The Barking Lot's services and commitment are extensive, my basic philosophy is simple: Dogs are remarkable beings which bring us invaluable joy and love; we owe them the respect and care befitting their position in our lives. The Barking Lot's holistic philosophy means I help you care for your whole dog. I understand that health and behaviors are directly linked to exercise, nutrition, and stress levels. Did you know that a proper diet will bolster a dog’s immune system, and can even dramatically affect their behavior? That minimizing stress also minimizes the chances your dog will catch a cold. Regular grooming is an important component of your dog's health. Ungroomed dogs are more at risk of injuries/illnesses going undetected and parasitism. Fleas are never fun for dog or owner!
One of the most important things you can do for your dog is to start grooming early. Accustom your puppy to being handled, including ears, tail and feet. Bring it around The Barking Lot for a visit prior to its first grooming appointment, start them off right.
