DDR Ranch Boss Laurie Russell and friends

If your dog is used to being in a farm atmosphere, or just dreams of being on a farm, the Doggie Dude Ranch is heaven on canine earth! Ten acres surround the DDR and our doggie guests have almost three safely dog-fenced acres to play and romp around with their friends.

We cater to your dog’s needs and provide one on one daily interaction and lots of supervised playtime with friends. We have large dog runs for those who need a more protected and isolated situation, endless toys, games and features. We are an exclusive dog resort and accommodate a limited number of dogs at one time.

Rain Puppy

From the youngest to the oldest, they all love hanging out at the DDR!

We are conveniently located on the northwest vicinity of Ocala in Marion County, just 10 minutes from the HITS show grounds or the Southeastern Livestock Exposition Pavilion and 20 minutes from the Horse Park.

We hope to see you soon!
