About Flat Creek

Helping Dogs To Be Their Best


Flat Creek Pet Care is a locally-owner dog training facility in Evington, Virginia. We believe in training dogs to be the best they can be in regards to their health, behaviors and relationships with others. Our balanced approach to dog training uses various methods and tools to create a clear communication system, so your dog understands clearly what to do and what not to do.


We believe in helping the dog owner create a strong bond with their dog through engagement, play and a balanced lifestyle. 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.
