About Ruff Stuff Dog Services Inc.
Ruff Stuff Dog Services was established in 2003. We proudly provide top quality overnight boarding and dog daycare services in a free range setting on the fully fenced 1 acre property where the companies owners Tracy & Erik live with their 4 beautiful dogs. We also provide top quality dog daycare services at our conveniently located facility in East Vancouver. Our Vancouver location also has a boutique where we sell Acana, Orijen and Go! brands of dog and cat food along with a variety of Ruff Stuff approved treats, toys and remedies.
What differentiates us
First and foremost, we have an absolutely amazing team of people that help us give the best care possible to the dogs in our care. Next is how we don't over-fill either of our facilities as this allows us to give each dog the care and attention they deserve and helps to keep them safe and happy. Also, our 2 facilities work together so when our Vancouver clients are going away and need somewhere for their dog to stay they can drop them off at our Vancouver location and we'll take care of transporting their dog up to Squamish where they will stay at our home until it's time to head back to the city to be reunited with their families. The owner's already know many of the Vancouver dog's we care for so when they arrive in Squamish there is a familiar face to greet them and that helps them to settle in really quickly. Many of our Squamish clients also use the Vancouver daycare because of its convenient location and hours.
How we were trained
Over the years we have attended seminars from highly regarded trainers such as Dr. Ian Dunbar, Nicole Wilde and Brenda Aloff to name a few. We've read countless books and worked thousands and thousands of hours hands on with our furry clients and our own dogs. We are continually learning from others in the industry and especially from the dogs themselves!!
Why we love what we do
We get to spend our days caring, cuddling, playing, walking and hanging out with dogs of all shapes, sizes, breeds, ages and energy levels. What's not to LOVE!! Once we gain a dog's trust they have so much love, loyalty and humour to give and share with us every day that they're in our care. We cherish the relationships we build with the dog's and their families and can't imagine doing anything else.

We have boarded our dog here when we go away for holiday. Jordie always comes back happy and healthy.
We were hesitant to board him as he was not very social. The team at Ruff Stuff were patient and kind. He has been there 3 times now! Highly recommended!
I like the people there. Daisy seems very happy to social with other dogs. By the time I picked her up, she was falling asleep right away in the car.
Great! Nika will definitely be returning :)
Rascal always seems very happy to be at Ruff Stuff. It is helping a lot with her socialization with other dogs as well.
