(PRWEB) January 17, 2012
Howlistic Grooming (http://www.howlisticgrooming.com), Chicago’s first holistically-focused pet grooming salon, has opened at 1258 S. Halsted St. in University Village Marketplace (http://www.uvmarketplace.com), a mix of dining, retail and service offerings in the heart of Chicago’s historic Maxwell Street.
Owner Anderson Tate, a pet groomer for 12 years – including the last nine years at Pawsitively on Chicago’s Gold Coast -- has created a spa-like atmosphere full of smells and touches that are soothing to animals. He uses only eco-friendly products (including oils, herbs, botanical and flower essences) and grooming techniques (no muzzles) that are designed, he says, to “unite the body, mind, and spirit of the dog and heal the negative effects that our sometimes toxic environment puts on them.”
“Dogs have a particular sensitivity toward humans’ emotional unrest and stress,” says Tate. “Our goal is to put them at ease and show them that they are loved and appreciated.”
Howlistic Grooming specializes in the needs of large-breed dogs. It also offers special services for ill, aged or disabled pets, as well as those with severely matted coats or behavioral problems.
Hours are 7:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday; 7:30 a. to 4 p.m. Saturday (closed Sunday).
Walk-ins are welcome, but appointments are preferred. For more information, visit http://www.howlisticgrooming.com or call 312-733-3340.
