Our Self Serve Bathing Facilities
The Perfect Wash Tub
Professional quality stainless steel, waist high, grooming tubs with high backsplash and sides that will safely hold any size dog -- from the tiniest Chihuahua to the biggest Saint Bernard. No more back strain and knee pain from washing the dog in your bathroom's "human" tub! Tie-downs are included, with the dog facing right or left, so you don't have to worry about holding him in place, and you can easily wash both sides of the dog. Inside each tub is a raised grate platform, which keeps Fido out of the wet, hairy, soapy water during bathing and drying, making the job easier.
Each of our six tubs are set in it's own separate area, which provides more privacy and helps to keep dogs calmer. Plus if you need help we're just button away as each station is equipped with a call-button for easy assistance.
Includes ALL These Amenities
Even with the basic bath, you and your fuzzy friend will have a complete experience that will bring you back on a regular basis. Each washing station includes all of the following for one low fixed price..
- Choice of Shampoo (See List)
- Warm water hand-sprayers
- Waterproof Apron to keep you clean and dry
- Rubber scrubbing brush
- Bath Towels - Use as many as you need!
- Professional high-velocity pet hair dryer
- Grooming tables with tie-downs also available for use
- Wood barel "locker" under table gives your a safe space to store your personal items
No Appointment Necessary
Our facilities are available on a first come, first served walk-in basis, so you can stop by whenever it's convenient for you. Metal stairs and a rubberized ramp are provided to help get big dogs into the tub, or onto the grooming table, without straining your back. For those of you with multiple dogs, holding crates are available in the shop so no one has to be left at home, or in a hot car, while waiting their turn for a bath.
Cleanliness is very important to us.
In order to provide the nicest bathing experience, and prevent the spread of pet-related diseases, our tubs and brushes are cleaned and disinfected after each use with a hospital-quality, germicidal, anti-bacterial cleaning solution. Our fluffy white pet towels are cleaned in a commercial grade washer with bleach, and dried on the hottest setting possible. The shop is also wiped down, mopped and vacuumed daily to insure that each customer enjoys a clean environment.... whether they're the first or last visitor of the day.
Sit back and relax.
Bringing along a friend or family member, and wonder what they'll do while you're bathing Fido? Don't worry, we'll make sure they are comfortable. We have a chairs out front of the shop, a picnic table on the back patio area (with fenced dog pens), and two nice wood rockers in the retail area for hanging out. To pass the time, and keep little ones occupied, we offer a nice selection of Disney and other family-friendly video movies, including several with animal themes. Coloring books, crayons, paper and clipboards are also available upon request.
Convenient hours, 6 days a week.

A Great Change in Behavior!: Our two year old Beagle for quite a while was a large nuisance. She would constantly jump, scratch, lick, and never leave you alone. She had a great deal of energy that never seemed to seize, or that she was never relaxed. There was a period of time that she would go to the bathroom at night in her crate. It was as if something was bothering her or annoying her. There would be times that she would eat her dog food and times that she would not eat her dog food. Sometimes she would go for a day or a bit longer without eating but then she would eat again. We just thought that she was being stubborn, and due to her constant begging, wanted human food. We could tell that something was bothering her. After her dog food was recalled that we purchased at Canine Creek, we decided to purchase another dog food from Canine Creek that we had not used in the past, "Canidae Grain-Free Pure Elements". I am not kidding, there was an instant change in our dog's behavior. Our beagle is much calmer. She doesn't jump, scratch, or lick excessively. She will now lay down and sleep like a normal calm dog. Since we have changed her food to Canidae, she has not gone to the bathroom in her crate and she has eaten every meal that has been put before her. We feel bad that for several months our dog did not like the food that was given to her and she was actually constantly hungry and annoyed. We are now much happier to have a dog that is much more relaxed and not agitated. Thanks Canine Creek!!
