West Wind Stables was absolutely fantastic with my 8month old golden doodle. He’s 65lbs and is a anxious boy. When I picked him up from getting groomed and a getting his nails clipped he was so happy. They truly make their animals feel comfortable.
We are so thankful we have finally found somewhere to not only groom but board our pup.
Thanks again for the excellent service!
I boarded my 2 standard poodles at West Wind and the care they received was great! The facility is new and clean and the staff courteous and knowledgable. I plan to kennel my dogs there again.
Spectacular grounds for your pet's stay. Frequent walks and individualized attention to fit your pet's needs and requests. Flexible pick up and drop off times. The staff loves their patrons!
Great staff!!! It's obvious they have a special place in their heart for dogs They did an excellent job grooming my goldendoodle dogter. I will definitely be returning to WWS when Tessa needs grooming again. Thank you WEST WIND STABLES!!!
5 ⭐️ rating. Our two miniature dachshunds spent the weekend at West Wind Stables kennel. It was an excellent experience. Clean, friendly & caring. A wonderful home - away from home experience for our pets!
What our clients have to say...
There is something uniquely peaceful and serene about being near God’s creation and there's no better way to soak it all in than with your four legged companion. For many people tho, having horses or even a dog is impossible where they live, not to mention that the care their pets need and deserve requires more time than some owners have. West Wind Stables makes it possible...
