Dog Grooming South Loop Chicago
A diverse mix of attractions and histories, the South Loop is Chicago’s up-and-coming neighborhood, with restaurants, jazz clubs, theaters, and museums enjoying a surge in popularity. Outdoor recreational areas such as the scenic lakefront fields of the Museum Campus, Grant Park, and Northerly Island are a dog lover’s paradise. Of course, keeping your doggie clean when he’s out and about can be a challenge. Fortunately, K9 University offers convenient, professional dog grooming in the South Loop too!
Dog Grooming Services
At K9 University we believe that a well-groomed dog is not only healthy but happy too. This is why we’ve gone out of our way to offer dog grooming in the South Loop that not only suits your lifestyle but meets all your doggie’s needs with services that cover all the basics, including:
Dogs should be bathed regularly to remove dirt. Our shampoos are of excellent quality and always rinsed out thoroughly, as remaining shampoo can irritate the dog’s skin.
- Hair removal:
While there are some practical reasons for hair removal, such as climate sensitivities, it is often a matter of style and personal preference, so have some fun with it!
Stripping entails pulling dead hair out of the coat, which allows a new coat to grow. It is completely painless and enjoyed by most dogs.
- Nail trimming:
Nail trimming is essential to your dog’s health. Long nails curl under and make it not only difficult to walk but more difficult to cut in the future.
Did you know you can also book your pooch in for grooming while he or she is boarding with us? Or, if they’re in for doggie daycare, simply mention the services you need when you book or drop your dog off and we’ll take care of the rest!
Other services offered:
- Doggie DayCare:
With the busy lives we lead today, it’s inevitable that your dog will be left at home for long periods of time, which can lead to problems like separation anxiety or destructive behavior. Make sure your dogs are safe, stimulated and cared for during the hours you are away from home by booking them into our doggie daycare!
- Dog Boarding:
Enjoy peace of mind knowing your dog is well looked after in a safe and comfortable place to stay when you go out of town. With a climate-controlled, loving and supervised environment offering hours of fun and games, we’ve taken dog boarding to another level.
- Dog Training:
Dog training is strongly recommended by many veterinarians for the safety of your pet and those around you, especially in a busy city like Chicago. At K9 University, we provide dog training classes for every level of ability from Basic Obedience Training to Dog Agility Training and more.
- Puppy Training:
Specifically designed for puppies 10 weeks to 5 months old, our puppy classes teach basic obedience, manners, and socialization to help turn your pup into a happy, healthy and housebroken pet you’ll be proud of.
- Pickup and Drop off:
Got to get to work early? Or perhaps you’re stuck at work and can’t pick your dog up in time? Whatever your situation, we’ve got a team of experienced dog handlers available to help get your dog to and from Doggie Daycare, Dog Grooming or Training on time with our pickup and drop off service!
