Dog Boarding in a Loving Environment

There’s a really big difference between an ordinary dog kennel and our personalized dog boarding. At Ruff Housing, your pet will be cared for and loved on in a safe, happy environment while you’re away. It’s just like a people hotel, but for dogs (and perhaps even more comfy)! Plus, we are one of the only facilities that offer 24 hour supervision for your dog. We’re available for those middle of the night potty breaks or late night belly rubs, giving your dog the one-on-one care they need. They won’t feel left alone in our dog hotel.

For overnight stays, we offer several options:

Private Bedroom: These are state-of-the-art bedrooms with solid walls that ensure that your dog is not disturbed by their neighbor next door. Each bedroom comes with a cot for your dog's comfort. Bedrooms are either 4 ft x 6 ft for our large and medium dogs or 3 ft x 5 ft for small dogs. There is plenty of room for sibling dogs to stay together! We also offer a few family bedrooms available for larger dogs to lodge together, or for three or four dogs to stay in the same bedroom. 

Slumber Party: Our Slumber Party is a wonderful, communal take on overnight dog boarding. Your dog will spend the night in a room on their own bed or cot without being in an enclosure. Our trained staff member spends the night in the room with your dog and up to a maximum of nine other dogs to ensure your dog's safety and comfort.  (Dogs will be separated into enclosures during breakfast and dinner times.) This is a great option for those dogs that are uncomfortable being by themselves at night.

Penthouse Suites: This is overnight dog care at its finest. Our Penthouse Suites are extra large suites that feature individual webcams which you can access with your private password 24 hours a day. Each room has an individual TV that can provide comforting background noise or special video and TV programs made for the viewing pleasure of the dogs!

(Check-in time for Penthouse Suites is 3pm and check-out time is 12pm. Your dog can arrive sooner or stay layer, but they may be placed in a different area).


Even more exciting for dogs staying over night is that they benefit from all of our doggie daycare options as well. You can choose for your dog to spend their day playing inside and outside in our large play areas. We offer Group Play or Enrichment as options for what you feel your dog needs most. 

See our Dog Daycare tab for more information on daytime options when lodging your dog.

If your dog has special needs above and beyond our regular standards, such as requiring additional bathroom breaks, assistance during feeding, or needing a little help getting around, just notify us in advance so that we can discuss a specialized plan for your dog.

All dogs attending Ruff Housing must provide proof of current Rabies, Distemper/Parvo and Bordetella vaccines from a licensed veterinarian. 

Please call us at one of our convenient locations in Winston-Salem or Greensboro to book your dog's stay.
