Our Philosophy

We aim to guide dogs and owners down the path to a better life together and to fundamentally change the perception of dog ownership.

 

In today's society, dogs aren't viewed as just pets, but as family members who live, eat, and sleep under the same roof as us and deserve the same care as any other member of the family. These privileges come with expectations for dogs to behave a certain way so as to not disrupt the family's normal lifestyle. Oftentimes dogs are not given the appropriate tools to uphold these high expectations and end up misbehaving, causing problems for their family as a result. We excel at guiding you and your dog towards a better life by offering a holistic approach towards their care, encompassing balanced training, in-home care, exercise, and nutrition. This means a better quality of life and more manageable behavior for your dog and greater flexibility and convenience in your lifestyle. 

Meet The Trainer

Shilee has a soft spot for animals of all kinds. Before founding RuffLife, she already had a passion for caring for and building relationships with animals. She grew up training horses, competing in rodeo as a barrel racer, and teaching kids how to ride. It wasn't until she met her dog, Koda, that she decided her calling was to help dogs and their owners. Koda was rescued from terrible conditions when he was just five weeks old and suffered from behavioral issues as a result. He inspired Shilee to learn more about canine behavior, which led her to complete a training school, Training Without Conflict with Ivan Balabanov. This school changed the game and has equipped shilee with the knowledge and experience to help owners live their best life with their dogs. In addition to this schooling, Shilee has a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology, and holds the certificates of Pet Food Nutrition Specialist and Raw Pet Food Nutrition Specialist from DNM University,
