Welcome To The Barkside.
Your '20, '21, & '23 Platinum Award Winning grooming salon for the Birmingham area.
Looking for a unique & fun environment for your furry friend? Then you're in the right place! Here at The Barkside, we don’t just like grooming, we love bonding. While your baby is here, they are treated with love, just like our own. We offer a stress-free environment & a friendly atmosphere. We not only cater to those fun & goofy dogs, but to our seniors, anxious, & fearful babies who have gotten older or maybe just had a bad experience. We also cater to our crazy felines. We make sure that all dogs either get one-on-one bonding time, or playtime with another furry friend as well as two 15 minute walks to the park & back. Give us a call today & see what the bark is all about.
Get to know your groomer
Hey there, I’m Asher! I’m the groomer & Owner Of The Barkside. I’m a pet dad of dogs, Rhett & Whiskey. When I’m not working, I’m with the dogs hiking, swimming, or with friends enjoying life. I have a background as a veterinarian technician, worked side by side with some of Alabama’s finest dog trainers, trained under a worldwide champion groomer, & CPR certified. I am a supporter in the LGTBQ+ & a fighter for my brothers & sisters of color. I am also a supporter of our military offering a 15% off military discount for those that are active & non-active. Besides my background in the animal medical field, I also specialize with dogs that have aggressive temperaments, high anxiety, puppies or dogs that may have been through past trauma & offer a different technique that allows them to have a trusting place to go.
