The Barking Lot always does an excellent job on our difficult Siberian Huskey. Great prices and nice people, we have tried others and nothing compares.
— Yelp Review | Suzanne S. | La Mesa, CA

This is a great place! My dog is so scared of other grooming locations but he walks right in here with no issues! That is a huge positive sign in my book.
— Yelp Review | Danica H. | La Mesa, CA

Took my 2 yr old golden here for a trim and a bath for the first time. SHE LOOKED AMAZING AFTERWARDS! She was super soft and super clean. The staff was really friendly too!
— Yelp Review | Julie D. | La Mesa, CA

This place is the best! Extremely friendly and polite staff. I have a yorki, jack russell and a chihuahua that they take excellent care of! And their prices are so reasonable too. My pets always come out looking like a million bucks!
— Yelp Review | Armando A. | La Mesa, CA

The Barking Lot is hands down the best, most caring groomer our dogs have ever been to! They always work to get you in quickly, do a fantastic job and are wonderful with my pets.
