Our family is centered around dogs. We raise English Shepherds & Leonbergers, and train and show them in Obedience, Agility & Conformation.
Stony Creek offers grooming for all breeds of dogs! We offer friendly & affordable grooming to existing and new clients. Grooming appointments are booked Monday thru Saturday by appointment only. Early afternoon appointments are available by request.
Obedience classes are a good idea for all dogs regardless of breed, age or size. Even if you know how to train your dog to sit, down, etc. obedience class is very good socialization for the dogs. Lack of socialization can lead to separation anxiety and aggression towards other dogs and people. The classes are to design to teach your dogs better "people skills" when greeting other people & animals, to help with any housebreaking issues, and to help with and annoying or destructive behavior. For more information on our obedience please go to the Obedience page.
Agility is the canine team sport where a dog runs through an obstacle course at the direction of the handler. Almost all dogs, big and small, enjoy agility. This sport is based on activities that are natural to dogs - running, jumping, going through things such as tunnels, etc. It is the kind of activity that dogs recognize as part of their "heritage". The fact that their owner participates as well makes it even better!
