Bubbly Paws

Let's face it: Your dog smells, and his hair has taken up residence on all your favorite sweaters and your furniture. Proceed with your pooch to St. Louis Park's Bubbly Paws Dog Wash, Spa, and Grooming for some needed TLC. Whether you'd rather save money and wash your own dog ($10-$25) or prefer one of their friendly staff do the dirty work for you ($30-$50, with ear cleaning, nail trim, and light brush-out included), the result will be the same — your pet is going to look (and smell) fresh. Other services include grooming and de-shedding treatment, and the shop's storefront at Excelsior and Grand has a small selection of treats and other goodies should you want to reward your dog with a snack or a new post-bath collar. We especially love Bubbly Paws because it gives back to the community, both in philanthropic work and by posting pictures of their ever-so-cute canine clients mid-bath and post-grooming-session on their Facebook page.
