OC Dog Ranch

Elite Obedience - Outdoor Adventure


The OC Dog Ranch is the premiere dog training camp in Southern California. Our five acre facility gets at the root of what dogs love — space to run, things to climb, and endless play. By providing a lush and beautiful landscape, we can train canines for life-long obedience. Give your family member the best education in California at a place you can truly feel good about leaving your beloved pet.


OC Dog Ranch Services

A place you can feel good sending your dog to.


Off Leash Boot Camp

Loving, caring, focused trainers.

Our five acre “facility” is less of a facility, and more of a camp, located just 20 minutes east of San Juan Capistrano in the Cleveland National Forest. Here, dogs enjoy plenty of room to play, train, and perfect their obedience skills.

Dogs love trees, grass, and even dirt. So why send them to a concrete kennel for training? Just because they are here to learn doesn’t mean they should be in a overcrowded building. They should romp, wrestle, and roll in a fresh outdoor environment. Our ranch is a dog heaven and your dog’s enjoyment is our number one goal.

In addition to having a spacious, natural setting for our programs, we also boast one of the quickest off leash programs available. Why send your dog for 4-8 weeks somewhere else when you can transform your dog in one of our 12, 17, or 22 day programs? If you hesitate to send your dog away for training because you are worried about being away from your beloved pet, our beautiful facility and accelerated off leash programs may be exactly what you are looking for! 


The Best for Your Pet

If you’re like most people, dogs are not just pets, they are members of the family. So its understandable that many owners are apprehensive about sending their best friend to the average dog boarding facility. You may even have toured several such facilities and been met with loud barking dogs, crowds of 30+ dogs with only a few staff members trying to control the chaos.

Thats where OC Dog Ranch is different. While your pet stays with us, we treat them like they are part of our family. We never overcrowd our facility so we can create a fun, stress and bark free environment. Our philosophy centers around making sure the dogs get plenty of attention and exercise during their stay so they are outside 90% of the day running around different areas of our 5 acre facility. Each play group is comprised of an average of 6-8 dogs and are supervised at all times by one of our professional handlers. We invite you to come tour our facility by appointment and you will see why OC Dog Ranch is unlike any facility you can find in Southern California.
