WEEPING WATER – There’s a new business in Weeping Water that’s bound to be a dog’s best friend.
This is Barking Beauties Spa and Shop at 103 W. Eldora Ave.
“I started here in March,” owner Alyssa Doke said. “I always dreamed of opening my own hairdressing salon. It was amazing. I wish I had done it sooner to be honest.
Her brother, Tyler, bought the building that once housed a grocery store, giving her sister the opportunity to open her business.
Prior to that, Doke, who moved to Weeping Water four years ago, had gained experience grooming dogs for nine years in Omaha.
“I have a lot of Omaha customers,” she said.
Her business is dog-only, and since she offers a full range of services, her clients can get the royal treatment.

Services include bathing, undercoat brushing, full haircut or just tidying up if needed, nail trimming and grinding, and tooth brushing.
Doke grooms only one dog at a time. This way the dogs stay calmer than if other dogs were around, she said. Doke even has a small gift shop there.
She only sees the dogs by appointment. To make an appointment, call 402-218-0775 or visit her Facebook page.
“Dogs are my thing,” she says.
