Dog Hotel Penthouse

Dog Boarding in Winston Salem

Our personalized dog boarding is very different from any other ordinary kennel you will find in Winston Salem. Ruff Housing provides a safe, happy environment, where you pet will be cared for and loved on while you’re away. Think of it as a comfy hotel, for pets! We provide 24 hour supervision for your dog, so that we can take care of those nighttime potty breaks and late night belly rubs.  We give your dog the one-on-one care they need, so they won’t feel left alone.

For overnight stays, we offer several options:

Private Bedroom: Our state-of-the-art bedrooms feature solid walls that ensure your dog is not disturbed by their next door neighbor.  We provide a cot in each bedroom for your dog’s comfort.  The bedrooms are 4 ft x 6 ft and there is plenty of room for sibling dogs to stay together! We also offer a few larger bedrooms for families, this way larger dogs, or three or four dogs, from the same family can stay together.

Slumber Party:  Our Slumber Party is a wonderful, communal take on cage-free dog lodging. Your dog will spend the night in a large room, on one of our cots or their own bed, along with a group of other dog friends. Our trained staff member spends the night in the room with all of the dogs (it is limited to ten dogs) to ensure each 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 premium overnight dog care. Our Penthouse Suites are extra-large suites that feature individual webcams which you can access 24 hours a day with your private password. Each Penthouse has an individual TV that can provide comforting background noise or TV programs made for the dogs viewing pleasure.  Includes complimentary Tuck-In Service, which includes a 5 minute belly rub and a special treat. 

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

Our overnight guests can also benefit from all of our doggie daycare options as well. You can choose for your dog to spend the day playing with their friends inside and outside in our large play areas. We offer Group Play and Enrichment as options, so you can choose what you feel your dog needs most.

We know that some dogs have special needs above and beyond our regular standards, such as needing additional bathroom breaks, assistance during feeding, or needing a little help getting around.  Please 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 336-765-7833 to book your dog’s stay. 

Our pricing is structured so that you only pay for what you use and we charge separately for days and nights. So, if you drop off your dog after 4pm or pick up your dog before 10am, you are not charged for the daytime option.  See our pricing page for lodging rates.
