I would say Driftwood is a good kennel. My dog is not too thrilled when we show up but it's understandable as we are leaving him for a few days. The pricing is below average for the area which is good. They offer a bath before pickup which I recommend as my doggo smelled like pee.

Very friendly staff that is always welcoming and remembers us and our dogs. I have toured the facilities - without an appointment - and the dog runs /kennels are clean and spacious. They take special care and are always friendly.

I have been to Driftwood many times. Mostly for kenneling. But this week I had to put my 16.5 yr old cat. I took her remains to Driftwood for cremation. In 2 days I picked up her urn. A beautiful box with her name on it. There facility is beautiful and the staff so comforting. And their price, the lowest in our area. Much lower than the vets. If you are riding on Laurel Rd, just look at the facility. Amazing people and staff.

This place is awesome!! The staff is so friendly, they go out of the way to accommodate dogs with special needs (such as medication) and made me feel that my dogs were going to be safe and well cared for. I would highly recommend this Kennel to anyone, especially people who are hesitant in leaving their dogs with "just anyone". I give them 5 stars and will continue to take my dogs there.

I brought my dog in to be cremated & they could not have been nicer. Thanks so much for taking care of my baby.

We have boarded our dog Kimber there a number of times and have been completely satisfied. The staff is very pleasant. Kimber has been going there this week for daycare as we are having the interior of our house painted and it is working extremely well. She is all signed up to be boarded a couple of times the next couple of months.

I have lost three corgis somewhat unexpectedly and I have always brought them here. They are extremely sympathetic and kind, always letting me have plently of private time with my dearly departed. I highly recommend them to anyone who has lost a pet. I also find them to be somewhat less expensive and with a better experience. Their beautiful boxes are better than any other place I have seen.

Our dog loves Driftwood. When we get there she heads right for the door and then immediately back to where the kennels are. I can't think of a better recommendation. Our cat also seems to like it, but you know how they are!

Staff are awesome here. We took our dog's here for a couple of days visits just to see how things would go and they did so good that we definitely decided to bring them back to stay over for a few days as the dogs did great there and so were the staff. I DO highly recommend them. You will be impressed by how clean they keep this place. Just ask for a tour. We've been to a few around Venice and throughout our travels and Driftwood Kennels is the best.

This place definitely exceeded my expectations! It is a relatively small place with nice runs. We boarded our 2 special needs dogs there and the gals, Rita, Danielle and others, were absolutely great! They were organized and took care of the dogs and their medicines, and when I called to ask about them, they always knew how they were doing, if they ate, etc.

I take my Conure Parrot to Driftwood, and the caring staff take such great care of him. I love that there are other birds with him, in the birdy section.
