droppedImage_14Sparky and Ginger Fisset have been coming to your “beauty shop” for about 3years. They always get excited about the concept of seeing other dogs. When they’re done, they always look so clean and pretty. Thank you for being such an animal lover.

droppedImage_13I get so many compliments on how beautifully both my Shih Tzu are groomed! Seeing Carmella and Chandler so happy and excited to be in your shop shows how much they both look forward to coming over. The atmosphere in your shop with you and staff says it all. I am so happy and very lucky that I met you so many years ago.

droppedImage_12My Cat Guy (alias Damien, according to other groomers) is not a happy cat when taken out of his castle. He is 20 pounds, strong, and very vocal. I work at an animal hospital and I have a hard time handling my own cat. Guy has been banned from many grooming shops until my husband found Cathy at Jimminy Clippers—she is heaven sent. She knows how to handle and talk to Guy, and what a wonderful job she does on his beautiful hair cut. He likes going to her. When his hair grows back it is so shiny and beautiful. We get many compliments. We will always bring our cats to Cathy.

droppedImage_11We have been coming to Jimminy Clippers for about 20 years. When we started we lived in Rolling Meadows. We now live in the Ingleside area. We have been making this drive every six weeks for six years, because we love Cathy and all the girls at Jimminy Clippers. All our dogs love them too. They get so excited when we tell them it is bath time.

droppedImage_10Cathy from Jimminy Clippers has been grooming my dogs for over 27 years. I wouldn’t take my pets to anyone else. Even my kids take their pets to her, too. She is so great with animals and her facility is always clean and welcoming. I always recommend Jimminy Clippers to my clients for their pet grooming needs.

droppedImage_9We have been coming to Jimminy Clippers since the early 1980’s. Cathy and her staff are the best! People comment on how great our dogs look, and all of our dogs seem to truly enjoy their experiences at the shop. Throughout all these years, whenever we would mention “groomer,” every one of our dogs would readily jump into the car, excited to go. We have always had complete confidence that our pets are getting the best care in their hands. It is obvious to us that Jimminy Clippers is far and above the most professional grooming facility around. Our present dog, Rocky, has adopted Cathy as his second mother and he even enjoys spending time there when we are out of town.

droppedImage_8I have been taking my cats to Jimmy Clippers for 8 years. In that time I have lived in Palatine, Barrington, Lake in the Hills, back to Palatine, and now Cary and have driven the distance from each location. I can always trust the girls to take wonderful care of Matty and Milo and treat them like they would their own pets. They do a fabulous job!!!

droppedImage_6Lorraine and I wanted you to know how happy we are to have you groom and care for our two Cocker Spaniels. The fact that Boo and Bonkers were quite different from each other proves how expert you are in getting them to be beautiful. Bonkers was the queen and Boo is the princess. No one else has ever groomed them.

droppedImage_5I have been coming to Jimminy Clippers to have my dogs groomed for 16 years, first with Oreo the Lhasa Apso/Bichon and now with Hazel the Shih Tzu. They do a fantastic job and Hazel always looks so beautiful after her day at the spa. It’s apparent that all the groomers really love dogs by the care and gentleness that they show our furry friends.

droppedImage_3No grooming facility in Chicago’s northwest suburbs matches the dedication and friendly service that Jimminy Clippers offers. They provide a clean, friendly, and welcoming environment with affordable prices. Top notch expertise with fancy cats and all breeds of dogs makes regular grooming an enjoyable experience for both my pets and me. Whether going for a standard cut or even a new look, we would not settle for anything less than Cathy and her crew! Thank you for being so wonderful!

droppedImage_1The staff at Cathy’s Jimminy Clippers are very patient with Kody who can be a bit hyper active. Kody tends to be nervous around other people and dogs but he is okay with being groomed and walks in on his own. Kody always looks very good and smells nice when he comes home from Jimminy Clippers. Thank you, Cathy, for taking good care of Kody.

droppedImageJimminy Clippers has been Zeus’s home away from home for almost 10 years. Whether it is a quick visit to get a haircut, or an extended stay while we are out of town, we never worry about Zeus. It has made our travels so much easier knowing that he is in good and loving hands at home. We actually moved out to Lake in the Hills 7 years ago and while it is a bit out of the way to drive back to Palatine to groom and board him, we would never think of taking him anywhere else. They have become like family to us and we are grateful for the wonderful care they show Zeus.

After we adopted Luna, our 2 year old german shepherd, I was so happy to find Jimminy Clippers. Everyone we met was nice and professional and seem to genuinely care about the animals left in their care. Luna always leaves Jimminy Clippers looking refreshed and beautiful in her new scrunchie. Thank you Jimminy Clippers!

I’ve tried other pet salons in the past, but Jimminy Clippers is the best by far (AWESOME). Great cut!

You did a very nice job of getting the matts out of my cat Rocco. I was very nervous when I brought him at first, he had never been to a groomer. But when I met you and the staff, I felt better.

Thanks for always taking such good care of our English Spaniels – first Nike, next Jesse and now Kenzie, over the past 15 years! You have always treated our pets so kindly and done such an excellent job! We would never go to any other dog groomer.

Just want to let you know we are so thankful for your services. Ariel our kitty was just given a beautiful complete haircut and looks simply cute as can be. Who would have thought of grooming cats, all my cats I have had over years never got cut–fast forward to 2011…the ladies are very talented and wonderful and they really know their job. I strongly recommend Jimminy Clippers! Thank you ladies!

I just brought Curley home and once again he looks beautiful. You always do a great job with both of our Shih Tzu mixes. Thank you also for being kind to both pets and owners.  You make us feel welcome and you never make us feel badly for bringing in a dog that needs a knot removed or a good bath. Your love for animals is apparent in all you do.

Thank you for the terrific job that you do grooming Scooby and Ellie. From the first time I brought them to Jimminy Clippers, you trimmed them exactly how I wanted them to be–and I love Ellie’s bows!  The dogs love you too. They are eager to jump out of the car the minute we pull up to the “pink poodle place.” We hope you will be our groomer forever.

Thank you, Cathy, for grooming my white long-haired cat Captain Sonny Pearl. After 7 years of “spit grooming” himself I decided to have him professionally groomed at Jimminy Clippers. He came home with a shiny coat that not only smelled fabulous, but was free from excess hair that was left at the shop rather than on my couch. He was shiny, sleek, smelled fresh, and looked thinner than ever. He shed noticeably less for an entire month. Sonny had to feel great too!

I chose Jimminy Clippers because it is the only grooming salon in the Chicagoland are that is owned and operated by a licensed professional. Cathy has completed the training required for the titles Certified Master Groomer and Certified Master Feline Groomer. She is the only groomer that I will trust with my cat Sonny.

Just a little follow up…You shaved my cat Sunday 2/24 and when she got there she was scared and her fur was a big mess. Now she is just beautiful! You did a terrific job! Thank you so much for all your patience in dealing with her.

Thank you, Cathy, for the great haircut that you gave my cat Gracie. It looks so natural that you would think that Gracie was born a short haired cat. With all of Gracie’s long hair cut off, it helps so much with keeping my carpet and couches from having cat hair all over them. Thanks again, Cathy.

Well, our little Molly arrived home smelling like “roses” or something like that and looking pretty! All because of your expert grooming efforts. Thank you for keeping her in shape since we met you in ’07!
