s like my dog has gone to sleepover camp. She’s so excited to be left there!

We are very particular where we take our dog, as I’m sure you are too. We have been taking our 14 year old springer with us to Hot Springs with us since she was a puppy. She is always well cared for at the Doggie Dude Ranch, and in the best hands we have found anywhere. We couldn’t be more satisfied with everything they offer.

They are Knowledgeable and hands on, and we are very happy with the first meeting. Excited for our Aussie to have manors and be a good boy, our training classes start Thursday. Kenny was great!!

Very friendly and took great care of our 2 yorkies. They usually snub me after I leave them somewhere ???? but they were really happy when I picked them up, which means they enjoyed themselves.

Great boarding facility. It's very beautiful. Staff are clearly animal people and very responsive. My dog Graham is still learning to be socialized and they worked with his shyness extremely well. Hoping to take training classes in the future! Thank you for being great caretakers. Price is very reasonable.

Found our new boarding place! So happy. They showed us around the facilities and made me feel really comfortable that my dog was going to be taken care of and have space to enjoy outside. Apollo was excited to be there thinking it was a dog park and when I picked him up he was just as happy.

I spent almost 2 years in Arkansas with my elderly dog. Due to my travel schedule, I had to board her several times over those two years. Gracie was so well cared for at Doggy dude ranch, both with her kennel experience and with being groomed. They called her Miss Gracie Mae! I highly recommend Doggy dude ranch and farm!
