Bubbles and Brushes for Paws is rated 5.0 out of 5 stars, based on 81 reviews!
The owners of Bubbles and Brushes in Oak Park are wonderful and do an excellent job with our Hayden.
They are kind, knowledgeable, and service costs are reasonable.
We’ve been coming here for 3.5 years and I highly recommend this salon for your “pup” no matter his/her age — they are the best!
I take my dogs to her all the time. I was referred by my mother whom takes her dogs all the time best place ever. My dog Spud really doesnt like grooming so I used to take him to a place that was very expensive, because they stated he needed to be sedated but thats not true this place manage to groom him with no problem and the price you really cant beat.
Great local business, wonderful owners who love your babies and treat them kindly. Everything is out in the open so you can see all they do.
LOVE THIS BUSINESS. They do wonderfully with pets and owners. My dog Indy comes out looking great.
I gave Bubbles and Brushes a try after a lukewarm experience at another groomer. I am completely sold on the experience and quality of grooming. The check in process was smooth and they even learned the name of each dog. Time was given to clarify services and expectations. Services were completely a very reasonable amount of time and the pups looked, smelt, and felt fantastic - with no skin cuts or uneven trims. Upon check out, I was helped leashing them up, which can be trying with two pups who want to give a zillion kisses. B&B has a new monthly customer!
I think they did an excellent job.
Staff was polite and they do beautiful work
I can't say enough about this place. Competent, kind, and best of all, real animal loves. It shows!
This is my first time visiting this pet salon and it was a great experience. The staff was friendly and took good care of my pooch Peppa.
my dog loved it great service
Great staff and location is convenient to my house. Only problem I have had is getting ahold of them to schedule an appointment some times.

What a great addition to the neighborhood-small and friendly-not like some of those places with 15 barking dogs
Place is clean and owners are friendly
This place is a hidden gem. Shhhh dont tell! I am so funny about taking my dog to groomers because I dont like the hidden work done behind closed doors. This place is open, and everyone sees how they handle the animals. My dogs love coming to this place. I have a dog on anxiety medication and she just walks right in and obviously isnt excited to be there but shes not trembling afraid. Give this local spot a chance, you wont regret it and your pocket will also thank you for it! We love them!
I think they did an awesome job.
The owners are so nice, they always find a time during the busy schedule to do nails and trim face for my little miss Coco. I highly recommend this place to any dog owner.
I really like this place. My dog got his nails cut and the guy doing it was very professional. He was constantly reassuring my dog, who hates getting his nails cut. And everything was done out in the open, so you can see everything happening. Plus the price was super reasonable.
EXCELLENT. My dogs are my babies, and unfortunately, they have grown old (14-1/2 each). One is a puppy mill cocker spaniel mix named Obi, the other is a schnauzer-poodle mix named Sadie. Obi has developed multiple skin conditions that necessitate he get bathed about every other day with a prescription shampoo. That's when I took him to Bubbles and Brushes (on the recommendation of my vet at PetVets).
The people who own and run this business are excellent. They will make your dog look great. Not only that, but even though Obi is a pain in the butt (he's high drama), they care about your dog. They are the best groomers I've ever used in my 20+ years of having pets, and that's really saying something.
Bubbles and Brushes has been instrumental in making Obi healthier and he is much happier for it. They are accommodating, nice, and much more reasonably priced than Yuppy Puppy (or whatever it's called). They are also the proud owners of Coco, who is a magnificent dog who knows he's magnificent. They will not, however, sell him, and have politely refused my many offers for Coco. I still believe that one day Coco shall be mine.
Bring your cats and dogs here. This is a business that cares about the animals and the people, too. I cannot recommend them highly enough.
Friendly staff, extremely competent in their craft, fair pricing, and punctual. If you have a problem with any of this, you should go elsewhere. They are good listeners with perfect memories for your preferences. I like that they don't perform any procedures on our dog which we haven't explicitly requested. We highly recommend their services.
I have two Yorkies and have specific instructions on individual grooming. Groomers are Awesome!!! Always friendly, work with your schedule. And though one of my puppies is strong willed and barks up a storm..they still have us back! This is the best place to trust your best friend with. Highly recommend it!!
Love this place. The owners are so good with the dogs and it's priced very reasonably.
We have been bringing Gretchen to Gus and Amada since she was 3 months old she's 2 yrs now and have been going every 5 to 6 weeks. She knows the door and is jumping up and down to get in. They treat Gretchen like their own. To me their family . Would not try any other place.
