Meet Julie! She is the General Manager at Bubbly Paws. You maybe have seen her hanging out at all the locations. We thought it would fun for everyone to get to know her a little better!

What is your favorite thing about working at Bubbly Paws? The obvious answer is seeing the dogs on a daily basis, how can you not smile when you are around dogs! But I also have the opportunity to work at every store and manage an amazing staff, we truly have an amazing team.

What is your favorite thing about living in Minnesota? I have lived in Minnesota all my life and one my favorite things is watching the seasons change. We definitely have brutal winters but we have so much to do here no matter what time of year! 

What do you like to do outside of work? Outside of work I love spending time with my husband and two dogs, Duchess and Thor. We love craft beer and often explore new breweries on the weekend! I also love to cook and try new recipes out!

Thanks Lill

It seems like just yesterday that Lill, our General Manager just started working at our Saint Louis Park store.  I remember her first day very clearly, it was almost 6 years ago, the day before Thanksgiving. I remember it so well because she fit right in, and immediately understood how to interact with customers, and really loved the job.  Lill has been with us since the beginning and was a huge reason that we were able to expand and she worked her way up to our General Manager position.  She was there for each store that we opened, but more importantly, she LOVES Bubbly Paws and coming to work.  In a nut shell, Lill is a small business owners dream team member as her passion, and love of the company came through in everything she did!  After 6 years, Lill has decided to move on, and we are very excited for her and sad at the same time! She has been such a HUGE part of our work and personal family and know she will go on to great things!  Thanks Lill, for an AMAZING 6 years!!

Thanks Lill

I was  just asked to write a paragraph about one of our employees that has made Bubbly Paws dog wash and grooming the success that it is (this will be featured on something cool in the next few months, but I can't talk about that yet).  It was so hard to narrow it down to just 1 while keeping it under 400 characters!  After about 20 minutes of hard thinking, I decided it was Lill, our General Manager! I copied and pasted the paragraph below! “Our General Manager, Lill has been a huge part of the success of Bubbly Paws!  I remember her first day almost 3 years ago, the day before Thanksgiving and it seemed like the whole city came to bathe their dogs; it was the busiest day we had ever had. It was Lill's first day of training and she killed it with customers even though we had not trained her.  Ever since that day, I knew she would be a huge part of Bubbly Paws. Now she runs the stores! I often find myself saying "how would Lill handle this".  She is more than a General Manager... She is our CBO...  Chief Bubbly Officer! Thanks Lill”
