Congratulations to our apprentice Katie who was placed in the top 3 of the beginners group of the Great North Groom only 8 months after she started grooming!

We take a holistic approach at Barkdale and aim to make the grooming experience a pleasant one.
Barkdale is completely open plan, the dogs are groomed without harnesses or restraints, relieving any stress or tension they might have. Dogs are free to wander round and play with their friends while they are awaiting their turn, but have separate cushioned spaces available if they need a bit of quiet time.
We have a full wet room that dogs walk into, perfect for little and large dogs alike, and we use shampoos and conditioners by leading US brand Isle of Dogs to tailor the treatment specifically to your dog’s skin and coat needs.
A little extra care goes a long way to ensure that dog grooming is an enjoyable and stress free experience for your dog.
