Reserve your dog's country vacation today!
Located in a quiet country setting, just 20 minutes outside of Colorado Springs, Wild Loon Ranch Canine Lodge and Activity Center was created with the intent of offering dog lovers an alternative solution to the regular dog boarding environment, without the big city charges. Wild Loon Ranch strives to be a little different than other pet boarding and pet sitting facilities around. At our lodge, we treat your dog with the same care, respect and affection and that we would like our own to be treated. We welcome pampered house dogs, as well as the wild-n-crazy fun-loving types.
Dogs, when not playing, are in comfortable, climate-controlled, large-sized pens for their safety. All dogs are let outside to run and play four to five times daily. We offer turn-out by themselves as we have many separate fenced yards, plus a personal leash walk when weather permits.
We look forward to having new faces come to stay, so please give us a call or use 'contact us' to book your reservation.
El’s unique blend of warmth and personality, combined with her attention to detail, has helped her grow into the seasoned canine handler that she has become. Because of her personality, she has a uncanny way of connecting with all animals, especially dogs.
She started working with dogs over 25 years ago, working in a large-volume animal shelter as rescue coordinator. Later she began working with rescue groups in creating canine rehabilitation and training programs.
In July 2002, El graduated with honors from the U.S. Army AMEDD School of Nursing, and continued to serve for 8 years as a combat nurse. El then went on to acquire an education in veterinary technology and opened her own animal rescue in 2015, while continuing her career in nursing.
After retiring from nursing, El has dedicated the last year to creating the perfect ranch-style canine lodging and training environment. Her love of dogs now lives in creating exceptional boarding experiences for those who come to stay at the Wild Loon Ranch.
The Wild Loon Ranch, inspired by her father's love for the beauty of nature, was created to provide a unique boarding setting for dogs as well as a quaint, country experience for their owners. El added numerous farm animals for everyone to enjoy and there's always plenty of wildlife to see while visiting the ranch. So come visit and sit awhile
