Dog Grooming PricesGet Started
ForewordWe 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:
|We give you a grooming time, and groom your dog through to completion. Most dogs are here for no more than two hours||?|
|Professional groomers who are talented, friendly, honest, and follow your instructions||?|
|Speak with a groomer before and after your reservation||?|
|Grooming available 7 days per week, many nights until 6:30pm||?|
|Highly sophisticated system for tracking your notes, preferences, and photos||?|
|Vigilantly require ongoing proof of updated vaccinations, including for Canine Influenza||?|
|Pricing consistency from one groom to the next, assuming everything was similar.||?|
|High quality shampoo. We only use the good stuff.||?|
|Quietest dryers available||?|
|Most effective bathing system on the market for getting your dog as clean as possible||?|
|E-mail confirmations and reminders||?|
Our prices are competitive with other groomers throughout Chicago and that may be located in major cities.

- Cording is only for certain breeds such as Komondors and Pulis
- Nail grinding: $5 additional

- Special handling: May be charged if a dog requires extra time or effort beyond what is considered reasonable and customary for the breed. The charge depends on the situation. For example, if a dog would normally take one hour but takes three hours due to fear of the dryer, there would be an extra fee that takes into account lost revenue to the groomer.
