Bark Avenue Grooming Salon
My mom and I have 5 frenchies between us, and they ALL go to Jo at Bark Avenue because she is the best! She treats our pups like they are her own. I cant believe people have commented about her attire....she works around dirty dogs and pet hair all day!!! Should she wear a dress, slacks, a suit perhaps? Who cares what she wears...she is taking care of our animals people, not entering a fashion show. What I care about is how my dogs are treated and how well they are groomed. My pups always look great, smell great, get to play, get held and loved on, etc. That's what I care about! Hooray for Bark Avenue and thank you Jo for all your hard work that goes into giving our neighborhood a fantastic place to bring our babies!!!!!

Brought my akita to bark avenue on advice of a friend. The absolute best decision I've ever made! I'm very particular about the sheen of my dog's coat. The owner assured me I would be amazed. And let's just say from now on, Bark Avenue is the only place I will bring my dog to!!! Kudos to this place and a special thank you to the owner who spent her time to answer all my questions.

Tips & Advices
Some pet groomers have viewing areas where owners can sit and watch their pets being treated. Most prevent owners from being in the same room as the pet, however, as the owner's presence might cause the pet to become too excited.
Pets that cannot interact with strangers do not make good professional grooming candidates. Sometimes medication can help, but some groomers don't take animals that have been sedated. If a pet becomes too unruly, a groomer may end the session entirely.
It's best to fully vaccinate pets before bringing them to their first grooming appointment. Dogs should receive the DA2PPC vaccine, which stands for canine distemper, canine andenovirus type 2, canine parvovirus, and parainfluenza. It's also a good idea to vaccinate dogs against Bordedatella (aka “kennel cough”). In fact, New York City requires dogs receive both DAPP and Bordetella shots. Cats, meanwhile, should get the FVRCP vaccine: feline viral rhinotracheitis, calicivirus infection, and panleukopenia. In addition, all pets should be up to date on their rabies shots. Owners should wait at least 24 hours after getting their pet vaccinated before bringing it to the groomers.
Technically, there is no such thing as a pet that is too old for a professional groomer. In fact, older pets with joint or mobility issues often can't groom themselves and need someone else to clean them. However, pets that are blind, deaf, or have serious medical issues might not do well at a groomer, especially if the person is inexperienced. Owners should feel free to ask potential groomers about their understanding of elderly pet issues. Often, older pets will exhibit puppy-like behavior and squirm or yelp during grooming. Alternatively, they might not be able to stand for long periods of time. As such, grooming an older pet usually takes more time than grooming a young one.
Puppies and kittens should be at least 10 weeks old before their first professional grooming session. They should be used to being gently handled by strangers and comfortable being separated from their owners for a few hours at a time.
