“Until one has loved an animal, a part of one’s soul remains unawakened” ~ Anatole France
Ruff Life Training & Resort is a local, family-run training and boarding business. Our highly-qualified trainers take a unique approach that encourages good behavior and reassures your dog when he/she makes the right choices. We then shower your fur babies with love and positive interactions to reward them for a job well done. The results we achieve are faster, longer lasting and based on setting boundaries that are clearly and easily understood by your four-legged family members. Ruff Life's head trainer, Jennifer Hoover, is Wasatch County's very own dog whisperer.

At Ruff Life Training & Resort, we don't believe in a one-size-fits-all approach when it comes to dog training. That's why we offer customized dog training packages designed around you and your dog. Whether you're looking for some basic doggy etiquette training or need more intense training, we're here to help. Our approach focuses on creating well-behaved dogs who make good choices, rather than obedient dogs who just respond to commands. We can't wait to meet you and your fur babies!
Personalized Private Training
Personalized private training sessions are perfect for any dog that has already trained with us. These training sessions are completely customized for you. We'll address any specific issues that you may have, but generally we'll start with the basics to ensure there are no underlying issues that we need to direct our attention to. We'll then build on those skills to meet your goals. Our focus will be to encourage your dog to be well behaved rather than just obedient using pressure and positive encouragement.

Does your dog need a more focused training program? Leave your furry pal with us for a few days and you'll pick up a brand new pup. Our boarding facility is co-located with our home, providing a family-friendly environment that ensures your fur babies are happy, relaxed and feel right at home. They'll be loved and have loads of fun. Plus, we'll provide 1-on-1 personalized training starting with the basics, where we encourage your dog to be well behaved rather than just obedient using boundaries and positive encouragement. You'll be overjoyed to come home to a dog that makes good choices without you constantly shouting out commands. You'll also be able to follow along with the training through social media videos.

BOARD AND TRAIN
Ruff Life Training & Resort is a locally owned and family-run business, so when you board your fur babies with us, we treat them like family. We provide a structured, fun environment so your dogs will feel right at home, plus your furry pals will receive 1-on-1, personalized training during their stay, if here for training. We'll be sure that your dogs have loads of fun and get lots of love. For best results, we recommend a minimum of 4 days for any of our board and train packages (excluding Sundays). As many dogs are nervous their first time away from home or staying in a strange place, we recommend that you bring your furry family member in for a Play Day to get the jitters out before a time away from their human family.
SUNDAYS ARE FAMILY TIME AT THE HOOVER RESIDENCE AND WE'LL INCLUDE YOUR FURRY KIDS IN ALL THE FUN AND ADVENTURE.
THERE WILL BE NO TRAINING OR LEAVING LESSONS ON SUNDAYS.

Available Add Ons
We all love cooling off with a sweet frozen treat on these hot summer days. Now your fur child can do the same.
Text or call to inquire about the flavor(s) available today.
Separate feeding from sibling
A separate feeding area for those who have multiple furry children who are sharing a suite and love to sleep together; but are unable to eat together either due to food aggression, food sensitivity, or one eating slower than the other.
We will feed each of your fur children in their own space to ensure they eat their food and their food only. Once all of your fur children have finished eating they will be able to be united again in the same kennel to rest or sleep. This add on option should be added for each DAY, not per each meal and only needed for 1 dog (as the other dog will stay in their normal boarding suite).
Brushing Kong-You and your fur child will appreciate the textured nubs to help keep teeth clean, stimulate gums and promote oral health. With the addition of a dental treat inside you will also enjoy the fresher breath.
Does your fur child love being brushed? Do you hate brushing your fur child due to the time it take, or because they don't love you brushing them?
Let us help. We will happily give your fur child a personal 5 min brushing. During which time they will get one on one love and attention from our amazing staff. Brushing your fur child's coat regularly not only keeps their coat looking good, it helps release dead hair, cuts down on excess shedding, removes mats, and distributes the natural oils in the skin to keep your dog healthy.
Extreme Kong- Want to give your fur child some extra stimulation during their afternoon break inside. Let them play with one of Ruff Life’s peanut butter filled Kongs for an added fun treat and stimulation.
