Dog Wash Prices
How our pricing structure works
Tub usage fees are charged by the size, breed and/or coat type of your dog, to make the prices appropriate to the amount of water, shampoo and tub time needed by each customer. Because we charge by the type of dog, there is no time limit..... so please take your time and enjoy bonding with Bowser during his bath. Following are the general pricing guidelines. The actual amount charged for your dog(s) may vary, depending on his size, coat type and coat length/condition. However, once we set a price for your dog, and have it on file, it will NEVER change, even if our prices goes up in the future! **

Letter from a Canine Creek customer to his family and friends:
"Ever been in the right place at the wrong time for the right reason? I know it sounds confusing, but sit tight and I'll explain it to you...
Yesterday we went to Canine Creek to get dog food for Smokey and Bandit. We spend a little extra on dog food to get a good quality food that doesn't cause explosive flatulence as it was really getting hard to deal with. We found having to flee the room because of toxic "wind" was no longer an acceptable option. While we were there, the girls were discussing a puppy: people had stayed at a local motel for a couple days and they checked out leaving a puppy behind in the room. Evidently the hotel people tried to reach the owners with no success, and Kern County having a 95% euthanasia rate at the shelters ruled out taking her to the shelter. So the next thing I know, I am expressing interest in adopting this little puppy, which is where the wrong time part comes into play...
Long story short, they had the puppy checked by a vet (she's in great shape all around) and this is what we know: She's 10-12 weeks old, Border Collie with possibly Australian Shepherd mix. We have to assume no shots and we'll have her spayed when she's old enough. She has a wonderful disposition, walks well on a leash (Matthew walked her and she did OK), doesn't really care for baths (tries to hop out of the tub) and is just as cute as can be.
So, what started out as an innocent trip to get dog food, ended in the adoption of a sweet little puppy for Matthew and because she was nibbling on his toes, ended up being named Niblet. I'm reasonably certain she'll have her moments of destruction as she grows older, so for now we'll enjoy the blast of puppy breath and be thankful we were in the right place at the wrong time for the right reason."
