Bubbly Tails

The relaxed environment at Bubbly Tails will set your dog completely at ease – particularly important if your pooch is of the nervous kind around strangers.

The SE14 grooming parlour offers a one-to-one service, using only hypoallergenic and bio products to protect your dog’s delicate hair and skin.

When you arrive, you and your dog will receive an initial consultation to ensure your dog’s needs are addressed.

Your dog will then be treated to a full body grooming service, including ear cleaning, nail clipping and teeth cleaning where necessary.

If your pooch’s coat is looking a little dishevelled, the expert groomers can also offer a thorough dematting service.
