Most folks enjoy a little pampering now and then and take themselves off to a salon to get their hair and nails done. Recently, a place for the canine members of your family to receive the same kind of pampering opened up in downtown Princeton.
Karrie Crucil, owner of Barking Bubbles has expanded her home based business into a store front location at 290 Bridge Street.
Crucil began her career in 2007. She initially began as a bather and groomer’s assistant, who went on to complete her certification.
“It’s not really like a job,” said Crucil, “I just love animals and I try to pamper them as much as I can.”
At home Crucil and her family share their life with three horses, a dog and a cat.
Jennifer Bernard has joined Crucil as a groomer’s assistant. Bernard will bath and dry dogs to prepare them for grooming by Crucil.
Services offered at Barking Bubbles include; matting checks, a check for skin lesions or bumps (anything out of the ordinary), bath and dry, hair cuts, gland cleaning, ear cleaning, nail clipping, and yes—even teeth brushing.
Boarding and overnight kennel services are not offered however, if you are in need of a doggie day care service, Barking Bubbles can do that for you. For $5 per hour, your pooch can stay at the day care while you do your shopping, visits or attend appointments.
Barking Bubbles is open Tuesday to Saturday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Call 250-438-0274 to make your appointment or stop by the down town location at 290 Bridge Street.
