I had go to out of town for 10 days for work. I was very apprehensive about leaving my Golden Retriever, Lily. I have never boarded her anywhere before. My vet recommended Whiskers. I went there for a tour and was impressed by it. It looked and smelled clean and all the dogs seemed very happy. The staff suggested that I bring Lily for daycare a couple of times before leaving her when I took my trip so she would be more comfortable. She seemed happy there and came home tired. I went on my trip still feeling nervous. I called everyday for updates on Lily and the staff was very gracious and told me the details of Lily's day. It made me feel so much better. When I went to pick her up, she was so happy to see me. She greeted me by jumping around, wagging her tail and barking! And then she went back into her suite like she wanted me to join her. It was so cute! I was very happy that Lily was happy and comfortable at Whiskers. I would definately bring her back there if I have to board her again.

I have a high energy dog that I was worried I couldn't keep much longer. Then I found Whiskers. I can take her in for daycare and when I pick her up at night, she's asleep before we get home. She spends all day socializing with other dogs, she is supervised during playtime, and she isn't left in play all day long. She gets a break between playtimes to get her 2nd, 3rd, and 4th winds, and when I pick her up she has just enough energy to make it into the house, and she will spend the rest of the night sleeping. She perks up every time I ask if she wants to got to Whiskers; she knows the route and gets more excited the closer we get. The entire staff know her on sight and she loves to see each of them when we arrive; it feels like leaving her with family. It's a great feeling to know that I can now meet her exercise needs and she is happier because of it. I recommend Whiskers to everyone I know; they've made it possible for me to keep my dog with me and to keep her happy and healthier.
I bring Max to Whiskers three days a week for daycare. He loves playing with his friends. It really tires him out which is great since I work all day. Once a month he gets a "spa day" of playtime with his friends and grooming. He plays all morning and in the afternoon he gets his hair done. When I bring him home, he is tired and beautiful! The groomers always have Max looking super! He smells great too!
