Whippet Boarding

We are pleased to offer whippet dog sitting and boarding services while you are away for holidays, business trips etc.

We enjoy having whippet visitors stay with us anywhere from a day to a few weeks. We are non smoking, live on acreage in the lower mainland of BC and have over 2.5 acres fully fenced for the dogs, as well as a small dog yard for puppies. The dogs live inside with us and are part of the family. We are happy to include nail clipping, baths, teeth brushing etc if you desire.

Please contact us at laura@stormholdwhippets.com for details.


“We have had our whippet Morgan cared for by Laura a few times now when we have gone on vacation. When Morgan goes to Laura’s, it is like a vacation for him too. He has plenty of acreage to frolic on and run as fast as he wants, he gets plenty of walks as well and two other whippets to cuddle up and play with. When we go on vacation where we cannot bring our precious family member with us, we can enjoy our time away and not worry about him at all, knowing that he is in good hands and is well cared for by someone who loves and knows whippets inside and out.”

“Marc and Laura from Stormhold Whippets welcomed our two whippets, Milo and Merlin into their home. We were thrilled with the love, care and attention they provided to our two boys. While we were away we got regular email updates about how the boys were doing, including photos of them playing with Tanzy and Smoke. Every day the boys got regular exercise and went out for long walks. The best testimonial of all was that when we came to pick up our dogs, they did not want to leave. We plan to use Stormhold Whippets when we go away again in the future, and we whole heartedly recommend them for others looking for home away from home for their dogs.”

“Our whippet girls Becca and Audrey have taken up residence in the Baratta household on several occasions when I am away from home. It is always obvious they have had an amazing time when I go to pick them up upon my return!! In fact I am thoroughly convinced they enjoy their time there more than the time spent at home!

The dogs are very well cared for and it is obvious they have a lot of fun and exercise and cuddle time. And now with Tristan in residence I know Audrey isn’t pestering Smoke and Tanzy to play – Tristan more than makes up for it!

I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending Stormhold Whippets for anyone who is looking for a caring, safe environment for their dog should they be unable to take their dog along on work or vacation travel.”
