About Us

Micheal Washington is CEO and founder of The Bark of the Town Pet Groomery.  

Micheal has always had a love for dogs.  That love led him to leave the corporate world for a whole new career in grooming.  After completing his schooling, he worked as head groomer for 4 years in Old Town before following his dreams and starting his own business. 

His mobile unit is a place where he could calm dogs fears of the dreaded buzzing clippers.  A place where dog owners could feel that their beloved dogs were safe and well taken care of.  Most of all a place where he could showcase his skills, enjoy all the different dogs and their owners, and the opportunity to make any dog feel and look their best.

  • Convenient mobile unit that comes to you
  • Professional dog grooming and care
  • Friendly staff - with people or dogs!
  • Flexible appointment schedules
  • Clean, safe and comfortable mobile unit
  • We treat your dog as if they were our own

  • Highest level of quality from all staff members

Micheal was featured on Animal Planet's "Groomer Has It" Season 2.  He beat out thousands of applicants to become one of the top 12 contestants.
