Dogs love humans who love dogs.

Bone-A-Fide’s long-term, committed staff is WAY into caring for our canine friends.

We get to know every dog by name, as well as their personalities and habits. The bonding comes easily, since our wranglers stay with the same dogs all day long — from pick-up to drop-off.

We follow strict policies and procedures, all designed to keep dogs safe. For example, our process for entering and exiting the play yards keeps the pack’s excitement level stable. Dogs are never left out in the yards alone, and there’s always enough staff to manage the pack effectively. And part of every wrangler’s job is to pet all dogs — not just to show affection, but to check for cuts or scrapes that could be hiding under fur.

All of our wranglers and staff members are trained in animal first aid and CPR. And of course, the ranch is fully licensed, bonded and insured.

Bone-A-Fide Dog Ranch has been owned by Butters’ and Lennon’s Mom, Lauren Rick, since 2009. Lauren was a professional dog walker in NYC for five years. And here, she’s finally realized her dream of providing a place where dogs can play freely and safely in big, open spaces.

"Bone-A-Fide is heaven for dogs — and heaven for dog owners. Everyone there is extremely knowledgeable about dog behavior, pack mentality, and breed-specific traits. It is so evident that they love every single dog they care for.”
