Dogs have been a long-time passion for both Tracy & Erik, therefore in 2003, Ruff Stuff Dog Services was born in order to provide the ultimate dog care services in Vancouver which included dog walking, dog boarding, dog daycare as well as a foster home for dogs in need of a loving forever home.
Ruff Stuff was forced to close down its Vancouver operations in late 2021 due to the building being torn down and redeveloped. Unfortunately we have yet to find a new location that meets our requirements and our budget due to the extremely high rents in Vancouver.
Ruff Stuff Dog Services in beautiful Squamish, B.C. is fully licensed, fully insured and our team are trained in K9 first-aid. We are also a proud member of the IBPSA (International Boarding & Pet Services Association).
We have a fantastic team of handlers that work for us who are all dog lovers, life-long dog guardians and outdoor enthusiasts (rain, shine, sleet or snow)! We love dogs, people and the great outdoors and look forward to meeting you and caring for your dog!

Tracy & Erik, Owners of Ruff Stuff Dog Services.
“We both grew up around dogs and enjoy nothing more than to be surrounded by a few of our K9 friends while we’re hiking up a mountain trail. We firmly believe in the need to be the pack leader to our own dogs Zack, Bree & Benny, and to all the dogs we care for. Dogs are social animals that thrive in a pack setting where the hierarchy is clear, as this promotes harmony within the pack. A pack leader does not exhibit dominance through aggression or bullying but through calm, assertive, consistent leadership.”
