Star Barks Inn is all about giving our BFFF’s (Best Furry Friends Forever) the Star Treatment in everything we do. We understand the importance of taking care of our pets because they rely on us to do so. Star Barks Inn Star-Spa Services focus on the well-being of our BFFF’s by providing high end spa baths which include specially curated soaps, conditioners, finishing scents, toothbrushes, dryer fans and massage tools.
We also incorporate nail trims with either the use of a clipper or, if the guests prefers, a grinder to make it as comfortable as possible. Ear cleaning and anal gland expression services are also available through Star-Spa Services to keep your BFFF looking and feeling their best.
Star Departure baths can be booked in advance or at the time of drop off for daycare and boarding guests. If you decide after 1:00pm that you would like your BFFF to receive a Star Departure bath or any other spa service, we will do our best to accommodate you if the schedule permits. To ensure your BFFF gets the spa treatment they deserve, please select and book your Star-Spa Service at least 48 hours in advance of your desired pick up time. If for some reason you need to cancel any of your Star-Spa treatment(s) there will be a cancelation fee of $20 that will be added to your final bill.
In order to maintain a safe, clean and fun environment our staff will check your BFFF for fleas and ticks at the time of intake as well as throughout their stay. If fleas or ticks are discovered see below:
In the event your pet is found with any number of ticks attached to the skin, a Tick Twister will be deployed by a trained staff member to remove them. We will also notify you of the issue immediately. In the event the staff feels that the removal of the tick(s) becomes a safety issue for the pet, we will discontinue the removal and notify you to come pick up your pet.
All Star-Spa guests must have proof of a current rabies vaccines. We also require proof of distemper-parvo and Bordetella vaccines and we strongly recommend that your dog is up to date on additional vaccines such as canine influenza to reduce their risk of infectious disease. Star Barks Inn cannot be responsible for any illnesses that may occur.
Our Star-Spa providers pride themselves in their ability to work with difficult pets; however, if a pet's behavior becomes unmanageable or unsafe, our staff may choose to do as much of the treatment as they feel safe completing and then stop. This prevents the pet and service provider from becoming too stressed and reduces the risk of injury.
Our Star-Spa service providers strive to provide results that are aesthetically pleasing. Sometimes they are unable to provide the desired appearance due to matting, quality/coat type, or shape of your dog. They will contact you with any issues as soon as they arise.
These include, but are not limited to, the following:
