Everyone at Barking Glad is dedicated to giving your dog the care and expertise it deserves to look and feel its best. Now run by Lynn, our friendly salon was originally set up by Irena in 2006 and continues the tradition of kindhearted handling, attention to detail and excellent customer care.
Lynn and Irena are joined by Bob, Lyn T, Alex, Jill, Donna and Richard, who have each been picked for their particular skills. We’re all dog lovers and have owned, trained, bred and rehabilitated many breeds between us before training to groom. It’s this passion for pet care that gives owners the peace of mind that their dog will receive a personalised service and tons of attention, making it an enjoyable experience for all.
We groom all breeds, from excitable puppies at twelve weeks old, to the aged, timid and infirm. Each pooch is treated with the utmost care and we operate an open door policy, inviting owners to watch the process if they wish. Meanwhile, the entire area is safe and secure, guaranteeing that dogs with plenty of energy can’t escape their pampering.
We’ve put a lot of thought and focus into creating an environment that’s welcoming for humans and relaxing for dogs, so we know you’ll love visiting Barking Glad. Owners from across Halesowen, Clent, Stourbridge, Quinton and Bartley Green choose us for regular dog sessions, plus we have multiple customers that visit us from much further afield because they want the very best for their furry friends.
Whilst every dog has its own personality, they all fall into three categories: some shed their coats naturally, others need their hair clipping, and then there are the ones that require handstripping. Whatever the case, we’re here to provide grooming that’s thorough yet gentle.
Handstripping consists of us removing dead hairs entirely from the dog, allowing new ones to grow from the root. The result is a beautiful new coat that grows in naturally and to its full potential, which looks wonderful and ensures that your pooch feels great all year round.
Our specialist service also allows owners to choose types of grooming and styles.
Alternatively, we can recommend the right approach tailored to your pet, helping to improve health, happiness and hygiene.
With compassion at the core of our philosophy, you know that your dog will always receive customised treatment and unparalleled duty of care.
Took Luna for her first grooming today and was very apprehensive as she can get nervy around new people and and other dogs. I needn't have worried. Friendly staff who obviously love their jobs and know what they are doing. Luna looks fab and i have no doubts at all about recommending this quality service to my friends and family. Will be regular visitors from now on. Thank you!
I’ve took my Hansel here since he’s been a puppy, the thing I love most is how lovely and kind they are to my dog, he gets lots of love and affection and always looks immaculate when I put him up! The fresh smell lasts forever!! Thank you x
