Ruffin’ It Resort

Policies & Forms

What to Expect

We want all of our guests to have an exceptional time while they’re in our care, and in order to do so, we require that all owners complete the online enrollment as well as provide us with a copy of your dog’s vaccination records. This is an opportunity for you to give us important information about your pooch, so we can ensure they are cared for in a way that’s right for them. We require the following vaccinations:

  • Rabies vaccination

  • Distemper combination vaccination

  • Bordatella vaccination

  • Flu vaccination not required but strongly encouraged

  • Negative fecal test every 12 months or as needed

Once online enrollment is completed, call to schedule a socialization evaluation for you and your pup! On the day of your pup’s evaluation, your dog will slowly be introduced to some fellow guests. In order for your pet to get acquainted with their environment as well as being around a large group of dogs, we only bring out one or two dogs at a time, so your pet does not become distressed. Just like us humans, some dogs easily jump into new social situations while others may take a bit of time to open up, and for some, daycare is just not the right fit for them. That’s okay! These evaluations are meant for us to see how your pup gets along with our other guests to ensure that everyone has a paw-sitive experience!

If you have a preferred food or snack you like your pooch to eat, you’re more than welcome to bring it along! We like to offer our good-natured guests with delicious, high-quality treats as a reward for great behavior.

For owners who want to really spoil their pets, they can opt for their dog to participate in Yappy Hour where we provide gourmet treats such as a chilled doggie sundae for just $4. If you’re ready to get your lovable pooch out of the house and into some serious fun, give Ruffin’ It Resort a call today!
