Our Groomer


Chantal is our groomer and has been with us since August. Although new to Central Bark Gurnee, Chantal has been grooming dogs (and cats) since 2006, working for 2 years before that as a bather. Chantal’s transition here has been smooth and seamless, as evidenced by her full schedule of satisfied clients. Chantal loves animals and prides herself on her use of gentle techniques to make each groom a positive experience for the dog. She enjoys making them look and feel their best. When not working, Chantal spends her time home schooling her pre-school aged child and playing with her cat, Spartakitten (no dogs allowed in her building). When asked what she likes about working at Central Bark Gurnee, Chantal says she enjoys the genuine caring atmosphere and positive attitude. She loves how the dogs always seem happy to come in. We’re happy that Chantal has come to Central Bark Gurnee.

Do groomers sedate dogs?

No. At Central Bark®, we never sedate dogs in our salon. Our expert groomers always aim to help your dog feel as calm and relaxed as possible during their bathing and grooming experience.  

Suppose your dog has shown extreme stress or anxiety toward grooming in the past. In that case, we suggest speaking with a trusted veterinarian and one of our reward-based trainers about how we can best support your dog.
