Dog Boarding

There’s a really big difference between a dog kennel and our luxury dog boarding.

Our bedrooms are fully ventilated, private and enclosed to make your pup feel comfortable and secure. Even more exciting for dogs staying overnight is that they benefit from all of our daycare options as well. You can choose for your dog to spend their day playing inside and outside in our large play areas.

If your dog has special needs above and beyond our regular standards, such as requiring additional bathroom breaks, assistance with 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.

Overnight accommodations include at least 3 potty breaks (additional breaks for dogs not in all day group play), bedtime snacks, comfortable cot, blankets if needed, and all our attention and love! We also use frozen peanut butter kongs, and lick mats if any of our pups are anxious or stressed in their bedroom. Water is always available in every bedroom and every playroom and play yard. We offer house food and treats, although we encourage you to bring your own to help with your dog's digestion. If we notice your dog is having trouble eating, we offer pumpkin, chicken stock, and warm water as add-ins.

Private Dog Boading Bedrooms

These are state-of-the-art bedrooms with solid walls that ensure that your dog is not disturbed by their neighbor next door. Each overnight dog boarding accommodation comes with a cot for your dog’s comfort. Most of our bedrooms are 4 ft x 6 ft and 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 option is only available for dogs that participate in our regular group play option.

Penthouse Suites

This is overnight dog boarding 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 later, but they may be placed in a different area.
