Testimonials

Breslin absolutely loves going to "school" at Whiskers! We originally started bringing her there as a safe place for her to play while we both worked, but it quickly turned into a place where she loves to go! The staff there is absolutely amazing, and it didn't take long before they were greeting us at the door by name. Breslin gets very excited in the car when we pull into the parking lot, and cannot wait to hop out to go play with her friends! When we toured the facility randomly one night, we were so impressed with the staff's willingness to show us around the building and point out all the accommodations available. The facility was extremely clean, the dogs were very well cared for, and there were no lingering odors in the building. This is one of the cleanest and best cared for animal facilities we have been to. We have no doubts in our minds about the love and care Breslin receives while she is there. The Whiskers staff have undoubtedly made Breslin part of their family and we are so thankful!

Whiskers Pet Resort has been a blessing for my dog Kingsley! He is deaf with separation anxiety, so going to work was almost impossible when he was a puppy. Kingsley now goes to Whiskers 5 days a week and has a blast! I never have to worry if he is having fun or is being cared for because Whiskers staff treats him like he is their own dog! Also, Kingsley comes home exhausted from playing all day which is a plus for me! Whiskers Pet Resort and Spa truly cares about animals and I would not trust anyone else with Kingsley. Thank you for everything you do for my four-legged family member!

I have a wonderful and spoiled Standard Schnauzer, Gigi. She is older (11) and has always suffered from separation anxiety, but finding the right doggie daycare has been hard. We used to live in Lansing, so I'm familiar with several facilities. Gigi also has digestive issues, a lifelong problem.

Whiskers is wonderful! I am so happy we found them. It's a beautiful facility, with caring staff, and I was happy to learn not as expensive as I feared! In fact, with their package deals, they are often the best deal in town! Knowing my dog is well cared for allows me to work without worrying about her and that is priceless.

Gigi is always so happy to go see her friends - dog and people - in the morning, and so excited to tell me about her day when I pick her up! They are good about notifying me when they notice anything amiss with her digestive issues and I appreciate that.

My name is Oscar and I love coming to Whiskers! My daycare begins at 6 am when I give wags and kisses to my people friends at the Resort. On the walk to my room, I give a shout out to all my pals to let them know I am here and the fun is about to begin! My cozy cot and blanket help me settle for nap time until my turn in the play-yards. I particularly appreciate the indoor yards when it's cold or rainy (due to my notable lack of fuzz). On hot summer days, I cool off in the pool with my pals.

I love to "run with the pack" and "get my zoomies out!" I am a bit of a party animal and really have fun at the special events. I am a master of disguise - you may have seen the bat on the Halloween invitation - that's me!!

I usually get picked up at 8 pm, but sometimes I get to slumber party all night. Yummy "tuck-in" treats like peanut-butter stuffed Kongs are my favorite! On special occasions I even get a pedicure - this really is a full-service Resort and Spa!!

In my former life, I chased garbage trucks for treats, but now I have two places to call home. Whiskers really is my second home and I love all my pals (2-legged and 4-legged) that hangout with me at the Resort.

I am a Very Lucky Dog!!! You could be too!

Since we got Mocha, we were looking for a dog daycare where she could socialize and play with other dogs. We found Whiskers and, since day one, the entire staff was really nice, friendly and cordial, and we felt that Mocha would be in good hands. We have been a member for more than 1.5 years and we love it. Every time we drop Mocha off, she is excited to go in and when we pick her up, she is very tired and happy.

This is definitely a place that we highly recommend for anyone who wants a happy and tired dog. Thanks Whiskers!!

I would (and do) highly recommend Whiskers for any of your pet daycare, boarding, grooming or training needs. Ripley is always very excited to see his playmates and the staff at Whiskers. The team is dedicated to interacting with pets and the facility is spotless. We had previously been reluctant to board Ripley, but we do not give it a second thought now; we know he is receiving the attention and care he needs and deserves. Our experience with Whiskers has exceeded all hopes and expectations.

Every Tuesday and Thursday morning I tell my "boys" (Barney and Bubba) they are "going to daycare." They literally sit in front of the back door, waiting for me to get the leashes out and get them in the car. When we get to the intersection of 29th St. and East Beltline, they begin whining, and, by the time we arrive at Whiskers, their tails are in full motion, and they can't wait to get out of the car. Every pet owner wants nothing more than to know their pet feels like they are home - even when they are not. And this is how I feel whenever I leave Barney and Bubba at Whiskers - whether it's a front desk person, the runner who brings my dog to me after a day of play or grooming, or for boarding. I know my dogs are welcome and well cared for. Our groomer, Misty, is the best! She knows the various breeds and what they should look like, and is always available to answer any questions. My dogs always look great thanks to her. And Whiskers University is outstanding. The trainers are able to cue into not only what my dogs need in regard to training, but also into what I, as the owner, need to be more confident and make my dogs successful with obedience. Whiskers isn't just a one-stop shopping experience in pet care. It is a place where pet owners take their pets to be with professionals who seem like family - to you AND your pet!

My "little girl" Maggie, has been coming to Whiskers for the last 3 years. There is no other place I would trust with her. She has experienced daycare, grooming, Whiskers University, and the love and caring of the entire staff. I have been treated with respect, kindness, and professionalism by the entire staff. Whiskers provides a safe, secure, and loving environment, giving me peace of mind when Maggie is in the care of Whiskers.

Cricket always enjoys her time at Whiskers for both daycare & boarding. It is a great way for her to socialize with other dogs in a safe environment. Cricket comes home exhausted after her daycare days. Cricket has been to Puppy class and Agility classes and the trainers are wonderful. The front desk staff are friendly and helpful!

Hi, my name is Ellie Zagel. I have been a loving member of the Whiskers family for 4 years. Today is my birthday and I can't wait to visit Misty, the staff and my furry friends at Whiskers this week. I love Whiskers and how beautiful I look when I am done with a day of play and a day at the Spa!

Whiskers has the most professional groomer, a fantastic suite that I can rest in and all my friends I get to see weekly for a day of fun and play!! They even can let us play indoors when Mother Nature doesn't cooperate. I would never be allowed to go to any other place because my human parents are really picky and they feel I am safe and happy at Whiskers! They are right...

Come join me and be my new friend, I love to play!

Pepper, our almost 2 year old Puggle, loves going to Whiskers. Whether it is for daycare or an overnight visit, he is always excited about his stay. The staff is the best; they are very accommodating and their facility is very clean.
