Pet Ponderosa - A Dude Ranch for your Pet

Animal Lovers at Heart

Pet Ponderosa Resort & Spa is so much more than your typical dog kennel. Owned and operated by life-long pet lovers, Nancy and Regis Jackson, Pet Ponderosa has long been known as the best ‘pet-cation’ destination in the Pacific Northwest.

Since our opening in 2003, Pet Ponderosa Resort & Spa has been committed to providing top-quality boarding for dogs and cats alike. As the premier leader in pet care service in the South Sound, we hold ourselves to the highest standard of service.

Our compassionate and experienced team full of animal lovers has trained extensively to ensure that every aspect of your pet’s stay is comfortable. With luxuries such as our climate controlled kennels, we cater to your pet’s every need. Pet Ponderosa prioritizes the personalized aspect of pet care, focusing on the individual needs of each guest.

During their stay, your pet will enjoy daily activities that help them get the attention, exercise and socialization they need to stay healthy and happy.

Peace of Mind for You and Your Pet

Stowed away from the hustle and bustle of the city, Pet Ponderosa is perfectly situated in Graham, WA, setting the stage for maximum relaxation for your pet’s retreat.

For Nancy and Regis, owning and operating Pet Ponderosa Resort & Spa is a ‘dream come true’. As registered nurses by trade, they pride themselves on providing a level of care for their furry guests that is second to none.

Though originally from Cleveland, Ohio, the Jacksons have now made Washington their home for some years. They both found their love for animals as children and are delighted to have been able to make a full-time career out of caring for them.

Nancy and Regis find great joy in working hard to give each of their four-legged visitors remarkably personalized care and attention. Their attention-to-detail is unmatched in the pet boarding business. You can rest easy knowing your pet is in capable, caring hands while you’re away.

Making new friends and finally resting

The Right Resort for Your Pet

As a pet parent, dropping your fur baby off at doggy daycare for the first (or even the tenth time) can be stressful! You need to be absolutely sure that they are going to be cared for and comfortable.

That is why here at Pet Ponderosa, we absolutely recommend having your pet start out with an afternoon visit. Let them take a couple hours to mingle and interact with the staff. Give them the chance to get used to our facilities. This will help you decide if it’s a good fit for a longer stay. 

We keep a watchful eye on all of our furry friends and happily answer the anxious calls of any pet parents dealing with separation anxiety while they are away. Knowing your pet is safe and happy is key to your peace of mind while you are on vacation.

Before your dog or cat boards at our pet resort, we make it our business to learn their likes, dislikes, disposition, quirks, or really anything that will help us give them the highest quality of care and ensure that their time with us is truly a pleasure.
