Ruff Housing provides day care, lodging, grooming and certified obedience training in 20,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor play space. The new building contains 66 individual sleeping areas and 14 private penthouse suites, each of which comes with its own flat-screen TV. Four indoor playrooms for dogs of all sizes, a grooming room, and reception and food preparation areas also are available, while a 10,000-square-foot outdoor play yard is covered in high-quality K-9 artificial turf for dogs of all sizes.


"We wanted a place that would offer the best of everything," says co-owner Kim Vaughn. "Ultimately, our goal was to make this a safe and happy place for the dogs."
