About Us

Just Barking is a locally-owned independent shop featuring a team of professional, qualified pet groomers. We opened our doors in June 2009.

We take an holistic approach to grooming. This means we are able to provide pet styling to breed standards as well as Asian Fusion and Creative grooming, BUT we always operate in your dog's best welfare. Our aim is to partner with you in this - so that your dog can have a healthy, happy, carefree life, and you can rest assured that you are serving your dog with the care and attention of true professionals.

We are happy to provide advice directly to you about grooming, skincare, dental hygiene, recommended products for your dog's breed including advice on food, treats, supplements and more. Please don't hesitate to ring us at our salon in Kensal Rise, West London, on 020 8964 3231. .

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.
