Dog Grooming & Spa

Help your dog look and feel their best

There’s nothing like snuggling with your dog when they’re soft and clean and smell nice. We offer everything you need to keep your dog clean, healthy, and comfortable at the Central Bark® Charlotte-Matthews Dog Salon & Spa. From a simple bath to an elaborate grooming treatment, our expert groomers focus on creating a calm and relaxing experience your dog can enjoy. Enrichment activities can be added to help your dog relax even more and during their spa day.

All dogs are unique. Just like humans, your dog deserves personalized grooming for their size, breed, coat type, and condition. For this reason, prices, products, and services vary. Please ask an associate for details.
