Ruff Motel Meet & Greet
Club Membership & Registration = $40 nonrefundable
If you are not a current member of House of Ruff, you will need to Join the Club, and your dog will need to go through our two-step Meet & Greet process before we can accept them as a boarder.
The entire Meet & Greet process is waived for current Ruff Daycare members. Step 1 is waived for current Indoor Park members.
1. Meet & Greet : A Ruff team member will greet you and your dog as they arrive at the facility. You must confirm the type of and date your dog last received flea protection, present proof of up-to-date vaccinations* (see Ruff Daycare Rules) and agree to have your dog's temperament evaluated. The process is comprised of evaluating your dog’s ability to tolerate physical handling (mouth, ears, paws, tail) by a stranger without biting or snapping and a trial run described below.
Please contact us to schedule a Meet & Greet appointment. Prior to your appointment, please download and complete the Member Registration form, then email it to firstname.lastname@example.org. Assuming all goes well, we will then schedule the date for your dog’s first day at House of Ruff.
2. Your Dog’s Trial Run: Your dog’s first time at Ruff Daycare must be a half day minimum and considered a “trial run” dependent on his/her ability to socialize and participate with the pack. Doing so provides an opportunity to evaluate your dog’s comfort level and suitability for daycare. Upon pickup, we will provide you with an overview of your dog’s experience, share recommendations or concerns in respect to continued daycare service. Your dog is then placed on a 30-day probationary period to confirm a good fit at House of Ruff.
Note: If issues arise with your dog during the trial run (e.g., aggressive behavior to people or other dogs, extreme discomfort or nervousness), we may call you to pick him/her up earlier.
Ruff Motel Rules
* If your dog's vaccinations are not up to date, House of Ruff recommends you contact Urban Animal. They are a walk-in clinic conveniently located 1-1/2 miles away and do not require an appointment.
