Our Guests Leave Wonderful Messages
Tradewinds has been like a second home for my dog, Lucy. It's never a stressful time for her. She knows when she's going to visit Aunt Sandy and Aunt Alex. In the year I've had her, I've had to spend a considerable amount of time away from home, but I always know that she's well taken care of when I leave her at Tradewinds. I live in Kailua so getting to Wainae is a trek but it's well worth the drive for the peace of mind that's afforded to me every time I take her there.*
I would recommend Tradewinds Pet Suites to anyone who is considering a place to board your dog! Your fur baby will be treated like family!
Words simply cannot describe the loving care that my corgis, Lucy and Lily, receive from Sandy, Alex, and all of the staff at Tradewinds Pet Suites in Waianae. Daily playtime is a must for corgis—and all pets, let's be honest!—and the ENORMOUS play yard is an absolute delight!! Not only do the dogs get to run around on a daily basis, but the staff posts videos and/or pictures of your pet on Facebook three to four times a week, and sometimes daily. All of us know how wonderful it is to see a picture or video of your pet when you are far away.
I appreciate that this kennel requires numerous vaccinations (and that they must be updated each year) as well as the fact that they require your pet to be checked for giardiasis and other intestinal parasites which are easily transferred when pets are sharing a play yard. But what I truly appreciate is the love that is showered on my girls when they stay at Tradewinds Pet Suites. Thanks for providing such a loving environment for all of the dogs that are lucky enough to spend time with you!
I am so last minute with my bookings all the time, and Sandy and her team CONTINUE to find ways to accommodate Koa and me. I cannot speak highly enough of their facilities, their professionals, and most importantly the amount of caring they have for animals. I cannot even count how many times I have used Tradewinds and I will always go back to them for all my boarding needs. Even if you're in Hawaii Kai, the drive is worth the doggie experience. Thank you for everything that you do and everything that you are Tradewinds.
We just can't say enough good things about Sandy, Alex, and everybody at Tradewinds. For many years, they've been the only place we've boarded our dogs. But recently they've gone above and beyond. Daisy and Boogu are both older/elderly dogs now, with significant health issues. Under the circumstances, we could not have entrusted them to anybody else. But Sandy and Alex have provided extraordinary care, treating our dogs like their own, getting us all through a tough situation--and, along they way, they have given our doggies a terrific vacation filled with fun and love. These folks are our family now, our ohana. We hope they know how much we appreciate them and everything they do.
We booked for our two big dogs last Christmas and already have our reservation in place for this year. The staff is wonderful and the dogs have a huge yard area for exercise and play. The sleeping areas are clean and shaded. We will continue to use Tradewinds Pet Suites for all our dog boarding needs.
Lexie and Rothko totally enjoyed themselves. I loved seeing them almost every day on Facebook. I wouldn't be able to travel if my dogs were unhappy with their accommodations! They came home totally relaxed. Tradewinds, we will be back!
This was our first time to board our dog. We like to travel and I'm glad we picked Tradewinds. They were so awesome with our dog and he had so much fun! They have lots of room for him to run around and play and the kennels are nice and kept clean. They have outdoor kennels with individual runways and indoor kennels with AC—that's a plus for our English bulldog, Packer. The staff is nice and friendly while we were on our trip. I was able to go on Facebook and see how he was doing which was a plus. I recommend Tradewinds. If you need to board your pets, they will love it.
I have been using Tradewinds Pet Suites for years! My dogs—past and present—love Sandy and crew. I was very hesitant at first after a bad experience with a different boarding facility, however, my vet recommended Tradewinds. After meeting Sandy and touring the pet hotel, I gave it a try and Baby Girl, Ted E. Bear, and Sarah loved it! They had a great staycation. We have used Tradewinds many times and highly recommend it to anyone who has a need for boarding. Ted and Sarah are looking forward to their summer staycation.
I have been frequenting Tradewinds kennels for the past year and have been continually impressed by the professionalism of the staff. I work a job that tends to either send me out short notice and/or for long periods, which can add stress as a pet owner, however, I’ve been able to count on Tradewinds to have availability for Rocky. Finally, the posting of videos and pictures can help with the stress of being away and getting to see him having fun and enjoying his day.
We love this place! It is spacious and beautifully maintained. Our furbaby loved it. We took our furbaby here when we left for the mainland to see family and felt very comfortable with Sandy and the crew watching him while we were away. They posted videos on Facebook of our furbaby so we could see how he was doing. It hit Christmas morning and we really started missing him but we knew we could check Facebook and see how he was doing later in the day (time difference). I will most definitely be bringing our furbaby here for any future trips we have planned.
Thank you for taking such great care of our baby—and we love the calendar!
