• BEST DOG GROOMER IN CHICAGOLAND

    ...so says the Chicago Tribune! Call us to schedule your grooming appointment! 847-LUV-DOGS (847-588-3647).

    We have the area's ONLY TheraClean Microbubble machine, which is used to treat a variety of skin and coat conditions. In addition, our microbubble treatments are singularly effective against removing skunk smell from your dog, and we will always work to immediately accommodate dogs who have been skunked.

    Please CALL US to schedule an appointment (847-LUV-DOGS) any time! Please note we cannot schedule grooming via email - there are simply too many variables to discuss in scheduling.

    When scheduling a grooming you can reserve a recurring appointment, guaranteeing the day and time of your choice for the rest of the year, or schedule the one appointment you need now. 

    Thank you!

  • Testimonials

  • 100% improvement in our Shih Tzu Max's chronic awful foot fungal infection after Love Fur Dog's amazing microbubble treatments. And such a common condition! His feet have been so bad for so long, he had become depressed, unwilling to move around on them, they were painful and bloody. Now he is walking again, jumping back to normal activity. The friendly, caring staff has really helped our beloved dog who was truly suffering. THANK YOU!

    Lydia W.

  • So incredibly happy! Same price as my old groomer- way better cut.

    Margaret R

  • We took our puppy to Love Fur Dogs and were DELIGHTED with the entire experience. Friendly, knowledgeable owner and staff, loving environment and wonderful results. We will be returning! Love watching our girl prance around the house – she knows she looks great.
