Mr Boshen. is amazing
We were visiting from out of town and they worked us in. Oliver really enjoyed his experience and received many compliments.
Teddy loves them. we love them. they are amazing.
Our little girl Vala is so pretty that I can hardly believe this skinny little waif was only a year ago rescued from a WV shelter.
Nice folks... Reasonably popular!
One of the finest pet grooming businesses in the Richmond metro area (if I may be so bold- Steve- owner
Stumbled upon The Barking Lot by mistake. Nora was very personable and customer focused. She explained the process throughly and answered all my questions. Nora even called to confirm my trim request. I requested a cleanup trim and that’s all she did. My baby looked beautiful and appears really happy with experience. I will be going returning. Thanks Nora!!
Just moved here from AZ. Found the Barking Lot online and decided to give it a shot for my pup’s first cut out here in VA! Made a great choice! Would recommend to anyone! My pup is a handful and gets nervous when being groomed. The staff was very patient with her and she came out looking and smelling fantastic! Prices are reasonable too!
Been going here for several years for my cocker spaniel, Molly. The staff is always professional and curteous and I love the phone call reminders. The ladies have been a sounding board for me at times for questions not totally relating to grooming but are always quick to give me advice to calm my anxiety. Thank you for all that you do!!
My boys have been attending The Barking Lot for about 15 years. One loves his special spa day and the other is very tolerant of the attention (he's all of 20 years old and is a bit of a curmudgeon.) Excellent care and grooming. They're like the canine whisperers! Thanks BL!
Very friendly staff that does great work
Brought my schnauzer-mix in and they did an excellent job! He absolutely HATES getting his hair cut and gets very worked up. They managed to get him done anyway and were very willing to work with us. We will definitely be back!
That's our pet grooming place if you live in the Fan take your 🐕 for some TLC.
Brought my 12 year old border collie/ lab mix here for the first time today. They were not only super accommodating with fitting her in last minute, they were also super friendly and did a fantastic job! The price was also very reasonable for everything they did. I will definitely be a repeat customer!
4 dogs and over 12 years + Amazing owner that cares and a staff that is like my family. Don’t go in here expecting a PetSmart - good. You’ll be disappointed. If that’s what you want, leave. This is a unique, personal & eclectic experience that is personalized to fit you and your pets. Got a compliant? Voice it and make sure they have a chance to rectify any miscommunication. Unsure your dog is ready - call and try a partial day.
Have been bringing our dogs to The Barking Lot for 20 years. (Yes, Steve, we’re old!) The dogs are happy to get there when we arrive because they know they’re going to get loved and pampered (and maybe a treat or 2?) Sassy was just groomed yesterday and she smells so good and looks so pretty! Thanks, y’all!
I am a little prejudicial in that I own The Barking Lot, however, I have to say I have the best bunch of employees an employer could ask for. They love their job and it shows.
Great place for your dog. Friendly service and knowledgeable staff. Definitely make your pet feel like one of the family.
Small shop. Caring people, Good job on my dogs, ALWAYS! I have 2 dogs, a blue pitty and a lab mutty. My pitty, a very sweet girl, was attacked by another dog and became a bit scared when going for her groomings after that happened and they have been truly wonderful in working with her and increasing her comfort level while there. Good prices and good people who do an awesome job!
I always bring my two small dogs here. All the groomers seem to love my dogs and my dogs like going there. They listen about how I want their fur (keep it longer, cut it to an inch, etc) and do a good job grooming them. They always call the day before to remind me of my appointment and have good customer service. I'm confident and happy bringing my dogs here.
