I love my 1 year old border collie Flye, but there are times that I just can't take her with me on trips. After trying a couple of kennels I just wasn't happy. I wanted someone who would love and care for Flye as much as I do. Whispers Garden is PERFECT! Flye was never alone, there were dogs to play with and Greg cuddled her lots! I could tell he really cared for her. I love the pictures and video he sent and I had not one worry that Flye was unhappy or lonely. I am so grateful to have found Whispers Garden and I know Flye will spend many years going there. Can't thank them enough.

My dog Nash had a wonderful time staying at Greg and Albertos house. The house is set up great for all kinds of dogs. I felt comfortable having Nash stay there especially since I had photos and an update while we were out. I will definitely be sending Nash there again!

This was our first time leaving our dog at Whispers Garden. it was wonderful. Easy to arrange, had a great meet and greet before and drop off and pick up went super smoothly. Pictorial updates are awesome. Our pet was calm and content when we picked her up. It was just like leaving her with family (maybe better!!!).

This is the second time that Alberto and Greg have looked after Bruno and Sasha! The last time was in November 2015 and we raved about them then as well. Quite simply, you could not find a better place for your dog(s). When we arrived this time both Bruno and Sasha could not wait to get into the house and the yard. Alberto and Greg have a way with the dogs that is unbelievably positive and affectionate. The dogs have lots of room to romp and play in the beautiful back yard in addition to hanging out in the house and sleeping where they are the most comfortable.
We really can't say enough good things about everything that Alberto and Greg do for our dogs. Absolutely first rate!! Thanks to you both!!

We had a very good (relaxing) experience boarding our yellow lab at Whispers Garden. Our dog is an older dog with special needs. Alberto and Greg are very well organized and Alberto took fantastic pictures of our lab in the garden. Thank you very much for taking a special care of Tau!

Wow cannot say enough good things about Alberto and Greg! The minute you arrive at their charming home, the energy is warm, welcoming and calm. Our Cooper was immediately at ease, which has never happened before at other dog sitters. They provided fun videos and pictures of Cooper while we were on vacation, so we knew our pup was having a ball. When we picked up our Cooper, Greg provided us with details about Coopers stay, how he got along with the other dogs, what he loved to do, where he slept, he had nothing but loving things to say about our pup. August was a busy month for them, but even so, their home and garden was clean and organized, they took it all in their stride; they clearly love what they do and it shows. We highly recommend them!

I was very grateful that Alberto could take Micky when we had a crisis to deal with. Thanks so much for caring! Whispers Garden will always be his home away from home!
We could't find a better place than Whispers Garden to leave our 12 yr old lab. Our dog stayed here for a couple of times. He loved to play in the garden and enjoyed his daily belly rub. We feel comfortable to leave him during summer vacation only because we know that Alberto takes care of him as an old pal. Thanks so much!

Our dog Henry just completed a stay at Whispers Garden. This was the 1st time he had been separated from us for longer than a day.(just turned 2) I was apprehensive but that disappeared the 1st time we met with Alberto, Gregg and their dogs Whispers and Hugo. They clearly love their dogs and it was so apparent of their love and caring for the pets that were in their care. Henry couldn't believe his eyes when he saw the wonderful park like backyard, not to mention the doggy furniture. We particularly liked the relaxed atmosphere and freedom offered the pets at their home.
Also, its great that there are 2 house dogs so they always provide continuity when return visits are made.
Henry was glad to see us - but I think that's worn off and he's wishing he was back at Whispers Garden...
We now feel that we could leave Henry for any length of time and he would be loved and in caring hands.
Talk about a dream dogvacay!!!

Finally we have found the perfect place for Gobbles to stay! What a friendly home, with a huge play area, absolutely perfect for dogs. I couldn't imagine a better spot for my little Beagle to enjoy himself while we're away. I'll absolutely be coming back!

We can't say enough about Greg and Alberto as hosts. The word 'exceptional' comes close.

Whisper's Garden provided:
-Outstanding communication
-A beautiful, welcoming home, yard and garden
-Top-notch loving and attentive care.

We are so grateful for the care our dogs received (and the peace of mind it provided!) and would choose Whisper's Garden again in a heartbeat.

Greg & Alberto did an outstanding job with our dogs, Molly & Hailey. If you're looking for a wonderful home to bring your dogs to, so you can have peace of mind while you're gone, then you've found it here. We already booked our next trip with Greg & Alberto to ensure our girls get to stay with them again. Highly recommended!!!

