Bubble Bark is located in the quiet village of Marsh Gibbon which is just outside of Bicester, and is easily accessible from the surrounding towns of Oxford and Aylesbury. The salon is run by experienced and qualified groomers, Charley and Sarah-Jane.
We have worked hard to create a calm, relaxed environment for your dog, so that the grooming experience is as enjoyable and positive as we can make it, and they leave happy and excited to return! With animal welfare being our absolute main priority, we will never push a dog to endure anything that they are uncomfortable with, and while they are in our care they will be treated with as much love and respect as we show our own dogs.
The inspiration for Bubble Bark was driven by our passion for animals, and our desire to create a bespoke service which is based on the needs of individual dogs. Before training as dog groomers, we both worked in different industries for quite a few years.
We constantly felt as if we weren’t making a difference in a field that truly meant something to us. Prior to that, we both had experience in the animal industry, with Sarah-Jane having worked as a farm hand, and Charley having worked in a veterinary hospital, we realised that we had a burning desire to make our own mark on the animal industry, in our own way, which is where Bubble Bark was born.

I took our Old English Sheepdog, Eddie for his first visit to Bubble Bark this week and they have done a beautiful job on him! He looks and smells amazing and most importantly, he was really happy and not stressed out when I picked him up. Lovely people that really seem to care about what they do - would highly recommend and will definately be going back 😍
Bubble Bark was recommended to me after bringing home our Welsh Corgi Chester from the Dogs Trust re-homing centre. Chester is a cheeky sweetheart most of the time, however he's extremely reactive around other dogs and isn't fond of having his nails clipped. I messaged BB before booking to see if an appointment could be made where Chester would definitely not come into contact with another dog, and from the first message I found Sarah-Jane and Charley absolutely brilliant. My (numerous) questions and concerns were answered quickly and in a friendly and informative way that put my mind at ease, and an appointment was booked. The appointment itself was fantastic - finding the place was easy and there was a helpful sign outside, there was plenty of parking on the street and I was met immediately by Sarah-Jane, who spent well over an hour with Chester, easing him in to each part of the grooming process so he was happy and calm throughout (and so was I!). If your dog is nervous about grooming I would very highly recommend Bubble Bark - we'll definitely be returning once the "corgi glitter" starts to shed again! 😅✨
Excellent service, very friendly and competent, Our Spinone Jess came back from her first hand strip looking great and had obviously enjoyed all the attention from the girls. Many, many thanks Chris and Jess
