Dogs Need Pampering Too!
Give your dog the treatment he or she deserves!


We run on dog time – Which equates to stress-less grooming!


Hi. My name is Valerie and I am the proud owner of Barking Mad Grooming. I have been a Master Groomer for quite some time now. When I am not in the salon, I am at home with two Soft Coated Wheaten Terriers, both NZ Champions, which I have personally shown. To say that I love dogs and that I have a great wealth of knowledge regarding their well-being, is an understatement.

90% of the time, I work on my own. Two days a week, I work with a lovely woman who is studying to be a Master groomer. She shares my love of animals and appreciates the way I run my salon. After having worked in bigger, corporate grooming chains, I am quite happy to be running a small dog grooming business out of my home. I am not concerned about turning a profit or quick turn-around times.

Barking Mad Grooming runs on dog time. I don’t have crates in my salons, as I believe the dogs should run free. This also means I never give a pick up time. Every dog is different and has different needs. Sometimes during the grooming, a dog may need a rest.

I will never rush a dog through the grooming process. I will text Mum and Dad when their beloved pet is ready. I also make sure that dogs with a timid nature are scheduled to be in the salon on their own. If the dogs are happy, I’m happy.
