    My Persian cat Delilah needs regular attention and Debs is so wonderful with her and they have a mutual love! Debs is kind and very attentive and diligent. I wouldn’t go anywhere else for grooming. My Cavalier King Charles Oakley also goes for regular grooming and always comes away looking gorgeous and both animals are relaxed and happy. Couldn’t recommend this groomer more!

    Debbie makes our dogs feel so happy and welcome !!! She and her team transform our dogs from street to salon chic with the most wonderful care and attention. They have a complete understanding of not only the anatomy and styles of cut, but a real insight into all dogs personalities and character traits. I couldn’t recommend Debbie and her team highly enough. Fantastic care and service for our lovely furry friends ❤️

    Nd thoughts about me and my team

  • Tanya Parker

    Our two ‘free spirited’ Welsh Terriers visited for a groom whilst staying with their Grandma on holiday in the area! Not only did they look great, they didn’t bite anyone (hard!) and we got some great advice on how to look after their coats. Debs even Went out of her way to recommend a groomer local to us. Despite this recommendation however, we were so impressed with how the dogs looked and how they were looked after by the team at Barking Beauties, that we are travelling back from our home in Gloucestershire next month just to have them groomed again! Thanks so much.

  • Ella Rimmer

    Debbie is the most wonderful dog groomer and has looked after our dog Kenzie all her life! She does an amazing job and I would thoroughly recommend Debbie to anyone

  • Julia Head

    Having moved very recently to Bridge from Whitstable, I was very keen to find my 2 Cavaliers a new doggy groomer to settle in to fast! A friend living in this area straight away recommended Barking Beauties in Barham. The eldest is 12 years old, and has always suffered separation anxiety. He lives on his nerves, making him seem much younger than his years! But i needn't have worried. They were both wagging their tails within minutes of entering the salon, and even better, when i returned 2 hours later, they not only looked beautiful, they were even more relaxed than when i left them! I have already booked them in for 8 weeks time. Thankyou Deborah and Kirsty for the warm welcome and kindness shown to us all today at Barking Beauties.

  • Deborah Whigham

    You are very welcome Julia. We loved having them here

  • Joyce Morander

    Our Scottish Terrier, Douglas, enjoys his regular grooming visits to Barking Beauties. Caring, professional service at all times. Thanks to Debbie and her team!

  • Kevin Maddy

    Our English Springer Sharpe is not the easiest of old boys, but Debbie has loved him and made him feel very safe and welcome for his visits. We are very pleased with the service that he, and we, receive and I would highly recommend Barking Beauties to everyone. Well done Debs and Kirsty, and sorry that Sharpe is a bit grumpy - like his dad!

  • Deborah Griffiths

    Gracie loves her regular trip to Barking Beauties each month and always comes home happy and looking great! I'm always grateful to Deborah and her team for looking after Gracie and doing such a good job of keeping her looking so well groomed and cute!

  • Sarah Baker

    Monty has been coming to Barker no Beauties for nearly 5 years. He is a very anxious dog but he is so well looked after and pampered by all. We love it when he comes back looking like a baby lamb! Thank you for looking after our fluffy pup!

  • Rosemary Wheeler

    Many thanks to Debs, Kirsty and the whole team for all their hard work with Rory our Standard Poodle. He became very anxious after being attacked by another dog last year, but everyone has been very patient and caring and he's made excellent progress. He now loves his trips to the Groomers, and clearly gets lots of love in return, always coming back happy and looking great. Highly recommended.
