I travel 30+ miles to get to The Barking Lot. I pass many other pet grooming locations on the way but would never dream of stopping at any of them. They just don't come any better than The Barking Lot. My cherished Basset Hound, affectionately considered my "son", was given the royal treatment for 9 years. He grew to love the shop and Steve and his employees grew to love Skeeter. He was always expertly groomed, toe nails perfect, long Basset ears clean as a whistle. He was always ready when I arrived and was in a great mood - I think he knew how good he looked! Skeeter had arthritis and joint issues and the folks at the Barking Lot were not only gentle with him, but provided padded cushions and mats to keep him feeling his best. When my sweet Skeeter passed away, the entire staff shared their sympathies and memories with me; something you just don't find unless people truly care.
Pros: Dependable, expert grooming techniques, loving care, go the extra mile
Cons: Absolutely none
