” I just wanted to take a moment and tell you Thank You. I know I tell you, but I really want you to know that I really do appreciate it. I wanted you to know that it does my heart good to see Maggie go to sleep with a smile on her face. I mean she has a real smile on her face when she goes to sleep after a day at your house. I can’t explain to you how much Maggie enjoys coming to Doggy Day Care. Thank you for sharing your home and your life with the dogs of Kent.”
— Sheri B, Kent
” Maryellen: I did want to thank you for sharing your bit of paradise with me (and Demi). I can’t say how much I enjoyed meeting you and getting the tour. I had a smile on my face all day. What a terrific place you have. I could tell almost from the moment we met and by just the “feel” of the atmosphere there, you have a very special place for dogs. How lucky we are as owners to be able to connect with someone like you to care for our companions! You may hear from me again when we have a need but in the meantime I am telling people about my experience at your facility. ”

It has been hard for me to find individuals who take pride in their work and who have a real honest connection to what they choose to offer in the area of professional services.

“I wanted to thank you for all the TLC you extended to Murphy so that he could enjoy his Thanksgiving! He loved the homemade treats. Murphy is as always looking forward to seeing you on Tuesday. Thank you so much for taking such good care of my boy (despite his occasional bouts of “puppyness”!). He’s currently out on the back deck barking at absolutely nothing! How long will his puppyhood last??? Best always & thanks again,”
— Carla J, Kent
“I can’t thank you enough for taking care of my baby boy, Cody, while we were away. That love and attention really showed when you came to visit. He was so excited to see you. Thank you again for being so kind and generous. I will be recommending you to every dog owner I know.”

“Creekside Critter Care has been a life saver for my dog Toby. He loves going to Creekside. Maryellen is wonderful in giving Toby the love, exercise and care he needs. Toby has been going to Creekside since he was a puppy and the additional training he gets just from her understanding is invaluable. He’s tired when I get home but very very Happy. Don’t know what I’d do without her. Thanks, Creekside.”
— Selina H, Renton
“My dog, Jackie, loves Creekside Critter Care! Maryellen, and everyone at CCC, is wonderful and so good with the dogs. They really go the extra mile in taking care of the dogs, giving them the mental stimulation and physical exercise dogs need to be happy, relaxed and non-destructive. Jackie eagerly waits to go to CCC – I think she thinks it’s her second home!”

“If you were ever considering putting your dog into daycare, I would tell you to give Creekside Critter Care a call immediately.
I can say that it was one of the best things I could’ve ever done for my dog. Cortez is a Border Collie/Rottweiler mix, which means he has a lot of energy and a very busy mind! As an only dog in a household of two cats, it was evident to me right away that his socialization with other dogs was not what it should be. He had gone through obedience, but had very poor manners at off-leash dog parks. He was constantly chasing, herding, and well, pestering other dogs to the point where the dirty looks I got from other owners made me decide I was no longer going to bring him to off leash dog parks anymore, but I still thought it was important for him to be around other dogs. There was also the issue of exercise. I work full time, and was able to walk him at least three times a week, but it was still not enough. So I decided to look into daycare for Cortez and gave Creekside Critter Care a call. They invited my fiance and I over to evaluate Cortez to see if he would do well with other dogs, and to talk with us.
Maryellen is extremely knowledgeable when it comes to animal behavior, and has helped us in many ways by reporting to us things she sees in his behavior, and working with Cortez on behaviors that need to be corrected so that he plays with the other dogs in the group in a manner which is acceptable. As a former groomer and veterinary assistant, I am very involved with my pets and consider them members of my family. Their welfare is extremely important to me, and I strive to provide a loving, nurturing environment. I just want my pets to be happy! Daycare for Cortez is a big piece of this equation. Maryellen or Ann pick Cortez up and drop him off. I know he is loved and taken care of there, and that is immensely important to me. He gets a tremendous amount of exercise, which benefits him and gives his mom a break! He looks forward to daycare so much that he will often pace by the door on Thursday mornings constantly looking out the window, waiting anxiously for his ride to pick him up. Once they come and get him, he makes a beeline for the car. He can’t wait for the fun to begin. I am so grateful to Maryellen and Ann for all their love and care, and I know if Cortez could talk, he would tell you that Thursday is his favorite day of the week!”
