Bark Ave is great!! Don't take my word for it, ask my dogs. They go every 2 weeks. I've used them since they opened and would not consider going anywhere else. They even do my dogs teeth, and have saved me huge $ in Vet bills. My dogs are particular about what they eat and BA has help with what they eat. Can't say enough good things about this business!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The people at Bark Avenue have been doing my dogs since they openned for business. There are VERY few people that I would entrust my dogs to and I am pleased that I found such a great place. They never leave my dog all day without taking them for a potty break. They never leave my dog all day without providing water. Believe me, these things happen at other groomers. These are animal people. Their first and greatest committment is doing the best they can for your pet. From cleaning teeth, to expressing anal glands, to checking for ear infections, lumps and bumps you know a knowleable person is in your pet's corner. Another plus is the natural foods, treats, and supplements available for your pet. In this day and age, every pet owners needs access to such extensive information on pet nuitrition and they sell their products at such a reasonable cost. They once told me they started carrying this stuff because so many pets where coming in for grooming with bad skin issues, ear infections, and poor coat quality. When you can get all this AND a great grooming job why go anywhere else?

As a longtime owner of several groomed dogs, I am VERY picky about the treatment of my dogs. Bark Avenue has always helped me and treated my dogs with kindness, love and respect. If I had any questions I could always call and count on their advice. When I sadly lost one of my girls, everyone at Bark Avenue was upset. She meant as much to them as to me! That's when the owner's words "we are dog people, Not human people" hit home! Bark Avenue's people care for my dogs not me... and they do a FABULOUS job. Bark Avenue is recommended by MORE Orthapedic Vet Surgeons than Any GROOMER!

I have been taking my two beagles to Bark Avenue for several years now. They are wonderful! They do a great job, my dogs love the people there. I always ask for Blaze, and he does an outstanding joband their prices are wonderful! They are always accomodating, and sell all the good brands of food and treats. Even though we moved north of DC, I still make the trek back as often as I can to have my dogs groomed, because they are great and truly care about the dogs. Oh..and to respond to the person griping about the kennel....that is ridiculous OF COURSE they have to put the dogs in a kennel after they are groomed...to keep them clean, safe, and seperated from the other dogs!.

I have a goldendoodle and I have taken her to Bark Avenue ever since a few experiences at a chain when she was a pup. Bark Avenue is about the dogs - they know what they are doing and they do a nice job. They don't use the choke collars on the table which is much safer. I buy my dong food there too. After all that scare with the tainted food from China, I am glad I had been buying my precious coco's food there. These people know dogs. Perhaps the dandruff problem was related to the food. If she had chatted with the groomer, she may have given her a sample of some of the foods or food additives that may have helped her dog.

The people are great! They are caring about their clients and their dog clients. I have the highest regard for this groomer and disagree with the earlier post. Give them a chance and you won't be disappointed. The dogs come out looking great. Yes, the dogs go in a crate, but they can see all the other dogs and get used to the routine. At least the smart dogs, like mine do. Of course they don't want to get in a crate, they want to go home. But they eventually go home, tail wagging and all.

Plus, if you work like I do, you can drop them off in the morning and pick them up in the evening. This is also a plus.

Give them a try for yourself!

We took our yellow lab, Molly to Bark Avenue for the first time last week and were very pleased. The shop was clean, the people friendly and knowledgeable. Molly seemed very comfortable too. We had an excellent first experience. I consider them our groomers now and would definitely recommend them.

I took my newf/chow mix here after have a very bad experience at another groomer. I called first and spoke to one of the owners -- she was very pleasant and spoke with me at length. I felt comfortable taking my dog and made an appointment. When I arrived I was greeted (not really) the the other owner, who made me feel like I was disrupting her day by walking in. She looked at my dog, commented that his dandruff was caused by the "crap" I fed him, then wrote down my contact info and attemped to force my dog into a crate against his will. I was half a second from walking out, but he really needed to be groomed and I really wanted to give them a chance. She said "we'll call you when he's done" without verifying what I wanted done. When I said I wanted him cut, she acted shocked and said she was just going to bathe and blow him out. Ummm....no.... When I returned to pick him up he looked great, but the groomer who worked on him commented that I really shouldn't wait so long between cuts, that if money was an issue I wasn't saving any by waiting so long, because it took them longer when I brought him in like that. Obviously no one shared my bad groomer experience with him, but I still felt that was an unneccessary comment. All around it was an uncomfortable experience. The cut came out great, but unfortunately I won't return because I was made to feel like an inferior dog owner with their nonstop unsolicited advice. As owner of a pet sitting business, I was hoping to refer them to my clients, as well as use them for my own dogs, but I won't go back there. I left a message for the first owner, the one I talked to originally, the day after our appointment, and got no return call.

I had been going to a groomer in Springfield for a few years and she decided to retire so I had to find a new groomer. I have a 14 year old, blind, been through two back surgeries, pekingese with an attitude and was trying to find someone who would want to deal with him. When I called Bark Avenue and explained my situation, they were more than willing to take him on! So far, they have groomed my Max 3 times in the last 6 months with no problems and I couldn't be happier. I would recommend Bark Avenue.

A close family friend of ours has two dogs which go here all the time. They are outstanding! One of the dogs, Belle, a cockerspaniel, is just so beautiful, and I have to think it is thanks to Bark Avenue. They treat her very nicely and make her look amazing. The workers are very good with dogs and are really nice. This is the place to go for personal, friendly service - at the right price, too!
