Dina was so gentle and kind with our pit mastiff that we take her back for baths and nail trimming.
Not the cheapest but the pooch always looks good and comes home happy. Staff very friendly and easy to deal with, happy to accommodate your schedule.
The most wonderful loving place around for your grooming needs. You can really tell these people, especially Dina, does this work for the genuine love of pets. We’ll always choose this place!
Love the customer service and friendly staff. Very easy to book an appointment as well, which to me is always the best.
Outstanding service! I was nervous about trying a new grooming place but after emailing and speaking with the lovely owner, Dina, my nerves were settled and the adventure began. I love that there is a parking garage, but was able to find a meter out front. My 2 Goldendoodles needed a major make over and shave down. One is 7 and the other was only 9 months and had never been groomed. They both looked and smelled amazing! So much attention and time was given to them. Both groomers came out before and after, which was a wonderful way to build a relationship in front of the dogs and to hear how it went. They both listened and were honest. It truly is a “Gentle” grooming place! And there are so many good food and treats to purchase! There was no cage, which I am grateful for, but instead a little waiting area for the dogs before and after. I highly recommend Barkhouse! More...
Dina and barkhouse are the absolute best.
Love barkhouse they take great care of our sweet pup!
The owner is a wonderfully woman who shows a great love for the pets they groom. The staff a good at what they do. There so good with my dog chunky. He's blind and there so attentive to his needs. More...
I have a large, nervous, white, FURRY dog that sheds a ton. Like an insane amount. About 4 years ago I took him to his 1st groomer ever in PB. Mostly bc washing and drying him is simply exhausting. My pup never really enjoyed going to the place in PB, but the groomer (see below) always did a fantastic job...my requirements: I want it done fast (I wait for him nearby), I want him clean, DRY, and I want him DESHED. Let me stress that....I want as much fur as possible combed out so it doesn't look like winter in Aspen all over my house. For personal reasons, his groomer took a break and I never felt comfortable taking him back to the PB location after that. Tried multiple groomers in La Jolla & in Point Loma and for various reasons they were not a good fit long term.Through a weird twist of fate the original groomer reached out to me and mentioned she was now working at Barkhouse.**HER NAME IS ANA** and she is da BOMB!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I didn't even fully really realize how good she was until I picked him up today after his wash/dry/deshed- which was completed in under an hour!! I can run my hands all over him and there's no fur falling off whatsoever. THIS GIRL WORKS MIRACLES. I don't think I realized how good a job she had been doing all those years ago, but having tried the rest and coming back to her, I know I have the best. The facility is open and clean, and all the other staff I met were very nice. (Note...I do not have nails, teeth, or anal glands done, nor do I having any cutting or shaving)...so factor that into your time expectations). More...
My dog has never been so calm during a grooming! She was really worked up on the way here but is calm and happy as can be. The staff is very courteous and friendly! Our new home for grooming! More...
I think her name is Deanna, she is amazing. She knows dogs and all her product. I had a gift certificate for my first dog wash visit and she treated me and my dog like we're her best clients. I have recommended her to all my dog friends. Really give this place a try. My other friend gets her Golden groomed here and she lives it. My one drawback was the lack of parking, but that's just me.

Amazing owners and staff. It's the only place we take our dog to get a wash, and he absolutely loves going there. Would definitely recommend great service and reasonable price wise.
Rupert loves them.
I went there a while a go and my pup charles smelled really nice for a few days until he got messy (you know how puppies are) i will definitely revisit them over petsmart tbh.
Vaughn has been my dog groomer for 12 years and always does a great job.
Barkhouse is the absolute best! We were new to San Diego and took our pup to 2 groomers that we weren't satisfied with but then we found Barkhouse! They are so kind, do an excellent job grooming and give top notch customer service! The owner and staff are so sweet and I feel 110% good about leaving my pup here to be pampered. They are cage free and by appointment so your dog is not there all day waiting for his/her turn. They also have self serve baths as well with great products. They are very knowledgable and treat every dog with such compassion and love! Such a wonderful place, wish I could give 10 stars. Good job Barkhouse! Thank you for all you do. More...
The only place my dog is not afraid to go. She usually trembles and cries when arriving to groomers, but not here! They LOVE their furry clients, and provide lots of treats and affection as they work. The groom is always lovely as well. Very high standards that have been consistent since they opened. More...
So great! They treat your dog with care and are super sensitive to their needs!
This is a fantastic grooming place! Clean, cage free, super friendly and pro. Dogs were not stressed out and they look amazing! Thank you!
Love the people
Best place for trimming those dog nails!
Great place, caring staff. It's a little pricey but it is Hillcrest
They were so helpful when we brought our bath-hating pup for a grooming. They got us set up in the tub, offered very helpful tips throughout her bath, and checked in on us the entire time we were there. She also offered our anxious pooch treats throughout to help calm her down. They are so courteous and we will continue to support such a user-friendly business in our neighborhood. Thanks! More...
Best grooming shop in Hillcrest. Whether self-serve or full serve, the facility is clean, the staff are friendly, and the prices are reasonable.
Love these guys. Great people... true pet lovers.
Barkhouse was awesome. I took an older dog there today and they were super helpful. They took a lot of time to show me where everything was and made great suggestions to get him clean, how many times to wash, how to dry, how to best get rid of all the hair he was shedding, and also helped with some concerns of dry skin I found. They have pet cologne and options of shampoos and treats throughout the whole process. Most of all they are just super helpful people. Very warm and clearly love pets and know a lot about them. I highly recommend checking out Barkhouse. More...
I've gone here many times since the opened in the last month or two. They're great! My pups love walking in to treats, love and good nah products. Definitely worth checking out!
Great place with very friendly staff, we took our Lab Emma for a self wash. Prices are reasonable and they have 3 drying stations which is included with your wash and 3 or 4 baths. Nice thing about their drying stations is that they blow warm air unlike the other self wash places we have gone too. More...
