Yay!!! I am so happy with our experience at The Bark & Collar! I messaged them (along with a few other grooming businesses) on Yelp for a quote and they had the most prompt and friendly response and answered all of my questions and even sent a photo of the products they use on the pups! Loved that and their great reviews so I decided we would give them a try and I'm so glad I did!

They squeezed us in for a last minute appointment and stayed past closing time to finish up my pups haircut. They were so great!!! I told them about an awful experience I had with taking my parents dog to another groomer in Poway *cough cough The Buried Bone* and had to take their dog to the vet after... it was such a horrible experience and ever since then I have been really scared to take my dogs to a groomer. But with that being said you can trust The Bark & Collar to take care of your pups. They are accommodating, sweet, patient and go above and beyond to make sure you and your pup have a great experience! After dropping my dog off, they were nice enough to text me an update telling me Remy was doing great and they were just about to start his haircut. Gave me such peace of mind!

When I picked him up he was wagging his tail and was happy and looking suuuuper cute with his new haircut/bandana on and thats all I needed to see to know that this will be our go-to groomer :) They even said they got to run around and play with him in the back (fenced area I think?) and said he was a good boy which I am kind of surprised haha!! This was his first time being groomed and I wasn't sure how he would do but I am happy to hear it went well! Now he smells SOOO good and has a great new cut. I love how they paid attention to detail and trimmed the not-so-glorious part of him too. (His pee/pee area butt area and everything!) I will be taking my other dog here too now, no doubt! So happy to have found a great groomer!!! Thanks so much Bark & Collar You da best!

Oh my goodness!! I cannot day enough good things about this business. So happy with our experience at The bark & collar!! We have taken our baby Layla to many groomers but have never been very satisfied. Looking at reviews I decided to reach out to see if I could get a last minute appointment same day. I used request a quote and sent a picture of my dog and exactly what I wanted to the owner that got back to me in 5 minutes! He got me in just a few hours later!

My boyfriend took her in and said how professional and clean the place was and felt comfortable leaving her there. When going to pick her up we were greeted by the owner and her groomer who both commented on her and how she was playing with a toy rope in her (large) fenced area! Said she would throw the rope over the fence and that they played! Warms my heart because she always seemed unhappy leaving the groomers and she could not stop wagging her tail. They even ended up giving us the rope she loved so much

The grooming job was wonderful and I'm so happy they listened to exactly what we wanted. She smelled great and they even added a bandana to her look. So cute!!!! Thank you for taking such good care of our Layla. Defiantly will return and have found our forever groomer

I have a pit bull mix and he such a well behaved dog! The problem is, his breed seems to scare people. I was able to take him here and they treated him with such love and respect! Candace has a special touch; she made my dog feel comfortable and relaxed even while trimming his nails. I will definitely keep going out of my way to bring him here.

Great place with an awesome location. Right next to shops, ice cream and a great family restaurant! Plenty to do while your pets are being pampered. Very friendly staff and they offer a first responder/military discount!

We have never taken our dogs to a groomer before but decided it was finally time. We have two pugs who shed horribly. One has anal gland problems. They gave our dogs an excellent experience and treated them as one of their own. Fantastic spot if you need a multitude of things done for your furry friend. 10/10 would recommend.

I have a new favorite dog groomer here in Poway!! They just opened in Old Poway Park and have a beautiful nice wide open spacious Doggy salon with no hidden cubby holes for you to wonder, what is my dog doing back there?? The owners Michael and Kandice are very sweet and will cuddle and love your pets while offering the best pet services and grooming!! My pups got the basic bathe and trim for an extremely reasonable price. First time visit and I received a discount!! They also offer hours that a friendly to a full time worker. I love this place. . Welcome to poway!!

The Bark and Collar is a really great new pet salon in Poway! The staff is super friendly and our two Golden Doodles have never looked better after Kandice gave them their baths and superior haircuts on both of our boys!! This is our new favorite pet salon! It's a really great feeling knowing that we can drop our dogs off and not worry about them, because they truly care about their clients and our pets! And...they're open on SUNDAY'S!!! How convenient is that?!?!
