The Ruff House philosophy is that a well-trained, well-informed owner makes for a good dog that can be welcomed anywhere. We focus on teaching understanding of the canine mind and the skills to achieve success when training your dog.

Commitment, consistency and patience are key.

We believe that as we live, we learn. Our own education continues with attendance and participation at events and seminars. There is no one who knows it all. We continually add to our pool of knowledge to benefit our clients and their canine companions.

If a dog is well-behaved and the family can have fun with their dog, it is far more likely to live a happy life enriching the lives of the people who love it.
