Taking care of your pet is a family affair.

A little about us...

At Ruff Life Training & Resort, we welcome your pet into our home, where they instantly become part of our family. Scott and I have Four boys — Ollie, Vance, Boone, and Davian --- plus two fun Dalmations Bubbles and Guppy. Together, we enjoy all the furry friends that come to stay with us. We create an environment that encourages your pet

to thrive regardless of the circumstance. They'll learn to handle the chaos that

often occurs in daily life and that can sometimes trigger our four-legged friends to

get overly excited or become anxious. Our approach to training will help your pets understand that there are times to be energetic and play as well as times to relax and be carefree. We provide a comforting and safe place, where your pets can come and be themselves, let loose and enjoy their surroundings.

Hi! I'm Jennifer

I founded Ruff Life Training & Resort with my husband, Scott. I was raised in the south and always had lots of pets. When I was a little girl, I thought that I could understand what my pets were saying to each other. What I later realized was that I had a knack for understanding the social cues that animals give when they interact with people and each other. I began training Mosby, 

our black Vizsla/Labrador mix, more than 

eleven years ago. Through the years, we have learned and grown together. Like many animal trainers, I thought obedience was key, but he taught me that he could behave well on his own

if I showed him the appropriate boundaries. I use this non-fear-based approach with all my furry clients, coupled with lots of love and recognition for a job well-done. The dogs I work with choose to be well-behaved, which is a win-win for everyone. I studied Sociology and Animal Training at Utah State University and have been working to build and improve the relationship between

people and animals for 14 years. I'd love to meet you and your furry friend!

Hi! I'm Scott

Who doesn't LOVE to have a GOOD TIME.  I love pushing personal limitations, growing, strenghen, and trying new things to better myself and those around me.  Here at Ruff LIfe i strive to create FUN PLAYFUL spaces for all of us two and four legged adventurers can enjoy.

  Taking our playful history in the Recreational Guiding industry and helping create activities that pushed peoples limits and helped them exceed their own expectations,  and applying it to our play yards we have created some fun and exciting new spaces for all of us to enjoy.

  Through Play / Physical Exercise, and Training / Mental Exercise we, along with our four legged family members, can enjoy better our time together while expanding our possibilities.  I get to speak with and help lots of people that would like to enhance thier expectations and possibilities with their four legged companions. It's awesome when we can learn and grow and help each other achieve what we though impossible and do Amazing things together!
