Lodging Expectations

Prior to your first hotel stay, you will have completed a Client Enrollment/Pet Profile, and Client Agreement which includes specific information to enable us to make your pet's stay most enjoyable. You will also sign a Rules & Regulations form.

You will be warmly welcomed to Ruffin' It Resort and your V.I.Pup gets a special treat! We will check you in while your dog is given a chance to check out their surroundings and conduct a 'sniff test'. We'll escort him/her (and you, if you'd like to see the fabulous accommodations) to their bungalow, suite, villa, Central Bark Lounge, Ambassador, or Presidential Suite where they will be further welcomed with a biscuit on their pillow. We'll then accompany him/her outside so he/she can explore the play park and continue to receive love and attention. The entire process takes about 10-15 minutes so please allow some extra time this first visit.

We'll do all sorts of fun activities during their stay and you can call anytime to see how your 'fur baby' is doing. There is also a 'Ruffin' It Remote' in each indoor play park so you can log in and see just how much fun he's having! If you have access to the web while you're away, just call us and we'll bring your V.I.Pup into a play park to wave "Hi." We're really looking forward to having your four-legged friend as our guest.

We promise to make every experience with Ruffin' It Resort the BEST experience by treating every dog as if they are our own with loads of love, attention, and fun! Ruffin' It Resort is about your peace of mind and Sparky's comfort and happiness.
