The Canine Good Citizen Program teaches good manners to dogs and responsible dog ownership to their owners. The 10-step CGC test is a non-competitive test for all dogs, including purebreds and mixed breeds. It is a prerequisite for many therapy dog groups and some homeowner’s insurance companies encourage CGC testing. There is also an increasing number of apartments and condos that require resident dogs to pass the CGC test.
We believe that responsible dog ownership is a key part of the CGC concept and by signing the pledge, owners agree to take care of their dog’s health needs, safety, exercise, training, and quality of life. Owners also agree to show responsibility by doing things such as cleaning up after their dogs in public places and never letting dogs infringe on the rights of others.
All dogs must have completed Basic Obedience and be calm in a group situation.

I can't say enough good things about Ruff Day Resort! The staff is fantastic and
and my dog loves going to daycare now! I have peace of mind knowing she is in a great

long day of playing!

My yorkie-poo adores her time at Ruff Day Resort. She starts barking as soon as we get to
the parking lot because she can't wait to see her 4-legged and 2-legged friends! The
entire staff cares so much and takes wonderful care of my girl!

Both of our rescues needed training and there is no one else we would consider using than
Amy and Ruff Day Resort. Their only focus is the well being of the animals entrusted to

My dog means everything to me, so when looking for a doggy daycare and boarding place I
was very hesitant. But Amy was truly amazing from the second I met her! My dog loves
doggy daycare and was completely exhausted afterwards! I will forever go to Ruff Days!!
Thank you Amy and staff!!
Amy is amazing! She's got incredible insight into the needs of individual dogs and
families. By following her suggestions (and sticking to it!) we've seen results with our dog
that no other trainer could help us achieve! Any facility under her leadership will
