Jan Gullick's home in Cary, Illinois is adjacent to the 8th hole at Chalet Hills Golf Course. After receiving her certification as an Illinois state groomer from Academy of Dog Grooming Arts, Jan opened Grooming on the Green. Since then, it's been bustling with activity as dogs arrive dirty and leave beautifully groomed. Many of the salon's clients drop off their pets, play a round of golf, have lunch at the Clubhouse, and then pick up their freshly washed pet from Grooming on the Green. Grooming on the Green is serving the Cary, Crystal Lake, Wauconda, Island Lake, Fox River Grove, Barrington, and surrounding areas.
Our name is also meant to convey that we are a truly 'green' products groomer. We use products that have natural botanicals and that are safe for the environment. These products contain no fillers, thickeners, harsh additives, oils, or lanolin. Our products are pH balanced for pet's skin, and are biodegradable, environmentally-friendly, and cruelty- free.
Aside from its location on a golf course, Grooming on the Green has several key elements that make it a unique grooming salon. First being in a home setting, pets are welcomed into a quieter and calmer environment. Grooming on the Green offers tranquility not usually found in the grooming environment. Our clients pets do not have to spend the whole day here. They are booked with a grooming appointment similar to you making your hair cut appointment. Unless you are planning to play a round of golf while your pet is groomed your pet is usually here only around three hours.
Perhaps the most unique feature of Grooming on the Green, especially for many dog owners in these tough economic times, is that prices are in line with other grooming shops. For certain breeds grooming is a necessity, not a luxury. We try to offset owners' expenses by offering free upgrades, miscellanous discounts throughout the year and a referral program. We're always trying to find some little 'extra' to give back to our clients.
Grooming on the Green also sells excellent treats, dog food and toys at great prices. We have a small retail area which allows our customers to purchase the necessities when they are getting their dog groomed. It saves them time and money and they love it. See our Boutique page for some of our shop items offered for sale.
