Bark Life Announces New Grooming Salon in Indian Shores, FL

The specialty pet retailer in the Tampa Bay area has acquired Pet Styles by Sharon and will operate it under the new name Bark Life Express.




(PRESS RELEASE) INDIAN SHORES, FL — Bark Life, Inc., a specialty pet retailer in the Tampa Bay area, has announced that they have acquired Pet Styles by Sharon in Indian Shores at 19455 Gulf Blvd, Suite 7, next to Smuggler’s Cove Adventure Golf. They will continue operating the location under the new name “Bark Life Express.” This will be Bark Life’s third corporate store, including their 14,000 square foot facility in Seminole and their St. Pete location on Central Avenue. More locations are being planned for the future.

“Sharon was a groomer with Bark Life before she opened her store here,” said owner Tammy Vasquez. “She called us first because she knew we would take care of her clients—and they couldn’t be happier. It was a super-smooth transition and we’re happy to be here!”

The new Bark Life Express features the same, high-quality, cage-free grooming, along with fresh baked dog treats and assortment of toys for both cats and dogs.

“We’re having a blast getting to know all of our new furry friends,” Tammy added. “We’re happy to have them as part of the Bark Life Family and look forward to helping those needing daycare or boarding services, which are available at our nearby Seminole location.”

Bark Life Express is currently open Monday through Friday from 9:00am to 5:00pm, with Saturday hours coming soon. For more information visit
