I find it to be a sneaky under-handed tactic when a business finds it necessary to get a company to copy & paste good reviews from one sight and paste it onto another. I mean its real easy to figure this one out. As I am shopping the reviews on this place to see if I want to take my dog there, I start to see the same "good" reviews written verbatim on several different sights. Really? I WONT BE GOING TO BARKS!

Thank you! What a difference we're seeing in Scout. She is so much easier to handle. We still have more work to do with her and plan to continue pushinf her a little more. Your added suppost is greatly appreciated as it helped us with what we needed to do with her to continue a happy, healthy relationship in our house. Thanks again.

I brought my baby in for training and they took the time to expose her to daycare, walks in unfamiliar places and the infamous "place" position. She's doing excellent with all of the components she learned in her training program. :) Thank you.

Thank you for the training you provided for my dog. She came to me as a shy, hesitant, nervous dog, who would hide from anything and everything. She is now confident, playful dog who loves to go for walks. She is obedient and a joy to be around. Her interaction with other dogs is much better too. I am very thankful. :)

this place is aweful. they are over priced for the poor quality of grooming. they want way too much to put your dog in daycare for not even a nice daycare, doesn't even have anyone watching them. the owner walks around with her head tilted up like she doesn't even see you, she didn't even speak to me. she was yanking on a poor dog because he wasn't moving fast enough for her. I will never be back.

Terrible experience ! No one watches dogs in daycare ! My puppy got severely hurt ! oh I understand dogs play rough and can get hurt, but this was the 3rd time within a months time! I should have known better because I had been going there for 9 months for grooming and not once did I ever see a daycare attendant. After my sweetie got hurt the 2nd time, I asked the dark haired receptionist, robin I think, who watches these dogs all day and she said we do, the receptionists, I asked well you cant even see all the dogs, especially when they are out in the front yard, she actually had the nerve to say, well, they come back into our sight eventually... and she chuckled and went about her business. I mean who the heck hires people like that??!! do they not have a clue how incompetent they are ? oh and I asked the owner to refund my money for a 30 day package I bought because I was not coming back and she said , oh I cant do that, if I refunded everyones money just because their dog got hurt in daycare, I wouldn't be able to keep my doors open. at least now I know why the receptionists are rude. don't take your dog there people, they are not protective of the dogs and the employees are rude, well the front employees anyway.

I took my dog there for training. Big mistake ! The trainer/owner is a phony and I can tell shes a phony because she contradicted herself many times during several conversations we had. I caught her in several lies and she didn't even realize she had been caught. One day I called and was put on hold for so long I had to hang up and call back. When I called back, I was told that the trainer, penny, was walking with my dog at that very moment down the side walk in front, to get her used to seeing different surroundings, part of the training for my particular dog. What the receptionist didn't know was that I had been sitting in the parking lot for the last 20 min since I was on hold that long, and while I was sitting there, penny drives up, about 2 in the afternoon. I waited about 10 mins and called back, penny gets on the phone and I asked her how my dog did walking in front of the different stores just now, I told her the receptionist said she was out front with my dog just now and she said " oh, uh yes, I was just out front with her, she did very good. That was a lie ! I noticed that my dog was losing ALOT of weight, when I asked penny about it, she said that was normal but also my dog wasn't eating good, but 5 mins prior to that I was having a conversation with kennel guy and I asked how my dog was eating, and he immediately said " oh no problem at all, she scarfs her food right away, every time ! which is more like the truth, my dog has always had a good appetite and will eat anything ! When I was visiting my dog one day, I could see penny training another dog, and she was pulling on the lead soooo hard , sharp and fast yanks, and the poor little dog had a pinch collar on, and was yelping with every yank. And I heard penny say.. well... its YOUR fault ! Stop sitting ! come on !!! Oh I felt so sorry for that little dog. She was obviously frustrated with the dog, she said " oh ! come on, im putting you up, you are getting on my nerves with that sh@& ! But the second she saw me, she put her sweet voice on, come on sweetie, lets go back to your house. Sooo phony !! I picked up my dog next day. Infested with ticks by the way. tons of them between her toes, they were very visible on her, of course penny said that was normal too ! and tried to get me to buy a bottle of tick control stuff for $25.00 ! And it was a small bottle ! She charged me for 2 leashes, I didn't notice until I got home. She said, oh sorry about that, you will just have a credit for when you come in next time. I AM NEVER GOING BACK THERE AGAIN. MY DOG FLINCHES EVERY TIME I RAISE MY HAND, SHE NEVER DID THAT BEFORE PENNY TRAINED HER. The receptionists are rude and rush you. In person AND on the phone. I just hated the whole experience, the place stunk like pee every time I was there. I understand its a dog shop but this was overly strong. When I went to the kennel to put my dog up one time, I noticed a roach in her food, disgusting ! And I noticed she did not have a blanket or anything to lay on, I asked about it and they said, that's because she is potty training, the trainer doesn't allow linens in the cage if they are potty training.. I said well what if she tee tees, she just suppose to lay in it ? and they said yes !! That is what helps her to learn not to pee in her cage. Don't take your dog there, its very obvious that the owner of that place has no integrity at all !! And does not treat the dogs right !! The owner is A FAKE !

