Chicago Dog Grooming Prices

Dog Grooming Prices

Foreword

We strive to be the best dog business in Chicago, and we believe that you get what you pay for. If you come take a tour, we believe you'll immediately see and feel the difference.

If you're trying to compare our prices with another business, you always need to analyze differences on an apples-to-apples basis. For example, we have a large outdoor space with grass, playground equipment, pools, sun, and shade. Most other daycares in Chicago do not have an outdoor space at all, or may have a small area with gravel or concrete. They may only have your dog in play for a short time each day, whereas here they are in play throughout the day for many hours, plus the opportunity for nap time. There are countless examples.

We advise that you do your research, take a tour of any business you are considering, and ask lots of questions.

The chart below summarizes some of the major differentiators that set us apart and make our pricing worth every penny:
