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 left our dog, Reno, at River's Edge Pet Lodge last week and would recommend this kennel to anyone! There is a lot of outside running and playing areas, and the inside kennels are very clean and roomy. Megan took very good care of Reno, and she encouraged us to call and check on her whenever we desired as she said it is not a bother to her at all. Reno hadn't been in a kennel for several years, so she was a tad nervous with the entire experience, but I knew she was in good hands with Megan. Reno would much rather be at home with us all the time, but sometimes that is not possible, so now we know we have a place where we can take her where we know she will be nurtured and kept safe. Susan
