• I’m Going To The Groomer – The Love Fur Dogs Pet Taxi

  • Annie Burch is a beautiful 11 year old Bichon Frise that lives in Wilmette. What a joy it is every month grooming such a beautiful dog for such a nice family that truly loves and takes excellent care of their now senior citizen, one sweet smart little puff ball of gorgeous curly white hair.


    One special aspect of my regular grooming relationship with Annie Burch is that due to medical restriction, her mom asked if I could pick her up and deliver her back home each month. I was happy to add that service. And when the Burch family this year added a new gorgeous little guy, an adorable Yorkie in full coat, to their household, my cargo became doubly precious.

    The Burch family reminds me not only of what devoted caring pet parents there are in our community. They also affirmed for me that for various good reasons there are many North Shore residents who might prefer that we pick up and deliver their dogs and cats for grooming.

    We love our convenient location in the Hubbard Woods Plaza shopping center – the only part of Hubbard Woods that has a for-real parking lot in front of all the businesses. We also know that seniors, working families, busy parents, the disabled, and just about anyone who is short on time might want to avail themselves of our new “Pet Taxi”.


    Not only will we pick up and deliver your four-legged family members from their grooming day out with us, but we also have drivers that can run your pet to the veterinarian, or to the boarding kennel, or to the airport, or wherever you might need them delivered.

    We hope you will have as much fun as we are having already seeing the reaction of our neighbors as the Love Fur Dogs green-on-fuel hybrid rolls around town. The car even has our QR code on it that takes any smart phone right to our website. Thanks to our friend Chuck Hodes at BG Signarama for the great decals! Our service charge for pickup and delivery depends on distance from the shop – if you are within 2 miles, the service is $7.50 per trip. If you are within 5 miles, the charge is only $10 per trip. Further than that, call us for a quote.

    And know that we have a special placard in the glove compartment that says “The Annie Burchmobile” – dedicated to a dear friend, a beautiful and sweet Bichon who inspired the Love Fur Dogs Groomer Taxi in the first place.

    “My Bichon Frise Annie and I cannot wait for the opening of the newest dog grooming studio on the North Shore of Chicago, Love Fur Dogs! The owner has been our cherished groomer for several years. Jennifer and her staff specialize in giving the most fabulous groom I could have ever imagined with a level of loving care that you will not find anywhere else. I used to have to ‘pull’ Annie into the old groomer. She viewed it as punishment, shaking and fearful of the experience. It was painful to watch. Now, when she sees Jennifer, she is excited and goes with her willingly, which gives me great comfort. She comes home happy and beautiful, looking like a show dog! It is wonderful to have such a professional, locally owned dog groomer. I will never go anywhere else. ”  -Jennifer Burch, Wilmette, Illinois
