We love dogs and want them to look their best

A little bit about us

Barkingham Palace is a small family business based in London Colney, St Albans, run by Silvia.

Here dogs and cats are treated like family members; we pride in giving them professional one to one attention, making sure each guest is seen to his or her specific needs.

Our lovely garden is ideal for relaxing or playing in freedom, under our watchful eyes; and whether you’re looking for grooming, daycare or boarding, you can rest assured your pet will have a mind-blowing experience.

Dogs and cats arrive scruffy and smelly, and when they leave clean, fluffy, happy and proud, it’s another successful day


Tips for dog grooming at home

Because of the recent COVID-19 outbreak we realise that some of our customers may be in dire need of some grooming. That’s why we’ve setup a video series with easy tips anyone can do at home to keep their precious pooch clean and tidy!


Curious about our history?

Our passion for all animals has been a lifelong journey, but our professional experience handling dogs and cats started in 2009, when we started looking after other people’s animals. We then proceeded in studying dog training, which led to the discovery of our true passion in 2012, while working for a dog and cat rescue centre in Hertfordshire. Dog grooming just made us happy. Training to become professional groomers was only the beginning of this adventure.

Keeping up to date with the latest courses and grooming techniques is essential to expand our knowledge and always provide the best possible service.
