We're moving to the Heart of Tehachapi at the end of this month!

After five years in our downtown location, an opportunity has come up for us to move to a more central spot near the hustle and bustle of Tucker Rd. and Valley Blvd. Of course, the irony that many of you long-time customers will see is that we're moving right back to the same shopping center we started in. BUT - it's twice the size of that original store. We're going to miss our friends downtown but will be excited to invite you to our new store soon!

Here's a look at the last few days of construction and changes to help keep you up on our progress! Click on any of them to get more details!

A talent company was here doing a casting call photo shoot at Canine Creek. They are looking for adult dogs to be featured on print media for nationally-distributed products. But the funniest "dog" wondered by... Oz the 7 month old kangaroo came to visit with the animal wranglers. Isn't he adorable?!

Canine Creek and Souza Family Vineyard are teaming up to offer fun for dogs and dog lovers this summer, and help raise money for local pet-related charities. Join us on Friday, September 23rd at Souza from 3pm to 7pm, where you can bring your pooch and enjoy wine tasting on the patio.
