People Are Talking!

I am so grateful for my experience at the Barking Spa Academy of Pet Grooming. The staff is very knowledgeable and very caring. The instructor is amazingly talented. She taught me everything I need to know to be able to begin my journey in pet grooming. She has a true connection with every animal she works with and they respond to her so positively because she earns their trust. I think that is one of the most important things I have learned as it always begins with trust and a genuine love for the profession. Now that my classes are over, I know I am going to miss going to the Barking Spa as every day was such a pleasureable experience.

The Barking Spa is the greatest grooming place in New Jersey! I have brought my dog to many places and there is no other place in Middlesex County where the employees are as well trained and experienced as they are at the Barking Spa. The place is so clean you could eat off the floor! The owner of the Barking Spa is very nice and very knowledgeable about her line of work. They take pride in what they do at the Barking Spa. I was very happy and will be back soon! Thank you to all the staff!

The schooling was a great experience for myself. The time spent working with these people made me a better person and showed me what devotion to this line of work can give back to the community and to ones self even when it involves friendly and loyal pets that we treat as if they were a part of our own families. All the employees made me feel like I was at home every day and not one day was wasted. I have learned so much and would do it all over again. Thank you for everything!

After researching a number of schools in the area, I decided to attend the Barking Spa School of Grooming. I know I made the right decision. I feel that I learned a lot more and in a quicker time period than any of the other schools. The staff is very easy to work with, friendly, knowledgeable and encouraging. I feel their teaching ability is second to none. After finishing school I got a job immediately and felt very comfortable working on my own with what I had learned. All in all, it was a very positive experience and if you are looking to get in this field, I would highly recommend the Barking Spa Academy of Grooming.

I brought my lab named Buddy to the Barking Spa and they did an amazing blowout which removes the undercoat, I didn't see hair for weeks around my house. The nails were filed just right, they cleaned the ears and hand-scissored the pads..they did a great job. Thank you to the Barking Spa Inc.!
