Full Service

Whirl Wind Farm is also a full service boarding kennel providing bathing and grooming services, boarding and obedience training all in one convenient place. Whirl Wind farm was established in 1960 by Dr. F.G. Ruder Jr., and is still run by his daughter Anne S. Maxson.

Boarding for Dogs and Cats

Each pet is provided with his or her own “room” with attached outdoor run. We also have several family suites which allow pets who prefer to share a “room” with another family pet to have a little extra space to relax and play in.

We believe in playtime. We can take your dog for a walk on our beautiful grounds. Enjoy peace of mind while your pet enjoys expert care in a bucolic country setting.
