Ron and Aschley Kezeske grew up in Stevens Point, Wisconsin. Ironically, their relationship began about the
same time as Aschley’s passion and love for dogs began; in 2001, when they were both in the 8th grade. It was then that Aschley was introduced to her first pet border collie, Blackberry (aka Bear).
The dynamic duo competed in agility together, achieving the highest American Kennel Club rank of a Master in Agility Champion (MAC). In 2009 Ron and Aschley relocated to Naples to further their education. Aschley began
working as a trainer, and quickly outgrew the backyard training area she was working with. The two realized a larger indoor space was needed to maintain the class sizes and growth. Their facility, Ruffgers Dog University, opened in 2013 as Naples’ premier indoor dog training facility at a whopping 5000 square feet.
That facility successfully ran through 2015, when the remaining 5000 square feet of the building was offered to the couple for expansion. On January 4th, 2016, Ruffgers opened its doors to an expanded 10,000 square feet indoor, 8,000 square feet fenced outdoor, training, boarding, daycare and retail facility; all located conveniently on Davis Blvd. near Highway 41. Ruffgers prides itself on offering the highest level of care for your four-footed friends, straying from the traditional “kennels” by providing an “at home” environment for your pets, all with
In January of this year, the Ron and Aschley celebrated the two-year anniversary of the expansion with their clients and guests. They now employ more than a dozen individuals and opened their second campus in Bonita Springs last November. Why choose Ruffgers? That question is best answered by one of their clients, when she said, “It’s not about business at Ruffgers, it’s about the dogs and making sure they are happy and well taken care of.” Ron and Aschley’s commitment to the community is evident. Both contribute time and resources to various organizations throughout Collier County. This is one company and couple you will surely continue to hear about.
