My dog really enjoys Ruff Housing. She gets mad and chews things up around the house when she doesn't get to go. The staff is awesome and facilities are very clean. If your looking for a great place to take your dogs look no further!! Ruff Housing is the PLACE!!
Awesome place! – We went to visit my family in California for 2 weeks over Christmas and I couldn't take my dog with me:( I was very upset because I had never left her before, but the staff at Ruff Housing was great. They "held my hand" so to speak when I dropped her off and made me feel very comfortable. I called a few times to check on her and they seemed to know her and her personality so well. It was great being able to watch her play with her friends on the webcams and when I picked her up, I don't think she missed us at all! As a matter of fact, after a few days I thought she might be getting kind of depressed because she missed all of her new dog friends, so I have been taking her to daycare at least once a week since and she loves it! Always comes home tired and happy!
My Dogs Love This Place! – My dogs have stayed at Ruff Housing several times and we love it! We have one dog that is very social and she likes to do the all day play option. We watch her play all the time on the webcams and have always been very pleased with the way the staff interacts with the dogs. If a dog goes to the bathroom, they clean it up right away. Our other dog is older and not as social so she does the "private retreat" option and has always done great. The staff has always been very friendly and helpful and we like how there are different options to fit our dogs' needs. The facility is always very clean and the dogs there always seem very happy.
Not Sure About This Place. – I'm not sure about this place. I took my 14 year old dog to Ruff Housing for overnight boarding (3 nights). Most of the kids that work there seem nice but at the same time i'm not sure about how well they have been trained or certified to deal with animals.. especially older ones.
My dog was in an "extra large penthouse suite". ( not really extra large. but it was bigger than a typical large crate) They had a web cam installed so i could check on her. Only thing is- 2 times when I checked on her (checking the webcam every 5 min or so for 1-2 hours or more) I saw she was barking furiously and walking in circles. After about an hour of watching her do this, she peed and pooped inside her room because no one would let her out. I called after 30 minutes of seeing that no one had checked on her yet. When she was let out, it seemed to be for about only 4-5 minutes. Kinda too short for an old dog that has been isolated in a room all day alone. So all in all, I didn't enjoy seeing my dog contained within her own feces and urine. And not being attended to as much as she should have. So 2 stars. 1 for the web cam. 1 for the modern design of the facility. and minus 3 for what i just stated above.
Ruff Housing – Was not pleased at all. My dog was there 3 hours and could not find him on web cams so I went to get him. He was in a crate. It gets worse, He has been sick every since, it has cost us a small fortune. DO NOT GO THERE
Ok Place – Can't say that I am totally comfortable leaving my dog here as I feel uneasy with some of the staff.
A wonderful treat for our pup! – My dog has special needs and requires a lot of "hands on" care. The staff here has been attentive to her needs and have spoiled her with the same level of affection we give her at home. The dogs staying here look so happy and my pup gets all giddy when we pull into the parking lot. I would highly recommend this place to anyone!!!
Your dog will love this place! – Good place to wear your dog out! Overnight boarding works well (bring your own crate or rent one). They are getting more overnight boarders so call in advance!
Your dog must 'pass' the socialization test and have her vet/shot papers before she can do doggie day-care or overnight.
Great idea for pet owners and pets! We love it!
Editorial Review – Doggie daycare where dog get to play and exercise with other dogs and with the center's many fun toys.
Fantastic for Dogs, Fantastic for Owners – This place is the best! My dogs go there and run around all day with other dogs and head home exhausted. It is well worth the money for me to know that they are well taken care of and loved there. They are also doing some overnight care now, but I haven't tried that yet. Cool place.
