Welcome to the Hairy Barker...

Hello, my name is Sandy and I am the proud owner of The Hairy Barker Inn & Spa. I have loved dogs all my life and began grooming my own cocker spaniel, Sniffs Barney about 25 years ago. I went on from there to grooming my friends dogs and then...

A few years ago, I decided to make a life altering change and enrolled in grooming school. Since graduating The Connecticut School of Dog Grooming I have attended many grooming seminars and taken countless classes to improve my grooming skills and add to my canine knowledge base.

The Hairy Barker Philosophy

All dogs no matter their age or difficulty level are handled with a gentle approach.  We all want to eliminate stress in our lives and nothing does that better than time spent loving a dog. Your dog is a part of your family and will be a part of ours as well. The time your pet spends at THB is not just about being groomed because dogs in our care are given lots of love and attention.

The shop’s atmosphere is relaxed and happy. The Hairy Barker is a cage free grooming salon. We use earth-friendly products that are tailored to a dog's individual needs and we work with you to keep your pet happy and healthy.
