Testimonials

While searching for a doggie daycare and boarding facility for dog, Cleo, my husband came across the Woofdorf-Astoria Dog Hotel & Day Spa website. Based on what he read, he decided to check the facility out.

The Woofdorf-Astoria Dog Hotel & Day Spa was founded by Terry Marcus on November 6, 2006 out of necessity. Terry had eight rescue dogs which needed to be looked after,but all the facilities which were visited emphasized the “caged kennels” philosophy. Knowing this was not the best environment for their dogs, Terry founded the Woofdorf-Astoria Dog Hotel & Day Spa.
The philosophy of Woofdorf-Astoria Dog Hotel & Day Spa is simple.

There are no cages or kennels. There is all day play for boarders and day care dogs. The facility has onsite staff 24/7 including holidays and weekends. The facility includes a 6,500 square foot rubber floored playroom, an acre-and-half fenced dog park and even big screen TV for the dogs to view when they are dog tired. Patrons can see their dog from anywhere in the world over the Internet Live Doggie Cam. The staff includes six employees who are excellent at providing TLC for your dog, as well as providing excellent customer service for dog owners.

Our dog’s experience as Woofdorf-Astoria Dog Hotel & Day Spa has been a positive one. We look forward to continuing our patronage of this business.

I was so worried my little dachshund was going to be overwhelmed and have anxiety when coming here. Turns out he absolutely loved it and got along with the dogs his size! The staff was very friendly and made me feel at ease leaving him there while I was at work. They even let me call during my lunch hour to see how he was doing. (I over react a bit since he is my fur baby). He will now be going at least once a week to get his energy out and socialize! When we got home he went straight to bed and took a nap! I would highly recommend this doggy day care!

We just picked up our Lily from her first groom with Michelle, OMG I started tearing up when I saw how beautiful she looked and how HAPPY Lily was! I was terrified to leave her (I’m one of those fur moms) but I can say with 100% confidence we will be back! It’s worth the extra 20 min drive to Waukegan! We couldn’t be happier with how pretty she looks more importantly to hear she gave Michelle kisses the whole time while being groomed THATS what’s most important to us! Thank you so much!!!
