Central Bark is proud to offer a wide range of bathing and grooming options for dogs of all shapes and sizes. 

PROFESSIONAL GROOMING (Burlingame location only):  Siobhan and Iku, our experienced, professional groomers work by appointment 7 days a week to return your dog to his or her former glory. In addition to their experience and talent, they both excel at making the dogs in their care as happy and comfortable as possible. We offer three levels of grooming service:

Bath and Brush: A professional shampoo and conditioning, full coat brush out, and thorough blow dry.  Nails get dremeled or trimmed, ears cleaned and anal glands get expressed if needed. 

Bath, Brush and Trim: All of the above, including a hair trim (no matter how much length we cut) on just a few areas of the body. 

Full Haircut: All of the above, plus a full haircut (no matter how much length we cut) over the entire body.

At your initial consultation, simply tell Siobhan or Iku what you would like to have done and they will work their magic. We keep files on all clients to insure any future appointments will result in consistent quality, or we can use the notes as a basis for comparison should you choose to make any changes from one appointment to the next.  

WE BATHE (Both locations): Is your dog just a little stinky, but doesn't need a full-service groom? Looking for something a little simpler and less expensive, and something you don't have to schedule days in advance? Have one of our daycare staff give your dog a quick bath, brush and blow-dry. While they won't look quite as perfect as a groomer would make them look, your dog will come away looking and smelling clean. Just in time for them to go out and get dirty all over again! Our daycare staff can also trim your dog's nails so you don't have to. 

SELF-SERVE DOG WASH (Burlingame location only): Feel like saving a few bucks and doing it yourself, but don't want to turn your bathroom into a furry disaster? Visit our Burlingame location and use our state of the art self-serve dog wash room. We have everything you will need to make your dog beautiful again. And the best part? We will clean up after you! PLEASE NOTE: All self wash baths must be finished by 5pm M-F and 4:30p weekends. See the rates page for more information.

Here are some of our happy grooming customers!
