  • What is a Meet and Greet?
    A Meet & Greet is a complementary service where we introduce our dogs and answer each others questions to ensure we are a good fit. The meeting last less than 30 minute in our front yard. Midway through the M&G one of our staff members takes your fur baby (without you) to our fenced in backyard to perform a Temperament Test and introduce them to our pack. We send pictures and come back to share our assessment. What we look for during the Temperament Testing is for your dog to be well adjusted, obedient, well trained and play nice with other dogs. Here is a list of behaviors that require additional attention at an agreed-upon fee: puppy-like behavior, overly excited, not neutered or spayed chews scratches doors escape prone digs counter serfs jumps barks excessively overly anxious pulls on leash cries or whines for attention barging through doors humping nips at other animals

We offer curbside support so call or text when you arrive and wait for Lucinda to greet you prior to exiting your vehicle.
  • What should I bring when my dog stays at Camp Ruff?
    Food (enough for the entire stay and a little extra), leash, collar, any medicines (extra fee may apply) and bedding or something that smells like home. Please label items, this is Camp.
