Our Mission is to help you and your dog achieve the best relationship possible built through trust, respect and love. We strive to create an environment that will set you and your dog up for success!
While here with us for training camp or boarding, our primary concern is always the safety and happiness of your dog. We pride ourselves on creating a calm, nurturing and happy environment for your dog to master being the best companion for you!
Our pack doesn't begin and end with our dogs....
We believe having a supportive community for the human members of our pack is a vitally important piece to the success of the pack as a whole. We strive to provide you and your dog with an environment you can be supportive by both us and other dog owners. We hope to create an environment for you and your dog to successful and grow in together!
Dogs learn quickly from other dogs around them. While your dog is with us, they will be exercising, learning and playing with a pack of other calm, respectful and happy dogs. We use our pack to help guide each new pack member into a more balanced state of mind, both while they're here and when they come home to you. As a part of our pack, we will be working with you and your dog closely to help maintain all they're learning at home with you.
I am the owner and face behind Ruby's Dog Lodge. I am blessed enough to spend my days guiding, connecting and exploring with my pack of dogs and the people that love them.
I started my business after saying goodbye to my soul dog, Henry, in 2018. Henry was what I call, a once in a lifetime kind of dog. If you've been lucky enough to have had one in your life, you know what I mean. Henry is the face of our logo and the reason behind Dog Lodge's existence. I wanted to give back to other dogs and humans, the way that Henry gave back to me. When he passed, everything changed for me.
After a lot of education and consideration, I decided to leave behind 12 years of bartending experience to open my dog business!
When I opened my business in 2019, my vision was completely different than what you see today. Since then, I have spent most of my time learning from my pack and some of the most talented and caring mentors I could find in the dog training world. I am incredibly grateful for their time and energy spent teaching and guiding me.
The business you see today is built on a deep hunger for more knowledge and ways to help dogs and the people that love them. It's built on hard work and pitfalls along the way. It's built on beautiful connections between humans and dogs. Most importantly, It's built on the connection and relationship i had with ONE dog, my Henry.
