Dog Grooming


OPEN SATURDAYS 10-4 & MIDWEEK BY APPOINTMENT-ONLY

We provide City & Guilds Level 3 accredited dog grooming from our Preston salon every Saturday.

The Barks & Recreation grooming salon is based at 301 Fylde Road, Preston, PR2 2NH. Our grooming services run alongside our supported dog grooming service, supporting adults who have a learning disability to learn new skills and improve their physical health, mental wellbeing and social skills in a real work environment. Please click the link to read more about our supported dog grooming service.

Should you wish to make an appointment please email us or telephone 01772 381062.

We recommend arranging a time to visit us with your dog prior to your appointment as we'd like you and your dog to feel as comfortable as possible. It also gives us a chance to get to know your dog a little better and assess their coat prior to grooming.

Additional grooming services

De-matting - full groom + £10 surcharge

On occasions where a dogs coat is severely matted there will be an additional fee to cover the extra work involved. Before we agree to groom a dog with severe matting you will be asked to read and sign a disclaimer form that explains the effects of matting pre-groom and post-groom.

 

flea treatment - bath + £10 surcharge

To protect your dogs and reduce the risk of infestation we have a no-groom policy with regards to dogs and fleas. Should we find fleas on any dog during its visit it is bathed and washed using flea shampoo and the owner will be asked to collect. Please do not be embarrassed - any dog can get fleas - but it's important that the dog visits the vets for appropriate flea treatment.

The cost of this service covers the bath with flea shampoo and salon treatment that will prevent infestation.

 

nail clipping - from £6

Price varies depending on behaviour. All breeds - £6 to £10

 

Puppy Introductions - just £10

The dogs that are difficult to groom are often the dogs that weren't introduced to grooming as a youngster. They also take longer and therefore cost more money to have groomed. You can help your pup feel more comfortable at the groomers and save money in the long-run by introducing them to a groomer from a young age.

Our puppy introductions are for dogs aged between three and six months. The service includes a bath, hand dry, blow dry, nail clip, ear clean and a little trim if required.
