Welcome to Ruff Country Kennel!
Ruff Country Kennel is centrally located in picturesque Nova Scotia, Canada. We're just a half hour drive from the Robert L. Stanfield International Airport and about 30 min from the hub-town of Truro. Our country property meanders along the beautiful Shubenacadie River.
Once a working farm owned by the Rose family in historic Douglas Township (today's East Hants County), Ruff Country today provides the ideal location for a kennel. Plenty of fresh air to romp in and nature all around to watch, winding forest paths and waterways for exercise & training ensure the 'old farm' enjoys an extended life well into the modern age. Farm dogs were some of the very earliest working partners of people as human civilization evolved, and we think there's no better place than a farm for healthy, happy canines.
We maintain garden
beds at the entrance
off Highway 102, and
grow a significant
portion of our produce
out in the field past the
barn, currently using
as a 'greener' way to
crop. The Country Life
is reflected in the care and health of our own dogs and our visitors as well.