We bring our puppy here all the time, she's extremely anxious and Gustavo and his wife always do a great job with her. The fact that there is limited capacity in house allows for a more peaceful environment. We get so many compliments when she gets groomed here because they always manage to make her look like a stuffed animal. Our dog just loves them! And so do we!
Great place. Good people to cut your pets hair
Very nice & friendly
They are just so kind, loving and gentle with our dog!
Wonderful experience! Took our 6yo cat here and the owners were so knowledgeable walking us through the whole process and giving us tips along the way. Great job at a wonderful price. I'm so thankful this place exists.
My dog has been going to Bubbles and Brushes for the past 2 years. Everyone there is very friendly and responsive. Plus my pup actually likes going there so it makes it that much easier to love them.
I took my parents skittish and very nervous chihuahua here and TBH I was half expecting them to tell me to never come back lol (no big shock he's a 20lbs terror). They told me he was well behaved and very calm while getting his services, they must be specialized in witchcraft. Either way I came back to a happy pup that was squeaky clean and looked immaculate. Truly a god send imo and I'll be bringing this tiny guy back.
(He's really a good boy but not fond of strangers)
Wonderful experience! Took our
7yo cat here and the owners were

LOVED my experience with Bubbles and Brushes (and so did my dog). The grooming they provided was perfect! The shop is quaint and very clean. The staff and ownership were also wonderfully pleasant to work with! :-)
The only place that can groom my labradoodle the proper way
Gus was great with our large pup, Vita, who absolutely hates getting her nails trimmed. We've tried desensitizing her for months when it comes to her nails - but she's still very scared of nail trims and filing. He let us come in at the end of the day when no other dogs were around so it would be less stressful for her and for others. He was wonderful - quick and safe. We're glad Bubbles and Brushes is in the neighborhood!

Gus was so great. He was patient and kind with our very large and very scared pup! It was simply a nail trim but it was a big deal to us since she is terrified and hates getting her nails done. Thanks, Gus!!!
After years of scheduling grooming appointments 8 weeks in advance, buying overcharged to pay for renovations, and having my dog's leg cut by a groomer who wasn't "overly concerned"...I am delighted to have found Bubbles and Brushes in Oak Park.
You can call and get an appointment within a few days, it's small and intimate so they don't overbook and leave your pet in a kennel waiting to be staged, the staff is highly skilled, personable and friendly. My dog shows no trauma after the grooming, unlike the busier establishments in the area.
I highly recommend this business!!!
Great quality at reasonable prices. Way! better than my experience at large pet chains.
They know dogs so you can be confident they'll be in good hands.
Support local businesses!
We took our beloved bichon frise here after carefully searching for a groomer for the first time since my daughter usually does this and takes all the time needed to leave our puppy looking "nice and fluffy", but a very busy schedule made it hard for her to take proper care during the last weeks, and unfortunately more knots than wanted happened... My daughter's main concern was to find someone who would take care and --especially- have the patience to try to take as many knots out without just giving up quickly and solving the issue by fully shaving him at then having him look like a rat :-) Well, not at all! They listened to all our requests and concerns, and they really put their time, effort, and love to give us back an adorable looking pup, PERFECT job. Our dog looks even cuter now than before :-) They made their best to leave some hair, and the trimming they made gives him back the adorable puppy face :-) We are so pleased we found Bubbles and Brushes, and we will continue going there now very often. GREAT JOB and very fair price!!! Thank you so much!!
I have been on a search for a new groomer. At my regular groomer the drop off time was 7-8am for all pets and then they sit and wait their turn. I wanted to find someone who set apt time and someone who doesn't have a lot of idle wait time for pets. We tried another groomer a few months back which was very dramatic and upsetting, so I was very nervous for this test drive with Bubbles.
However I decided to take a chance with Bubbles & Brushes. I brought my puppy in for full works. He is a 14lb Shichon (it is cross between Bichon Fris and Shih Tzu). I love how my baby looks. He is nice and fluffy and face is perfect. When you drop off your pets you can see their facility, it's an open floor model, they are not hiding anything. I love that they set a time for you and then you come back as soon as he's done. My pup seemed less stressed after this groom when we got home and was playful right away. They were even able to do a mohawk!!! I am definitely coming back, I believe we have found our new groomer!!! Thank you for being there, Bubbles & Brushes, and doing what you do, we all can tell that you care as well about our fur babies.
