We absolutely LOVE Ruffgers! All of the staff is always so pleasant and accommodating! Our lab goes to doggie daycare. We love that they keep the dog ratios down and incorporate training during the time there! They always have great advice or recommendations on specific training and behavioral questions. Simba is always SO happy to go and never wants to leave when we try to pick him up. Our dog means everything to us, and I never worry about him while he is there! I would recommend this place percent to any dog owner! ❤️ . More...

Ruffgers is the best. The training classes they offer really train you to train your furry friends. And the boarding is great, they will continue training while your pooch is staying with them. so glad we found Ruffgers!

We were introduced to Ruffgers by attending a training class with our chocolate lab puppy. Magnus loved his class and started learning the basics. When he was about 6 months old we started taking him to doggie day care with training. The team at Ruffgers spends quality time training each dog and will work on general training or specific behaviors that you experience with your pup. Currently Magnus goes to “school” 3-4 days a week. We know he is loved and comes home tired from his play time with his besties at Ruffgers. I give the Ruffgers team the highest recommendation.

It is no exaggeration to say that our family has a well mannered, socialized, sound, happy and healthy pup because of our association with Ruffgers. We brought our pup, Belle, to Ruffgers when she was just 3 mo. old for her first puppy manners class. Since that time we have utilized their facility for both continued training, day care and overnight boarding. She has learned her doggie manners from the other pups (as only they can teach), has been provided with a safe place to play, receive much love, many belly rubs and comes home a tired and happy pup. Their indoor training and play space is especially appreciated during these hot summer days when outdoor exercise is harder to come by! I give a hearty recommendation to Ruffgers and a heartfelt thank you to Aschely, Gigi and all the remarkable staff who keep Belle and our whole family looking forward to more fun at Ruffgers!

My 3 year old mini labradoodle has been coming to Ruffgers regularly for 1/2 day daycare plus training over the last 2 years. He always enjoys going to Ruffgers and they are so wonderful with him. They understand we are working with him on "jumping up" and have helped him become less excitable with strangers. Last fall, we also boarded Snickers for a 10-day trip and they were wonderful posting his pictures each day on Instagram and Snapchat so we could see him while we were away. We have used both the Davis location and the Bonita Springs location for boarding and daycare. We highly recommend both locations. More...

We absolutely LOVE Ruffger’s and more importantly, so does our pup! We adopted a rescue almost a year ago and found Ruffgers when looking into their pet manners class. The trainers are amazing!! We even decided on utilizing their doggie daycare (with training) package after we completed the pet manners course. Our little guy goes in every week and over the months, we have seen huge improvements. He responds so well to their trainers and its awesome to see how far he’s come. He’s so excited every time we go in that I honestly think he looks forward to it all week! Ruffgers Dog University is the BEST! Thank you guys for all you do and keeping are furry babies so happy!!

My Bear, English Black Lab, is very important to me so when my boarding kennel closed I was panicked he had been there since 7 months old, he is 4 years now. I immediately checked to find another to match but interviewing the first few I thought I would never find another. Ruffgers is everything you want when trusting your Bear to a stranger. The staff there is hands on; they love dogs and have a total understanding of them. A very important factor is that they are clean, no smells! This is a business, not someones hobby! Thank you Ruffgers! More...

I have been bringing my pup to Ruffgers since she was 12 weeks old. ( she is 7 mos. now) We have participated in a number of their training classes and She goes to daycare at least once a week for socialization, training, exercise and downright fun! I love this facility for their professionalism served up with a personal posture. A perfect combination! Most importantly, my pup has a safe and clean place to hang out with her buddies where she is loved and looked after. Their help in her training has been invaluable and I would not hesitate to board her here when we are in need. Aschley, Gigi and the entire staff do a stellar job....I highly recommend Ruffgers!

After our Boston Terrier was 'let go' from another dog daycare facility, we turned to Ruffgers. Not only do they have a large, clean facility but they are able to split the dogs into smaller groups to reduce the anxiety that our dog had when in a pen with a large group of dogs. They understood his issue immediately. They also offer training during his daycare visits and boarding which has helped him tremendously. We highly recommend! More...

The training and doggie daycare they provide are top notch! I have just completed puppy AKC Allstar training and my dog's responded so well! They are excellent! At 4 months old, she responds to voice commands and is happy about everything. When I need the daycare, they are extremely accommodating. You get a report at the end the day of everything that happens. I would not hesitate a second if you need to leave your dog or for training! Everyone is so friendly and genuinely happy to be at work and to see your dog! Keep up the great work! More...

I brought my 6mo old puppy there after being referred from a friend when needing help w short notice and Ruffgers lived up to the referral. They were able to do the assessment and take her all in the same day for a half day of day care. She came home so sleepy from playing all day. The best part is they update their snapchat and insta story all day so you can see what your furry ones are up to. The girls who were there were also super friendly and helpful. Will recommend them to others for sure. More...

I am sharing this recommendation about Ruffgers Dog University, so that other loving pet owners have the opportunity to experience the benefits of Ruffgers training, daycare and boarding services, that I have come to enjoy! As the proud owner of a new poodle puppy, I wanted to be sure I found a facility that integrates outstanding training services with a caring and accommodating approach as I have found with Ruffgers.Ruffgers was came highly recommended by my puppy’s veterinary team for their professionalism and competency in individualized training services. They even provide written “report cards “ to support my efforts in training consistently at home.For me, the best benefit of my puppy attending Ruffgers is the convenience and peace of mind I have when I entrust my puppy to them during a prompt and always easy drop off, at any time during the day. Their flexibility is amazing and I always leave knowing Prince will be cared for with the love, care and attention he deserves.Ruffgers is always immaculately clean, responsive to our needs and knowledgeable about all aspects of pet care and training. My puppy’s diet has improved 100% as the result of their expertise and advisement. Their trainers are top notch!We are very fortunate to have a first class per training and care center so conveniently located and accessible for our precious four legged companions, and Ruffgers makes it so easy.I hope you will give Ruffgers an opportunity to improve your dog’s skills and behavior while offering you a respite free of worry or concerns. It’s a win-win partnership that is most well deserved!Thank you, Ruffgers! More...

To sum up our experience with Ruffgers in Bonita Springs, there is no better place for our dog. I've never left a dog anywhere overnight before, and we've had many dogs. We found ourselves in a new state (FL) and a need for dog care without anyone to help. After looking everywhere, we were lucky enough to find Ruffgers. They had us drop Sweetie (our rescue Pit) off for 90 min before the scheduled trip so that they could figure out what room was best for her and what types of dogs she would get along with. When it was time to pick her up, she tried breaking back in Ruffgers to stay! Before our scheduled trip, I had medical emergency and Ruffgers took Sweetie in many times. No matter how many times she goes, Sweetie is thrilled to be there. She knows the people who work there and runs to them to get belly rubs. She tries to break into the facility to play before we even get a chance to say goodbye and does the same upon pickup. I have never been so confident that we can drop our dog off, and she will be happy, properly trained, and safer than we had ever imagined. The price is affordable as well. I would recommend them to everyone. I know when our vacation arrives, that Sweetie will be also having a great time. I never thought leaving a dog wouldn't give me a sense of guilt. We are considering using them for 1/2 days just for play dates even though we work from home. If I could give the staff more than 5 stars, I would. I'm very grateful to the staff for treating our dog like a member of their family, when she is so absolutely an important member of ours. They even sent videos of her to me when I was stuck in the hospital. You cannot get better than Ruffgers. More...

We love Ruffgers! I take my dog to training here and doggy daycare. I love the service and level of attention my dog receives when here. He knows when we pull in the parking lot and he gets super excited and starts wagging his tail! When I pick him up from daycare he pulls on the leash and doesn't want to leave. I also buy my treats and dog food here and pricing is very reasonable. I highly recommend Ruffgers and have actually referred several of my friends. More...
