Grooming

Your dog’s Luxurious barbershop

Welcome home! We’ve turned our garage into a beautiful spacious studio for our dogs. We offer a crate free environment so your pup can get a fresh bath + groom all while being stress free.

WHY BARK & TAILS GROOMING?

  • Appointments are booked one dog at a time – so your pup is getting a true “SPAW” day with our undivided attention.
  • We offer a 100% cageless grooming experience – which is similar to a “hooman” hair salon. We only groom ONE dog at a time, unlike other traditional salons that have many pets arrive and then place them in a cage until their groomer is ready for them. We do NOT have any cages and your pets will never ever be placed in a cage for drying or waiting.
  • We only use top of the line products to pamper your beloved pet

All about our pampering services

Pawdicure

We start by trimming nails and then we grind them for a smooth finish. Finally, we apply Snout organic paw balm to protect and keep paw pads moisturized.

Dematting

Dematting is the removal of knots in your dog’s coat. We use a gentle, alcohol-free dematter to help loosen and brush out the knots. We do absolutely everything possible to brush out the mats. However, if the coat is matted to the extent where brushing is causing pain to your pet, we will suggest a shave down.

De-shedding

De-shedding fantastically reduces shedding with the Furminator tool. De-shedding has the most wonderful results when done on a regular basis.

Tooth Brushing

Doggos need dental care just like we hoomans do. The tooth brushing treatment will help preserve your dog’s pearly whites. Our organic natural gel contains a unique blend of organic coconut oil, sweet potato and cinnamon provide a tasty treat without any harmful ingredients.

Ear Cleaning

Ear cleanliness for dogs is important. Eliminate the risk of painful ear infections. Our ear cleaner is formulated with the best natural ingredients including, Aloe Vera and Eucalyptus to cleanse, remove excess build-up and to soother any irritation.

Brightening Wash

A sulphate-free wash formulated to brightens coats of all colors. It will leave your pup’s coat with a dazzle full of shine.

Blueberry Facial

Kindly massaged around the face, this blueberry treatment is gentle to the ears and eyes. It helps reduce the appearance of tears staining and works magic on cleaning out facial folds on breeds such as frenchies, bulldogs, pugs and more…

DOG GROOMING FAQ’S

WHAT DO YOU MEAN BY CAGELESS DOG GROOMING?
At Bark & Tails Grooming we offer a 100% cageless grooming experience – which is similar to a “hooman” hair salon. We only groom ONE dog at a time, unlike other traditional salons that have many pets arrive and then place them in a cage until their groomer is ready for them. We do NOT have any cages and your pets will never ever be placed in a cage for drying or waiting.
HOW LONG DOES THE GROOMING TAKE?
Each dog is different, but a good estimate is roughly 3.5 hours for small to medium-sized dogs and a little longer for large dogs.
HOW CAN I PREPARE MY DOG PRIOR TO THEIR GROOMING APPOINTMENT?
Make sure your dog has a good walk before their grooming appointment. That will help your dog be calmer.
DOES MY DOG NEED TO BE FULLY VACCINATED?
All dogs are strongly recommended to be current on all vaccinations and are REQUIRED to be up to date on their Rabies vaccination in order to receive grooming services.
DO YOU ACCEPT WALK-INS?
No. We only groom by appointment. The Bark & Tails grooming experience is designed to groom one dog at the time.
HOW OFTEN SHOULD MY DOG BE GROOMED?
Most dogs get groomed on a 6-week schedule.
HOW OLD SHOULD MY PUPPY BE FOR THE FIRST GROOM?
We recommend bringing your puppy in for our Puppy’s First Groom around 12 weeks of age. This will help us get your puppy used to grooming, so that we can make grooming a positive experience.
HOW CAN YOU HELP MY DOG’S EXCESSIVE SHEDDING?
We offer a de-shedding treatment service that involves special shampoo and conditioner that helps loosen up the dead undercoat so that we can then blow and brush it out. This service does not eliminate shedding, but it will help greatly reduce the amount of shedding when done on a regular schedule.
WHAT KIND OF TABLE AND TOOLS DO YOU USE?
Bark & Tails uses professional grooming tables and leashes, along with professional-grade tools. We sanitize the tools in between our clients, and that’s very important!
CAN I STAY WITH MY DOG DURING THE GROOMING EXPERIENCE?
No. Dogs are calmer and better behaved for grooming when the owner is not present. When the owner is present the dog is so focused on the owner that it disrupts the grooming process. It simply is harder on the dog and the groomer. We need the dogs’ full attention. We are using very sharp equipment around your pet’s eyes and other “private parts” of the body. With the owner present the dog will not remain still enough for us to groom him safely.
WILL I BE CHARGE EXTRA IF MY DOG’S COAT IS MATTED?
Yes, there is an additional de-matting fee. The price is dependent on the amount of matting we have to work through.
WILL MY DOG BE MUZZLED?
Your dog will only be muzzled if it needs to be. If you know that your dog will need a muzzle for certain things, please let us know.
DO YOU GROOM CATS OR OTHER ANIMALS?
No, we are only a Dog Grooming Studio.
I CAN’T PICK UP MY DOG ON TIME, DO YOU OFFER LATE PICKUPS?
Yes, we do. For an additional fee of $15 per/hour.