This place is wonderful, very clean and smells good. When you walk in you get the feeling that they love all 4 and 2 legged customers. My little guy got bad grooming at another place and these people came to my rescue. They made him look cute again, I am so thankful and happy. I lost a few nights worrying about how the previous place made my pup look. I am definitely coming back here to get the full works once my pups hair grows back. Thank you guys so much I can't wait to come back!!! You rock!!!
Top service every time! They do a fantastic job with my Burmese. He always looks so handsome when they finish. There's no other place we would go.
Thank you for quickly seeing my little dog for a nail clipping. You were super convenient and did a great job despite a reluctant pooch.
Bubbles and Brushes does a fabulous job on our shih tzu! She doesn't seem scared to go here, and always leaves happy and pretty. Easy to get an appointment here and they are almost always finished with her in 2 hours. We also love the giant poodle who works the front desk :-)
Hello. Can I make an appointment for this Saturday, 7/21, at 1 pm for my dog, Mila, to be groomed? Please email me confirmation at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you.
By far the nicest people I have ever met!! They went above and beyond helping me clean my dying dog Baxter’s eyes that had gotten so matted with his meds so that he could be comfortable in his last days. I can’t thank them enough for their generosity, patience, understanding and unbelievable kindness! They are the best of humanity!! ?
Quick, very calm and caring with my dog :)
This is a wonderful groomer for cats. I have a long hair white cat and they trim him beautifully
I brought my five month Airedale terrier for his first grooming. And they did an amazing job! They were very patient and professional. I will definitely continue to bring my boy to this place.
I took my Shih Tzu here for a very overdue groom. She looks great. It took exactly 2 hours.
The shop is small, clean, simple. All of the dogs were calm and relaxed. My dog was stress free when she left.
It seems to be a family run business. Both on the phone and in person they were pleasant, accommodating, and professional.
Easy to find street parking in a mostly residential neighborhood.
I recommend the shop and will return.
They are so nice and our groomer-anxious always leaves happy amd looking great!
They are so nice, professional, and do such a good job. Even our dog Wrigley enjoys going.
Great job making our German Shepherd take his bath! Our rescue 11 month old is not with his quirky traits. He was not trained properly as a pup and has issues. I called the day before his grooming and asked for a time when no other dogs were around because this dog barks like crazy at other dogs(an issue we are working on). He apparently doesn't like being showered either but with a lot of patience and kind determination the GSD now looks great. I would recommend this company wholeheartedly!
I love the place, the guy is always nice and loving with the pets, I ve seen it!
Got Luna's ears cleaned and nails trimmed for $15 such nice people and Latino owned!!! I thought Luna was going to be a nightmare but they were able to handle her (which I couldn't) without incident! Ended up giving them $30 because of how impressed I was! Will be taking Luna and Shinobi there often
I absolutely love this place for my little Mia!! The owners are the sweetest people and really care about my pup baby. I will go nowhere else in oak park to have my fur baby groomed. They are the best!
Brought our two little poodle mixes in on Saturday. They came out looking great! Fast and friendly!
I am so pleased with how Bubbles and Brushes accommodated Bear, my 75 lb, double coated rescue who came with serious behavioral issues and who is still very reactive to other dogs. We mutually decided to muzzle him for everyone's safety because he becomes frightened very easily. They let me stay with him to help keep him calmer. He came out clean, soft and dander free. We'll be back. This was the first time in the six years I've had him that I was able to find a groomer who was able to meet our needs.
Great job with my boys. Will definitely be back!
Soliel always looks and smells great when I pick her up. Thanks for everything!
I brought Maslow there this morning not knowing what to expect. The service was incredibly friendly, professional and they were not at all phased by the sometimes snarly temperament of our schnoodle. The price was more than reasonable - and the result was superb. My guy looks amazing!!!
Thanks for making my shih-tzu so happy and clean! Great service! See you soon!
This groomer is amazing. The dog whisperer I dare say. Their shop is cute and parking is always available on the street. Our dog loved this groomer and she had barely met him. We felt that these folks are genuine dog people. They made our doggy look like a dream. Thanks for taking your time with our little old lady:)
My tripawed had a wonderful experience with her bath, shedding treatment, and nail trim. She was very happy when I picked her up, and very clean! The groomers are friendly, kind, skilled, and very professional. They are patient and gentle with their clients, and the shop was clean and quiet. I highly recommend Bubbles and Brushes for Paws : )
De lo mejor de Chicago buen servicio y se expresa mucho amor a las mascotas..
Both my pups come here. They are a new business that opened up two blocks away. It's fun to see their Facebook posts and recognize the neighborhood doggies. While it is a small space it is clean and welcoming. Prices are reasonable as well.
