The term "holistic" refers to approaching a task or mission as a whole rather than just focusing on the individual parts. At Howlistic Grooming we understand the importance of where you take your pet to be groomed. It is an experience that is going to follow your pet throughout his or her lifetime. This experience should be as stress free and as pleasing as possible.
That is why we choose all natural eco-friendly products and grooming techniques that have been deliberately designed to unite the body, mind, and spirit of your dog and to heal the negative affects that our sometimes toxic environment puts
Dogs have a particular sensitivity towards our emotional unrest and stress. Because they are loyal and determined to bring us joy they sometimes carry the burden of that stress within themselves. That's why Howlistic Grooming only chooses products that combine oils, herbs, botanical and flower essences specifically to help soothe and ease their minds as we groom and clean their skin and fur.
Show your appreciation for your loved one, whose only job is to be of service and joy to you. Wellness in mind, body, and spirit is well worth the effort.

a few words About the Owner
The Howlistic Groomer started his career as an apprentice 18 years ago in Columbus Ohio. After managing the grooming facility within a veterinarian hospital for 3 years his talents brought him to Chicago, where he took up work in the prestigious Gold Coast neighborhood for 9 years at the high volume salon known as Pawsitively.
Through his own personal philosophy and observation he recognized a growing trend in illness, and disease commonly prone to humans. He saw the need for a 'Holistic Approach' to the art of grooming. Not just grooming the physical, but spirit and mind as well.
Dogs and Cats alike share an intrinsic connection to humans. So he created Howlistic to give them just what they needed: a spa day. One full of pleasant smells and soothing touch. To put them at ease and show them they are loved, and appreciated. Remembering that all living things share that need.
