The pet resort boarding facilities are unrivaled by any other kennel. The space they have available to them is tremendous. The pets aren't just cramped in a small cage. Woodland West has doggie play grounds, and social time with people and other animals. The boarding kennels are spacious. The option of live web cameras is a plus. It costs extra, but is available. I thought about just having a friend or family member come by to feed and play with my dog, but there would be too many hours of loneliness doing it that way. If I had more than one dog that might have worked. The care given at Woodland West is very attentive. It was the best choice I could make for pet care while on vacation.
