Grooming Services

Pets certainly know when they are clean and looking good. Well-groomed pets are happier, better behaved, healthier, and more outgoing. Just like all of us, they feel good when they look good. Bark Avenue Dog Salon offers a complete line of grooming services to bring out the best of appearance in any breed. We work carefully, never rush, and do not overbook appointments. We always take our time and do it right. Our grooming categories may be described as follows:

Basic
This is an essential service that maintains the appearance and hygiene of your pet. Each Basic service at Bark Avenue includes:

  • Premium shampoos and fine conditioners
  • Blow dry
  • Full brushing out
  • Nail trimming
  • Ear cleaning
  • Poochie Spritz
  • Bandana

Your dog will look good and smell great.

Advanced

This service includes all Basic items above plus trimming the hair around:

  • Paws
  • Ears
  • Loose ends
  • The potty and private areas
  • Other places as required

This is less expensive than a full haircut and appropriate for dogs who want to maintain the current length of their coat, but simply need a clean-up and a sanitary trim.

Custom
This service consists of a full haircut from nose to tail, using scissors and clippers. Haircuts start with a full bath, brush, and blow dry and include all the elements described in our Advanced service. You decide exactly how you want your pet to look and how long or short the hair should be.  Bark Avenue will work hard to give your pet the individual look you want.

Pricing
There are many variables in pet grooming, such as whether your pet has long or short hair and also if the hair is matted and tangled. Therefore, there is no set pricing for grooming. Bark Avenue sets individual prices for each pet, largely based on the time required to complete the chosen service. Factors which determine the price of a service include:

  • Amount of scissor work
  • Brushing
  • Clipping
  • Degree of matting
  • Difficulty of the cut
  • Disposition of the animal
  • Drying time
  • Length of hair
  • Size of pet

However, you will find our prices quite reasonable. We will be happy to quote you a price range over the phone, and we invite your inquiries.
