The Barker Shop first opened its doors in July 2014, and since then, we have grown into an amazing busy salon. We pride ourselves on the highest standard of pet care (large or small), excellent grooming standards and customer service, and our fully qualified, City and Guilds Level 3 Diploma groomers go that extra mile to ensure pet and customer are totally satisfied. Here at The Barker Shop we love dogs and always strive to keep your pup happy and looking great.
Canine First Aid Trained
Owner Liz completed Advanced Canine First Aid, because pets have accidents the same as humans and knowing what to do should the worst happen is extremely important. Canine first aid is not aimed to replace veterinary care but it will help to recognise an emergency, calm your pet and reduce the risks of delayed treatment.
Certificates are displayed in the salon with all relevant information. Please ask if you are unsure when you pay us a visit.
Outside work hours
When we close the salon on Sundays and Mondays we carry on working attending seminars and workshops around the UK, always learning and updating the skills we have. We are committed and dedicated to always bring and deliver the best service there is to offer in grooming in the UK for your dogs and this will carry on for the foreseeable future.
Why choose us?
The Barker Shop offers individual attention to your dog. Appointments are scheduled with a stylist that specialises and is experienced grooming your breed ensuring your dog is well cared for and styled appropriately.
All services are performed by appointment only. This allows us to give your dog undivided attention during his visit. It also eliminates the need for your dog to be caged for many hours. Please schedule your appointment at a time when you will be available to drop off and pick up within a few hours.
The Barker Shop uses only the very best in coat products! All the shampoos we use are free from harsh chemicals such as alcohol, parabens, soap and dyes. The shampoos are ‘Leaping Bunny’ certified by Cruelty Free International and endorsed by The Ethical Company Organisation and Nature Watch Foundation. If your dog has a vet prescribed shampoo or cream rinse we will be happy to apply it for you at no extra charge.
Pricing is determined by the size, breed and temperament of your dog, as well as the condition of its coat. We’ll discuss all of this at your initial consultation so there’s no surprises.
