Grooming

In an effort to best accommodate our current clientele, we are not accepting new grooming clients at this time.

The Barking Lot groomers have over 40 years of combined experience and continue to further their knowledge by attending grooming seminars to learn the newest tricks of the trade. Our groomers are talented, caring and patient. We have no problem working with nervous or difficult pets. We can accommodate all breeds and hairstyles, dog or cat.

A typical grooming session includes a nail trimming, ear cleaning, a gentle massage with our premier bathing system and a hand fluff drying. After the bath your pet will be brushed out and groomed with a hand scissor finish.

Drop Off and Pick Up
Grooming is by appointment only. You can call during business hours or send us an e-mail at barkinglotdm@aol.com to make an appointment for your pet. Grooming drop off is between 7 am – 9 am. We work on a first arrive first done basis, so the earlier you arrive the earlier your pet can be done. Your groomer will discuss what you want done and what is possible depending on your pets coat condition and temperament at the time of drop off. Your groomer will also give you a pick up time at drop off.

Vaccinations/Flea and Tick Preventative
We require Rabies, Distemper/Parvo combo and Bordatella vaccinations. We also strongly recommend having your pet on some kind of flea and tick preventative. Any pet that is found having fleas will immediately get a flea treatment and the owner will be charged an additional fee of $12.00-$22.00 for this treatment. We will not accept any dog without proof of current vaccinations, this is a state law.

Cancellation and Late drop off Policy
We ask that if you need to move or cancel your appointment you give us 24 hours notice when possible, so that we may allot that appointment for another client. If you fail to show up for your appointment there will be a $20.00 fee added to your next grooming bill. Drop off is between 7am and 9am, there is a fee of $5.00/15 minutes, after 9am. Our groomers work on very tight schedules and try to accommodate each of their clients’ needs. For this reason we ask that if you are running late the day of your appointment or need to come in later please call and notify your groomer. The Barking Lot has the right to refused service to anyone who is late for their appointments.
