Patrick, Mary & John

Patrick & Mary

Patrick Kenkel, Whole Dogz Manager/Owner, has always had dogs in his life. He begged for a dog while away at college in California (Halle Berry now serves as the Whole Dogz official greeter!) and has cared for many neighbor/friend/referred dogs as a pet sitter. He has volunteered with animal shelters and managed a local doggie daycare. He has a special way with dogs -- no dog is too big a challenge for his large heart. 

His mom, Mary Kenkel, wanted Patrick to be able to live his dream of working with and caring for dogs. So she and her partner, John, pooled their funds and brought everyone's vision of 
Whole Dogz to reality. Here, we provide dogs with a safe and non-toxic place for doggie daycare where pups can play in large indoor/outdoor facilities, adorable suites for overnight boarding providing a place to relax while their owners are away for a day or for an extended period of time.  

Patrick has extensive experience as a manager of dog daycares in the Alexandria area. Mary has a day job as a consultant and John flies to Houston every week for his day job! Each of us brings a special aspect to the business to ensure that Whole Dogz is a success: a place 
where your dog is the center of attention and comes back home happy, nourished and exercised.  


Whole Dogz in Alexandria, here to serve you and your fur babies! 

What a beautiful world it would be

if people had hearts like dogs.