id like to comment on "krovang" great dane review. i AM considering barks for boarding & other services & based on your review, i am going to gladly give them my business & refer ALL my dog friends to help keep them in biz. seriously lady, did u even READ what u wrote? hellooo..nutcase, 1st of all, i hardly think these people r going to bring your dog out to u with all this blood coming from his feet so bad he couldnt walk, what did they do, piggy back your 150# dane? "stricken demeanor"?? oh my..HE WOULDNT LOOK AT U ? are u in drama class at school? i think so ! call 911,my 150# dane has 2 little scratches on his bigas! legs from playing "like a dog" in "daycare" that HIS OWNER ENROLLED HIM IN,your vet ruled negligence? really?hmm lets see, the mgr her/his self gave personal service,they could have sent min wage kennel staff to deal w u,they "gave" u antibiotics!,WRAPPED his pads! (bet that was fun 4 them)and only charged u for 4 days instead of 10! so what does it cost to brd a horse of 150 these days? id guess a min $25 a day, so they "ate" 150 bucks to try & make u happy. "THEY" didnt "ruin"your dog lady "he was ruined by you before they ever saw dukkie" they went WAY over & above what they had to, i only hope they take such good care of my "dane" yes, i have a dane too. here we come barks 5th avenue

"stricken demeanor"?? oh my..HE WOULDNT LOOK AT U ? are u in drama class at school? i think so ! call 911,my 150# dane has 2 little scratches on his bigas! legs from playing "like a dog" in "daycare" that HIS OWNER ENROLLED HIM IN,your vet ruled negligence? really?hmm lets see, the mgr her/his self gave personal service,they could have sent min wage kennel staff to deal w u,they "gave" u antibiotics!,WRAPPED his pads! (bet that was fun 4 them)and only charged u for 4 days instead of 10! so what does it cost to brd a horse of 150 these days? id guess a min $25 a day, so they "ate" 150 bucks to try & make u happy. "THEY" didnt "ruin"your dog lady "he was ruined by you before they ever saw dukkie" they went WAY over & above what they had to, i only hope they take such good care of my "dane" yes, i have a dane too. here we come barks 5th avenue

We have been coming here over a year, as long as we had become dog owners. After going to other groomers now, Im not sure why closing time was the pick up time after dropping off before 10am, like requested. Our dogs didnt stay there less than 8-10 hours a day. Our new services have yet to be over 4 hours.This day was not even different, we picked up our dogs at closing time, to notice one of our dogs eyes were so bloodshot red, she looked like she had been choked so hard, the eyes almost popped out. I had never seen this before. The employees didnt seem to notice, until we pointed it out. My dog jumped into my arms and I could not speak. My husband asked most of the questions to the owner, we were told it was hemotoma of the eyes, caused possibly by pulling on a leash. I felt there was some negligence on their part, but nothing was admitted to us. I lost sleep thinking of what possibly could have caused this, certainly not pulling on a leash (10 pound pup) dont want to think of what really happened. How long do you have to pull on a leash for your eyes to become bloodshot red? I was practically in tears when we walked out of there, and to this day never recd a phone call to follow up on how our dog was doing. I want to make people aware, our dog is good after weeks of recovery. I dont want this to happen to anyone else. And yet to have anything like this happen again at the groomers. They lost our loyalty and trust and therefore we moved on.

I boarded my dog here June of 2010 when I went to Mexico. I wasn't going to write a review about how traumatizing this experience was for my dog and I, but I just want people considering this place to understand that now almost a year later I am still feeling repercussions from our terrible experience. When I picked up my dog last year, he had the stricken demeanor of being beaten. He would not look at me, like he had been punished. As well, his pads were torn and bleeding inhibiting him from walking for a few days, pimples covered his face, both of his elbows were swollen with scabs, and two small puncture looking lesions were on his back legs. Although the manager gave me antibiotics, wrapped his pads, and only charged me for 4 of the 10 days, I felt none of this should have happened. My vet even ruled the next day as the negligence as the cause. I almost denied the charge on my credit card. Even to this day, Duke refuses to get into my car, because he believes he is going back to this place. Duke is a 150lb. Great Dane. There is no picking him up and putting him in the car. They ruined his fun-loving eager attitude. He loved riding in the car and was in perfect health before he was brought here. He now has scars on his elbows and face marring his Merle coat and I just wrestled with him for almost 30 min. trying to get him in the car to go to the dog park. I want people to consider my experience and think carefully about paying money to these people.

My wife and I have used Barks 5th Avenue on several occassions.....so you think we would be considered as loyal customers.....WRONG! We left our yorkie there for boarding ONLY.....no grooming. The groomer mistakes our dog with someone else's dog.....shaved off half the hair on his back before she realized it was the wrong dog. Yes...you are thinking just like me....dont the dogs have on name tags.....yes they do! So my wife talked to the MANAGER about the incident and she said she would comp a 50% grooming for the next visit....if you are thinking like me..mmmmmm NEXT GROMMING....NO...DIDN'T REQUEST THE FIRST ONE! SHE WAS VERY RUDE TO MY WIFE ON THE PHONE AND TOLD HER TO COME GET THE DOG, NEVER COME BACK AND HUNG THE PHONE UP IN HER FACE. I spoke with the OWNER... SHE TAKES UP FOR HER MANAGER.....NO ONE IS HELD ACCOUNTABLE AND SHE CLEARLY STATES "YOU AND YOUR WIFE ARE OVER REACTING...THE HAIR WILL GROW BACK?. What about your POOR CUSTOMER SERVICE. I am not a complaining customer, but I must warn you DONT BE FOOLED BY BARKS 5TH AVE. You may have a few good experiences, but you will experience BAD CUSTOMER SERVICE, RUDE MANAGEMENT, and AND A RUDE OWNER.
