Welcome to our

Creekside Den offers training programs in the comfort of a real home environment. Dogs in training live as a part of our family 24 hours per day for the duration of their stay. Everyone knows that dogs prefer a cozy home and big yard over a cement kennel, while their people want them to be comfortable and stress free. With only 3 dogs in training at a time, Creekside Den allows dogs to spend their days playing, relaxing, and training with constant companionship, and their nights sleeping in a heated or air-conditioned bedroom: just like home. A dog with a relaxed mind is happier and more willing to learn new things! When they are happy and learning, we are happy too!

  • Kids, Dogs, and Nature
  • Low Stress Home Environment
  • Constant Socialization
  • Home Behavior and Manners
  • Formal Obedience
  • Professional Puppy Raising

We understand that your dog is a part of the family. When you need training or boarding, choose Creekside Den, where our mission is to give you the obedient dog of your dreams. Our program is guaranteed to improve the communication and relationship between you and your dog, without sacrificing his comfort and happiness. Your dog deserves the best.

  • Max finally got his XXL raised bed. Munching on a bully stick and lazing around while Grandma cooks dinner. He's been doing great! Grandma is very pleased and we all are. Thank you very much. Max is doing very well. I have taken him on three long formal walks since we picked him up, and he does exactly what he is supposed to. I tell people he has been formally trained and they want to know where, so I tell them Creekside Den. You have made a believer out of me.
  • She did very good today. Re-introduced seamlessly. Thanks

  • Hi Kerry,
     Thanks so much for checking in! Baci is doing great - We are practicing new tools - ie BED - throughout the day and she is getting much better at them.  We went to the park this weekend and Baci attempted to go up to little children and say hi! Clearly her time with your daughter made strides in getting Baci used to small humans :)
    Thanks again for everything!!

  • I cannot thank Kevin enough for training our angels. They are completely different dogs and I would recommend him to anyone. Kevin worked with our dogs on their aggressive behavior and I feel much more confident handling and being in control of both of them. I am truly amazed at how much their behavior has changed and how quickly Kevin was able to do this in such a short amount of time. Thank you Kevin!!

  • Kevin – Great job with Daisy and Ivy! Saturday the carpet cleaning guys came -I put Daisy and Ivy in place on their Kuranda beds and they stayed! even with strange men in their home with funny tools and kind of scary noises! It was amazing. Then the pest control guy came and while they were in place he walked all around them. They didn’t move. It was so nice not to have to control two bouncing jumping puppies with the service men there. Thanks for all you did. You Rock!!!

  • Wanted to thank Kevin Coombs for all the help with our dog, Ringer. After the 4 weeks in-house training he is so well behaved and polite, it is amazing. He really is a different dog. Looking forward to continuing his training. Thanks for all your hard work! “

  • Hey Kevin-Bentley is doing SO well. I took her to the vet yesterday and there was a dog there that was growling and charging at her and she just SAT there!!! YAY!!! We even get compliments on how well behaved she is when we are out on walks. Thank you so very much!!

  • “Beautiful dog, and great work. I can tell you from personal experience that any dog who has worked with Kevin has basically been to dog college! I can highly recommend Kevin if you have a dog in need of training, and can recommend any dog who has received that training! He essentially helped save my dog’s life by training him for 4 weeks prior to my adopting him!”

In Home Training

Your pet will become part of our pack and learn how to properly behave in a real house with kids, toys, and daily activity- not in a warehouse type training building.

Relaxation & Cuddles

Your dog will get lots of free time in the house, where they will be pampered and cuddled just like home.

Experienced & Certified Trainers

Your dog will live in a home where both adults are certified trainers with 12 years of experience. The kids are also great little helpers who have grown up with dogs and training since they were born!

Natural Environment

Our DEN is located on 2 acres along Scatter Creek, which gives us and the dogs a stress free and peaceful atmosphere.

Aiport Pickup / Transport

We frequently have dogs flown to us for extended stay and training. We are close to Seattle Airport, and Portland International Airport- we can even help with flight details and bookings!
