Canyon View Ranch for Dogs Is Pooch Paradise
Canyon View Ranch/Randy Neece
Situated on five acres of land nestled high above the hills overlooking Malibu, Calif., Canyon View Ranch for Dogs -- at least from the exterior -- is easily mistaken for a luxury spa for humans. After turning off Pacific Coast Highway, a winding road delivers you to the gates of the ranch, where you're greeted by towering trees, lush palm plants, and the sound of waterfalls.
"There was nothing but a house, the driveway and acres of scrub brush and poison oak when we bought this place," Neece tells Paw Nation during a tour of the grounds on a sunny December afternoon. It took Neece and Timko several years to transform the rugged landscape into the pooch-centric paradise they had envisioned when they set out to create the kind of place where they'd want to board their own eight Tibetan terriers.
