Dog Grooming

Dog Grooming Chicago –
A clean, groomed dog is a healthy, happy dog!

At K9 University we are aware that a clean, well groomed dog is not only a happy dog, but a healthy one too. We have excellent dog grooming services which include all the essentials like brushing and bathing, hair removal, stripping and nail trimming.

Bring your dog in for a great dog wash and pampering by our dog groomer Maria Castaneda in the comfort of our Doggie Salon. Grooming is such a vital part of a dog’s health and well being, that it needs to be done on a regular basis. It can actually increase your best friend’s lifespan.

You have a choice of selecting any or all of these basic services:

Dogs with matted hair or thick coats are first brushed and de-matted, then sprayed with a warm shower or sponged from a bath. Our shampoos are of excellent quality and always mixed with water to the manufacturer’s specifications to avoid it being too strong. Shampoo is always rinsed out thoroughly, as remaining shampoo can irritate the dog’s skin. We will advise you on how often your dog need to bathe as too much shampooing can strip a dog’s coat of its natural oils.
Whereas most dogs (but not all breeds) require regular trimming and cutting, hair removal is often a matter of preference by the owner. There are some practical reasons for hair removal, depending on the dog’s climate sensitivities and the type of work it may be doing, but it is usually just a case of ‘styling’, pretty much the same as humans. We can make your pet look ‘pretty’ so have some fun with it!
The proper grooming method for most Terriers, Spaniels and many other breeds is ‘Stripping’ , It entails the pulling of dead hair out of the coat of a non-shedding dog, either by using a stripping knife or the fingers. It is painless and enjoyed by most dogs, especially if introduced to it as a puppy. Hand stripping is done for shedding dogs, allowing a new coat to grow.
Nail trimming is done with a nail clipper and is essential to a dog’s health. Long nails can curl under and make it not only difficult to walk, but more difficult to cut in the future. Nail trimming needs to be done monthly.

Why Our Clients Love Us

K9 University is great. We’ve been going there for 7 and a half years. We’ve done training, we’ve done agility, we’ve done boarding and we’ve done daycare. The only thing we haven’t done is a drop off and pick up. My dog is kind of a nut and they deal with her well. Debbie W.
I was referred by a previous customer. I had never used a daycare before and my experience has been wonderful since day ONE! The staff is friendly, welcoming and attentive to my dog (and me…LOL)…She loves going there.Tracee A.
My dog has experienced everything at K9U: daycare, classes and boarding. When he is either picked up by the K9U van or dropped off his tail is wagging like crazy. When I pick him up he is happy to see me, goes outside to relieve himself and then pulls to go back in.Jane F.
I’ve been a customer for 15 years and counting. K9 helped us raise our puppies and cherish our old girls. I can think of no other place I would trust more with my furry family.Jonathan A.
This is really awesome doggo place. We had a basic obedience training here, and our dog is changed! She listens now, and behaving well, our trainer is really good - she is like a dog whisperer. Love and recommend this place for all dog's parent out there.Yessie S.
K9U is great. They offer classes as well as day camp /sitting services. The size of the location is pretty impressive, as they have a large indoor and outdoor areas for dogs to play. (They even pick up and drop off your dog.). The staff and trainers are very friendly and extremely effective.James J.
