We created Barkdale when we couldn’t find a grooming salon where we were happy to leave our own dogs. We want grooming to be a stress-free experience where dogs are happy to come to the salon. Barkdale is completely open plan and we wash, dry and trim without harnesses or restraints. This helps to relieve any tension a dog might have.
Barkdale works in group sessions, so your dog can play with friends while awaiting their turn. This social time can help to relieve any anxiety your dog might have about the grooming process or being in a new place. There are also separate cushioned spaces available if your dog needs a bit of quiet time.
We have a full wet room that dogs walk into, perfect for little and large dogs alike. A range of shampoos and conditioners by leading US brand Isle of Dogs enables us to tailor the treatment specifically to your dog’s skin and coat needs.
At Barkdale, we take a holistic approach and aim to make the grooming experience a pleasant one. A little extra care goes a long way to ensure that dog grooming is an enjoyable and stress-free experience for your dog.
Your dog, like ours, is an important part of your family. When they are not with you, we understand that you want to be confident they are being looked after and having fun.
That’s what Barkdale is all about.
And, our clients think we are pretty terrific groomers too…
