Leading the way in Superior Dog Care in Cork

Creedons Dog Care offers elite dog care services for busy dog owners to help them provide their dogs with the very best of dog care in an environment where your dog is our primary care and truly becomes part of the Creedons family.

How it all began…

Nanci, was already working in the pet care industry, running Doggie W.A.G.S., a very successful dog walking and grooming service. She was in such demand that she was turning away dogs, and dispite three walks daily, her huskys still had energy to burn off at the end of the day. That’s when she came up with the idea of a designated indoor play centre for dogs. Through the internet she quickly found out that doggie daycare was a booming industry stateside, and after talking to lots of Cork based dog owners she quickly learned that there was a massive demand for a similar service in Ireland.

After seven long years of planning, researching, saving, and furthering her own education, Nanci took the plunge and opened the doors to Creedons Doggie Daycare, Munsters first and only dedicated dog care centre with complimentary services.

One of the most important priorities to Creedons is that positive reinforcement and gentle handling of all dogs was of the utmost priorities. There are a lot of old school theories and thoughts to dog handling, but thanks to life long learning, Nanci is keen to maintain forward thinking, progressive dog handling practices, and help to educate the general public on why old school methods should be forgotten, and why modern positive techniques work!

The team at Creedons has grown to include:

 Donna Forde Kennel Assistant

Donna also joined Creedons for a nine month internship and has since been hired to care for our hotel guests.
Donna has a fantastic way with our holidaying dogs, making sure their rooms are sparkling, their cameras are switched on, their beds are turned down, and there is a treat on their pillow.
Donna is the proud mum of Louis, a very special pug, and Lexi, a collie mix rescue. Lexi joined Creedons after we got a call from a veterinary practice looking for our help. Lexi was due to be put to sleep as a young pup for biting, but through the gentle care and training of the Creedons family, Lexi is now a happy and friendly much loved family member.
