The founders of Starr Barks launched their self-service dog-washing operation because they were tired of the mess and discomfort caused by scrubbing their pups at home. Rather than viewing bath time as a chore, owners can bond with their four-legged friends while Starr Barks staffers provide them with shampoo, conditioner, towels, and dog treats. To prevent sore backs and knees, bathtubs stand at waist height and accommodate canines of all sizes. Large dogs ascend to watery bliss by way of a ladder, which saves owners the hassle of lifting them or training them to jump at the smell of soap. A safety line prevents dogs from leaping out of the tub and injuring themselves or other pets. Tidy aprons keep humans dry, and a professional dryer ensures that pets leave fluffy and water-free. Throughout the entire cleaning process, the Starr Barks coffee bar stands at the ready so dog owners can reinforce their own good behavior with coffee and snacks.
Dogs have always been a constant in Jennifer Nelson's life. She grew up with rottweilers and schnauzers, owned dogs while in graduate school, and walked the dogs of her friends in Colorado and of strangers in San Francisco. She cultivated her years of canine experience to open her own dog-walking business, expanding to offer a variety of services such as home visits, private walks, and baths.

When Tim Vogel's mobile pet-grooming business met with success, he expanded to a brick-and-mortar salon and dubbed it Pet Groomerie. Today, he has two locations and a mobile service staffed by dedicated techs that pamper dogs and cats with safe and humane services. They bathe tail-waggers in a relaxing HydroSurge bath, cleansing their nooks and crannies before smoothing out their nails with a Dremel tool. Afterwards, techs brush out and blow-dry coats, occasionally adorning them with bandanas, bows, or tiny scrunchies.
Tim's team also travels to customers in their mobile grooming salon, which generates its own power and provides four-legged friends with one-on-one care in a stress-free environment. Between each session, techs meticulously sanitize the mobile salon to reduce health risks. In addition to grooming pets, Tim's staff also sells take-home dental kits that can add up to five years to a pet's life, which is basically an eternity in ant years.
