All of the pet food and treats that are sold in the retail section of the Streeterville shop are all natural, premium products sourced from the USA exclusively. The selection is excellent, however, if the pet food that a customer is currently feeding is not on the shelf, they will special order it and call the customer within a few days to inform them that it has arrived and is ready for pick up. City Pets guarantees that their entire line of merchandise will always be priced below In Stock items that are shipped from and sold by

The pets themselves are the real clients. City Pets takes special care in order to make each pet feel welcomed, safe, and secure during the grooming process. One of the ways they accomplish this, is by utilizes aromatherapy which has been shown to calm the nerves of more anxious dogs and cats. The essential oils are infused into the air on a continual basis throughout the salon during operation hours.

One-on-one attention means that animals never feel that they're alone. They are provided with dedicated attention from beginning to end of their grooming experience. No “assembly line” mentality exists at City Pets. In fact, pets are in and out as quickly as possible, usually within 1-2 hours. They believe that this method of scheduling is best for the wellbeing of the animal. Long, drawn out days at a grooming shop are unnecessary and, at times, frightening for the animal. Being crated alongside many other tense animals for hours at a time will only increase stress, and ultimately bring about exhaustion once they’re back home again. This type of business model, which is the norm in the industry, is only implemented to increase the bottom line of the grooming establishment. The owners of City Pets feel strongly about this issue and are committed to providing this unparalleled service at a price point equal to or less than their competition

Finally, City Pets never uses cages and instead offers each dog their very own 6 foot by 8 foot suite to relax in and enjoy until such time as mom and dad returns to pick them up.

Pet parents are urged to contact City Pets as soon as possible to secure an appointment for the upcoming holiday season. Grooming prices are very reasonable and an excellent value considering that a Full Groom is all inclusive… it includes ear cleaning, teeth cleaning, anal gland expression, nail trim and file, and hand blow dry. There are no surprises at the register!

Other important facts about City Pets include their discounted fee structure for frequent visitors (up to 30% off each groom), a generous loyalty program and a referral program which rewards current customers with a $10 gift card for sharing their own great experience at City Pets with each friend that decides to become a client.

All prospective customers are invited to attend the grand opening in order to get a better idea of the quality of service provided by their expert stylists and professional staff. Refreshments will be provided for both humans and dogs alike. For more information, visit the website at today.
