“Their new location is extremely cute and and a perfect one stop shop for boarding and grooming.”
“Charlie always looks beautiful when I pick him up from being groomed and now the 'icing on the cake' is for Charlie to participate in Doggie Day Care!”
“The facility is always clean and offers such a wide variety of services, it is truly a one stop shop!”
“If you are looking for a great place to groom or board your dogs, you should give them a call.”
“The service is great, the place is very clean, they really care about the dogs as well as their owners!”
“They've recently moved into a huge building with lots of space for boarding & play areas for all animals.”
“They are also very accommodating with last minute grooming appts, which is very helpful.”
I will NOT be taking my dog to this place after reading these horrible reviews. It angers me that people will treat innocent dogs so terribly. It's hard to find a good place that will actually take care of your dog.
I love Barks 5th Avenue. When I recently moved to Houston, I was attracted to this shop because it had a similar name to the one I had used in Las Vegas. I was so pleased and I take my poodle Betty Lou there for grooming. Alisha Spencer also recommended the Instinct Raw dog food for her. I switched her and it is the best decision I ever made. Thanks to Alisha and her wonderful staff I have found a pet grooming and food home in Houston.
Staff was very friendly and knowledgable of "dog intended" products. Helped me decide my diet for my then puppy, Myles, which is grain free/raw food diet. He absolutely loves the duck feet and bully sticks too!!! Utilized the grooming services, Sara was excellent and Myles looked great! It was his very first grooming experience and there were no issues.
I love love this place! They have a very nice facility and the groomer's actually care about the dogs. The last time I took Jeeves to Sarah (one of the groomers) she did an excellent job on my toy schnauzer. She also even suggested a dog food called instinct limited ingredient. My dog loves it and its helped slim down to his fighting weight! This is definitely the place to take your dog big or small.
Our family got a MinPin puppy in March. We tried diligently to train her, but to no avail. She was running the house, going to the bathroom inside and barking obsessively. Though we all love her, she was causing so much stress and chaos that I wasn't sure she was going to be able to remain in our pack. We took her to Barks and though she was a tough nut to crack and it took a little longer than the traditional 3 week puppy boot camp, it was worth every cent. Penny and her team performed nothing short of a real miracle. Today, our puppy is unbelievably well behaved, follows commands and hasn't relieved herself one time inside. The obsessive barking has ceased and she isn't chasing the cats. The family is delighted and there are not enough words to thank Penny. We highly recommend the puppy boot camp and Barks!
BEWARE BEWARE BEWARE. PLZ LISTEN !!!! DO NOT TAKE YOUR PET TO BARKS 5TH AVENUE.....YOU REALLY NEED TO READ AND LISTEN TO THE BAD REVIEWS!!!! THEY ARE REAL..TAKE THIS ADVISE FROM SOMEONE WHO KNOWS.......why do you think that you need to make an apppointment to tour the facility????????
My husband and I had tried to train our dog Lily, but it was without any success. We tried other training techniques, other trainers, we tried everything but still nothing worked. We thought all hope was lost, until we found Barks 5th Avenue. From the moment we walked into the door we knew we were in the right place. The trainer took the time to really speak with us, and made us feel confident that we could do it too. Lily has made a complete change, and its all thanks to Barks 5th Avenue! They not only trained Lily, theyve changed our lives. We now have the perfect dog we always dreamed about. Thank you so much Barks 5th Avenue!
will answer any of your questions. I have been using Barks 5th Avenue for about 9 years--since they were even at another location. Penny and her staff have always made my animals happy to be there. Tedi, my more recent dog, went through Barks' training as a young pup. I was very happy with the results. A year and a half later Tedi still does a great job following her commands--too bad I don't do a better job working with her. Although she knows her commands, she still can hardly do the "right thing" when she sees that we are at the facility. She just can't wait to go see her friends at Doggie Day Care. Patty, Roxanna, Michael and the others know us by sight and Tedi can't wait to show them her affection by wanting to lick--and they tolerate it! lol Both of my dogs have had double coats and trimming them is complicated and labor intensive, but that has never daunted the groomers from doing what I thought would look good. And, the dogs seem happy to look so pretty. I have always recommended not only their facility and services to others, but I also mention all the great types of food they have, including raw products. Tedi likes the different treats that they sell. Don't hesitate to visit Barks 5th Avenue and the great staff. They are very helpful and will answer any of your questions.
made me feel very comfortable. After visiting other grooming salons in my area and having bad experiences with nearly ALL of them, I gave up on hope of finding the right groomer. My dog would come home dehydrated and stressed out. I recently stumbled upon Barks 5th Avenue, read the reviews and decided to give professional grooming another try. The staff was friendly, professional and made me feel very comfortable leaving my baby in a new place. I met the groomer, Merial (not sure of the spelling) and she was very nice, professional, and very detailed. When I picked up my dog I couldn't BELIEVE how good he looked! He literally looked like he could be in a magazine! He was so happy...Merial took such good care of my pup. I will definitely return to Barks 5th Avenue and tell everyone I know about this great facility! If anyone has lost hope like I did, this place is for you!
Treat my dog like a member of their family. I went over many reviews, even did research on my own and asked several vet doctors before I try Barks 5th Avenue. After taking the risk, everything turned out the opposite of what others said. The owner treat my dog like it is one of their own, and the staff take their time to write down things for me. This place is very disability friendly and they write things down for me, because for some reason I can't understand everything. One day my dog was sick, and the owner took responsibilities to take my dog to the vet. Since the owner knew my dog is my life. I was very impressed with Penny's(owner) use professional judgement. We are very pleased with Penny's honestly and model different type of behavior modification that we need to work on. Every dog owner must take some flea preventer, ours did 1x a month, we don't have any fleas problems or the place is dirty? NOPE I disagreed, I stopped by several times and they were clean, I showed up by surprised and ask a tour of the facility. So the best I can say is we are pleased to have a owner who is a champion of dogs to train out dog. We are very pleased, and this is coming from two disabilities individuals who depend on "extension of time" for communications, the staff, the owner and her husband took their time to explain things to us. I know I won't find this professionalism and disability friendly anywhere else. We're thankful and we know in our heart, that if my dog every gets sick or need medical attention, they text me immediately, and keep me on top of the news. I know I won't find this type of exceptional services anywhere. Thank you Barks 5th Avenue for treating my dog like a member of your family too.
