Southern Rhode Island's first dog daycare and overnight boarding facility with no cages, just fun!

about us

ruff life is a unique, 24-hour-a-day, fun and safe cageless canine environment! Your dog will NEVER be left alone!

At ruff life, we know how rough life can really be. The long work days, business trips and vacations can be difficult for dog owners... and their dogs.

As much as we love our dogs and want to be with them, there are times when it is just not possible. Why not make them happy, even when you can't?

cageless overnight boarding

ruff life is proud to be Rhode Island's first overnight boarding facility with no cages! Yes, all of our boarding dogs sleep together, slumber party style, with a human pack leader! We have lots of comfortable bedding around the room, but most pups choose to join the human pack leader on the king sized Murphy Bed! Please note that because our boarding is so unique, we only offer boarding to our regular daycare dogs.
