Learn and Play

No Ruff Day is a dedicated training facility with proven 6 week modular training programs for puppies and adult dogs.  We believe that all dogs can be trained using positive and motivational techniques.
We have ABCDT Certified Trainers and are members of the APDT.
At the No Ruff Day Daycare we work to make sure not only that your dog has a great day but that they don't forget to use their manners throughout it. We have small groups of dogs instead of large groups for better interaction and we use play, playtraining, sports and rest to fill their day.  

A Word About NoRuffDay  ​Learn & Play

Chris has grown up with dogs all her life.  The first dog she trained was the family dog Heidi, at the age of 11.  She found it fun just spending her time with her dog and was amazed at all the things Heidi could do.  Originally from Iowa she moved to North Carolina in 1988 and loves calling North Carolina home.  She lives in Willow Spring with her four dogs Summer, Chloe, Marshall and Grace. 
Chris graduated with honors from Animal Behavior College in 2010 and has trained dogs professionally ever since.  Chris is an approved Canine Good Citizen (CGC) evaluator through the AKC and incorporates the AKC Star Puppy program in all of her Puppy 101 classes and she is a member of the Association of Professional Dog Trainers, (APDT).  Chris has fostered and trained dogs for the SPCA, Second Chance and Johnson County Animal Protection League, (JCAPL).  Chris believes that giving back to the pet community is so important because of all she joy receives working within the industry.
Chris believes that the most important part of her profession is to help new and current dog owners to develop a strong and healthy relationship between themselves and their dogs through positive and fun training techniques.
