About us ...
Hi and Welcome!
I am Les McCarthy, owner of Woof on Whidbey, and am thrilled you are here and looking us over!
We have been on the island for almost five years now and I am so glad we're finally able to put our love for and experience with dogs online for you and your furry friends and family members.
We are an online boutique and bakery and an
in-person doggie day care and bed and biscuit on beautiful Whidbey Island in the Puget Sound. If you live here or are coming to visit, we can surely help you out with your pet stay needs.
I've been a pet-mom for over 40 years and definitely fall into the "share-the-bed-and-kiss-on-the-lips" kind of dog caregiver. I have experience with dogs from small to giant breeds (and all in-between) and am especially good with the elderly furry ones and those needing extra care.
My geriatric fur factory is now down to zero of my own as my old pug,Gertie, and my old lady lab, Clara, both passed away last fall. I do see a pug baby in my future - but for the time being I am more than willing and able to wrap your fur baby in lots of love and attention. I'm a seasoned rescue mom and am experienced in special needs, geriatrics, body massage and medication administration. I am caring and passionate about our furry loved ones. Our "facility" is a pet-friendly home with a fenced yard. I lovingly vow to take care of any pet as if it were my very own.
We are perfecting our dog bone recipes (all the neighbor dogs have been our taste-testers!) and will be ready to ship out treats, gifts and baskets starting in the next month or two. Please check our website as we will be adding items. All baked goods are freshly made to order and shipped the next day to anywhere in the U.S.
We would love to answer any questions you have, get an order in the works or get a reservation made for you ... just give us a jingle or email us.
Whether near or far-flung, your furry friends are in for special treats and treatment when they receive goods or have a stay with Woof on Whidbey!
Some of our happy dogs ...
Love letters and tail waggin' reviews ...
Les took excellent care of our lovely gal. She was super communicative and friendly. Most importantly, she truly cares about the needs of each individual dog. We would recommend her to anyone wanting to leave their pup in good company while they explore the island or the Seattle area. Her senior dog Gertie is sweet, too. - Ben and Kim M.
Leslie is a very dedicated and caring individual. She truly enjoys pet companions and will lovingly care for all she comes in contact with. As her veterinarian for several years, she always cared for her own companions to the utmost. She is friendly and compassionate. I would recommend her to anyone looking for pet care. - Dr. J.
Les is a fabulous person & dog sitter. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending her to anyone needing a dog sitter while on Whidbey Island. Emma obviously loved her time with Les & Gertie! There are no words to thank Les enough !!! - Beth C.
