Help your dog look and feel their best with dog grooming

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 dog salon and spa. From a simple bath to elaborate dog grooming, our expert groomers focus on creating a calm and relaxing experience your dog can enjoy. You can add enrichment activities to help your dog relax even more 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.

Services, options, and prices vary by store. Visit your location for details.

Dog Grooming Services

We offer a range of dog grooming services in our salon and spa to keep your dog looking and feeling their best. Here’s a closer look at what we offer:

  • Dog Baths: Our professional dog baths keep your pup clean and refreshed. We use high-quality, dog-friendly shampoos and conditioners to ensure your dog’s coat is silky-smooth and healthy-looking. Whether your dog needs a quick rinse or a full bath and blowout, leave it to us.
  • Dog Grooms: Our dog grooming services are tailored to your dog’s specific needs. Whether your dog has long hair, short hair, or somewhere in between, our experienced groomers know how to give them a trim that will leave them looking and feeling their best. We offer everything from simple trims to more complex grooming styles, so your dog can get the look that suits them best.
  • Dog Nail Trims: It’s crucial for your dog’s comfort and health to have their nails clipped. Our doggy daycare offers professional dog nail trims to keep your pup’s nails at the right length. We can handle even the most skittish dogs, so you can trust us to keep your furry friend safe and comfortable during their nail trim.
  • Dog Ear Cleaning: Cleaning your dog’s ears is an essential part of their overall hygiene. Our dog ear cleaning service is designed to help prevent ear infections and keep your dog’s ears clean and healthy. We use gentle, dog-friendly products to clean your dog’s ears, and our experienced staff knows how to handle even the most sensitive ears with care.
  • Dog Teeth Brushing: Oral hygiene is very important for dogs. To maintain your pet’s teeth clean and healthy, we provide dog teeth brushing services. Plaque and tartar accumulation may be avoided with the use of our mild, dog-friendly toothpaste and brushing methods, which will also keep your dog’s breath clean and fresh.
  • Other services may include dematting, deshedding, hair dye, and more.

So fresh. So clean.

Enjoy cuddling with your soft, clean, healthy, and happy pup.

Central Bark staff work with your dog's personality to acclimate them to the environment. Our Maggie is very timid, and they worked with her so that now she plays with the other dogs. She is worn out for the evening and the next day. Thank you, Central Bark!
