Welcome to Train & Play at The Ruff House! Train & Play is a unique day training opportunity where your pup will receive two individual 30 minute training sessions during the day while spending the remaining time participating in group play (dog daycare) or completing individual enrichment activities with Ruff House staff.


  Day training is an ideal fit for puppies and young dogs who want to buildup to participating in open group play or dogs who might be having a hard time in daycare or at home due to poor recall, not being crate trained, not responding to handler/owner instructions, poor leash/walking manners, or other unwanted behavior such as jumping on people, rushing doors/gates, not taking treats/food gently, and excessive barking.  Dogs with aggression or behavioral issues are not eligible for day training. Our training methods are built on positive reinforcement, canine confidence building, and owner consistency. After every Train & Play session, you will receive an electronic report detailing how your pup did that day in addition to a verbal report from the trainer who worked with you pup. So much of the training process occurs at home and we want every owner to have the confidence and knowledge to continue reinforcing the work done in Train & Play.


Each six-day package costs $360. Train & Play is available Monday through Thursday only. Dogs must attend no less than every other week and reservations must be made in advance. Space is extremely limited so please speak with a receptionist to schedule your Train & Play dates today!  If you have a specific question about our Train & Play program or wonder if your dog would be a great fit for this training please give our front desk a call at 757-251-0699 or email the Training Staff directly at!
