I think dogs are the most amazing creatures; they give unconditional love. For me they are the role model for being alive.
There is a need for a facility that caters to the wants and needs of not just dog parents, but DOGS! Our highest goal is to create an environment that facilitates HAPPY, HEALTHY, and SAFE dogs, by building into our model of care, attention, affection and mental and physical enrichment. We hope to create a haven, ensuring both dogs and their parents always feel confident they will be exceptionally well cared for and genuinely LOVED, with no worries or stress. Client-centric service (both dog and parent) is our top priority.
Lucky Dog Resort Inc. is THE luxury overnight dog boarding and daycare facility in Middletown Rhode Island, servicing Aquidneck Island and beyond.
Resort Operations Manager Jade is a second year Veterinary Student with a big heart and big dreams of wildlife rehabilitation and research. She has been involved with Dog Training and Dog Sports such as Agility and Fly-Ball for years. Currently she has four dogs, a cat, a pot-bellied pig and a 7 year old Son. When not surrounded by animals, you can find her on the track with Providence Roller Derby’s Mob Squad.
President/Owner Laurie Ruttenberg is the ultimate animal lover. She has spent a lifetime caring for animals and currently has a menagerie of beautiful beasts (dogs, horses, cats, a bird and a 13 year old Son). She has extensive training and experience in animal care (behavior, obedience, daycare management, Pet First Aid and CPR Certification). She is active with animal care organizations whose missions are to provide education, training and certification for animal care givers (Professional Animal Care Certification Council, PACCC, and the International Boarding and Pet Services Association, IBPSA). Laurie spent the first half of her professional life as a healthcare executive with a Fortune 500 company, and will spend the next half spreading her wings doing what she was put here to do, love and care for animals. Lucky Dog Resort Inc. is the culmination of a childhood dream that never died, hardcore determination, decades of business experience, and the call of the wild.
