Best Of Awards

Stellar-SLPThe other night was the Best of St Louis Park awards and I am so excited that both of our businesses went home with an award! Bubbly Paws, our dog wash won "Best Place to Spoil Your Pooch" and Pampered Pooch Playground, our doggy daycare won "Best Dog Daycare". This is the 3rd year in a row that both our businesses have won a "best of" award and I can't be more proud of our staff who work so hard each day taking care of all the dogs. For a complete list of winners, you can visit the St Louis Park Magazine website. Below is a short list of some of my favorite winners:

Best Bakery - Honey and Rye - They are located down the street from Bubbly Paws and serve up the most amazing coffee and pastries!

Best Fitness Studio - Lifetime Fitness - One of my absolute favorite classes is their Crossfit class (which they call Alpha). You will catch me at that class at least 3 times a week. The trainers are great and we have a small little family!

Best Boutique - Primp - Located at the West End and they are super dog friendly!

Pitching In

Leyla at dog daycare in Minneapolis The new year is here and Pampered Pooch Playground is rocking.  This week all the talk is about our remodeling that is starting later this week.  Everyone is very excited for the updates and we really try to take our employees opinions into account when we change things.  As an owner, sometimes it is easy to sit back and say "deal with it", but we don't work that way and those words would never leave my mouth.  If there is something we can do to make the job easier, we will change and adapt to make things easier for our staff.   I think it really helps that Trycia and Myself are very involved in the dog daycare everyday (we don't just sit in an office), but know what really goes on.  For example, tonight, the person that does our cleaning was sick, so who filled in?? I did!! Some of the staff did think it was kinda funny that the owner was cleaning, but it is a task that needs to be done.  I actually had fun doing it (I had don't done it for a few months).

We are excited to get the ball rolling on 2012 and continue to provide the best possible care and exercise for your pooch!

I think we will make the slogan for the year..... 2012... The year of the pooch!

Have a good night.
