Find More About Our Passionate Grooming Team

Since 2004, Bark of the Town has been keeping the dogs of Andover, North Andover and the surrounding communities well groomed. With a combined experience of over 50 years, our grooming team is well known for our ability to work with pets of all temperaments and breeds. These are just a few of the many reasons our pets’ parents have voted us Northshore Magazine’s Best of the Northshore Pet Grooming six years in a row.

Bark of the Town specializes in long-haired dogs and knows the standard cuts for most breeds. However, we will often match the cut to the pet’s individual personality to ensure your pet is as confident when they leave as when they arrived. Each member of our grooming team has a special service they are known for—from dematting to working with timid or scared dogs. We pride ourselves on getting to know you and your pet personally to ensure both of you are always happy.

To book an appointment with one of our experienced groomers, please call: (978) 208-0029.


Angela – Owner

As a little girl, Angela wanted to become a pet groomer, and for the past 15+ years, she has been doing what she loves. Understanding that each pet has its own unique personality, she encourages her pet’s parents to groom their pet to match their personality. Angela’s greatest asset as a groomer is her ability to work out the uncomfortable mats that can easily form in furry dogs. Having patience and a gentle touch provides for a stress-free groom for Angela’s four-legged clients. When not at work, you can find Angela on the beach in the summer or spending time with her family, friends, and her dog, Boss.

After being a long-term groomer at the shop, Angela purchased Bark of the Town in 2021.

Hi! I'm Michelle; I have been working with animals for 7 years now, and it is truly my passion!

I have been a dog walker, dog trainer, pet sitter, and a doggy daycare manager before finding my love for grooming! I have an almost 2-year-old Spaniel Mix name Dizzie Mae who I rescued from Louisiana. We love to spend time outside together on walks, hikes, going to the lake, and making new dog friends! I look forward to meeting all of your wonderful pups!
