Stella Ruffington’s Doggy Daycare: Welcome, new WSB sponsor

Today, we welcome a new WSB sponsor – Stella Ruffington’s Doggy Daycare, serving your canine needs right here in West Seattle! Here’s what they’d like you to know about their business:

Located on California Avenue Southwest, just four blocks south of Morgan Junction, Stella Ruffington’s provides kennel-free dog boarding and day care, full-service grooming, and dog training. Unlike many dog day care and dog-boarding facilities in Seattle, Stella Ruffington’s does not occupy a large warehouse-type space. We are a cozy, indoor/outdoor facility where our canine guests get to mingle and enjoy the kind of freedom that they experience at home. At Stella’s, the environment is entirely kennel-free, not only for day-care guests, but for our overnight boarding guests as well.

While many facilities in Seattle or elsewhere are kennel-free during the day and then routinely confine their guests at night, Stella’s is kennel-free 24/7, and staff always is at hand for your dog’s safety and security. Your dog can curl up on a cozy bed and enjoy the peace of mind of knowing it is not confined even at bed time, but has free run of the room that it shares with its doggie friends and with staff.

Stella Ruffington’s also is excited to provide full grooming services for your canine family member. Michelle Seifert, our new full-time groomer, has trained under two master groomers and possesses more than 10 years of experience as a professional groomer in the Puget Sound area. She provides full cut, comb, and style grooming for every breed and breed type. Additionally, we also provide doggy baths, brush and blow-outs, ear cleaning, nail trimming and many other grooming services.

Find Stella Ruffington’s at 7003 California SW, online at; call 206.932.RUFF. And don’t miss the WSB coupon!

    We love Stella’s, and can attest that the new groomer does an awesome job with our labradoodle. Best grooming ever.

    We LOVE the crew at Stella’s! Our boxer mix is head over heels every day she gets to go here. They take wonderful care of her and I can trust she is being looked after while I am away at work.

    I heartily concur with the above comments; we call it our bichon-poodle mix’s “doggy hotel”.

    I’m the dog-mom of a little guy who can be timid and uncertain with other dogs in new environments. He has stayed at Stella’s a few times and he’s completely chilled out and calm when I pick him up! They seem to know what they’re doing!

Sorry, comment time is over.
