The All-New Creekside Grooming Spaws Now Open 7 Days a Week!

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 Treatment

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 hand blow drying process that results in the sleekest coat possible for the type of coat your dog has. This option includes eye stain removal, ear cleaning, gland expression, nails trimmed, and a tidy sanitary trim.

Premier Spaw Treatment & Styling  

Adds a professional, breed-specific haircut & styling to the Natural Spaw Treatment. Our certified groomers are skilled technicians for specialized clipper and scissor styling for all breeds.


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.

Why We Are Different

  • Daycare is available while your dog awaits their Spaw day.

  • Cats are kept in a different building.

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.
  • Before the bath, the nails are trimmed, the ears are cleaned, and the initial brushing will help with excessive shedding and remove tangles while the professional assessment is completed. 
  • 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! 
  • Hand-drying on your pet’s face, ears, and tail is a careful process to keep the experience positive and our dryers are not heated. Different breeds require a variety of methods, and you can rest assured that we will find what makes your pet the most comfortable. 
  • “Our professional styling includes breed-specific haircuts and special requests are welcome”

  • Your dog’s leash and collar or harness or an enclosed carrier.
