“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.

Our facility is co-located with our home, so your dogs will enjoy that in-home experience, while getting the added excitement of playing with our three young boys.

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 doggie 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!
Whether your furry family member is a precocious puppy, a terrible toddler, or a antagonistic adult dog, our training is a great place to start. Your four-legged pal will learn socialization etiquette alongside other dogs and children. They'll begin to learn leash etiquette, boundaries, and many other important skills. Our focus will be to encourage your dog to be well behaved rather than just obedient. We close the day with a parent review session so that you can reinforce your fur baby's good behaviors when you get home. We'll also send you pictures and updates along with video posts to see how and what your fur child is learning.

Personalized Private Training
Personalized private training sessions are perfect for any dog. When you book a private training session, our trainer may initially work 1-on-1 with your furry family member. Once he/she is getting the hang of things, we'll invite you to join these sessions so that you may reinforce your pet's good behavior in a positive and effective manner. 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.
PERSONALIZED PRIVATE TRAINING
Plus milage at $0.575/mi.
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 traiing. We'll be sure that your dogs have loads of fun and get lots of love. For best results, we recommend a minimum of 3 days for any of our board and train package (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 ON SUNDAYS.

Puppies are absolutely the cutest little critters on the planet, but they can be destructive if all that puppy energy isn't properly channeled. Puppies can also develop some bad habits that become more difficult to modify as time passes.
This class is designed for puppies under 10 months
of age and for smaller breed, well-socialized dogs. We'll teach them the basics like walking on leash,
socialization etiquette and more. You'll also learn how to set boundaries so that your new pup makes better choices. Classes always include play-time, so you fur baby can socialize with his/her furry classmates. When you complete this 6 session program, you'll be on your way to having a well-behaved pup.
