We need more room to cater to all of our furry friends.  Our Expansion Project has started and will continue into the fall.  What our expansion will include…..

We are expanding our grooming facility; we have grown out of our current space and decided we need more room to make all of our furry friends beautiful. 

We also are going to make a bigger separate area for our little dogs.  They will now have their own space, with small couches and small toys to play with. 

We are also adding Cat Lodging.  We currently have only catered to our doggie clients, we decided it is time to have a place where “Cat’s Rule the World!”  We will have a social area for the “friendly with other cats,” and each Cat will have their own private condo.

Last but not least, we will soon be offering group dog training classes.  We currently have a dog trainer that does private lesson, but soon she will have an area to do group classes.

We are extremely excited about what’s to come.  During our expansion we will continue to be open for all our current services. 

Any questions, please feel free to call us.. 801-497-WOOF

I lost my furry best friend last week to cancer. ☹ It took her life faster than we all expected. She was my best friend and was there for me through my many life changes. I know all of you dog lovers out there can understand this, Dakota was a very special dog. A dog that held such a special place in my heart that I will never forget her and I will carry her memory with me every day I live.

The best part of Dakota’s life was she inspired me to open Ruffledale. She changed my course of life with her life. I had it all planned out that I would graduate with a BS in Exercise Physiology and find a career using that knowledge…..but Dakota had other plans.

While I was at work she would be at home destroying the interior of the house (yes, she was a very naughty puppy.) She was bored….no longer did I have as much time to spend with her now that I had a “real job.” So that is when the research began. Why not open a fun place to dogs to exercise. I have always been an extreme animal lover, for those that know me, know I can be a little crazy about all the critters that inhabitant this earth. That is when the vision of Ruffledale Pet Resort and Paw Spa was born.

Dakota was there to help me get it started and helped me through figuring it all out. Everyday I will be thankful that I was able to give Dakota a wonderful home for the 10 years she lived.

For those of you that love Ruffledale… Now you know that a dog name Dakota Jane was the one who really we should all give credit too!!

I love you Dakota Jane… I will miss you everyday…I will miss your naughtiness the most… I can’t wait to see you again, I hope you are the first to greet me when I die.

Love your best friend, TeAnna

In Loving Memory….
