Canyon View Ranch has been called a “Doggie Utopia,” a “Canine Shangri-La,” a “Wonderland of Waggling Tails.” The five acre Ranch in Topanga Canyon has separate yards, one for large dogs and another for the little ones called Munchkinland. Dogs spend the day romping over ramps, playing hide-and-seek through tubes and underground tunnels, and splashing in a bone-shaped swimming pool.
Randy Neece and Joe Timko opened Canyon View Ranch 12 years ago when they decided that dogs should have a place like Disneyland.
“Dogs bring so much joy to our lives, we thought it would be great to have a place where they could be treated to their own well-deserved vacation,” Neece says. “We wanted owners to be able to go away on vacation or business and not feel guilty about where their dog is staying,” Timko adds.
The dogs are outside playing for six hours a day under constant supervision. At night, they stay in climate controlled Bedroom Villas with soft music and the sound of crickets to lull them to sleep.
The Ranch also offers door-to-door shuttle service, daycare, grooming and a variety of training programs. They encourage the whole family to participate in private lessons along with their dog, so everyone in the household gets off on the right foot and paw. There are photos and information on the website, along with a six minute video of clips from various television shows that have featured Canyon View Ranch. Just click on “As Seen on TV.”
