Located on the Old Northwest Road, just outside Lunenburg Town, Albon Dog Ranch opened it’s door to the public on August 8th 2014.
When we first moved to Lunenburg, we were aiming for the clientele in Lunenburg. We then found a beautiful 2 acre property that was central to Lunenburg Town, Mahone bay, Blockhouse/Exit 11 being only 5 minutes from each and still only a short drive to Bridgewater and Chester!
Albon Dog Ranch is owned and operated by Kelsy & Jonathan Lyons. Kelsy has worked with dogs all her life from a young age.. They have three wonderful dogs of their own, Sprint (Border Collie), Tye (Border Collie) and Meka (Husky mix) and one cat Jibbr.
Kelsy worked in a dog boarding facility for 4 years and managed the facility when the owners were away dealing with large numbers of dogs at one time, working with all breeds of dogs, including aggressive dogs. Kelsy has attended dog seminars on Dog Nutrition in Dartmouth, NS and Dog Behavior at Guelph University and has also attended hands on training classes. She is also experienced in bathing, brushing out and nails.
Both Kelsy and Jonathan hugely believe that the dogs care comes first and believe in running a calm, happy facility for both clients and dogs. We want dogs to go home everyday with their tails wagging and sleep in their eyes!
Albon Dog Ranch specializes in Dog Daycare, Overnight Boarding and Long-Term Boarding. Albon Dog Ranch is fully heated using two forms of heat, a heat pump and a pellet stove and air conditioned and is a “DOG FRIENDLY” facility.
