Standard Day Example:

At Ruffin Inn, we follow a daily schedule that is designed to provide a sense of routine, fun, and security for our fur babies. The schedule below outlines a typical day from a dog’s perspective (cats follow a similar routine, but without group play):

  • 6:30AM: Morning potty break followed by breakfast
  • 8:00AM: Playtime with dog friends
  • 11:00AM: Lunch (if applicable), nap time, and rest before afternoon playtime
  • 12:00PM: Quiet time while humans take a break
  • 2:00PM: Playtime resumes
  • 4:00PM: Dinner
  • 4:45PM: Final play session of the day
  • 5:30PM: Return to room for cleaning
  • 6:00PM: Time to relax and enjoy some peace and quiet (but we still love our humans for all the fun, photos, food, and treats they give us!)
  • 8-9PM: Evening letout for one last break
