Dog Grooming reviews in Chicago

    Wag Your Tail
    This place is horrible, abusive, dangerous, dirty, dark! Made two appointments last year, nobody there, business closed both times! Decided I'd give them one more change...Brought my shih-tzu in at 12:30p.m. Female at counter did not appear to me to be an animal lover; personality of a rock! Told me to give her 4 hours...Place was dirty, dingy!! My gut instinct was to run, with my dog...(wish I had followed it!) Have always read you should always be able to see room where they are groomed....My pup was taken down a darkened stairwell...fast forward, call at 4p.m. to check progress, no answer, message left...call again at 4:30, again no answer message left that I was just coming in to get him...I started fearing they had left for the day!! Get there, lady comes up from aforementioned darkened stairwell, with a fresh scratch on her arm ( the groomer's arm)...She said to give her 20 more minutes, and I started to get, well rude...and demanded why???? She said, ok 10 minutes, just very busy...nobody else was in the store, didn't hear any other dogs barking, etc....brings my poor dog up, who appeared not to know who I was, was panting, and turning in circles...never occurred at my other place, always bounced out, head held high, tail wagging, coming right to me...If I hear one more review of this place giving a great review, because their dog smelled good, I'm going to scream!! So they spray them with a nice smelling scent, so what???!!! Now here's the really bad part....I truly believe they drugged my dog....Friend staying with me, who knows my pup well felt the same way...He was zonked out!!! Saying his name, louder and louder, no response, ear twitch, NOTHING!! Started trying to shake him awake...No response!!! This is at 9pm, 2am....same..I called an emergency vet...Unfortunately they can not check for drugs, by blood test or anything like you can humans!...Next morning, still groggy, sleeping..called my vet who reiterated that yes, this is true...I started rubbing him, felt like something stuck to his fur, so I picked at it a little bit...It was dried blood, that I reopened by picking it, under his belly!! Now I know, yes, this can happen, being nicked by a groomer...But they had an obligation to tell me this! I truly believe they wanted to keep him longer, for him to become more responsive from whatever they gave him! Brought him to my vet, just to check him...they advised it's possible this could have occurred...but he appeared to be fine now, and were sorry they can't check for drugs in a dog's system...(and I love my vet, and trust them completely)...I should also say, I left a somewhat hysterical message with them at 2am earlier that morning, stating I know they drugged my dog, and demanded them to call me later that day! Of course, nothing...no answer later either, door locked, nobody behind the counter when going there, nor answering their bell!!! DO NOT BRING YOUR YOUR ANIMAL HERE! i posted this on a neighborhood app, and I had numerous neighbors responding with the same thing!! They also believed all of the above occurred to their pet(s) also...I am taking this further, before anybody else's dogs/cats etc. are injured, or worse!

    Business owner complained that a tea cup Yorkie was too aggressive and he couldn't groom him properly. He did not cut his legs, nor around his face cause he said he was scared of getting bit. Needless to say, the Yorkie teeth were removed years ago. Not recommended. Take your chance.

    MONROE GROOMING STUDIO
    I take both of my dogs there every  6 weeks. It is like $70 for both of them. I have been going there for several years now. I think it is an excellent price. The quality is fine. My one dog does get trimmed and stuff. They both get baths, brushed and all that stuff. Toe nails clipped. She does a really nice job on them. She is always on time, I tend to be late getting them there. She is very professional. She is very friendly including to the dogs. She does a good job and there are other dogs there that she seems to do a good job on. She keeps control of everybody. She does a good job and does not cost too much. I am sure that there are some that are cheaper but I am very happy with the work that she does on my dogs and I don't have to do it. We have going for some years now.

    ROGER'S BARK PET SALON INC
    Willie enjoyed his visit. It turns out his prior grooming salon did not do hand stripping on him correctly...mostly clipping him. It will take a long time to get his top coat back, if ever. RB staff will work with Willie to see if it can get fixed. Barney is a big barky Greater Swiss Mt. Dog....he also enjoyed his visit. Much time spent combing out all of Barney's shedding hair, he looked great. Barney immediately calmed down after we turned him over. That is a good sign that he likes the staff. Yes, this is not a bargain groomer (see bad chains)....it will cost more....but you get much more competent/ caring/ professional service....so much better value. We will be back.

    Earth Pups
    It went extremely well. My dog is 8 and had not been to a new groomer in 6 years. He is a little guy and gets really nervous. Stephanie, the groomer, was excellent with him. She took her time and he was really happy when I picked him up (not scared). She gave him a great cut as well!

    PetSmart Grooming
    I go there all the time to buy my pet food and stuff, but I also take my dog to get groomed. I was last there for grooming. What I like best is that they just do a good job and I like the personnel. I get special grooming stuff for her (my dog). My dog's grooming costs $78. I have been going there for about 8 years.

    BARKING LOT INC
    They are a little bit pricey but I think its worth because we can do daycare at the same time. They've really been great. We've have been taking our animals there for 13 years. I would recommend them.

    D Spa & pet boutique
    We really like them. They are fantastic. We normally pay around $60 to groom each of our dogs. I think they are worth it for the price. They are comparable to the area too. They have an online porthole, so you can book things. I will use them again in another 6 weeks or another 4 weeks. There are a lot of appointments available, so it’s easy to book. They’re open weekends, evenings and things like that. If you have a dog who’s nervous, they have multiple groomers there at all times, so that they can tag team. Which a lot of places don’t have. They also have a place so your dogs can hang out afterwards or beforehand, if you need them watched for a bit. That makes dropping off easier.

    The cost stays that way, it’s never changed. I think they do a good job and they’re available. My dogs like it there. I don’t know how long it takes because we usually leave them there a little longer, because we don’t live in that neighborhood, we drive a couple neighborhoods to get to it. I would say about an hour and a half , 2 hours.
