Bubbles N’ Bows has several packages to choose form. All prices are based on breed (size/weight, short/ long coat, and single/double coat) coat condition and temperament.
Dogs that are well kept on a regular basis will be less expensive. Excessive matting, which is extremely painful for the animal, to be brushed out will be evaluated on a case by case basis upon arrival. A shorter cut may make the groom easier on the dog and easier on the owner for continued home grooming.
The Bubbles N’ Tidy Package includes a Southbark Blueberry Facial; a Double Massaging Bath (with a shampoo especially for your dog’s skin/coat type.); a Conditioner; and a Hand Fluff.
This package also includes a complete brush-out, anal gland check, ear cleaning, nail clipping, a sanitary trim and pad/paw trim. An optional finishing touch would include a spritz of cologne and owner’s choice of a bow or bandana.
The Bubbles N’ Full package includes a bath & tidy above and a cut/style of your choice.
A La carte involves Nail trimming only.

Karen does not groom aggressive dogs at the salon. She works alone and for both her safety and the safety of the animal all overly aggressive or aggressively frightened animals may need veterinary care for grooming.
