Welcome to the barking babies™ dog grooming spaw, the chicest one-stop shop for the hautest hounds in town! Our spaw menu covers several grooming options and the best doggie stylists on hand for muttastic grooming makeovers. Finish off your dog’s stay with shopping our carefully curated selection of doggie duds from around the world.

Our treatments rooms are located in the back of the boutique behind a secure glass door. We have three additional gates for safety. Your dog’s well-being, safety and comfort is our #1 priority. 

Due to the size of our spaw grooming facility, we can only accommodate dogs under 30 pounds. 

what to expect

From a bath and tidy to the full spa treatment, we'll tailor to your barking babies™ needs with the rrroyal treatment!

We do not cage/kennel but rather book our grooming sessions one furbaby at a time and provide a gated waiting area for drop-off and pick-up. We want your dog's experience to be as stress-free and fun as possible! 

All of our shampoos, conditioners, and cleaning products are chemical free. You may also bring your own medicated shampoo.

Let us know in advance if your dog has any allergies or skin problems that require special attention like our hypoallergenic or allergy skin shampoos and conditioners.

what are mats and dematting?

Matting is a condition in your dog's fur/hair that is caused by dense tangles and knots. Matting occurs from:

  • lack of daily routine such as combing, brushing
  • not combing through prior to getting wet
  • not combing through while lifting puppy coat
  • stresses like seasonal allergies, moving, sickness and travel

Any signs of matting will be brought up during your consultation. If your dog has mats less than 25% of body and tolerates dematting, we remove mats by splitting, thinning and brushing them out. 

We have tools in store to show you how to use to better manage your dog's overall coat condition. Prevention is the best way to deal with mats!

costs for dematting & deshedding:

  • $1/minute for dematting - $10 to $30 (but not more than 30 minutes)
  • $1/minute for deshedding double coats - $15 to $60 (but not more than 1 hour)
  • These additional fees are added to your grooming bill

We believe in humanity before vanity.

If matting covers more than 25% of your dog's body, the shaving technique is often the best approach.

costs for shaving:

  • $25 shave off fee added to your grooming bill
  • You will be required to sign a waiver
  • You will be given an after care sheet 

Shaving is a slow, tedious and dangerous process that must be handled with experience and care. We are working on areas of your dog where skin is most likely thin and irritated. 

Matted coats are also hard on our equipment and in some cases two haircuts are required, the first to remove the matted coat prior to bathing and a second to even up the coat after bathing. 

Itching, skin redness, abrasions, hair failure are all possible side effects of mat removal. Pets may also experience short behavioral changes in some situations.

Please call at least 24 hours prior to your appointment to cancel or reschedule, if not you will be billed a $45 no show fee on your next groom. If you arrive more than 15 minutes late to your scheduled appointment, we may not be able to perform your scheduled grooming services (we don't want to keep our other clients waiting!). We ask that you pick up your dog within 15 minutes of our call.

Dogs must be up-to-date on vaccines and healthy - any dogs appearing ill or sick please do not bring in, and if we notice any coughing, fever we will ask for immediate pick up.

Should your dog display aggressive behaviour towards our groomers, we will make all attempts to finish grooming your pet and there will be an additional $25 will be added to your bill. If your dog continues to displays aggressive behaviour and our groomer is unable to complete your appointment, you may be charged a partial fee for the amount of time spent attempting to groom them. The safety of our staff and your dog's well-being is our #1 priority.

Anthea

Kristy is an exceptional groomer. Not only does she keep my two Maltese pups beautiful, immaculately clean, and matt free, she is also a vet tech and alerts me to anything needing veterinary attention. I appreciate her artistic gift, her all round interest in my dogs' well being, and her compassionate spirit. Thank you, Barking Babies, for loving our furbabies.❤

Meera

We have been coming here for years for our dogs grooming. We even continued to come after we moved to the north shore cause we couldn't find anything comparable. They are excellent - always quick which helps with my dogs anxiety. He always looks great.

Natalia

I cannot express enough how amazing this dog grooming shop is, particularly Veronica! She has been grooming my highly energetic mini Labradoodle puppy for the past two years, and every visit has been great. I trust Veronica implicitly with my precious doggy, and each time, I'm left more than happy with the results. Thank you!
