Sebastian, a Creekside Kennel Happy CamperNine years ago when I realized that I had to leave Sebastian, my German Shorthair, in the care of another… I was a wreck. Anyone who knows this breed knows that, not only are they high maintenance exercise-wise, but they are extremely attached to their humans, thus garnering the nickname “velcro-companion dog”. I called 6 different kennels and visited them all. Creekside was the needle in the haystack.

Sebastian has such a good time when he is at Creekside that I never even give it a second thought anymore. He sees it as “playtime” and when we get there he goes right over to the door to the kennel – doesn’t even look back. Dawn treats him like one of her own and we actually refer to Creekside as “camp”. I get to bring all his bedding and whatever toys we want, and the playtime 2x a day is a lifesaver for him. Creekside is Sebastian’s home away from home!”
