About Us

We believe that to create a positive experience for your pampered pooch, a salon must encourage and support each dog so that they enjoy every visit. Before this, we want to create a salon built on quality of service, using the best products and resulting in your dog having an individual experience. Therefore, a seven point health check will be included as part of the grooming process.


Having achieved the Canine Industry acclaimed qualifications of Level 2 and Level 3 City and Guilds in dog grooming, my commitment and dedication to the welfare of dogs within the grooming salon is my passion and promise.

Dogs are our passion, having owned many dogs so far, our ambition has always been to work closely within the canine industry and offer a service to the village and the surrounding areas.

So Why Barclay & Babs?

We pondered for many months, trying to think of a name for the salon, we finally settled on blending the names of our own dogs. Barclay, a handsome Black Labrador, some say, the best dog in the world, sadly now departed but who lives on with us in spirit and now even more so as part of the business..

Barbara (Babs)

Our Australian Labradoodle, she loves people, loves her ball and loves really long walks. Babs loves life and we have so much joy being with her everyday. Babs has a very distinctive coat, luckily she does not shed any hair, so we love to play around with her look. You can follow Babs’s Blog from the Home Menu where you can see some of the dogs that come into the salon for a pamper, she will post photos, news on products and her day to day diary.


Also has input, he will spread his eternal wisdom by posting top tips and advice through his “Bright ideas” column.
So welcome to Barclay and Babs, a full service dog grooming parlour and a new destination to pamper you beloved pooch. We very much look forward to meeting you.
