WONDER EAR has a profound effect on the problems associated with a moist ear. Cleans up infections in just a couple of treatments. As we know, most all of the ear problems we encounter in the dogs start with a moist ear.
WONDER EAR is clean smelling, stops infections and keeps the ears clean with just periodic maintenance.
All natural insect repellent that repels ticks, fleas, gnats, mosquito's, no-see-ums, and more!
All your pet grooming needs including "pin brushes", nail clippers, etc.
These are absolutely essential in helping control your shedding family member!
Begin the pampering spa experience with a 15 minute massage-like thorough brushing, pawdicure (nail trim), ear cleaning, sanitary trim, shaving pads, trimming feet hair, a relaxing bath using top of the line pet products, and blow-dry.
Perfect for short-haired dogs, and dogs who do not need a haircut.
This begins with the basic 'Bath & Brush' and adds clipper work and minimal scissoring. This is just right for pets that are frequently groomed.
Designed for those who don't get groomed on a regular basis.
The Complete Groom plus hand scissoring, brushing and dematting (pricing varies with the degree of matting) or clipper work. Ideal dog grooming package for coats requiring extra time and care. Perfect for your (limited) hand-scissored Bichon Frise, Poodle, and your Soft-Coated Wheaton Terrier.
A Complete Groom or basic Bath & Brush Package that also includes a low-shed shampoo that is enriched with oatmeal, aloe and vitamins that strengthen the hair shafts and release the undercoat. With the added bonus of up to 30 minutes of brushing with the FURminator tool. An amazing process that dramatically reduces shedding!
This is for dogs who come in severely matted and there is no other way but to remove the hair and start over. You may wonder why it costs extra to "just shave" your dog. Depending on the severity, the skin underneath could have unknown issues. Extra time is necessary to ensure we don't cut the skin under the mat. Also, this does take a severe toll on our equipment - especially our clipper blades, which are very expensive to replace.
Add-ons MUST be requested at the time of booking

First Step: Contact the Office. 413-320-8737 or Email Us
We are happy to explain our services, pricing, and answer any questions.
Second Step: We will schedule a pet-sitting consult. This meeting will provide the opportunity to meet Barbara Ann with The Barking Basement. This allows her to learn the normal routine and have the chance to become friends with your pets.
Some pets are very friendly and may become acquainted right away. Others are shy and may take some time to warm up. These are things we would like to learn. It is important for her to know the feeding and medication routines and understand their likes, dislikes, hiding places, quirks or fears. We will discuss your pet's routine and anything else you feel is important for Barbara Ann to know.
This initial pet sitting consultation also enable all parties involved to ask any questions as well as communicate a thorough understanding of expectations.
Third Step: Sign all of the required forms & contracts (these you will print PRIOR to our arrival for the initial consult), and pay at least 50% of total the amount of entire contract period.
My name is Barbara and I have been grooming (with a pause or two in between) since 1989. Pets are my passion. I take the time needed to ensure a calm, and stress free grooming experience. My belief is quality not quantity. Promoting health and wellness with your pet throughout the grooming experience is my expertise. Your dog family member will enjoy their brief stay and go home happy, clean, beautiful and feeling great!
The Barking Basement Is Currently NOT Taking New Clients!!
Because all dogs are different, our pricing is based on size, breed and level of grooming needed.
There are many variables in pet grooming, such as whether your pet has long or short hair and also if the hair is matted and tangled. Factors which determine the price of a service include amount of scissor work, degree of matting, difficulty of the cut, disposition of the animal, drying time, length of hair and mainly size of pet. We will be happy to quote you a price range over the phone, and we invite your inquiries.
Our full-service dog grooming includes bathing, cleaning of the ears (plucking if necessary), nail trim, blow dry, brush out, sanitary-area clean up, trimming and hair cut. Odoroma Therapy is also available!
For grooming services, please book a minimum of 1-2 weeks in advance. The Barking Basement in Westhampton has a 24-hour cancelation policy and first-time clients may be asked for a deposit to hold their appointment.
All pets must be on a leash or in a carrier. Dogs and cats MUST be up-to-date on their Rabies vaccination. On your first appointment you must bring a copy of Rabies Certificate. We recommend that if your pet has fleas, that you contact your veterinarian before scheduling an appointment.
*Our rates are subject to change without notice.*
Do you groom cats?
No, I do not offer full grooming on cats. However, I do offer nail trimming for cats.
Do you have a lot of dogs there all at the same time?
No, I work individually with only one family of pets at a time. On occasion, your pet will see another dog if my schedule is tight (due to demand), but it will be in passing. This means one is either coming in as yours are leaving or they are leaving as you are coming in.
Do you use tranquilizers?
Never. Only a licensed vet should tranquilize a pet. We do not recommend that you get your pet tranquilized as they fight it and it only makes things worse.
We DO, however, recommend that you talk to your vet about homeopathic stress-reducing products if you feel it would help.
How can I help keep my dog from stressing?
Speak to your dog in a calm, relaxed, quiet way. Do not speak to it in a manner that creates stress such as a high-pitched tone, or in a manner that your dog perceives as something bad is about to happen.
Do you use muzzles?
Alternative measures will be taken before this option is used. Muzzling will be used only if absolutely necessary. Muzzling will not harm your pet, and protects both the pet and the groomer. Please be assured that it will only remain on for as minimal a time as necessary.
How long will the grooming session take?
When you arrange an appointment with us, your pet is provided with dedicated one-on-one time. Grooming requirements are dependent on breed, temperament, condition of coat and skin, along with products used, as well as services provided. Many appointments will be completed in about 2 hours (give or take).
