Are you going away and would like your pup to have a stay-cay too?
The Ruff Barn is located in Leeming and offers pet boarding services where your pup stays overnight at our place. We take great care to ensure your pups are treated with the utmost care from the time that they arrive at our place to the time that you pick them up!
Unlike traditional boarding facilities, pet boarding offers a more personalized and home-like experience for pets.
We do require all boarding dogs to come in for a temperament trial. You'll drop your dog off for an hour and we can assess his/her behaviour and interaction with other dogs.
Things we would need you to bring for boarding:
Your old shirt or their blankie (so that they can be comforted by your scent)
After which, I will send you an email containing the Pet Boarding Agreement, Owner and Pet Care Information Disclosure, Veterinary Release Form, Owner's Checklist as well as your invoice.

We do fill quickly throughout the year, particularly during peak travel periods such as school holidays and festive periods. So booking is definitely necessary. Last-minute booking (less than a week) would incur a $10 fee. We require a non-refundable and non-transferable 20% deposit to be made within 72 hours after meet and greet. No booking can be confirmed until the required deposit is paid. The balance payment is to be made 48 hours prior to your pet's stay. There will be no refund should there be any cancellation after full payment has been made. No refunds or credits will be offered for early collections.