Alberto & Greg were fantastic with Quincey. Cuddles all the time. Quincy had a blast Great people would certainly use them again. Very accommodating.
Very happy with our pets stay at whispers Garden. First time for our pet to be away from us and Alberto and Greg were awesome, they sent me daily pictures and little updates on Bandit , allowing me to enjoy my holidays knowing how he was doing. Great place . Definitely bringing Bandit back for more stays.

We booked our sheltie Jasper with Al and Greg as a trial stay. Jasper is a recent rescue and has some separation anxiety issues. The "meet and greet" went very well and so did the stay. We love the house and the grounds, and Jasper apparently had a great time playing with the other dogs. No issues at all. It's obvious Al and Greg love taking care of dogs and they are both experienced and knowledgeable. We can say without hesitation this is a wonderful home-away-from-home for your dog.

My American Eskimo had a blast at Alberto and Greg's place. They really took care of him and kept me updated during and after the vacation. 10/10 - will stay again.
These people are the best. They care about your dog deeply and want to be sure everything is as it should be. We have never had better care providers. They are excellent to the last detail. Thanks so much. Ruby had a great time.
Whispers Garden is simply the best place to leave your dog! We were extremely impressed with Alberto's house and huge back yard where the dogs roam and play...the whole place is doggie heaven! Alberto and Greg are absolute dog lovers who treat your dog with such affection! We really can't say enough positive things about them!

We have already booked another stay for our dog and will continue to use Whispers Garden as our dog sitters. It's is such a relief to know that our dog is happy, has other dogs to play with, is given love and affection, and is having fun while we are away!

We highly recommend them!

This is our first time boarding our princess at Whispers Garden. Tobi had a wonderful time at Whispers Garden. Al and Greg attention to details, level of care and regular pictures with updates had gave us a worry free vacation for 3 weeks. The wonderful big yard is ideal for our active golden retriever and their residence dog Whisper and Huggo are instant friend with Tobi.

Thank you so much for taking great care of Tobi, we sure will be back!

Greg & Alberto are just amazing and genuinely love & care so much for dogs. Their huge garden is an ideal playground and it even has a forest trail on one side. Our dogs looked like they just loved it from all the updates and photos that we got! We can finally feel comfortable about going away as they were well taken care of, above and beyond our expectations. We are so glad to have found them!

Alberto and Greg did such an amazing job of looking after our dog, Finn. They were very attentive to his needs and provided a family setting for him while we were away. Thank you very much guys!
They were absolutely the best sitters. They love dogs with all their heart's and I highly recommend them again. Thanks for the awesome care u took of my poochy!!!
I can't say enough about Alberto and Greg. Our dog Max absolutely loves being there. He goes crazy the moment he sees the house and he does laps around their backyard for his entire stay. I wouldn't trust anyone else with Max and am thrilled to have them to care for him when we are out of town.

Jasper had a great time at Whispers Garden, we highly recommend Alberto.
I came across Dogvacay on a Google search. Initially I was worried about leaving my puppy with strangers I found on the Internet, but Al and Greg were incredible. They were very prompt in coordinating a meet and greet and we were very impressed from the moment we met them. They are so kind, patient, and loving of all the dogs in their care. They clearly adore dogs. Their house is impeccable and the yard is an oasis for dogs. We left our dog for a week and we were very pleased to receive about 100 photo updates throughout the stay. We could tell she was happy, well exercised and having the time of her life. When we first got our puppy, I'd thought I'd never be able to leave her with anyone, but now I am so happy to have found Greg and Al and will be using them to care for our dog again in the future. She was even ready to come home all cleaned up and brushed up! I highly recommend Whispers Garden!

Both Alberto and Greg are awesome people. We left our 4 month old Akita puppy for a few days with them, and have already decided to leave her with them for another 2 weeks over March break! They both are very very nice and goes through patiently with any questions you have and take care of your dog as you wish. They have a great and friendly bearded collie and a cute pup Huggo. An ginormous backyard for the dogs to have fun all day long. Right from the beginning we could tell that both of them are definitely experienced with dogs and love dogs with all their heart. The most important part that absolutely fascinated me was how clean their home was. For sure they are the best sitters you can find out there!

We left our 1 year old lab with Alberto and Greg for a week, it was the best stay he's ever had! So much fun, so much outside time, and very nice pictures posted almost everyday. Duke will love to go back!
This was our first time using DogVacay and we weren't sure what to expect when booking last minute, but Alberto and Greg were awesome! Alberto was quick to respond to our initial inquiry and was very flexible and accommodating to our drop off request. We have a Yorkie and a Maltese that can both be very shy. Alberto took great care of our little ones and sent us several updates with photos on how they were doing. It was evident that he was very happy with them. When I picked up the little ones they were not even in a hurry to get home! I know they were very happy with their stayover.We'll be happy to book with Alberto again!

