- The first dog to come to Pampered Pooch Playground was a german shepherd / st. bernard mix named Bindi, who quickly became Roxy’s BFF! Bindi was waiting at 6:45am the first day we opened and came every day for 2 years and still randomly pops in.
- The slogan of Bubbly Paws Dog Wash “Our Soap Is Dope” was created over a text message conversation with Sarah Beth Photography while we were at Pizzeria Lola (super dog friendly) eating and drinking.
- The first boxer to come to Pampered Pooch Playground 4 years ago when we opened was a rescue from Minnesota Boxer Rescue (Pickler).
- Before opening Pampered Pooch Playground Keith worked in radio for 11 years (chicago, des moines, cincinnati and minneapolis). He produced the Moon and Staci show on KS95 for 4 years. Both Moon and Staci were in our wedding party.
- The idea for Bubbly Paws Dog Wash came from a customer of Pampered Pooch Playground who complained that there was no place where he could bathe his dog.
- Pampered Pooch Playground was the first doggy daycare to have an iPhone, Droid and Blackberry app where customers can watch their dogs play.
- A large part of the Pampered Pooch Playground and Bubbly Paws business model is to give back to local dog rescues!
Today our training room was taken over by the Minnesota Boxer Rescue for Santa Paws. Our friends Matt and Amber from Modern Life Photo (and Pampered Pooch Playground customers) were snapping some amazing pictures of the dogs with santa! The best part is all the money raised goes to the Minnesota Boxer Rescue. Wow, I am still shocked at the number of dogs that came out! Impressive! Have a good night.
Ellie the beagle is one of the dogs that has been a regular face at the PPP for doggie daycare for the past 2 years and tonight after daycare her mom brought her to the dog wash down the street. Ellie is very well known around the daycare for wearing a different bandanna each time she comes!
Have a great night.
Have a doog weekend!
