Dog Daycare

What Dogs Need Daycare?
  1. Puppies

    Socialization is especially important for puppies to mature into friendly outgoing adults. Not to mention those small bladders. Leaving puppies alone for hours can make potty training a difficult task to accomplish.

  2. Bad Dogs

    Often misbehaving when left alone is a result of separation anxiety. Dogs don’t understand why we have to leave and can become angry or sad. Exercise causes the release of endorphins in the brain which can give our dog an overall feeling of well-being.

  3. Little Dogs

    Little dogs have to potty more often; little bladders can not wait for 8 to 10 hours to relieve themselves. It is just as important for little dogs to exercise daily to get their legs, heart, and lungs going.

  4. Big Dogs

    Big dogs have lots of energy; daily exercise will help to maintain good cardiovascular health and weight. Dogs lacking in a good exercise regimen can become bored or restless and may develop troublesome traits such as digging, barking or chewing.

  5. Senior Dogs

    Arthritis is very common in senior dogs and maintaining a healthy weight as well as exercising those joints will help to improve mobility. Plus exercise keeps the muscles strong which helps to keep their joints stable. Even though older dogs tend to sleep more as they age, maintaining a low impact exercise program will help to keep your senior dog happy into the retirement years.

Full Service Grooming

Fur Salon Details

We are committed to excellent service and professional grooming treatments that are specially designed around you and your dog’s needs. This attention to detail will allow our client’s guardians to go about their daily business knowing their pets are being well cared for.

We book by appointment only. Monday-Friday 8am-5pm and Saturday 9am-5pm. This means at the time you drop off your dog for services they will be receiving their spa treatment within that hour. Head to tail, most dogs are back home smelling fresh and relaxed in no time! (Grooming takes about 90mins for a small-med dog with normal coat conditions, expect 3-4hrs for larger or matted pets)

If you are out and about for the day, you can add an extra $17.00 and pick your dog up when you want to. Your dog will be able to enjoy the relaxed daycare exercise area before and after they get cleaned up. Watch your dog’s enthusiasm grow the next time you say “bath time!” You will quickly notice them getting just as excited at drop off time as they are when you pick them up!

Prices are determined by breed, size of dog and condition of coat. Note that all prices are starting and approximate. For a more accurate price, the groomer must see your pet.

Grooming Packages

Don’t let your dog get matted! This will increase your grooming costs. We recommend grooming every 6-8 weeks, but of course, every breed is different so the length may vary. Navigate the tabs below for more details on our Fur Treatments. Call to make an appointment today 815-675-3877

Basic Fur Package

Prices vary with breed, call for more details

The best way to pamper your best friend is with a Spa Day! We start by thoroughly shampooing with one of our coat enhancing shampoos. We apply a luxurious and nourishing deep conditioning treatment that is great for long or short coats, followed by nail clipping, ear cleaning, a brush out and hair cut upon request. Refreshing all-natural Mango or relaxing Lavender cologne is also applied to leave your fur friend feeling and smelling great after their day at the Spa!

Two Paws

Additional $12.00 to your Basic Fur Package

This package includes everything from the Fur Basic Treatment plus trimming the nails, followed by nail grinding which smooths the rough edges on the nails while saving your floors from scratch marks. The hair on their paws is trimmed between their toes and on the paw pads as needed. Next, our popular tooth brushing using yummy fur friend approved toothpaste to freshen breath and clean teeth. Your Fur Friend will LOVE this treatment and so will your floors!

Three Paws

Shedding season is upon us, but we can help keep all that hair under control by reducing the amount of shedding hair by 60%-80%!

The bath is followed with a complete blow dry of the coat using our powerful forced-air drier and additional brushing time using special de-shedding tools, including the popular Furminator Tool. While shedding can be a bothersome aspect for our fur friend’s lives it doesn’t have to take over our homes and wardrobes! Bring your fur friend in for our Fur Buster treatment and see results in as little as 1 to 2 treatments. This treatment helps your pet to look and feel their best! This can make your pet’s treatment process a little longer then our 3-4 hours turn around depending on how thick the coat is.
