Manglers Guest Ranch For Pets
We do the "Sideways" trip every spring and last year we added the Los Olivos Wine and Jazz Festival to our itinerary and needed a place to board our doggies, Artie the Wonder Dog and Fearless Freckles. Searching for a good place to board your pets is always a stressful thing, there are so many horror stories out there. But you can put your mind at ease with Mangler's. Its propieter, Jeanene, is a bit of old school "pet nanny", very experienced, knowledgeable and well versed in all aspects of pet care and boarding. The facility is clean and modern, set in the rustic and picturesque ranchlands of the Santa Ynez Valley. The Mangler Ranch would not look out of place in an episode of Lassie, no kidding. The kennels are large and comfortable, filled with toys, cubbys and beds, and are climate controlled. The play areas are large and the dogs get plenty of exercise and sunshine. What else can I say? Reasonable rates, 24-7 on duty pet care, and they even have a Cattery in case you are travelling with your furry feline. Wonderful place. We highly recommend.

My Wife and I use the Mangler’s Ranch every time we need to board our dog Zephyr. It’s located in the beautiful foothills of the Santa Ynez Mountains and you couldn’t imagine a better location. When you think of a normal everyday pet boarding center, you think cement walls, cramped cages, intercity, and unhappy pets. Mangler’s Ranch is the complete opposite. Your pet will probably have more space to run around than he/she does at home. Simply put, it’s clean, safe, and Jeanene (owner/pet nanny) is one of the friendliest people we have met in the area. She even takes the time to give zephyr his ear infection medicine drops. It feels as if we are dropping our pet off with someone that we know. Zephyr is happier leaving the ranch then when he arrived. And we couldn’t be happier about that. And the cherry on the cake…It’s the best price in town!

We just moved to the Santa Ynez valley and needed to find pet sitters for our two labs. We found Manglers. What a fantastic facility: clean, neat, large kennels and turn out....but the best reason to board there is Jeanene the "pet nanny". My girls were happy and loved while we were away. We will be regulars there. XOXOXO

We always trust the great staff at River's Edge with our Knuckles when we go out of town. It is a great feeling knowing that he enjoys it there and we don't have to worry knowing he is in good hands. We highly recommend River's Edge to all of our friends.

Just picked up beagle from a 10 day stay at the Pet Ranch. Jeanene made me feel so comfortable. She such a great person and has been doing this for years. The kennels are very clean.
Tips & Advices
Pets that do not get along with other animals may incur an additional fee. Some facilities have special solitary sleeping and play animals for these types of pets.
A checklist for what to bring to a pet kennel includes:
  • Vaccination records
  • A favorite toy or blanket
  • Food and feeding instructions (if the pet has dietary restrictions or is a picky eater)
  • Medication (if necessary, in its original bottle and with written instructions)
Some pet kennels have veterinarians as part of their daily staff, while others only have vets part time or on call.
Most kennels can provide basic care such as administering medications, but owners of pets with serious medical issues should choose a facility with a veterinarian on call.
Bordetella, commonly known as kennel cough, is highly contagious, and most dogs catch it at least once in their lifetimes. As such, all dogs should be vaccinated at least 7 days before boarding.
