About Us

Barking Barbershop was started by two friends that recognized a need for local grooming with all breeds (including all shapes and sizes of pets). We’ve been in business now for over 20 years and over 30 years of combined experience. We, Judy and Carin, absolutely LOVE our profession.

We are so grateful for the caring professionals at the Barking Barbershop! Each time we bring our dog in for grooming, she is treated with complete kindness! The staff grooms her so carefully, with her nails being trimmed, ears cleaned, using shampoos specifically for her type of hair and skin, cutting the perfect breed style, and tending to every grooming detail. Our dog, Koda, looks forward to going to the Barking Barbershop!

Judy, Carin and staff are the best! They truly love all their furry friends and treat each of them as their own. I know our Pomeranian Gracie is in great hands. She is always excited to go and comes home looking fabulous! I highly recommend The Barking Barbershop!


This is Izzy!  She is a 7 year old schnoodle and she has been going to The Barking Barbershop all her life. She has always been nervous about us leaving her with other people. The girls at the shop always call her by name and make her feel as if she is their family. They do a great job with her haircuts, always asking exactly what we want done each time. And it is so convenient to have the Cottonwood Veterinary clinic there and they take care of all her shots and keep her up to date on everything while she is there. We drive 65 miles just to take her to Judy and staff because of the way she is treated and the great service we get.  Thank you Judy for your caring service to our precious family member.

The Barking Barber is a very caring grooming place. For both dogs and cats. So friendly as you walk in.

I have nothing but great things to say about the team at Barking Barbershop. Our girls love going there and they always come home looking great. They even know how great because they prance around after their grooms. I don’t take the care of our girls lightly and I would only recommend someplace I know they are getting treated like one of their own. Barking Barbershop is that place!  I can’t thank them enough for all they do.

We've been going to Barking Barber for over 11 years. Cashew likes it so much that we have to spell J·U·D·Y in front of him, to say that he likes his spa days is an understatement!

Absolutely love this place! We wouldn't use anyone else to groom our 3 Doodle's. We have been going here for about 3 years and I can't say enough about everyone that works there! They are always friendly, caring and devoted to each individual pet. They all have a way with my pups that makes them feel so comfortable. All 3 love going for their spa day! And they always smell and look SO good! Hands down the best groomer in town!!!

The Dozlers

Our dog Gauge absolutely loves his baths! We ask him if he wants a bath and he whimpers and whines until he gets in the door then he is so excited and knows the routine once he gets there. Everyone is always so welcoming and happy to see him and we know that he is being well cared for while he is there!

The Koster’s

We have been bringing our fur babies to the Barking Barber Shop for over 20 years. Currently Loui (our Himalayan cat) and Sadi (our Pomeranian dog) go to “Spaw” day every 4 weeks. It’s such a treat for them when they go and they look fabulous when they are done. These groomers are the best!!


We moved to Kearney in 2015 and the Gals at BBS are absolutely the best! They love your pet just like you do and take care of them the same. We have a Golden doodle that LOVES going there as soon as we mention it. Very fair prices and excellent service!
