We are two sisters, Rosie and Laura, who love dogs. We both left our careers, Rosie in marketing and Laura as manager of a chain of coffee shops to pursue our passion. We are trained to a high level in dog grooming and we opened Barkdale to create a new standard in the dog grooming experience. It is our belief that dogs should enjoy coming to be groomed. The grooming area is open plan in the front of the salon and dogs can play with each other while they await their turn.
In time we decided that we want to teach the Barkdale way of grooming to others, so we opened a teaching facility at our salon. We then created this site to help pass on our knowledge to a wider audience about how to groom and also how to care for your favourite pet. Our aim is to help everyone be able to provide the best care for their own dogs and to keep them happy and healthy. We will be offering lots of tips and guidance on dog care and grooming and we would love to hear from you if you have any suggestions about what we can share.
