The five-acre Ranch is a “Wonderland of Wagging Tails” where dogs frolic
together all day, romping over ramps, playing hide-and-seek through underground tunnels and tubes, wading in their own bone-shaped swimming pool or running behind a cascading waterfall. And all the ball-chasing

Every place we checked out left us racked with guilt at the thought of leaving them there. One day, we were wandering around Disneyland when a thought occurred to us: Why don't we create something like this for dogs?
We set out looking for land and found the perfect spot in the countryside of Topanga Canyon, located in the hills above Malibu. At the time, it was just a house in the middle of five acres of weeds and sage brush. But soon we cleared the grounds, trucked hundreds of trees up the hill, planted an orchid and gardens, and created large parks for the dogs.
And now, 18 years later, Canyon View Ranch is the ultimate resort where people can feel good about giving their dogs a vacation while they go away on one of their own. And if there are behavioral issues and training is needed, we can provide that too.
From training to boarding we’re all about giving your dog lots of love and attention, friends to play with, and hours of adventure. We love that they’re all having such a great time here – but to tell you the truth, we don’t know who’s getting more joy out of this – the dogs or us!
We provide grooming for dogs while staying with us so that all our guests return home clean and ready for some hugs from you.
