Daycare and Boarding


All-day open play at our newly renovated, interactive, climate-controlled facility.  Separate play zones for every dog’s personality.  A midday walk through Historic Old City. 

Conveniently located in Old City, Philadelphia, The Ruff Life offers daycare from 7am to 7pm.  Whether you’re at work, school, or just away for the day, we provide your pup a great day out.  Once you’ve registered your dog with The Ruff Life pack, using our services is a breeze.  Drop-off and pick-up are easy, no advanced scheduling needed (but appreciated), and payments can be made over the phone, or in person.

Our separate play zones are based on each day’s specific needs.  Regardless if your dog is 9 lbs or 90 lbs, a puppy or a senior citizen, a top dog or a wallflower, we make sure your dog is with similar or complementary pack members. Both play areas have plenty of comforts including fresh water, beds, mats, and perches.  Your pup is sure to come home both mentally and physically rejuvenated.

We know that your dog is a part of the family.  Take comfort in knowing your dog is in good hands with The Ruff Life staff.  There’s even extra peace of mind (and a bit of entertainment) with our easy to view webcams.


Only available for Ruff Life Regulars! Offering overnight care throughout the week! With comfortable suites that feel like home.  Upon check-in, your dog will participate in daycare activities, and be shown to his or her suite for the night.  Due to limited availability, overnight lodging is reserved for regular daycare clients.  First come first serve weekend overnights will go home with our employees. 

Overnight Lodging provides your pup a place to stay, play, and relax while you’re away.  Whether you’re traveling for business or pleasure, your dog is sure to have a good time. At night, your dog will receive dinner and a walk just as he would at home.  Then it’s rest time where your pup will be tucked in to his or her own premiere suite. In the morning, your pup will get breakfast and a morning walk. 

Professional, insured care takers make sure your dog has a vacation as great as yours!
