Creek Ranch is the home of Timaru Salukis and Anatolians,
and is also a licensed dog boarding facility. We (Lesley and John) have
over 80 years of dog experience between us, including Shelties, Salukis and Anatolian
Shepherds. We offer overnight and day care for a limited number of
discerning dogs in a peaceful, low stress setting.
Having to board out our own dogs periodically over the years, we never
found a kennel we liked. They were loud, too much concrete, too
crowded, too much stress and filled with a lot of unhappy dogs. So,
when we moved to the country, we were
determined to provide a much more pleasant experience for our guest
dogs. About 20
feet from our house is our spacious and luxurious dog
facility, where our own canines spend the night and guest dogs are
welcome. The facility was custom designed and built by us, based on our
years of experience of what makes our own dogs happy. It is NOT your
usual dog boarding facility with dozens of smelly concrete runs crowded
into a confined space. We have 5 runs altogether, some of which are
usually used for our own dogs.
runs are attached to a picturesque barn in which the indoor section
of each run is accommodated. Each spacious, heavily insulated indoor
apartment has two luxurious dog
beds raised above the wood and linoleum (not concrete) floor with
plenty of space between the beds. Each indoor dog apartment opens out
to a large, clean, individual outdoor gravel run (again not
concrete). All runs include redwood decks for outdoor reclining, and
are exceptionally secure with heavy duty woven wire sides. The runs
have views of the the plentiful wildlife and farm
animals who inhabit the ranch, so your pet can enjoy the diverse sights and
scents of country life. An adjacent half-acre
grass-and-shade-tree paddock with a secure 6 foot perimeter fence is
dogs get to run around during their optional play sessions for
additional exercise. The ranch also has
miles and miles of spectacular trails winding through our grasslands
and forest, along which your dog can be walked for an extra fee.
Since our dog facility is
directly adjacent to our house, we only accept guest dogs who are
quiet, otherwise we will be kept awake at night!

Rate: Overnight boarding rates
are $45/night. If you have more
than one dog and they can share the same run, the rate is $35/night
(based on double occupancy). Intact dogs
are welcome. Daycare Rates: Out for the day and don't want to bring your pet? We offer
daycare at $25/day.
Included in the daily rate is up to two feedings a day of the same high
quality dry kibble we use for our own dogs. If your dog is accustomed to a
different diet, you can provide food for the duration of your dog's
stay at your option. Complicated feeding plans requiring extra work for
us may incur additional cost.
We are happy to accommodate any special medical needs. An additional $5
will be charged per day for the daily administration of medication. Play Sessions
Personally supervised exercise sessions, in our large (half acre) and
secure exercise area, with open pasture and trees for shade, cost $25 each.
We have many miles of private woodland and grassland trails and walks
on them are
amazing treat for a boarding dog. Due to the very labor intensive
nature of these walks and the extra care we devote to them, we have to
charge $75 per occurrence
for these special outings.
