Latest Updates


Dak's Dog Ranch. A different way to board your dog. I take your dog's comfort very seriously. I pride myself in delivering the highest standard of service to every dog entrusted to my care. I believe that each dog is different and I have created an environment where your pet can be given unique care based on age, breed, medical needs, and behavioral traits. I do this by providing a loving, fun, and safe space for all and this is my highest priority. In saying that, I am at it again! I am happy to announce starting tomorrow there will be construction going on at the Ranch. I am installing a natural swimming pond for the 2020 Summer Season. Your dogs will be able to swim and cool off in the Alabama sun this summer. At DAK's I invest in things that I know will make your dog's stay even better. This construction is expected to be completed in the next few weeks and has no effect on any dogs currently at the ranch. I will keep everyone updated through our social media page and website. So, be looking for those photos and thank you for all your business and I will continue to strive to provide the highest standards as promised . - Sabrina
