Thank you for your knowledge, love, support and for believing in Ruffgers!

Sue was the first trainer to help Aschley open Ruffgers 10 years ago. Her knowledge of dog behavior and competition sports was a gift.

We know you’ve been training in heaven these past few years, but wanted you to know how much you’re missed ❤️

Our dogs love to be outside and play with friends in the backyard‼️❤️ Don’t worry, we know how hot it can get with the Florida heat! ☀️We let the dogs play and do their business, but once they’re done we will bring them in the AC for some chillaxin 😌 We recommend splash pass 💦 or ice cream 🍦 to stay extra cool! 😎

Kelly will be at Ruffgers tomorrow, June 9th.

Please email [email protected] to save a spot.

Kelly has been a certified Canine Massage Therapist in SWFL for over 15 years. She is honored to provide thereaputic/sports massage and PEMF - Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Therapy for her clients (including horses, dogs, and people!) with one of the most technologically advanced machines on the market! Dogs need and receive the same benefits that a person would get from Massage; relaxation, pain relief, muscle tension relief, improved flexibility & performance, improved immune system, in addition to calming nervous behaviors. PEMF therapy helps at a cellular level. It is a revolutionary drug- free technology which uses a gentle pulsing magnetic field to recharge cells and their ability to heal effectively. When cells are stressed or injured, they lose their charge which results in energy depletion, pain, inflammation, swelling, stiffness, and ultimately illness and disease. PEMF therapy recharges the cells, optimize cell function and restores the body‘s natural healing ability! Not only is PEMF therapy incredibly relaxing, but it usually results in pain relief, faster healing and recovery as well as boosting health and energy. You can schedule a relaxing, and revitalizing PEMF session for you AND your dog at Ruffgers! Come, Sit, Stay....Heal!

The Ruffgers Story

Ruffgers Dog University is Naples’ premier dog training, dog boarding, day care and dog agility facility. Our owners, trainers and behaviorists have extensive experience and knowledge to accommodate you and your puppy or dog’s individual needs. We were just recently voted the Best Doggie Daycare in Collier County by Gulfshore Life Magazine and look forward to you and your pup coming to experience our state-of-the-art facility!

We focus on agility, obedience, tricks and other behavioral training in our classes designed for young puppies all the way to senior dogs. We provide a caring, engaging experience in our residence halls, indoor training rooms and outdoor play areas. Our focus is a fun and welcoming environment to foster enriching play and exercise, learning and love for the “Good Boys” and “Good Girls” in your life. We believe that training can not only breed a well-behaved pet, but a deeper and stronger bond between a dog and its owner.

In 2009, owner Aschley Kezeske moved to Florida from Wisconsin to attend graduate school. She quickly learned she needed to pursue her passion and love for dogs, and moved to Naples, where she began training service dogs and running the agility program for a local trainer. As the program grew, so did Aschley’s passion and reputation in the dog community. In late 2012, Aschley ventured out on her own to realize her dream of developing a premier indoor dog training facility. After extensive renovations and preparations, Ruffgers Dog University was born. In 2017, a second branch was opened in Bonita Springs, to better serve customers in Lee County as well.
