They are always so welcoming and friendly, a really wonderful family team. Bella, our boxer, looks so well and happy when we arrive to collect her. We are content to leave her knowing she is so well looked after.

I have used Whitley Crest for several years and wouldn't take my dogs anywhere else. They care for my 2 beloved Boxers as if they were their own. My boys always return looking fit, well and happy. Nothing is too much trouble and I know that if I leave specific instructions they will be followed.

My two girls love coming with me to work at Whitley Crest. I know I may be biased but this is truly coming from my dogs' mouths... woof! woof! Luna and Kia fly into the car in the morning to start their daily fun & have their mischief moments. They love the company of all their doggie friends and the yummy treats from the staff. It's great to be able to take my dogs to work. Whitley Crest is fab!

They've looked after our dogs for a number of years now - we know that when we leave them there they are in safe and caring hands. Would recommend Whitley Crest to anyone looking for boarding kennels.

My dog has been going to Whitley Crest since he was a puppy - now he's a very big boy (and his friend goes with him!) The girls at Whitley Crest take such good care of them both and I can rest assured that they are in good hands.The kennels are clean, the dogs well cared for and the staff are always welcoming and friendly.

I love that my dogs come here at least once a year for a two week period and leave just as happy as when they arrived. They are clearly well looked after and treated with love and care just like they would be at home. I love that the staff are always friendly, and the dogs start their holiday with a friendly face that they recognize from the last time they were there.

We have been using Whitley Crest for the past 7 years for our precious cat Suzy. We wouldn't dream of taking her anywhere else. All the staff are lovely; they are considerate, friendly and very caring. They look after pets as if they were their own. We would not hesitate in recommending them.

When our dog was alive I always used Whitley Crest and would go to no other. 6 months ago we adopted a cat who had been living as a stray and we were very worried about leaving her because she is so nervous. But the girls at Whitley kept us updated throughout our hols with pics and info on Daisy via Facebook, which we thought was great and it was lovely to see how she had settled in. I cannot thank the girls enough for the care they have given Daisy.

Skully has just been in the kennels for a few days. He came out smelling like a girl with his tail wagging! It's not a kennel to him - it's a holiday home. The girls are great and he loves them.

I left my Shitzhu D'arcy at the kennels whilst I went on hols for two weeks. I had never left her before but was reassured when I met the staff at Whitley Crest. I needn't have worried; she had been so well looked after and I would certainly leave her there again.

Whitley Crest is the only cattery good enough for my cat Moo-Moo. I live in Birmingham and when I take Moo-Moo to the cattery it's a round trip of approx. 100 miles for me. Why do I do it? Because Whitley Crest and ITS STAFF ARE THE BEST. Moo gets cuddles and a brush every day, the accommodation is great. I wouldn't mind staying there myself, if they would have me. Moo stays there about 5 or 6 times a year and he always comes back home happy and contented. Thank you, Whitley Crest. [From Moo and his servant.]

Whitley Crest is the best boarding kennels my dog has ever been to. They looked after her so well, she was happy and fit, and she had a bath before she came home. I would recommend them to anyone.

Peter, our Cocker Spaniel, has been cared for at Whitley Crest for the past nine years - since he was a puppy. He is contented there and is always well looked after by the friendly, competent staff.
