Mission

Dog boarding and training in an intimate and safe environment

Flat Creek Pet Care is a small facility offering luxury dog boarding and dog training. Our mission is to provide exceptional care to each guest in a safe, stimulating and fun environment. We nurture each guest’s physical and emotional health by providing a balance of exercise, mental stimulation, dog socialization and human companionship.  With a limited number of rooms, dogs boarding with us are given an abundance of personal attention and opportunities for positive socialization with other dogs in supervised playgroups. We match dogs in play groups according to their size, age, play style and temperament so that all are safe and happy.  But if your dog is not social or has behaviors that are not conducive to group play, do not worry!  We offer the same amenities and activities with the same number of let outs throughout the day while supervised by a staff member.

Training dogs to be their best

We believe in training dogs to be the best they can be in regards to their health, behaviors and relationships with others.  We have a balanced approach to dog training, using various methods and tools such as food, luring, marker training, positive reinforcement, e-collars, prong collars, crating and slip leads to set up a clear way of communicating to the dog what behaviors we want and what behaviors we don’t want.  We emphasize educating the owners as much as the dog so that you have success with your dog listening and behaving with you as well.
