Jodi Woolard, Owner
What led me to open Woods Creek Kennels was the goal and mindset that the dogs always come first. For over 14 years we have succeeded in sending home many happy dogs from Camp and in return I have been very fortunate to spend my days in their company. I want to thank people like you for allowing us to continue to love on and care for your best friend!
Some "About Jodi" facts:
I'm married with one daughter (Tayler). We have 5 dogs (3 German Shorthairs and 2 Siberian Huskies), 2 horses and 2 cats.
*Awarded The Best of Western Washington Winner, 2012
* Certified Veterinary Assistant
* Former Puppy Raiser for CCI (Canine Companions for Independence).
* Snohomish & King County Search and Rescue Volunteer
And last but not least...I am a (very proud) Montana native.
Kelley is our Lead Dog Wrangler aka Chaos Coordinator. Her never ending patience, dedication and genuine love for our camp dogs makes her presence here invaluable.
Not to mention all the dog smooches and love she receives at camp, you could say she's definitely dog tested and dog approved.
Kelley is a native of San Francisco, but came to us after acquiring her Bachelors Degree from WSU (Go Cougs!) in Wildlife Ecology and Conservation with a minor in Forestry.
Just a snippet of her background and extensive experience includes volunteering at an animal rescue center from the 6th grade through high school, then was employed at a dog boarding facility while in college. She also spent a year raising baby monkeys in Arizona for UW, spent another year studying relocated Grizzly Bears in Pullman, WA, and...(as if that wasn't enough) she also spent time in South Africa at Kruger National Park conducting Big Cat research.
Her experience and education with various animals and their behavior is not only diverse and valuable, but obviously demonstrates an honest passion that owners hope for when putting their dog(s) into the care of others.
We adore her and feel fortunate to have her in our pack!
Tayler has been with Woods Creek Kennels since 2015. She is married with a 4 year old son, Behr, who is also my grandson. While she is employed part time at the kennel, she is also enrolled part time in school. She has two dogs; Homer (Siberian Husky, often seen in our photos) and Birdie (GSP). Tayler is very passionate about animals and she has a genuine connection with every dog she cares for. She is also a wedding photographer on the side and has taken some beautiful dog photos that are posted for our customers bi-weekly.
