  • Bark of the Town Pet Spa Opens

    Whether it’s a dog, cat, bird, rabbit or guinea pig, Bark of the Town has your furry friends covered.

    “Dogs are a part of the family and that’s how we want to treat them here,” said Cathy Janschek, one of the three owners of the pet grooming spa. The women-and-family owned shop opened in La Plata in June after 18 months of careful planning and selecting a location. The owners, Cathy, her daughter, Brandie Janschek, and Cathy’s sister, Candy Roddy, who grew up in La Plata, started Bark of the Town to create a less stressful, positive and happy experience for pets, Brandie said. “Wellness is very important,” her mother added.

    The trio has years of experience with dogs and grooming. Having grown up with dogs and groomed and owned show dogs, Cathy also operated her own small boarding kennel where her daughter was a groomer. “We’re all dog people,” Cathy said. Her grandfather, John Janschek, managed the Tri-County Animal Shelter, she added. Cathy, Brandie and Candy, alongside three other groomers, work as the pet stylists. “It’s very much a team,” Brandie said. “We’re hands-on owners.”

    Bark of the Town uses natural and organic products on the pets they pamper, products that the owners themselves have found to be tried-and-true. Over the years, Cathy, Brandie and Candy researched the best products for their own pets, and after discovering which worked best, wanted to share them with the community, Cathy said.

    “Your dog should smell clean because of the service we’re providing,” Brandie said, who also noted that they don’t try to sell products or additional services to their customers. “We’re going to provide the service that’s best for the pet,” her mother said. “I’m not going to charge you for something you don’t need,” such as an unnecessary de-shedding...........
