Miss Taylor and Sally

Miss Taylor is the owner and lead stylist of Little Barks Grooming and Boutique. She took over the boutique and Salon From her Mother,Miss Kim in 2015. But that’s not how she got her start working with dogs. She started in 4-H at the age of 11. It was quick to see that this was her God given Gift. She quickly began winning small shows and placing in state fair and 4-h competitions. She continued training and even earned A.K.C titles on her family dogs in obedience and rally. Pushed to follow her gift she began looking for something to combine her Gift with a passion for art and creativity. That’s when she found dog grooming. She apprenticed for over a year with a groomer to learn the basics but still wanted to learn more she took it upon herself to learn new techniques and better herself. She worked hard and slowly became better as she learned by watching industry leaders like Jodi Murphy, Jonathan David, and many more. As she learned she quickly realized her true God given gift was helping dogs with Problem skin and Coat. She decided to learn from industry leaders and now holds 2 certificates in skin and coat was well as Being a Certified Canine Esthetician. Her dream of helping dogs with skin issues started with a Boston and became purpose for her. Miss Taylor’s Boston battled skin issues, Calcinosis cutis, and Cushing. Which she was able to help with her knowledge and partnership with local Veterinary team. It is now Miss Taylor hopes with the knowledge she has learned she is able to help many pups with problem and special needs skin and coat. She knows personally how hard it is for our beloved pups to fight with these issues and not be able to help. With Miss Taylor’s love and knowledge she brings a different way of thinking to the grooming.

MRs. Kim
Mrs. Kim is a Certified Fear Free Groomer and does the majority of the Grooming at Little Barks. She has a passion for helping Pups enjoy grooming.

Kim started her journey in the pet industry in 2000. It began as most careers in this field do, with a dog well not just a dog a poodle named Cinnamon. After losing her Mother to Breast cancer, Kim was to say the least broken and overwhelmed by depression and heartache. Cinnamon saved her and gave her a purpose. I really think how a lot of stories about people and their dogs begin “they saved me”. So, it began, Cinnamon suffered from relentless skin issues the worst of them was nylon she had a horrible reaction to her own collar! A rash turned into an infection which turned into an absence. Kim was at a loss at the time every collar out there was nylon so what is a girl to do but to get creative and fix it. Kim has always loved to create especially sewing and quilting, so a business was born.“Little Barks” has always been about helping dogs and using our gifts that God has blessed us with to help them and their owners. What began as one simple collar to help the Love of her life dog, has grown into helping so many dogs and their owners show the love they have for each other in simple but meaningful ways.Grooming, Skin and Coat care, training, healthy treats, fashionable and functional accessories. When you have a passion for something it is easy to learn and enjoy every part of it. Kim has spent the last 20 years learning and growing to serve dogs with love and knowledge to give them best of her. Little Barks is really part of Miss Kim and her Family. The goal and mission are to help as many dogs and owners as we can show their Love for each other and stay healthy and happy on the way. With God’s grace and love as guidance we cannot wait to do just that for many years to come.
