Meet Our Team
Jessica opened up The Bark Club on October 2nd 2021. She graduated from The University of Rhode Island in 2015 with a bachelor's degree in Animal Science. She has always been passionate about animals and has worked a variety of jobs including wildlife veterinary technician, dog walker, dog bather, pet sitter, and veterinary dental technician for preventative cleanings. Her goal was to establish a facility with a self-serve pet wash and grooming with a focus creating a positive experience for pets. She loves to support local small businesses whenever possible. Her focus is on building a community of pet lovers, educating pet parents, and offering a safe place for pets.
Lindsey is Jessica's wife and can be seen working at the store on the weekends. She helps with social media and some graphic design as well as occasionally grooming dogs. She works as a full time private nanny for a family she's been with for 7 years. When she's not working, she enjoys bringing her dogs to the dog park, engaging in outdoor activities, and spending time with family.
Otherwise known as "The Brindle Bitch", C.C. is a shepherd/pitbull mix. She is Jessica and Lindsey's first dog that was rescued from A Survivor's Tale Rescue. You can find her on the mural at The Bark Club.
The second dog introduced into the Ryder family who is a chihuahua/dachshund/min pin/pug mix. Otto prefers people over pets and enjoys a warm lap to sit in.
The newest four legged member of the family! A rambunctious black lab!
Simba is Jessica's first cat that she rescued in college. He is a shy ginger boy with double paws.
Tigger is Jessica's second cat that she rescued in college with her best friend Sami who rescued her cat (Tigger's brother) named Mowgli.
Ghost is a rescue from Paws 4 Survival Rescue that has one blue eye and one green eye. He is very affectionate and acts as a second lap dog to Otto.
Beans is a foster fail from Paws 4 Survival. Jessica fostered his mother Maria and her four kittens a week after she gave birth. Beans was the runt of the litter and required hand feeding and lots of medication as a kitten. The vet told them he may never see and will have chronic respiratory issues, so when he survived, Jessica and Lindsey couldn't give him up for adoption so they kept him. Although he does suffer from respiratory issues, he pulled through and is able to see!
Grubby is a sphynx cat which means he is hairless. He enjoys sleeping under warm blankets, eating any and everything, and running around with his kitty siblings.
Mary is our dog-loving & ambitious assistant manager. She has been working with animals for the past 7 years! Along with being a Bark Club team member, she runs a small dog walking/pet sitting business of her own and is also in her senior year of college studying undergraduate law and is preparing for graduation and law school. When not studying, you can find her behind the desk helping customers, or in the back doing baths & nail trims!! She is also a cat mom of two!
Christine is our front desk receptionist who is also a lover of dogs and has a pit mix named Kalua. She graduated from Umass Boston with a Bachelor's Degree in Psychology and hopes to eventually get her masters degree in social work. She is passionate about herbal medicine and wants to use her research and knowledge to help others on a path to holistic healing. A few of her favorite hobbies include hiking, going to the beach and thrift shopping.
Angela has been grooming dogs for close to 9 years. She is very passionate about grooming and animals. She has 2 fur babies at home. Thor (a bichon/shih tzu mix) and MOOshu (munchkin cat), who she loves dearly. Her favorite breed of dog to groom is a shih tzu because of their fun and loving personalities.
In loving memory of Gollum who unexpectedly and tragically passed away. You will always be loved <3
My dog Lyla has gotten groomed at the bark club twice and they do a phenomenal job! I love that the appointments are similar to a people hairdresser where the dogs do not have to wait in crates! We will continue to groom Lyla here!
The Bark Club is our new go-to for self wash! We LOVE it so much! The facilities are clean & great. The staff is helpful & friendly. Booking the self wash can be done easily and conveniently online. Thank you for making the bathing experience great for me and my senior doggo.
I brought my 7 month old puppy in for a quick nail trim and the two woman I spoke to were super super friendly and lovable with my pup! The atmosphere was very comfortable and they were so good with my girl who is wiggly during nail trims! And we couldn’t leave without picking out a toy! We will definitely be back!
My pup always comes out clean, fluffy and happy! It takes a while for my Siberian husky to get groomed and the workers are always so excited to see him. Makes it so much easier leaving him with people I trust! Highly recommend The Bark club! They also have an amazing store to buy treats and toys too. He always come home with a cute new bandana!
Such a great store! So many cute products and most made in USA no need to worry about my pup chewing on harmful toxins! Bought an adorable collar too. Very friendly staff.
