~MUDDY DOGS AND GRUMPY CATS WELCOME!!~
We farm organically as much as possible and do not use Roundup
We have apricot,
pomegranate, lemon, orange and grapefruit trees that are over 50
The air smells like sweet orange blossoms and the trees keep the yard cool.
Wishing all of you lots of love,laughs, health and wonderful memories for this upcoming year.
PLEASE READ ALL THE INFO BELOW AND IT SHOULD ANSWER ALL OF YOUR QUESTIONS AND THEN GO TO "CONTACT US" SECTION AND FILL OUT YOUR INFO TO GET STARTED AND WE'LL SEND YOU PET INTAKE FORM TO SET UP A MEET AND GREET.
WE ARE OUTSIDE PLAYING WITH DOGS AND CHECK THE EMAIL FREQUENTLY.
We do board deaf
or some handicapped and/or disabled dogs, or dogs on meds; but it depends on
the situation and if we feel it is safe enough for them to board and
play outside with the other dogs.
Wedding season and spring break is upon us!! If you think you'll need boarding from March-September, please, please book early because we fill up quickly and have a bunch of regular boarders and don't have a lot of space.
We offer a small discount for Veterans, Police Officers, Law Enforcement and LAUSD teachers.
All clients must show a photo ID.
We fill up with regulars when summer hits and from July-August we are booked solid frequently.
We cannot board Pit Bulls, Pit-mixes or any hunting breed mixes. It is mostly me and a few young people who are family friends here helping watch the dogs and we don't have the physical strength or space to handle dogs of that size and muscle.
There are a few ranches in Castaic (by Magic Mountain) and in greater Los Angeles county, (Agoura areas) who have the ability and staff who can accommodate Pit Bulls and Pit mixes and larger hunting breed dogs. You can find them on a Google search and Yelp is a great resource.
Most of the dogs who board here are small to medium-sized sweet dogs who are used to kids and mild mannered.
We do take larger dogs but it depends on their behavior, training and if we have the space and availability.
It's frustrating and expensive to find a good place to board your animals; which is why I started Moon Dogs.
I couldn't find a place I liked for my dogs and everything was insanely expensive and/or not a lot of room or free areas outside that were safe for my dogs to run free for awhile in a city...
If you book early and leave a deposit early when planning a trip, it's a lot less strain on your budget.
We will do our best to accommodate everyone but are a small company and have limited space.
We have a lovely farm and all dogs sleep inside the house or indoors in an air conditioned, climate controlled environment.
We play kids movies and soft nature sounds for them at night to help them sleep.
They sleep inside a climate controlled room or in the house; depending on how busy we are and availability.
We encourage you to bring beds and blankets or a crate/den to help them feel comfy.
We do not board hunting breed mixes, Pit Bulls, Pit Mixes, Rottie's or any kind of hunting breed mixed dogs.
We do not board any aggressive dogs or dogs who snap at me or other dogs regardless of size.
They must be able to play freely outside with other dogs with no problems and not bully or be mean to any of the other dogs.
If your dog has a history of aggression, snaps or growls at me or any of the dogs here, or tries to attack/bite me or my dogs when we meet, then Moon Dogs is not a good fit for you and the meeting will be cut short. If your dog has behavioral issues, Moon Dogs is not a good fit for you.
YOU MUST FILL OUT THE PET INTAKE FORM WITH YOUR INFO AND YOUR PET'S INFO &
EMAIL IT BACK TO ME SO I CAN READ YOUR PET'S HISTORY AND THEN WE CAN SCHEDULE A MEET AND GREET.
THIS IS NOT NEGOTIABLE.
ALL CLIENTS MUST BE ON FILE BEFORE WE CAN SCHEDULE A MEET AND GREET AND HAVE YOU OVER.
It is at our discretion of when we can accept new clients and dogs depending on our availability, season of the year and temperament of your dog.
We reserve the right to refuse service to anyone.
All dogs at Moon Dogs Urban Farm
play and roam on a 20,000 square foot pet hotel that was once an
original orchard and working farm from the early 1900's.
Moon Dogs is a
lot like camp but they do sleep inside a rec room or in the house.
The dogs love to fall asleep (inside the house) to the sound of crickets and night owls (we play movies for them too) and
playing at night under the stars and then they come inside and snuggle in their beds with blankets and pillows.
We have lights outside and they play freely but they all sleep inside in a climate controlled recreation room.
Everyone says their dogs start getting happy and excited as soon as they turn down the street to come stay at Moon Dogs Farm.
That is the best review we could ever ask for.
We farm organically as much as possible and do not use Roundup.
blankets and crates are recommended to bring for boarding so your dog
has her own "den" and safe place to rest at night. They have to be secured in a crate at night when it's bedtime.

and treats we'll feed them.

Yelp is a great resource.
I have two rescued dogs and understand there are differences in temperament;and we try to work with all types of dogs as much as possible

isn't any other pet hotel, dog kennel or pet boarding like Moon Dogs.
Some pets do better in a quiet home atmosphere rather then being with a lot of strange dogs at kennel.
Moon Dogs Urban Farm helps to socialize your dog and they learn from playing with other family friendly dogs who are affectionate.
We have three cats who have their own fenced off area, but sometimes they like to go streaking through the yards and property.
The cats are too mesmerizing for some breeds; and our cats aren't afraid of dogs, so we need to keep them safe.
We are close to Studio City, Sherman Oaks and convenient freeway access
from most areas in Los Angeles.
We have apricot,
pomegranate, Meyer lemon, orange and grapefruit trees that are over 50
years old. The air smells like sweet orange blossoms and the trees keep the yard cool..
try to run an
organic ship; we don't use pesticides or herbicides (sometimes we have
to, like once a year, but really try not to) on the grass so we do have
weeds & prickers sometimes; but that's life on an urban farm..

After rescuing my dog Gracie under a car, I
needed a pet sitter. It was hard to find a place for boarding at a
reasonable price where she could play outside and not have to deal with a
loud and scary kennel.
was used to running free at Moon Dogs Farm; where we have an organic garden
and many mature fruit trees. I wanted to create an affordable place for dogs that
was like the country, but had the convenience of being 20 minutes from
Santa Monica and near Ventura Blvd.
Your dogs will be in a home environment
all of the time & since we don't take a lot of dogs at once; they have lots of quality petting & playing time.
Moon Dogs also works with strays and rescue animals groups.
