BOARDING

We welcome your dog to come stay with us at The Maddie Ranch. We are now offering overnight boarding where your dog will enjoy a vacation with us so you can have peace of mind while you are away (or home). Whether you have a work obligation, a family gathering, a get together with friends, a vacation (remember those!) or you just want to get your dog out of the city to reconnect with nature and feel fulfilled, we’ve got you covered! 

**On our 8-acre property in nature, all dogs in who enter our boarding program must be approved which ensures the safety and happiness of all dogs staying with us and allows them to enjoy social pack activities together while maintaining excellent behavior.

DAVE DESANTIS

For as long as I can remember, I have been drawn to dogs, and felt they would be an important part of my life. I started working with dogs professionally in 2011, and immediately knew it was right. Dogs have taught me so much.

Each one I’ve cared for over the years has taught me lessons about behavior, communication, trust, and so much more. Having raised my dog Willow with these lessons in mind, I’ve come to a deeper understanding of all those things, along with a much deeper understanding of myself. I started training with the dream of helping other people achieve that special bond they’ve always wanted with their dog.

Now with a decade’s worth of knowledge and experience in various tools and techniques under my belt, I’m living that dream in ways I never knew were possible. There’s so much joy in the harmony between our species. Every dog and dog owner deserves to experience it fully! My passion has led me to Pack Leader Dogs, and I’m excited to share all the lessons I’ve learned!
