Dog Boarding

We offer dog boarding 7 days a week, 365 days a year. Ruff House Pet Resort is a social environment; ideal for dogs that want to play and have fun. During the daytime dogs can play for several hours, grouped by size and activity level. All play is supervised by Pack Leaders; trained in safety, dog body language and dog behavior.

Dogs sleep indoors at night with several sleeping options to choose: Suite, Kennel, Crate. Click on any of the live web cameras from our home page links to watch your dog playing in real time. Additional activities and services can be added during your stay to ensure your dog receives the appropriate attention and exercise level.

Overnight Accommodations

All dogs sleep indoors in temperature controlled buildings that are completely safe and secure during the evening. We have several options and sizes to choose for your dog;

Private Suites– Beautifully designed rooms with a full size glass door, raised beds with blankets, and bowl holders for food and water. Dogs from the same family can share or they can be separated for privacy.

Deluxe Kennels– Large sized kennels with plenty of height and length for moving around. Dogs enjoy raised beds and a view of the neighboring dogs. Dogs from the same family can sleep together or may choose separate sleeping areas for privacy.

Crates– Typically reserved for dogs that are crate trained at home and are best for active dogs playing during the day. Crates provide a cozy sleeping area for a restful nights sleep.  Crates are designed for individual dogs and are not meant to be shared. Dogs from same family will be arranged side by side and can play together during the day or go for walks together as requested.

Sleeping accommodations are reserved based on suitability for your dog and availability at reservation.

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.

*Please review the details under Requirements and Registration page.

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
