In order to have your dog to be worked on by one of our professional groomers, whether that is a bath, haircut, nail trim, anal glands, or paw pads trimmed, we must see proof of an up-to-date rabies vaccination upon arrival. : We abide by our California State Law regarding Canine Rabies Vaccinations.

   If you do not have this, you will not be able to get your dog washed or trimmed at our facility. For the safety of everyone that enters Bark Bath, including the Bark Bath staff we do turn away clients that show up without proper proof.

***As far as SELF-SERVE dog washes go, we do NOT require rabies vaccinations for you to wash your own dog.***

Documents we accept:

#1 A current rabies vaccination certificate stamped from a licensed veterinarian.

#2 We accept paper dog licenses (not the dog tag) Paper License must have expiration date on it.
