This was Harley’s first time at the groomer and Lena was great with him! He looked absolutely adorable, smelled great, and he wasn’t stressed out.

Have been brining by pup here for 16 months. Sammie and the staff are great. You can tell they truly love their clients. They always greet Teddy so warmly. Appointments are reliable - I always get a text + reminder, and flexibility to book appointments / go on waitlists is well-managed. On a couple occasions I've asked to have the cut trimmed a bit tighter in certain areas and I've always been invited to come in ASAP to address. The shop is very cute - retail items + I love that the dogs are not kept in the back - there are small kennels + a communal "waiting area" for clients. Seems like they don't overbook, either - i.e. there aren't a ton of pups waiting, which gives me peace of mind. My pup is usually ready in 1.5-2 hours. Highly recommend!

First time ever bringing our pup to a groomer and everyone was so helpful and friendly! They took excellent care of my dog and he was brought back to me looking at cute as the day I brought him home. Love this spot. Definitely will be returning!

Absolutely love this place! I have tried at least 5 different grooming spots for my pup, and have not been pleased until I found The Bark Spot. They are super fast, they care about my pup (and it shows), super commutative and wonderful customer service. 100% recommended!

The ladies at the Barking Spot are amazing! Our sweet pup, Hazel, came to us from a local rescue and she is very anxious. Jessica and all the wonderful staff are all so patient and loving with Hazel. They go at her speed to give Hazel the best bath. We love the Barking Spot!

It’s a little more pricey than we are used to, however the dogs looked very nice.

Mochi had a hard time at first, but Jeanette was very patient and caring with her. She did a great job under the circumstances, and we will be back to the Barking Spot in the future. We're very happy with how Mochi looks, smells, and feels after her grooming date! -Michael

The staff here are always friendly and professional. My Toa girl always looks amazing every time we bring her to the Barking Spot. I also love their treats, toys, and accessories.

My dog is 14 tears old with mobility issues. The folks here were extremely considerate of his health problems by giving him breaks, showering him with love, and still doing a super job.

My doggie is not a fan of grooming or strangers. These ladies make him feel comfortable and relaxed and treat him as if he was their own. It took me a while to find a good groomer and happy that I’ve been a customer for years.

Barking Spot always does a great job with my dogs. They are both nervous and can be a handful but they always look amazing coming home. We love taking them here!

I brought my puppy Loki here in October and I was pleased with their grooming service. He just got groomed today and I just like how friendly they are and professional. I recommend this spot for grooming and I will be coming back.

I have brought my dog (Australian/Golden Retriever mix) to this business several times. The staff are incredibly communicative, friendly, and always do such a great job! They really understand how to cut a dog’s fur and my pup always come back with a neat and even trim, plus a cute bandana. Just a heads up that they do not shave, as that is actually detrimental to a dog’s ability to cool down properly. They are located right next to Macy’s. I will definitely continue bringing my dog here.

Barking Spot cares for your pet family member like their own. I never have to worry about my pup. And her doodle cuts are always amazing!

They do a great job with my pup. It's easy to make an appointment and there are typically many time slots available. The standard bath is very thorough and he always comes home very soft and smells great! I can tell he enjoys his time there because he gets so excited when we walk in.

I have found my new groomer! They provided an awesome cut for my dog, everyone always groomed him the same way and the barking spot introduced me to a new style for my dog Rocky and I am in love! They also treat my dog well and have friendly staff. I hope they don't get too busy because I plan to send my bdf (Best dog friend) every few weeks for his salon treatment!

Lena did an amazing job grooming our family's husky! She left her smelling good, very soft, and nicely trimmed. We will definitely be coming back again!

Lena was an amazing groomer!!! My dog looked really good and her fur was so soft! I will definitely be requesting her again. Besides having amazing groomers they also have the cutest pet products. I ended up buying a really cute pink leash for my dog. Next time I'm hoping to get one of their dog bandanas!

Great service and communication. They gave my Boston Terrier a groom and he was so happy and smelled great afterward! Would definitely recommend!

This location is great for pre-work drop offs for dog daycare! Victoria is friendly and clearly loves animals. Our puppy is energetic but Victoria and her team are up for the task. Scheduling is easy, flexible and accommodating even with long work hours, but I know my dog is in great hands! I’ve tried dog daycare in the past but none of them have the level of service I’ve experienced at Barking Spot aThe report cards mid day are a nice touch!

I just took my Yorkie, Cutie for the first to get groomed with Michelle and I am a very satisfied customer. Michelle did exactly what I asked for. Cutie was groomed in an 1 1/2 as promised. Cutie came home very happy and looking great! Their service is excellent. Thank you so much Michelle!

Sammy is a wonderful groomer! She took great care of our dog, who tolerates being handled. Super clean doggie salon and super customer service for pets and owners!

My dog is high anxiety and the ladies at Barking Spot always take their time and treat her as gently as necessary! They are so patient with her. She loves going there and is always excited to see the groomers, a welcome change for a rescue who is afraid of strangers!! I even got a photo of how much she was enjoying her bath. Can't recommend this place enough. They also do deshedding which is a lifesaver!!

Barking Spot did such an amazing job with my two golden retrievers!! As you can imagine, grooming is a monthly necessity for my fur babies and I’m so happy to have found a groomer that I will be a regular at!

So glad I found Barking Spot SD for Asher. He always looks so good after a groom or just a clean up and he runs right in every time we go.
