Take a look at what some of our customers have to say!

First time here for us. My pup was going through orientation and it was fantastic! The staff was extremely helpful and professional. I was also able to see them interact with my pup on camera from home. The feedback they provided was appreciated and I cannot say enough good things about the staff. Will 100% be a repeat customer.

These wonderful professionals expertly groomed Macy, my flat coated retriever today. I am 110% pleased with their service. Macy looks great, smells great and has displayed her great looks since coming home. Macy, who can be snobbish, had great interaction with her new friends - her groomers! Thank you!

I'm new to Winston–Salem and was looking for boarding for my 1-year old pup. I was impressed by their professionalism and service from the very first interaction. I felt so relieved and secure knowing that our puppy was in good care––and having tons of fun! –– while we were out of town with friends. In fact, our friends (who live in another state) asked me to forward the "daily report card" we received so they could show it to their boarding place and ask for a similar service! I will definitely use Ruff Housing services in the future. Very friendly and helpful staff, clean and safe environment.

I'm very impressed with the great people working at Ruff Housing! They truly show love for the animals under their care. I recently took my dog to get groomed and the customer service was amazing. They called us to confirm what style of cut we wanted and they took their time so my dog wouldn't feel overwhelmed by the grooming process. I've taken my dog to other places and they always cut the hair way too short and don't even try to remove the knots on his fur. Ruff Housing has raised the bar for me on what a grooming service should be. I will definitely take my dog back in the future.

Ruff Housing is a friendly and safe environment to leave your dog overnight or have them play during the day! The staff is so caring and quickly learns your dog's name and likes and dislikes. When we have to leave our loved ones for an extended amount of time, Ruff Housing is the place to do it!

My boys just LOVE all the staff at Ruff Housing as well as their 4 legged friends! I have utilized day care, lodging, and grooming and all of my experiences have been fantastic!

This is undoubtedly the best grooming service I have ever had the pleasure of using and Kansas, my Giant Schnauzer thinks so as well. I have used grooming and boarding services in Knoxville, TN, Chico, Sacramento, San Diego and San Francisco CA. Ruff Housing is second to none.

We feel very secure when we leave Bailey at Ruff Housing, many of the staff know him when he walks in the door. The staff is caring, experienced, and courteous. We often feel like we're leaving him with a relative.

I cannot begin to express how thankful and appreciative I am for Ruff Housing – Witt Street. I searched for quite some time for a boarding/doggy daycare facility that could accommodate my labradoodle who really struggles being away from me. They have been PHENOMENAL. For a dog that used to get physically sick every time he was away from me, he gets so excited as soon as we pull into the Ruff Housing parking lot. The staff are wonderful and provide my pup with a safe, comfortable, and engaging environment. 10/10 would recommend.

Safety is my #1 concern with my two Goldendoodles. I know when I take them to Ruff Housing for Daycare or Grooming, they are supervised and safe!
