About Us

The Barking Lot

Deenie Sullivan is a Master Groomer who has been servicing pet owners in the Bloomington/Normal area for over 25 years. Following her graduation from the International Pet Institute, Deenie began working at a local grooming shop for Ken Busher.

In 1983 Deenie opened her first grooming shop in Bloomington/Normal. As the years progressed, so did her business. In 1999 Deenie opened her first boarding facility where services such as grooming, boarding and daycare would be offered. Because it was such a huge success, Deenie saw a need for expansion. In September 2006, she found the perfect location for her current boarding facility: a 7500 square foot, state-of-the-art business with your pet’s best interest in mind and heart.

The building includes heated floors in the kennels, indoor and outdoor runs, large outdoor play area, playground equipment and an outdoor bone-shaped swimming pool (the only one of its kind in the area). The grooming area was specially designed to create a stress-free environment for your pet. Our facility is also equipped with a separate geriatric ward for elderly and special-needs pets.
