When it is not possible to bring your dog on your travels, The Red Ruff Inn, LLC is here for you! Your dog will enjoy a vacation of their very own, with lots of love and attention.


  • Each kennel is equipped with large individual runs to provide all dogs with the “pack” comfort, but offer the separation needed for relaxation and safety.
  • All runs have both inside and outside corridors, with heat and air conditioning to keep your dog comfortable in the cold of winter, or the hot summer sun.
  • Each indoor kennel is equipped with a high quality orthopedic Kuranda bed for extra comfort.
  • The outdoor kennel area allows spacious room for individual play, or a nice spot to relax in the shade.
  • Every dog is exercised throughout the day to keep them engaged and entertained.


  • Meals are provided according to your dog’s predetermined eating schedule. It is best if you provide your dog’s specific food, as this is much nicer on their tummies. Please pack extra food just in case your travel plans are extended. If you prefer that your dog dine off our menu, there will be a $5.00/per day charge.
  • Medication administration is never an extra charge. All medication must be in the original container with proper labeling.


  • 24-hour smoke/fire surveillance.
  • Perimeter is gated and locked.
  • Owner lives onsite
  • In the unlikely case of emergencies and you nor your veterinarian can
    be reached, your dog will be treated by an emergency animal center veterinarian, at your cost.
