Hello I’m Emily and I am the owner of Bark Club. I provide a friendly & professional dog grooming service from my studio, which is set in a quiet countryside environment only 1.5 miles from Tain town centre.
I’ve grown up with several different animals as pets – birds, hamsters, lizards, ferrets, lambs, African snails, stick insects and of course, lots of dogs! This solid understanding of animals made it apparent to me from a young age that working within this industry is something I’d enjoy doing and be comfortable with. So after grooming my own four legged friends for a few years, I went on to do my relevant training & qualifications and took the plunge to establish Bark Club in 2017. I am now a member of professional bodies such as The British Groomers Association & Pet Industry Federation and I attend seminars & courses on a regular basis to keep learning and improving.
This is Jacqueline and her two fur babies, Maddie & Timbo! Jacqueline joined the Bark Club Team in October 2020 and is fitting right in here. She typically baths, blow-drys & preps the pooches before they go to Emily for clipping and styling – teamwork makes the dream work after all! You’ll catch Jacqueline at reception smiling, playing and cuddling with the dogs. We work on an individual basis with all dogs meaning they get our undivided attention.
We don’t typically allow any dogs to cross paths within our groom room unless they come from the same home or know one another, to avoid any upsets or unnecessary stress. If your dog does get a bit anxious or reactive around other dogs or unfamiliar situations, please let us know and we will book out a “quiet session” so they can have the whole studio to themselves. We do our utmost to create a relaxed environment with calming dog aromatherapy and music. We strongly believe that every dog deserves the best which is why we take a holistic approach to grooming.
We only use high-quality natural, organic and safe products which will not only leave a great finish but will also help care for and protect your pets overall health.
You can be assured your furry friends are in good hands and treated like one of our own throughout their pampering at Bark Club.
