My girlfriend and I decided to check out Barking Leather this weekend, we are very active in BDSM/Fetish and have been looking for a store in Atlanta that had what we were looking for. This store is AMAZING, not only are the items in the store true BDSM (not the cheap 50 shades of grey stuff you get at your run of the mill "adult store") this is all high quality equipment, much of it made by local craftsmen. Not only are the products very high quality, but the prices were really incredible, we have ordered from about every online BDSM store and have been to every store we could find whenever we travel and this place has some of the best quality and best prices we have seen. The owner spent about an hour talking to us about all of his products and let us try out all of the electric toys that we were interested in, he was incredibly nice and i would highly recommend this place to anyone who was looking for something a little more than your usual adult toy store. i know we will be back as soon as we are ready for some new equipment to try! ---Joshua G.

This is not your typical "adult store." This store mostly caters to the bdsm/fetish lifestyle. There is no other store in Atlanta that is quite like this one. Many of the things that they carry are handmade by the owners, or by local craftsmen. The items are high quality for very reasonable prices.
The owner, we met, says that he and his partner own the store together. He was very friendly and knowledgeable about the things that they carry. He allowed my boyfriend and me to test out some of his handmade electro gear. (We ended up buying some!) He also said that they may be moving to a bigger location and selling latex clothing soon, which is awesome, because no store in Atlanta sells latex.
When you're searching for bdsm gear, this is the place to go. Give them business, so that us kinksters can stay kinky. ---Kaleigh M.
I came up on Friday (2/27) for the first time. Really impressed with the store. Of course being from backwoods in Alabama, I don't get to see leather that way often.
Reason I'm emailing is Denny. He could not have been any more helpful and NICER. I told him my life history, or so it probably seemed to him, and he chose exactly what I wanted.
We chatted about fetishes and one of the weird ones that a friend of mine is hooked on, it just seemed like well, hell here comes old friend Danny (my name).
He is wonderful and ain't bad to look at either. You should be proud of the way he handled the store and customers.
I'll be back!! ---Danny
I have to say that I might have been a bit apprehensive walking into this small boutique leather store for men and women that are into the erotica fetish wear for BDSM. But, to be honest, it felt like I was walking into a friendly Mayberry RFD store. It was missing Aunt Bee. Instead, the owner was there and friendly, but not pressuring. He knew a lot about the quality of the goods he had in the shop. He and his partner own it and cater primarily to a community of people that seem to have disappeared, but show signs of rebirth as BDSM appears to be coming back in style as it embraces new fetishes as well.
They make a lot of the pieces including some of the best floggers I have ever seen - made from various leathers for different experiences. They have a lot of old guard, but they specialize in custom work and high quality leather. They also carry some fashion, equipment and supplies. I noticed a book case that appears to have a lot of educational books. In glass cases there were some extremely nice looking hardware and electro devices.
You need to really look slowly in the shop to take it all in. The back room is dedicated to toys and a lot of consignment clothing - leather pants, chaps and motocross wear. They even had portable equipment (Slings St. Andrews Crosses and unusual slings made of industrial strapping)
Great store - nothing to be embarrassed by in this Southern Hospitality Rack. Wink." --- Stephen
You guys are awesome, I can't tell you how happy I am with this leg harness. For those of you who don't know, these are the guys that put in the love and effort to match a custom piece to my combat boots." --- Jimmy
Shout out to Barking Leather for the great recommendation for leather polish and at a great price! Now my cowboy boots can keep on boot scootin'!" --- Terence
