At Barkbus we believe that grooming should be about health and wellness, peace of mind and convenience for your furry best friend. To that end, we started Barkbus in 2017 to end traumatic trips to the salon that far too often means your pup is in a cage for hours and stressed from all the other dogs, sights and smells. With Barkbus, our service is one-on-one the entire time, with no cages or other dogs around, and the option of checking in on your fur baby at any time, as we’re right out front! Our state-of-the-art, next generation mobile grooming vans are fully self sufficient and engineered for stress-free grooming!
What is included in the Barkbus Signature service?
Our Signature service includes all of the following at no extra cost: Warm filtered hydro-jet water bath, All-Natural Shampoos, Conditioners and Face Wash, Hand Blow Dry, Brush out, Ear Cleaning, Nail Trimming and Filing, Teeth Brushing, and Anal Gland Expression, if needed. Pricing for the full service varies based on the dog breed, size of the dog and coat condition. Give us a shout to talk specifics for your pup!
How much does Barkbus cost?
Barkbus is competitively priced with all 5-star rated dog grooming services. Price varies based on the size, breed and coat condition of the dog. The all-in price for our Signature service typically ranges from $100-$240. Please contact us to find out your pup’s exact cost as well as any special promotions we may be offering.

How much experience do Barkbus Pet Stylists have?
While we are on demand, this is far from just a gig. All Barkbus Pet Stylists have years of experience in complex grooming, dog safety and breed specific haircuts so we can ensure your fur babies will feel right at home with us. We are a team of professional, compassionate dog lovers and we would love to meet your fur babies. Check out our "About" tabto see the team!
How long does a typical groom take?
Safety is and will always be our number one priority, so we always take our time and never rush a pup’s groom. Our Signature service is far less stressful than traditional salon grooming, so our service takes a fraction of the time. You can expect each appointment to take anywhere from 1 to 2.5 hours depending on dog breed, but please note that since we never rush, it may take more time. The great news is that we are right out front if you ever want to check up on your pup!
My dog has sensitive skin, do you have a shampoo for that?
Yes! Each vehicle carries an array of specialty products such as a gentle oatmeal sensitive skin shampoo, a de-shed conditioner and a blueberry face wash that are included in each service. Just talk with your professional groomer about what is best for your pup!
Will you service my elderly/disabled dog?
We are able to service most elderly & disabled dogs with a few exceptions. Our groomers are one-on-one with your dog in the van and do not have assistants or helpers. Some elderly dogs may have trouble standing on their own for extended lengths of time. In these cases we recommend a groomer who has an assistant, or a veterinarian who can offer sedated grooming services. We also recommend veterinarian assisted grooming for any dog with a history of seizures.
In the best interest and well being of your dog, we will not start any services that we don't feel confident we can safely complete, or that we feel may put too much stress on your dog.
If we are grooming a dog and we believe the service has become too stressful, or any other safety warning present themselves, we will stop the service immediately.
Do you need to plug into my house for water and power?
Absolutely not! Our state-of-the-art, next generation mobile grooming vans are fully self sufficient and engineered for grooming, so we never need to plug into your house for water or power. We have everything we need to pamper your pup and will never leave a drop after the service!
