How do you choose the right groomer for you pet?
That starts with asking some simple questions:
What is most important to me as a owner, the haircut, the experience, or the safety of my pet?
Do you want the picture perfect trim without the pets emotions or safety in mind?
Then Little Barks is not the groomer for you.
If you want your pet to run in the door, and be comfortable, respected and safe
and look adorable.
Little Barks is the Salon for you!
Can't wait to meet you and your pet.
What to expect during the First Visit
at Little Barks
Humanity over vanity above all else. The average pet visits the groomer every 1 to 3 months for pawdecures, baths, and/or a full haircut. That means your pet will spend a good portion of their life at the grooming salon. Some pets go years experiencing intense fear and anxiety related to grooming. Science tells us that repeated exposure to stress causes a plethora of health issues for pets and humans! With Fear Free grooming, we will not ignore your pet’s fear response in the name of getting the job done. Our groomers have been trained to always use a gentle touch, never causing pain or using intimidation. We work hard to provide a calm and relaxing salon environment. Your pet will be spoiled with yummy treats and lots of love! Tables and tubs have non-slip surfaces to ensure your pet feels stable and supported throughout the groom. Calming music is played and pheromones diffused to create a soothing and serene atmosphere. Hearing protection is available to help pets feel more relaxed during noisy procedures such as drying and clipper use.
Gentle Encouragement goes a long way. A bath can be relaxing.
The first visit is about being comfortable with the Salon the tools and their groomer Miss Kim.
The pets in my care deserve my complete attention and the best of me, so that means that the first groom will go slow and let your pet set the pace. If they become nervous, anxious or scared then the grooming process stops. Break time so they can feel calm and safe. Safety and a Great first time visit is the priority. This means that the perfection haircut may not happen on the first visit. Although I absolutely want your pet to look their best , how they feel is the first goal.
