Doodle Grooming Tips

We have put together some great at home care tips to keep your Doodle's coat looking great between grooming appointments.  AS most doodle breeders will tell customers, there is much at home care that needs to take place to keep the coat looking good and not matting up. As always, feel free to reach out if you have questions, and any of our great groomers can show you how to care for your doodle.

Fedex Office Promo

This past December a video production team from Fedex Office stopped out to our Saint Louis Park dog wash to find out more about how we work and how FedEx Office has helped us become one of the premier dog washes in the country! We had so much fun shooting this video.  One quick side note, the woman that was working at the FedEx Office store in the video is a not only a FedEx Office team member, but a real life Bubbly Paws customer!  How cool is that??  Click Here to read more or watch the video below!  

Mallory's Pumpkin Spice Latte Ratings

It's no secret that Bubbly Paws employees LOVE their coffee!  This week, we gave Mallory, our dog groomer at our Saint Paul store the tough task of finding the "Best Pumpkin Spice Latte" on Grand Ave.  We know there are lots of coffee options on Grand Ave, so we tried the locations within 3 blocks of our store.  Here are Mallory's results...  

Starbucks - It was ok, a little too spicy and not enough pumpkin flavor.

Caribou - Good pumpkin flavor but a little too sweet.

Chez Arnoud - It was just right... The perfect mix of pumpkin and spice... Just like a pumpkin pie!

Bread and Chocolate - Does not have a Pumpkin Spice Latte ;(

As the Pumpkin Spice Latte season continues, we will update this list as Mallory gets her coffee fixxxxxxxxxx!!

Saint Paul Dog Wash

saint paul dog wash and dog grooming We are so excited to finally be open at our Saint Paul location on Grand Avenue.  For the longest time, Trycia and myself were looking for a great spot in Saint Paul, and we found it at the end of April!  Construction started May 1st and finished last week.  We have tried to bring many of the things people love at the Saint Louis Park location and incorporate them into the new dog wash!  We have the same waist high tubs, professional equipment, locally made shampoo and our drying room.  One thing that we wanted to remain the same was our level of customer service.  All of our new staff have been trained at the Saint Louis Park location and are ready to help spoil your pooch!  In addition we have Bri, who was doing some grooming with us the past 4 months, who will now be our full time dog groomer in Saint Paul!  We are so excited that this store is open and can't wait for everyone to check it out!  Yesterday was our first day with the Saint Paul dog wash being open and it was a huge success!  We had so many people stop in to check it out and we even did a few baths!  Our new space is at 949 Grand Ave, just a few blocks away from Anthropology and LuluLemon (shocking how everyone knows exactly where these stores are, and all those stores are dog friendly).  A big thanks to Lill, our general manager of both locations, she has spent lots of time working hard to make sure everything works just right!

Thanks again for all of your support as we grow our small family business!

Happy 1 Year Anniversary, Jessica!

Minneapolis dog groomerWow... I can't believe that Jessica, our AMAZING dog groomer has already been with us for a year.  It feels like just yesterday she was impressing us with her test groom.  Finding a dog groomer is such a hard task and one that I never look forward to.  IT is really hard to find a great groomer, that has a good personality and is willing to deal with customers.   It is basically like finding a great hair stylist, but harder!!  Jessica is the total package and we absolutely love having her at Bubbly Paws.  Thanks again for such a great year!!!  For more on our grooming services, visit our dog grooming page.

Wet dog in the tub

I can honestly say, I LOVE being a business owner and talking with customers.  Today Bubbly Paws Dog Wash was buzzing with customers, Cyndi our dog groomer was working hard and everything was running very smooth and everyone was in the mood to chat.  Nala the Wheaton came in for a bath and was so behaved while she was getting her bath.  Way to go Nala! Hope everyone has a great night!
