Safety and the well-being for your pet is our highest priority, so here at Bark-A-Bout we are set out to be leaders in staff training and development. The development and training of staff /handlers is a continuous process which includes many hours of in-service training both hands-on and text book, participation in workshops, listening to guest speakers and discussions. Each staff/handler goes through monthly testing on canine behavior, daycare handling, and training lessons so everyone on our team is up to date on new topics. They each are required to be certified in CPR and First Aid trained. Each of our programs is constantly supervised by a qualified handler and aide. Bark-A-Bout always maintains a high employee-to-dog ratio.


Congratulations to Linda C.!

Bark-A-Bout’s “Employee of the Month”, March, 2018

 Linda is an integral asset to Bark-A-Bout’s Groom Team and is sincerely what makes Bark-A-Bout stand apart! Through Linda’s talent and hard work, Bark-A-Bout has been voted “Best Groomer of Metro Detroit” in Hour Detroit Magazine, 8 years consecutively! (And the competition is pretty stiff!)

Not only does Linda’s exceptional talent shine through her work, Linda is extremely sensitive and caring with each pet. She wins each dog over with unwavering patience and loving affection. Even when a dog might start out a little nervous, it is not uncommon to walk past our Groom Room and find them sleeping on Linda’s grooming table as she snips away. Her spectacular way of earning animal’s trust puts them at such ease they feel comfortable enough to catch a quick nap.

Linda’s sweetness with customers, her amazing eye for detail and outstanding scissor skills are nothing short of absolute talent. Congratulations to Linda on being voted Bark-A-Bout’s March, 2018 Employee of the Month! We are so blessed to have you on our team!
