About Bubble Hut Doggy Spa
Sophie's background

I've worked as a carer for many years in healthcare settings - 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 spent 2 years training and 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 first Airedale Zachary, became part of the family 4 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 at last, and is a really sweet-natured friendly boy. He was joined recently by puppy Hudson and is now Uncle Zack. Both boys love to run out to greet visiting doggies - so do tell me if your dog is nervous and I can make sure they stay shut in the house when you arrive. 

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.

These are the things I care about....
that your dog is happy, healthy & comfortable when being groomed
that I offer a highly-trained, safe and professional service
that you are happy as a customer and love the way your dog looks
