About Us

Linda Tew
Owner of Bark and Sparkle

Linda has a bachelor’s degree in business from Averett University and is a Sr. Financial Analyst for Dominion VA Power. She is also President of K9 Rescue of VA. Linda’s commitment to helping homeless dogs find forever homes led her to pursue other ways to serve her community and their pets. Through Bark and Sparkle Linda is able to ensure pet owners in Chesterfield County have access to professional grooming as well as a way to wash their own dog with ease and no clean up.

Linda envisions Bark and Sparkle becoming a major contributor to the community. She strives to provide personalized, widely available care and our Homebound Paws program is the first of many steps to giving back to our community. She believes that the faster we grow, the faster we can give back. The scripture that Linda tries to live by is Matthew 25: 37 - 40

Denise Flora
Denise first became interested in training when she realized no-one was having fun in a class she was attending with her beagle/terrier mix. She believed then--and still believes now--that training should be fun and stress free for the pup and pet parent. She strives to provide pawsitively fun experiences for all her students. She took the Canine Logic & Advanced Canine Logic courses as the Richmond SPCA and studied dog training and behavior at Penn Foster Career School. She has read numerous books on training and behavior and has volunteered at shelters, namely RAL.

Denise is an AKC Canine Good Citizen Evaluator and lives with two wonderful CGC herself. She is excited to be part of the Bark & Sparkle team.

And lets not forget our GROOMERS.  

Here at Bark and Sparkle we have four wonderful groomers, with a total of more than 50 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. Is your pup suffering from hot spots, dry flaky skin, or excessive shedding? Our groomers can help you overcome these concerns as well!

Pictures of these ladies will be posted soon!
