Depending on the breed and condition of the pet, we recommend that you have your pet groomed every 4 to 6 weeks. Your groomer will be happy to guide you with a grooming schedule that meets you and your pet's specific needs.
Proper grooming not only improves the physical appearance of your pet, but also improves the physical and emotional health of your pet.
We maintain a thorough history of every pet we groom. On your first visit you will be asked to complete a client/pet history form. This form provides us with a full background of your pets' medical, emotional and grooming history, your veterinarian's information and all of your contact information.
Most of our grooming services can be completed within 2 to 3 hours. (Depending in our schedule)

We groom pets from start to finish enabling a grooming to be completed in a shorter period of time. This seems to make our most nervous customers more relaxed. We will usually start within 15 minutes of scheduled appointment and will call our client 10 to 15 minutes before the completion time to reduce the amount of time your pet will spend in the crate.
OVERNIGHT BOARDING AAAAHHHHHHH!!!!!... "The Suite Life"
That's what your pets will experience at Barks & Tales when they spend their night in a cozy B&T type suite, complete with their bed.
Overnight guests will play and romp with other guests all day and then be shown to their own suite at night. Before bedding down for the night each guest will be taken outside for a last "relief trip" and then escorted back to their suite where they'll be tucked in with a treat.
Parents are encouraged to bring any items from home that they fell will make their pet more comfortable.
Barks & Tales recommends that parents bring their pet's own food for their stay. A sudden change in diet can cause stomach upset and diarrhea which will add to your pet's stress. We will, however provide food for our guests if that is your choice. Feeding is done according to your instructions.
Fore those pets who take medications in pill or drop form... no problem! We will ensure that their medication is taken as scheduled. At Barks & Tales we do our best to accommodate all of our guests.
Our boarding drop off and pick up hours are Monday to Saturday from 8:30am to 5:30pm.
If you decide to bring your pets own food, boarding will be starting at $25 per small breed (up to 20 lbs.), $30 per medium breed (up to 40lbs.) and $35 per large breed (up to 60lbs.), this includes 2 to 3 walks a day (depending on the weather) and we will provide your pets own food. If we have to supply our own food to your pet, there will be a $5 charge per night to your pet's stay with us.
Let's face it - there are many times when we have to leave our pets alone during the day while we take care of our own obligations. The sad-eyed look they give us as we walk out the door, is enough to tear your heart out!. Some people pay up to $20 per hour for a pet sitter to walk and spend a short period of time with their pets. Why do that when daycare is available?
The term "pet daycare" describes a supervised environment in which pets play off-leash with other pets. Pet daycare is a service for busy parents who want to provide their pet with exercise, playtime and socialization. You can have peace of mind knowing your pet will be well cared for and having fun during the day while you are out. No more guilt!
All guest are given a nap and feeding time between 12:00pm and 2:00pm. When you pick up your pet from daycare you will be greeted by a happy, contented friend who is now ready to relax with their parents.
Our Daycare hours are Monday to Saturday from 8:30am to 6:00pm. Daycare services are $18 a day per dog, this includes and 2 walks a day. WE ACCEPT WALK-INS! But its always better to have an Appointment
