We are located on Mays Rd 2 mins from the highway for easy access. We have 6 foot high fenced pens, 1/2 acre in size each. Inside new, large kennels at night.
If you’re going away – don’t send your dog to a “kennel” – send them on their own vacation! We believe dogs need to run and play, not sit in a cage all day! Dogs are only in their safe kennel space at night. Give your dog an exciting, stimulating vacation.
Cedar Ridge is located in the beautiful Cowichan Valley, Duncan, BC on 27 stunning acres. Cedar Ridge is one of the only facilities in the Cowichan Valley where dogs can be outside running and playing in an open play setting on acreage. We believe dogs should not spend their days locked up. Our dogs enjoy a property filled with large Cedar trees, Fir trees, pasture, playhouses & fun obstacles. Each dog is fed and sleeps in their own area where they are able to see their friends. We place each dog near a dog they liked during the day. The dogs are tired from a day of playing and sleep quietly with their friends around them.
Our dogs spend most of their day in one of our 4 play yards. We divide dogs by size, play styles and energy level. Dogs must be well socialized to be in this environment. All dogs require TWO trials prior to boarding to view temperament and allow your dog to feel comfortable prior to your vacation. This starts with a 1 hour trial and then for boarding a 24 hour trial if they show nice doggie etiquette during the 1 hour trial. We make every effort to work with doggie parents on problem behaviours if we can. Please ask us how we can help your pooch integrate well into our setting.
Our dogs are our best testimonials. Most dogs know they are coming to play as soon as their owner’s turn onto Mays Rd. You will be amazed to see how excited your dog will be when he comes back again and again to Cedar Ridge. Your dog will have his own vacation or “second home”!

Our facility consists of 1/2 acre pens (half grass, half forest) for the dogs to run in together nestled on 27 beautiful acres. The ratio is generally 10-15 dogs per 18,000 sq ft. Most dogs think this is a great big dog park! No cement pads with rows of barking dogs.
The dogs are outside in the large pens during the day, come in at dinner time for dinner amp; a rest, then out at bedtime for a romp amp; potty time, back in all night for bed.
Small dogs have their own areas unless they normally play with large dogs and may do so with owner’s permission.
