Barkers of Middleton is a dog grooming salon based in Middleton, Greater Manchester, for all your dog grooming needs in a friendly, caring environment.

My ethos is provide a clean, safe, and welcoming environment in which even the most nervous dogs can feel at ease.

My name is Naomi and I am a city & guilds qualified and insured pet stylist based in Middleton, Manchester. In 2013 I decided to turn my love for all things furry into a career in dog grooming! I provide a professional styling and grooming service to ensure your dog is kept clean, healthy and a pleasure to live with. Whatever the service you require, I can tailor a package to suit both you and your pet and I groom only to the very highest professional standards, recognising that each dog is an individual.

Your pets welfare and happiness is my number one priority and each dog will receive my undivided care and attention. I want to make the grooming process as fun and stress free as possible from the moment your dog arrives at the salon!

At Barkers we don’t use cages and all pets are dried with hand held dryers.

Our stylists hold city and guilds qualifications with many years of hands on experience. We strictly adhere to animal welfare codes of conduct as set out in the animal welfare act 2006 and follow compassionate handling and grooming techniques at all times, we are fully insured and hold pet first aid certification, But ....above all else we share a passion and love for all dogs!

We also offer a wide range of products including a holistic premium dog food range, all natural treats, brain teasing toys, teddies, clothing, collars leads, grooming tools, pet fragrance, and home baked dog treats.

All dogs should be introduced to the grooming process at as early an age as possible, as soon as they have been immunised and are allowed out they should visit a professional groomer for their first puppy groom! This is part of essential early socialisation and ensures they accept grooming as part of a regular routine and that they are happy and content with the process.

In general a clean pet is a happy pet! No hair in the eyes, clean fur and skin, clipped nails and clean teeth all make for a pet that is comfortable and well behaved.

Neglect to have your pet regularly groomed and you will see some serious side effects occur such as

Matted and dirty coats
Underlying skin conditions
Hair growing in and around the eyes - this will clog with bacteria and can cause infections.
Excess ear hair, clogs with wax and dirt, a breeding ground for bacteria and a cause of ear infections
Parasites thrive and often go undetected on un-groomed pets
Over grown nails can be very painful & damage the foot profile
Dental disease, which can affect the liver and other organs

Took my Loui for a scrub up and (problematic) nails done. He is petrified of anyone touching his nails. As I sat waiting in the Parents waiting room biting my nails, Naomi’s patience and attitude won him over and he came back a happy chappie. I honestly can’t thank you enough Naomi and you can look forward to seeing Loui in a months time😜😘 PATRICIA LYNN TAYLOR

My Tilly had been badly treated at another place,and so she wouldn’t let anyone cut her hair. Then Naomi won her around and calmed her nerves. I’m just so chuffed that I don’t need to worry about my dog when I drop her off! She does fantastic hair cuts, super friendly and I would absolutely recommend her to everyone! KATHERINE WARDE