Love this place! Made an appointment here when I could not get in at our normal groomer (Yuppie Puppy) for THREE weeks. Not only did we get an appointment same week, they did a great job on our toy goldendoodle. It's the best haircut he's had in his 8 years and it was less expensive and just far more convenient for parking and our location in general. Highly recommend.
Super clean place! Great pricing at only $45 for a full grooming. They also got me in on short notice. Will be back again!
Excellent service, clean facility. Nice people.
This is a wonderful groomer in Oak Park. Just opened less than a year ago, it's a clean open facility run by the nicest people. They truly put the animals first and they do a beautiful job! After we picked up our girl we discovered we had left something on the counter, and when we returned to get it she RAN back in wanting to go back in to the grooming area!!!!!! That is truly a first. Not only are they experienced groomers but they are so kind and patient with their "clients"! We will never go anywhere else for grooming. Thank you B & B :)
Ama and Gustavo took excellent care of my two cats. Very patient and skilled. They also groomed my dog wonderfully. We live half hour drive away but don't mind. It is well worth it. Highly recommend.
Able to get in quickly with friendly service. They did a nice job and accommodated when I brought him back the next day for a bit more length off top and tail. Our boy was fine returning - not convenes about hopping back up on the table. Covers all our bases - friendly, efficient, clean, kind. Thanks!
We can't say enough wonderful things for this groom shop. It's truly a hidden gem. These people are patient and animals clearly love them. We took our dog who was kicked out of pets mart and yuppy puppy because her anxiety was over the roof and she would bite the dryers . It appears to be that at bubbles and brushes the environment is so peaceful that the animals are clearly comfortable staying here. We felt safe leaving our troubled dog. She wasn't even a bit anxious when we dropped her off, this is a miracle. When we picked her up she didn't even look like my dog. If you're looking for a more slow paced peaceful environment and a place that won't agitate your dog, come here. The shop is cute and parking is always available right in front. It was a smooth and easy pick up and drop off.
We have a dog that has severe anxiety and going to the groomer can be challenging for all involved. I was at my wit's end trying to find a groomer that could manage her. After seeing the reviews on yelp, I called and asked if they would take my difficult dog. Bubbles and Brushes suggested bringing Chelsea in at day's end when it would be quiet in the shop. Great idea. She was calm and relaxed the whole time. I'm so relieved that we finally found a place that can groom her beautifully and keep her calm. Also, the prices are very reasonable.
Gus did a great job trimming our dog, Lu'Lu's nails. She really hates getting her nails trimmed and Gus let me go and pet Lu'Lu to help calm her down. He was quick and safe with her nails!
Been here twice. Love it. People who work there are nice. It is clean and professional. Highly recommend this place! Additionally my dog isn't freaking out when she leaves like most places
Saw this place on my way to the Brown Elephant and was happy to see it since I was looking for a new groomer. Took my dogs Shutu & Sebastian . They are very friendly & did a great job I've found a new groomer.
I've been looking for a groomer in Oak Park so when this place popped up I thought it was the perfect opportunity to try a new groomer for my dog. And let me tell you that it was a great decision. I dropped my dog off at 8 a.m. and she was done before 9 a.m. She got the partial grooming with her nails clipped. When I picked her up she smelled fantastic, her nails looked great and she has not been shedding as much. I will absolutely return.
This place JUST opened (on December 28, 2017) and we couldn't be happier! The couple who owns the shop is super, super nice. We did a full groom and a deshedding treatment on our tri-color welsh corgi. Total cost- $45. The full groom includes a wash, dry, trimming of the fur fluff (including his feet), nail trim, ear cleaning. The full groom is $35 and the deshedding was an extra $10 (which they did "on the house" this time because he really needed it but they didn't ask ahead of time. Wow. what a difference that treatment made). Our corgi dog has NEVER been softer. He had literal chunks of hair coming out of his legs (despite LOTS of brushing) before we went. He looks show dog worthy (if only he was that well trained...). The place is brand new, on Harrison street in the arts district of Oak Park and if they keep up their good work- will be here for a long time. They don't have a webpage yet but they do have a FB page people can check out.
Hope you get the chance to check them out. Currently, as of this date, they are walk in friendly because they have only been open a few weeks and are building their client list. We called ahead of time to make sure they weren't busy. They have three dogs of their own, who are in the shop but are very friendly. We are so, so glad that a groomer has come to OP. Our 100 year old pipes can't handle this volume of fur......
