Have had my golden retriever Cody groomed by Melissa now for a good number of years and although he is almost 12 years of age he still loves to go to have his haircut and especially enjoys his bit of fuss that he gets when he is there from Melissa, she is a true dog lover and always does a fabulous job and people often comment on how nice and clean he looks after he has been groomed. The new shop she has opened is great and our dog loves the home made biscuits that she stocks. I would recommend Barks and Bows to anyone who loves their dog.

Barks ‘n’ Bows never fails to surpass our expectations, whether it is preparing our Golden Retrievers for Championship Shows or just pampering our Labrador and older Golden Retriever with a relaxing bath and trim. Along with the unfailing professional attitude demonstrated by the Barks ‘n’ Bows team, the immaculately clean, modern grooming salon provides clients with total reassurance that a superior service will be delivered and that their dogs will be returned to them in immaculate condition. I would without any hesitation recommend Barks ‘n’ Bows to fellow dog owners!



I have had both of my golden retrievers groomed by Melissa at barks and bows. First class job, I have also used the self service dog wash, oh what a joy, no more bending over a bath breaking my back, no more soaking wet bathroom floor and sopping wet towels, all you need right there, shampoo, towels, brushes and a dryer. highly recommend.



I have been taking two of my dogs to Mel for over 2 years, to trim them to show standard, and cannot fault her service. She is always very professional, efficient and caring. Above all, her passion and love of dogs is obvious, and treats them accordingly. I have already recommended this business to a number of people as it is second to none.

What a fantastic service, it’s just what our area needed. I take Oscar to the self service dog wash, everything is provided you only need to take your dog. So convenient and plus Oscar loves Mel as she always makes a fuss of the dogs. She also does a fab job grooming. Would definitely recommend Barks and Bows!



Mell groomes Ruby and poppy to such a high standard everyone comments on how lovely they look she loves all the dogs and they love her a true professional

I have been a client of Melissas for several years and find her level pf professionalism and quality of service to be outstanding. My dogs truly enjoy their hour of pampering and Mel is clearly herself a dog lover who genuinely loves her job. I have recommended her to many family and friends who are now themselves regular clients.My dogs always come home looking and smelling lovely and are very happy to see Mel whenever they go there. The installation of self service dog washes can only serve to enhance her business further and I look forward to giving them a try after one of our many muddy dog walks.



I have been taking my yorkie to Melissa for 8 years now ..busta is not your typical yorkie ..I have him cut like a schnauzer !!..he always looks and smells amazing ..thanks Melissa ..wish I could show you all a photo of him !!



I have used this service for a few years now. The service I received at Barks n Bows was very professional and of a high standard throughout. Would recommend others to use the service as you and your dogs are always made to feel very welcome



I strongly recommend Barks n Bows. Very friendly well priced and get this you can also pop in and wash your own Dogs for a small fee which is great no appointment needed just stroll in. been taking my two dogs for Years I wouldn’t trust anyone else with them.



I have been taking Juke my English Springer Spaniel to Melissa at Barks & bows for Years. Her passion & love for her own dogs show through her work. Juke is nervous when it comes to his paws but Mel as always been patient & makes him feel at ease. Outstanding service



From the moment we arrived with our 15 year old collie who cannot stand for more than a few minutes, we were greted by the owners husband who fussed our old boy and made him wee everywhere oooppsss!! But it wasn’t a problem it was mopped up like it was normal and off buster went for a self service wash, Mel the fabulous owner helped my husband with what we needed to do and all the lovely washes and hairdryer and perfume sprays at the end!!! My old man can’t stand for long as he has arthritis and this wasn’t a problem in the self service wash as he could lie down and my husband could wash him in a huge style bath �� A clear family of dog lovers this is a business that I’d love to have myself! It’s a fab place full of love ❤️ my buster boy left smelling amazing (not for long lol) fluffy and happy definatly a monthly treat for my old man we will be back soon as he was made to feel like a king and to us he is



I’ve been using Barks ‘n’ Bows for around 7 years and wouldn’t trust my dogs with anyone else! Friendly and professional, can’t recommend highly enough!