Our first experience with Alberto & Greg was awesome !!!

We strongly recommend those two amazing guys to every pet owner :)

We felt that our dog had the best time ever.
They treated him like a family member.

We can say for sure that our dog received plenty of care & affection.

They do this with love and it shows.

Another great thing, they have a huge backyard
where dog's are invited to run & play (always with supervision).

All along the stay, they provided us with info & pictures of our baby.

We felt really good knowing that he was in good hands.

We will renew this amazing experience :D

D'Artagnan had a fantastic time with Alberto & Greg!! Not sure he wanted to come home after being with them for so many days!

Great care was given and the updates were awesome. Looking forward to booking again soon as I know D'Artagnan will extremely well cared for.

Thank you both!

Alberto and Greg were unbelievably good from start to finish. They have such an obvious love of animals and they treat your dogs as a member of the family. They get lots of attention and play time. The large piece of property is a dog's paradise and the spacious house is set up so that the dogs are able to sleep, eat and rest wherever they are comfortable. Alberto is a wonderful photographer and sent beautiful photos of Bruno and Sasha at play and at rest. In addition to the photos that we received Alberto also included a very thoughtful email with each group of photos.
Quite honestly, I cannot say enough good things about the experience. Whenever we leave Bruno and Sasha behind in the future we know that they will be in the warm, caring hands of Alberto and Greg.

Our dog stays at Whispers Garden when we go away and we are very happy to have found this Oasis for him. The hosts take great care of him and he loves to roam and play in their beautiful garden.
Ripley had a wonderful time at Whispers Garden. She felt very comfortable with Alberto and Greg, so did we. The pictures they took of her are some of the best pictures of her ever. Thank you so much, Alberto! Ripley is already looking forward to her next stay in November.

It was the first time we left our Mia with anyone but family. When she was dropped off I was told by my son and his girlfriend she seemed very happy, having other dogs around. She was very content and happy staying with Alberto ( I think she was a little sad leaving them to be honest). I would highly recommend Alberto as he really pays attention to each dog and gave us a few tips about Mia.

Thanks for taking such good care of our girl!

Alberto is great! We were looking for a last minute sitter for our 10 yr old lab and Alberto was more than happy to look after him. It's a wonderful experience from start to finish. Our dog seemed to really like his stay at Whisper. We would definitely come back again in the future and suggest Whisper to any friends and family looking for a responsible dog sitter!

Can't say enough good things about the wonderful vacation Cassie had at Alberto's house. I didn't worry about her at all knowing that she was in such good hands and I don't think she really wanted to come home! She was so happy having that lovely garden to run and roam in.
I heartily recommend. Thank you both.

We looked far and wide, including every kennel in the area, for the perfect spot for your rescue dogs. We were very nervous about leaving them for the first time, but from the first minute at the meet-and-greet we knew they were in amazing hands with Alberto. The property is amazing, our dogs love to run and I've never seen them so tired and content as they were when they got home. The picture updates were an awesome touch, seeing how happy they were the whole time. We will definitely use Alberto again and again.

Alberto was extremely caring and we were very happy to leave our dog with him. We have never left him anywhere before so were of course worried about having to leave him for 2 weeks. We had no cause for concern about leaving him at Whispers Garden. We had many photo updates and the hosts went above and beyond in caring for him. Anytime we have to go away again, Max will be visiting Whispers Garden and I know he can't wait, he already misses them.....

We couldn't have found a better vacay spot for Astro. Alberto and Greg were amazing hosts and treated Astro like one of their own☺️. He got lots of love, exercise and 4 legged friends to hang with. We would definately take Astro there again.
If you are nervous to leave your dog with someone, or are looking for someone to love your pet like you do then you have come to the right place! I have left Cooper with other people before but, never have I felt so incredibly comfortable! From the moment Cooper and I arrived at Whispers Garden I knew I choose the right place. Cooper didn't even care that I was leaving him, he was so excited to meet new doggy friends and run around the MASSIVE fenced in backyard Whispers has to offer.

Throughout Coopers 18 day stay I was continuously reassured and comforted with countless pictures every 3 days! It was like Cooper was on his own Vacation! Playing with all the other dogs, running around, hanging out on the couch, or even stealing part of the bed in the middle of the night :) He had a blast!

I can't explain how over the moon I am about my experience with Whispers Garden! It meant a lot to me that they took their time to show me Cooper was beyond comfortable and a happy pup.

I highly recommend Whispers Garden to all doggy parents who are looking for someone who will show your dog a tremendous amount of love !

Thank you guys SO much again! :)
