About Us

Welcome to Bark and Sparkle

We are a self-service dog wash and grooming salon located in Midlothian, Virginia and strive to be highly active in our community. We partner with rescue groups in the area, dog walking/sitting, training services, vet clinics, and all other kinds of out-door pet friendly events. 

We opened our doors on July 1st, 2013. Although we have been in business for a while we welcome any well-mannered comments and suggestions you might have to help us better serve you. Our goal is to provide you a clean, friendly, and safe environment to wash your pups that won't ruin your back, your bathroom, or your yard!

Here at Bark and Sparkle we believe that no pup should have to miss out on their very own spa day. It does not matter if your pup has a disability, health conditions, high anxiety, or behavioral issues that might have proven troublesome at other salons. We will work with you to ensure the safety and comfort of your pet and everyone involved. We are also a non-breed discriminatory establishment.

Bark and Sparkle offers quality dog grooming with great customer service.  We enjoy helping our dog lovers learn how to properly care for their dog’s coats between grooms and ensure each groom appointment ends with a great looking, happy, and healthy pup.  

We also offer a Homebound Paws Service.  This service is provided for senior citizens or the physically disabled who cannot bring their dogs to us but still want to get their companion/best friend groomed.  We provide transport to and from our location. Contact us for more information.

Please enjoy your visit to our site and do not hesitate to contact us.

Groomers & Front Staff

Here at Bark and Sparkle we have four wonderful groomers, with a total of more than 40 years experience in the grooming industry. They are very passionate about their work and take pride in making your beloved pet look and feel their best. Our groomers are more than happy to address any questions or concerns you may have about caring for your pup’s coat between grooms and what diet you should feed to keep your pup’s coat healthy.
