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.

Our Dog Grooming Services

Freshen Up
Perfect for the mucky pups! Two professional grade shampoos and a condition, followed by a blow dry and a full brush out of the coat. We will finish the groom with a generous spritz of doggy perfume and a bow for their collar.
Tidy Up
After a bath & dry we will attend to the nails, hygiene area, ears, and clip out the hair between the paw pads. To keep your pooch looking clean and tidy, we will trim the hair between the eyes and tidy up around the paws.
Full Works
The full works is the complete package! We will clip and style the hair to your preference (this can be breed standard, personal choice - or if you're stuck, please don’t hesitate to ask us for advice on which style will suit your dog and lifestyle).
Ideal for pooches who moult a lot! We use a high quality organic de-shedding shampoo, which stimulates the shedding process, followed by a ‘blast’ of the coat with a high velocity dryer, which quite literally blasts hair all over the salon!
Hand Stripping
This technique is used for some wire coated dogs in order to maintain the natural colour and texture of the coat. We will use a range of hand stripping tools to get the desired look, and scissor tidy (if necessary – depending on breed) areas needed.

Hello From Us

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.

          positive review  So happy with our first experience with Bubble Bark. Our little King Charles looks and smells amazing after her tidy and I thought we’d never be able to sort out her feathery paws! Thank you so much, highly recommended ?
