Creekside's Grooming Spaw Offers Full-Service Grooming Tuesday through Saturday!

We specialize in a
Gentle Touch Approach

All baths start with a special tearless face shampoo and only the highest quality products are used for your dog’s specific coat needs. Our premium, deep-penetrating coat conditioners hydrate, condition, moisturizes, and untangles while leaving the coat silky-smooth and oil-free. At Creekside, the natural luster of your best friend’s skin and coat is only a spaw day away.

What We Offer

Basic Spaw Bath

Every dog is first brushed and double bathed to naturally loosen extra hair with an invigorating massage, and then rinsed to squeaky clean perfection. Lustrous conditioners and detanglers help the blow drying process that results in the sleekest coat possible for the type of coat your dog has. This option includes eye stain treatment, ear cleaning, gland expression, nail trimming, and a tidy sanitary trim if necessary.

Premier Spaw Treatment & Haircut 

Adds a professional, breed-specific haircut to the Basic Spaw Bath. Our experienced groomer is a skilled technician with almost two decades of specialized clipper and scissor styling skills for all breeds…and it shows!


All listed prices are guidelines and may increase depending upon the length of coat, condition, matting, behavior of the pet, how much time is involved, and how many handlers it takes.

What to Expect from Creekside Pet Boarding’s Grooming Spaw

  • We initially evaluate each dog’s skin, coat, ears, nails, health, and behavior to properly plan the most comfortable procedure for your dog’s well-being. Owner’s input is always important to us. 
  • Our grooming session may take anywhere from 1-4 hours depending upon the dog’s behavior, size, coat condition, and style requested.
  • Drop-off dogs in the morning and clients will be notified when their pet is ready.
  • Every dog is lovingly hand-washed twice with the best shampoo and conditioner for your pet’s coat type and condition. No expense has been spared and careful research has gone into the products we use. All are pH-balanced and safe for puppies or grown dogs, and the luxurious scents are a bonus! 
  • “Our professional styling includes breed-specific haircuts and special requests are welcome”
