About Bubble Hut Doggy Spa
Sophie's background

I've worked as a carer for many years in healthcare environments (hospitals, residential and private homes) - and even before that, my job in publishing was for a medical journal.  So I think it's safe to say: I've always cared a great deal about caring!

I've devoted all of the last 2 years to my training and to preparing the bubble hut, so I'm able to care for your dog as passionately as any owner would want.  I grew up in a house full of dogs, cats and other assorted animals, and have owned pets most of my adult life too.

Our Airedale, Zachary, became part of the family when I was lucky enough to stop full-time work, 3 years ago now - a not-so-tiny puppy by the time he came home, and constant trouble for the first 18 months!  But he's mellowed and matured a bit at last, and is a really sweet-natured boy now, very friendly and loving the company of other dogs. (He'll probably be sleeping in the house while your doggy is here so hopefully there'll be no barking from him.)

There's a blog attached to my site, where I'll be posting stories and bits of silly (and hopefully some useful) information if you'd like to read more about life with an over-sized Terrier.
