Guidelines for Dirty Dogs
- Dogs must be on leash, held in your arms, or in carriers at all times, and under the control of an adult. For the safety of all our guests, please lock your retractable leashes to 6 feet or less while in the shop.
- Do not leave pets unattended at any time.
- Make a mess? Please notify us right away so we can mop up to prevent slip hazards.
- For health and safety reasons, we recommend that puppies be over 4 months, with all their puppy shots, before you bring them to the shop.
- Please keep a close eye on your pets while browsing through the store. Items damaged by chewing, leg lifting, etc. are considered an "instant purchase", and they will be added to your bill upon check-out.
- Disruptive and/or aggressive dogs may be asked to leave, at management's discretion. If you need them, muzzles are available for loan, for use in the shop, at no extra charge.
- Children must be attended by, and under the supervision of, a parent or responsible adult guardian at all times. We want kids to have fun and enjoy their visit to the shop, but If they break it, you bought it.
- Please be courteous to our neighbors, and scoop da' poop. We offer plastic bags at no charge, and a dumpster is available across the drive from the shop. Please use them.
- Play nice, get clean, have fun!
Walking Together - Toonie & Kimberly: "Petunia is a 73 pound Old English Bulldog with a heart of gold. Unfortunately, she tends to be a bit “head strong”. As I have MS and on my best days have balance issues, Toonie was getting to be too much of a dog for me. We had actually come to the point where we were exploring placement options and looking for a home for her. I had never considered a Gentle Leader as I thought her nose was too small to wear one. Thankfully, one of the staff at Canine Creek got me to try one on Toonie one day when we were in to bathe her. WOW. What a difference! I CAN NOW ACTUALLY TAKE Toonie for a walk. We are no longer searching for a home as now her behavior on leash is rolling over to her behavior off leash as well!" Kimberly Clemens, Tehachapi (See Kimberly's inspiring story on HowIFightMS.com)
