We specialize in small group play. Reservations are highly recommended.
All new dogs get first 1/2 day for FREE for temperament testing.
You can add an outside walk, training or grooming to their day, too.
We have some great trainers who can work with your pup during daycare, group classes, board & train or private lessons at your home.

A trained dog is a happy dog.
Your pup will stay with one of our sitters in their home with other pups. They will get lots of love and affection as we treat all of our pups as one of our own.
You will get a report card every night with an update & pics about your pup's stay.
We are pleased to offer a few levels of training for your dog with one of our staff trainers.

We keep our playgroups small, so reservations are highly recommended since we have a lot of regulars.
Our daycare groups are separated based on size and temperament. We specialize in small group play and our dogs thrive in that environment. If you become a subscriber, you will get 1-4 pack walks included in your dog's daycare day. Inside & outside daycare is the best!
You will get a report card every daycare day with pics and details on what your dog was up to in playgroup.
Reserve your spot today to join the fun!
David will take a small group of dogs out for a pack walk every afternoon during daycare, M-F. We have very limited space, so please book in advance.
This is an add-on feature to daycare and requires a reservation.
Our trainer will take your pup on a structured walk for 30-60 minutes during daycare.
You can also add a 10 min. outside walk to your pup's daycare day, too. This is with a staff member and is not training.
Jen Klair started Wags & Ruffs in 2018 with one goal in mind - creating a safe & fun place for dogs when they are away from home. She has a life-long love of animals and had a successful pet sitting business for many years when she lived in Tahoe with her husband and family. After running an online retail business for over 15 years, she wanted to return to working with animals and founded Wags & Ruffs in 2018.
At Wags & Ruffs, we love dogs and believe they should be treated like members of the family (yours and ours). While your dog(s) are with us, they will be supervised and loved as one of our own. All of our dog attendants have been trained in dog safety. All Wags & Ruffs staff have a deep love for dogs and are skilled in pack management. Take a look at our Prices page to see all of the extras we offer and don't forget to follow us on Instagram and Facebook - and download our app.
*First Half Day is Free!
We take fun seriously - and safety is always our number one concern. All dogs get a FREE initial half day visit for a temperament test where we will introduce him/her to our dog groups that are always supervised by one of our dog attendants. We cannot allow any dogs to join the Wags & Ruffs group play who are aggressive to dogs or people.
We like to schedule your first free day with our staff trainer to evaluate your dog(s) personality. Please schedule your first free day on Monday-Friday with drop-off between 7am-10am. Please call us to schedule if you can't make it during that time.
*Free first 1/2 day does not apply to out of town visitors
