What You'll Get
Though dogs can take care of themselves, they choose not to—instead focusing their efforts on chasing squirrels, licking marmalade off babies, and learning American Sign Language. Give hardworking dogs or cats the attention they deserve with today's Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of dog washing and a take-home care package at Bubbly Paws Dog Wash in St. Louis Park (a $65 value).
Inspired by their own pup, Roxy, Bubbly Paws owners Keith and Patrycia Miller created a foamy self-service haven for distressed dog owners who have grown weary of muddy paw prints and dirt-caked coats. Ample supplies of aprons, towels, brushes, and professional dryers equip novice and expert doggy detailers alike with the tools to administer a professional-grade luster to four-legged members of the family.
Waist-high tubs allow pet owners to wash their dogs without reaching, shielding scrubbers from soapy projectiles and Canadian quarters shaken from shabby coats. Nonslip ramps at the base of each tub pave a safe thoroughfare for damp or stilettoed paws, and a goody bag loaded with shampoo and conditioner, a toothbrush, and a small bag of dog treats keeps canines in prime petting condition.
Self-service dog washes start at $10 for small dogs weighing fewer than 15 pounds and run to $25 for extralarge pups weighing more than 80 pounds. Any remaining Groupon value can be put to use toward future visits following weekends spent rolling in dirt or testing swatches at a paint-supply store.
Small white-and-green tiles adorn the open archways and columns that abut the multiple bathtubs in Bubbly Paws’ clean, friendly facility, easing jittery pets and their leash wielders. As an added benefit to man's best friend, Bubbly Paws donates goods and services to pet rescues each year.
