We are so thankful for this facility and our pups love it too. Our 2.5 year old goldendoodle has struggled in the past with anxiety and socializing at other facilities but from day one Debra and the staff ensured he was around the right friends and he is having a blast at daycare! Our four month old comes home happy and exhausted as well even after just a partial day. Debra trains both pups and is patient with us (humans) and amazing with them. Definitely recommend The Range Pet Lodge and thankful for the great staff and care!

The Range Pet Lodge has been a huge part of my family’s life for many years now. We’ve used training, daycare and lodging for our two boxers. Deb, Katy, Kim, Mary, Bobbie and the rest of the staff love our pets as much as we do. I highly recommend this business.

We used Deb to help train our lab puppy. She was excellent! Cannot recommend enough. She helped us learn how to manage our puppy's endless energy, and helped with simple training that will benefit both the puppy and us for years to come. All positive reinforcement based. She also worked around our busy schedules. Definitely worth it! Thank you all!

My cat, Whitney, stayed here for a couple of weeks while we were in Europe. She’s 19, and this was her first ever boarding experience. Thank you to everyone who made her stay pleasant and comfortable. Thank you to Debra and Kristin for sending pics of her, which made me feel at ease that she was in great care. I highly recommend!

Need to fix their hours online and on the door.
Rushed here in a severe emergency with my injured dog and it was closed. Not an ideal situation to have to drive a dog all around town looking for somewhere that might be open but might not.
Do yourself a HUGE favor and NEVER take a pet to any VCA. My dog Murphy had been going to VCA since he was a puppy. I thought they did a good job up until they were acquired by a very large corporation, Mars.corp. Since then I believe the level of care went downhill while the prices went up. What used to seem like a pet care centered culture is no more. Unfortunately, even after it became clear to me that money was driving a lot of the services they were pushing on me and my dog, I chose to stay there because I didn't want him to have to go someplace unfamiliar since he was older. It was a mistake that tragically ended in Murphy's untimely death. Thankfully, I've had much better care experience with Noah's and I truly believe they care about what's in the best interest of the pet as opposed to VCA.

The staff at VCA Range Pet Lodge is second family for our hounds, Timber and Darley! The hounds are very excited to go the minute we leave the house. They go to daycare weekly and have been boarded and will continue to be boarded on numerous occasions. The facility is very clean and hospitable. Highly recommend!

We love being there for Timber and Darley and sincerely appreciate all your support, Karmen. Thank you for your review, and we look forward to seeing you at the next visit! VCA Village Park Animal Hospital and The Range Pet Lodge
I highly recommend this facility. For the past six years I’ve use it for boarding and grooming. The vet on-site came in handy when my dog had an issue. The vet contacted me and explained every detail. Love the staff and so does my dog. She’s happy to see everyone when she arrives.

We took our 1.5 yo corgi puppy for the Life Skills training. He is a good dog, but just needed recall help (come, jumping, leash walking, etc). Our trainer Debra was amazing and so helpful! By the end of the training, our dog had improved so much. It is so nice to have a happy dog, who now has some manners/skills. Amazing training and staff! Would recommend highly!

Crystal, it has been a pleasure to be able to work with your pup to get him properly trained. We are glad you are seeing improvements, as this was our goal. Thank you for your recommendation and know we are always here for support if needed!
The doctors and vet techs are awesome, but I want to take a second and give a shout out to Mary at the front desk. Every time I call she remembers me and my two cats and is very knowledgeable about appointments, procedures, food, etc. In my opinion, she's a valuable team member that is just as important as the doctors in terms of my decision to keep brining my animals there, even though I live a bit farther away now.

I wanted to thank Kristen and Deb for training our pup maisel. Maisel loved going to school and she loved learning. We have been practicing our training and we realize how well she responds to “yes”. I would highly recommend these 2 trainers for great training.

I’ve done the research on EVERYONE in the area so let me save you some time. Make The Range and Debbie your one stop shop for boarding, training, and daycare. Following training I get asked everywhere I take my puppy if he is training to be a therapy dog, he’s that good now!
I have taken my Mini Golden Doodle puppy to The Range for Puppy Head Start and I wanted to share my experience. Debbie and team cannot be better! Reyka is a pretty good puppy, but he has a lot of energy and doesn’t always want to listen to commands. After 2 weeks with Deb and team he is great at sit, come, and his tricks. His recall has improved 100%. I even was able to call him back from an open fence in our backyard without a treat.
As a bonus he LOVES going in. Whenever we pull up to the building he gets so excited to go to training. I can tell they really care for their puppies in day care, training, and boarding. I even signed up for additional training down the road as he grows. I called and researched everyone in the area and I am so glad I landed here!

We had a fantastic experience with the Puppy Head Start program at The Range. Poppy, our 5 month old golden retriever, needed some quick help with leash pulling, jumping, etc- she is growing quickly and with three little kids at home we needed intensive training that would help us quickly get these behaviors under control! Deb was FANTASTIC with Poppy, and with us. I frequently brought my kids with me to the lessons and she seamlessly integrated them into the training, which was incredibly helpful. Poppy loved going each day! She also had lots of socialization time which was wonderful. Most importantly, we saw a dramatic improvement over the two weeks. There is less jumping, much better walking- I can let my kids walk her now! Not to mention many many other commands and behaviors. We learned so much and I feel much better equipped to keep up with her training at home. We can't say enough about The Range and Deb and Kristin's experience- the whole staff was amazing! I am grateful we found them!

I take my dog Teddy to Range Pet Lodge for daycare and boarding.
I recently brought her there for training as well. Debbie did a remarkable job transforming some of Teddy's behavior issues in just a few days. The dog is a wonderful little girl but would not mind when called inside and liked to jump on people to say hello.
After two days of training, we could see a transformation in her bad habits. Debbie and Kristin were also very thoughtful in assisting my husband and I in our training to support Teddy's success.
I highly recommend the service that was provided.

Thank you so much for the best care and training for our almost 1 year old, Lambeau. She loved being "on holiday" at the pet lodge and was so well cared for and loved. Additionally, the dog training program here is TOP NOTCH! About a month ago, Lambeau completed her training with Deb and Kristin, and she is not the same dog. Prior to training, she was always jumping on people, getting on the table 🤣, and couldn't sit still! Now, she responds to all of the commands, has calmed down a lot, and knows her boundaries in and around our home. Thanks for taking care of our furry friend!
