Qualified Dog Grooming: International Certified Master Groomer (ICMG UK)

We are an International Certified Master Groomer UK salon. This is a prestigious distinction that we wear with pride. Our team also holds City & Guilds qualifications and actively attend grooming events and competitions across the country.

Micro-bubble Oxygen Spa Treatment

If your dog suffers from any skin ailment including hot spots, itchy paws or chronic and recurring ear infection, we are able to provide a micro-bubble oxygen spa treatment. Please speak to our groomers to find out more.

Safety, security, health and welfare are the top priorities for your pet at our salon. We are celebrating 10 years this year and hope you agree that we are a tried, tested, respected part of the Kensal Rise and Queen’s Park community and beyond.

Regular grooming benefits your dog’s health and welfare

Our aim is to partner with you in the ongoing care and treatment of your dog’s skin, coat and dental health. We are privileged to share in the joy of keeping your loved dog looking and feeling good.

Please ask our groomers to show you tips and tricks to staying on top of your dog’s coat with regular brushing!

To book an appointment

Please ring the salon directly on 020 8964 3231. Please book early - we are often fully booked a week or two in advance.

First time? A non-refundable deposit of £20 will be taken per dog for all first-time appointments (the £20 will be paid against your overall grooming fee). We do not normally take bookings by email or social media (but you can reach us on hello@justbarking.co.uk ).

To cancel an appointment: 24-hours notice please!

If we don’t get 24-hours notice by email or telephone, we lose money because it doesn’t give us a chance to re-book that appointment (wages still need to be paid..) . We’ll try our best to remind you by text or email about your appointment beforehand and may ask you to pay a £20 non-refundable deposit for your next appointment. With regret: repeat offenders will be asked to find another groomer.
