Alpine Canine is committed to the health and happiness of Missoula’s best furry friends by building a Dog Ranch. We offer full service overnight boarding, Drop-In day camp, and our signature hiking adventure that stimulates dogs mentally and physically—all in a safe environment where they can play and socialize.

Alpine Canine separates ourselves from others by owning our own dog ranch which consists of 72 fully fenced acres with 4 miles of trails and roads, and 3/4 mile of free flowing water. We have a 10,000 square foot indoor/outdoor facility that is temperature controlled, with self-watering bowls, and separate play yards to meet size and athleticism. All of this is built to serve Montana’s Missoula valley area.  Located just off highway 90, exit 101.  Just minutes to downtown Missoula and the Missoula International Airport.  Call us today for more information or to reserve a pick-up for your pet at (406) 541-HIKE.
