Bubbly Paws is proud to be the presenting sponsor of Paws on Grand which is a huge dog event along Grand Ave in St Paul on Sunday, August 2nd from 11am-3pm. Grab your pooch and make sure to stop over and see us for walk in nail trims and nail grinds from one of our dog groomers with a portion of the proceeds benefiting The Pet Project. While you are at Bubbly Paws, check out our doggie selfie station and our friends from Hero Dog will be there showing off their awesome collars and leashes!

When we first opened our first Bubbly Paws location, we always wanted to be much more than just a business. We wanted to give back to the pet community community in which we are located. Over the years we have done this in various ways from donations, silent auction items, fundraisers, sponsorships and more! I am happy to announce that in 2014 we donated over $10,000 in goods, services and money to local pet rescues and shelters in the Twin Cities!
We want to do even more good and help even more people in the community! This year we are kicking off our "Random Acts of Bubbly" campaign. Throughout the year we will be helping out local rescues and shelters! If you have any ideas on how we can help, feel free to contact me! Because we are a small business, we can't handle every request we get, but we will try!
In addition to the Bubbly Paws crew giving back, we strongly encourage all of our customers to create their own "Random Acts of Bubbly". Let us know what you have done to help out in the Twin Cities, use #bubblypaws or share it on our Facebook page!
Our first "Random acts of Bubbly" is going to take place this week! I will give you all the details soon!
Pampered Pooch Playground and Bubbly Paws Dog Wash are excited to take part in the 2013 Twin Cities Pride Festival.

Pampered Pooch Playground is one of the founding members of the Twin Cities Dog Daycare Association who will be sponsoring the Doggy Drag Show. Keith will also be one of the judges in the show!

One of the benefits of being a small, locally owned business is that we can help support our friends and customers when they are involved in something cool. So here goes... Our good friend and professional fitness model, Lori Harder, has been featured on Fox News, ESPN, Oxygen Magazine and others is part of the Twin Cities Dancing With The Celebrities on Saturday, February 22nd. Lori also brings her dog Waffles to Bubbly Paws to get groomed and to our other business, Pampered Pooch Playground for doggy daycare. Rumor has it, Lori has some killer dance moves! To learn more about Lori or to buy tickets, click here. If you go, you will also see Trycia and myself there cheering her on. Oh, and make sure to check out the silent auction items, there is a pretty sweet package from a really cool dog wash :)
Have a good night!
Earlier in the week we were contacted by KDWB asking if we wanted to help with Dave Ryan's Christmas Wish. Our donation would help a Twin Cities family in need this holiday season and make sure their dog was taken care of! How could we say no to this! Since then, we have gotten emails from many people thanking us for our generous donation, and others asking if they could hear the whole story of where our donation went.

Yesterday, we were busy getting ready for the filming of the Twin Cities Puppy Bowl and Bubbly Paws Dog Wash is a sponsor! The set looks great and everyone involved has worked so hard. We had our dog Roxy there, and she must have been in heaven because so many of her favorite people were there. She gets so excited for certain people and all of them kept walking in and everyone had their dogs with them! Who are her favorite people you ask?
After Roxy was done greeting everyone, she had to try out all of the toys for the Puppy Bowl. She had a great time!
The filming of the Twin Cities Puppy Bowl is today. Look for some pictures soon!
Last 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!
Did you know that Minneapolis is a very dog friendly city? I was just featured on a MSN website talking about how dog friendly everything is, and where some of the best hidden gems are. In the video you will see me at our other business, Pampered Pooch Playground. I can't wait to meet everyone and talk about all of our favorite dog places in the Twin Cities. You will also get to meet our 5 year old Bernese Mountain Dog, Roxy.
