Group Play and Day Care
Most dogs enjoy socializing in groups. Day Care (group play) is included while boarding and is provided in a safe and fun environment. The dogs are grouped by size and temperament. Play yards have ramps, blocks tunnels, and beds. If your dog needs a break or rest time they can choose to lay on the beds provided in the play area or can be moved into their over night sleeping area for a nap.
Each guest is unique in his temperament so we require a “meet and greet” at the time of registration. If guests are not suitable for group play we have individual play-time options available for your convenience.
Day Training and Brush Up Lessons
This training is a convenient and inexpensive way to teach your dog a new behavior or correct a bad habit. You can add day training sessions or brush up lessons to your boarding stay. Manners, leash walking, socialization, no barking, stay, down, or recall are some of the most common requests. Upon drop-off simply fill out the day training form and we’ll schedule sessions with a trainer . At pick-up you will receive a written recap and progress report for your records.
Ruff House Pet Resort guests enjoy dining in the morning and in the evening with lunch provided upon request. We recommend bringing your regular dog food while boarding since some dogs don’t adjust well to a new diet. We ask that you bring your food in small containers or zip lock bags with your dogs name and feeding instructions clearly marked. Please do not bring your bowls, scoops, spoons or any extra things.
If you choose not to bring your own dog food we will provide “house” dog food at no additional charge. Please keep in mind it is common for dogs to get an upset stomach or diarrhea if they change food while boarding with us.
We have strict medication instructions. Medications need to be in their original bottles and clearly labeled with the following: dogs name, medication name, dosage, times per day, and your veterinary information.
Please note: There is a $1 fee per dosage
