Our good friends at Royal Canin approached us to help makeover some rescue dogs so that they could get adopted.  You can watch the story from WCCO-TV by clicking here.  If you know of a rescue dog in need of a makeover, click here.

This is all part of our "Random Acts of Bubbly" for 2015 and we love to give back to the Twin Cities Pet Community.

Featured Rescue Dog - Aloha

Aloha - available for adoption in Minneapolis, MNMeet Aloha who is available for adoption through MUSHR.  Aloha is a very sweet girl and was being fostered by one of our employees at Pampered Pooch Playground.   She is cream colored with brown eyes and weighs about 40 pounds. The family that adopts Aloha will need to take puppy classes and continuously work on her socialization. While Aloha is extremely timid, with a little patience she can show a lot of affection. She has a very gentle disposition but is a bit shy with strangers. Aloha is crate trained for day and night and is housebroken. She loves carrying around toys and anything else that is left on the ground. You can always find a large collection of toys stashed in her crate. She does extremely well with dogs of all sized and would do well in a multiple pet household. Aloha also does well with cats. On a leash, she does okay walking at your side except when passing people and dogs or if there is too much commotion around. She may do better in a quieter neighborhood. Aloha gets along very well with the resident dog who has helped Aloha learn how to play and just be a dog. Because of the need for Aloha's ongoing socialization and because she has learned so much from the resident dog, we are looking for a home for Aloha that already has a stable dog to help continue to teach Aloha the ropes of being a great dog. We have no doubt she will make a wonderful part of someone's family in time. She has a lot of potential and is making great progress already!  Click here for more pictures on her PetFinder.com profile.  If you adopt Aloha, we will give you a free self-service bath at Bubbly Paws Dog Wash.

Featured Rescue Dog

featured rescue dog in minneapolis, mnBubbly Paws Dog Wash believes in giving back to the pet community in the Twin Cities and every few weeks we will feature a new dog that is up for adoption from a local pet rescue.  To help promote adoption, we will donate a free self-service bath to the person that adopts the dog.  Stop back soon to see our first featured rescue dog.

The Bubbly Bowl

Yesterday was the Bubbly Bowl at Bubbly Paws Dog Wash and what a great turnout!  So many happy dogs and so many happy owners!! All the dogs that came received a digital trading card from Modern Life Photo.  Owners got to decide which local pet rescue would receive a $5 donation from their bath and the rescue that received the most donations would receive a Bubbly Paws gift package with gift cards for self-service baths and other goodies!  The winning rescue was Retrieve A Golden Of Minnesota (RAGOM).  The other rescues that the Bubbly Bowl benefited were The Pet Project, Pet Haven, Greyhound Pets Of America- MN, and The Minnesota Boxer Rescue.  What a great time and I promise we will keep doing events like these that give back to the pet community!

Have a good weekend!

Puppy Bowl Fun!

Twin Cities Puppy BowlLast year, our other business, was a sponsor of the Twin Cities Puppy Bowl, this year, Bubbly Paws Dog Wash is a main sponsor of this great event, and I have been super busy getting everything together for it.  We have teamed with with a few of our favorite businesses to make it possible; Sarah Beth Photography, Sidewalk Dog and Just Paws Training.  We will be taping it this weekend with 11 amazing puppies, most of which are available for adoption.  If you want to see all of this puppy cuteness, you can visit the Twin Cities Puppy Bowl website.   One of the core values of Bubbly Paws Dog Wash is to give back to the community in which we are located and we do this in a variety of ways.  Heck, we are giving back, and we are not even open yet. Have a good night!
