Bark 'n Bubble Dog Spa was started in July of 2015. After moving from Illinois, having worked in a couple of corporate stores, a smaller salon and grooming at her home, Tammy knew she wanted something different for the dogs of the area. It is a calm, open top pen, limited dog environment for the dogs. Much like a SPA for humans, but just for dogs! THE DOG COMES FIRST! Tammy has done extensive research and care to make sure that the dog is happy and healthy here.
In August of 2016, Tammy took a class at the Chicago All American Grooming Show about the AKC Safety Program. Knowing how much safety was a priority, Tammy became the FIRST salon in the state to be S.A.F.E. Certified through the American Kennel Club. Now, Tammy helps other groomers with the program and works with the AKC at shows.
In 2017, Tammy and Bark 'n Bubble won the KCRG A-List Best Of Pet Services. She was completely floored and honored that her little salon was even on the list, but to win was such a humbling event.
In 2019, Bark 'n Bubble was awarded the #1 Top Grooming Salon in the entire state of Iowa by Top Rated Local. This is an honor that Tammy is extremely proud of! This came because of the recommendations and reviews of her clients and nothing that she could pay for!
Tammy has created something different for the dogs of the area. Some come from other states and as far as Charles City and Amana, passing many other salons.
