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® Milwaukee Downtown Dog Salon & Spa.

Our Groomer


Let me begin by saying how much I love animals and especially making all your precious pups Happy, Healthy, and Whole! I began my grooming career by attending The Hands-On Grooming Academy. Upon graduation where I attained my professional certification, I have been continuing my hands-on training for the past two years while working full time as a professional groomer. I love being able to make all the pups calm and at ease because of my compassion for all animals I learned while growing up on a working farm. Throughout my childhood I showed cattle, goats, bunnies, and horses at our county and State Fair. Dog grooming has become my greatest passion in life and I am so thankful to have relocated to Milwaukee to further my career working with Dana and the rest of the CBDT team! When I not grooming you will find me rock climbing, drawing, painting, and handcrafting jewelry. Lexi is available Monday through Friday by appointment only.

Pampered Pups

So fresh. So clean.

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