Dog Groomers

Places to take dogs when they need to look their very best!

Bark Avenue

Bartlett, IL.

Bark Avenue’s goal is to make grooming a pleasant experience for both you and your dog. When your dog is groomed by their experienced groomers, your dog will enjoy one on one attention the entire time. There is no long waiting for their turn to get bathed, no cage drying, no long waiting to be picked up, in fact, there is no long waiting for anything. Each dog is bathed individually and then hand-blown dry. They take special precautions to keep the noise and air of the dryer out of your dog’s ears because they have yet to find a dog that likes it!  They tailor their grooming to fit your dog’s needs and are experienced with grooming dogs of all sizes.
