Skin and Coat Care, is not a marketing gimmick.
A commitment to gain knowledge and educate ourselves on the science of the canine skin and coat is a passion of ours. Although, many Groomers use and offers different shampoos and “spa” items, it goes beyond that with Little Barks Grooming.

As Little Barks Groomers we strive to be and do our Best, currently Miss Taylor is working towards her Master Estheticians Diploma. When we say we will do What the dog needs, and that is added to the groom we do not do this because we want to upset you the owner, we do this because we want to help your dog feel and look there best. This may include a bacteria and fungal treatment, A dander treatment, de-matting mask, de-shed treatment, and anything your dogs coat need to be healthy and give your dog the relief and comfort they deserve.
