It is with great sorrow that we must close the doors once more to Barkdale. Despite running our business with social distancing in place, no client contact and following COVID restrictions to the letter, the regulations for dog grooming have changed once more this week with the result that we can only give appointments to dogs referred by a vet or those in need where the condition of the coat is severely impacting the dog’s health & welfare.
Anyone with appointments pre booked over the next 4 weeks will be contact to rearrange.
If while we are closed you feel your dog is suffering due to skin conditions or severely matted coats please do contact us and we will organise a one off appointment.
Love your dog.. we do too 💙

What is special about Barkdale?
Our aim is to make dog grooming a pleasant and fun experience for your pet. We do not use restraints, as we believe it causes more stress. Unlike many groomers, we work in group sessions, morning or afternoon, so in addition to their groom, dogs can play with their friends. This has many advantages, including dogs are more relaxed when they have friends to play with, and if a dog is feeling stressed during the groom, we can give him a break and come back to him later.
We understand that a few dogs prefer to be on their own. We do have a limited number of one on one slots, so contact us if your dog is not the sociable type.
What services do you offer?
We offer a full range of services, such as full groom, wash and dry, furmination, nail clipping , face tidy. We also offer puppy sessions as a gentle introduction to grooming for your new puppy.
How long have you been in business?
Barkdale has been grooming for over 10 years. We strive to continually improve and we also have a dog grooming school, Barkdale Academy, where we teach others our methods.
