    Excellent experinced staff

    The groomers and staff are great at The Barking Lot! I took my goldendoodle there after several other experiences at other grooming shop where they just shaved him down. My groomer Lyndi, worked with me on haircut options that would work for Rudy's hair as well as showed me how to brush and comb him in between grooming appointments. It is so nice to go to place that commutates with you. I have also used their boarding services once and had a great experience as well. All around a great place that really cares.

    Won't Board Anywhere Else!

    I have boarded my dog with The Barking Lot numerous times and am very pleased with the care he receives! Would highly recommend to other pet owners!

    Extremely Pleased

    We had our dogchild stay with the Barking Lot over the Xmas Holiday and are extremely pleased with our experience. She stayed in one of the "VIP" rooms and was very well taken care of, and seemed very stress free when we picked her up (After they closed, which they were willing to accomodate us! Thanks again!)Our dogchild was well groomed, and smelled fresh when we brought her home. Thanks again Barking Lot!

    No problems

    We have taken our dog there a number of times, and have never had any problems. Everyone is very nice and cooperative.

    This place seemed really nice when I dropped off my dog, I felt my precious little girl was in good hands.While I was dropping her off and explaining what I wanted done for her hair cut, I asked if they plucked ear hair, & cleaned the ears, she said, Yes, that’s included in the groom.When I picked her up, everything seemed great, I didn’t check her ears, I thought my saying something would make it a priority. I get her home, & checked her ears, low and behold, not cleaned or plucked.Then upon further inspection, she has a chuck missing from her face.I call the place, tell them what is going on, & she was like well you can bring her back in so we can fix her ears, & there was a mat in her face where the chuck is missing, it was hurting her brushing it out. I comb my dog at least every other day, & I know that there was not a mat large enough to make her face that uneven (if there even was one), & they didn’t tell me when I picked her up. The owner really didn’t seem to care that I was u
