Groomer in NW burbs of Chicago?

I am so angry. After bringing Molly & Henry to the groomer, they came back with a good portion of their fur cut short because the groomer didn't pay attention to me. I had told the groomer that I wanted them groomed to standard (show dog), with the exception of the fur on their backsides--I ask that they trim this up during winter because it gets very messy in the winter.

My babies came back with almost half their fur trimmed up (front, tummy, ears...) So much for the holiday photos. This is not the first groomer I have gone to that has no idea how to groom a golden.

Does anyone know of a groomer somewhere in the north/northwest suburbs of Chicago that actually knows how to groom a golden properly? If I wanted a poor quality grooming, I'd save the money and trim them myself.

Mokena is about an hour and a half away, assuming no traffic--probably a bit too far--although, I might consider the trip if I can't find anyone closer.

Let me know if you want the contact information for the breeder/groomer in Mokena. She's been grooming goldens forever. Has lovely dogs herself.

Hi Karen--I'm in Volo--which is about 30 minutes north of Arlington Heights.
Also, sorry about the delayed response--I had to get a new computer because the old one decided to give out. I'm up and running again.

Thank you--I will keep it in mind if I am unable to find anything closer.

This is an older post but I do know of a great lady in Sycamore who grooms Goldens exclusively. She is really good.

I really wish I could find a good groomer in the burbs. We had one, but unfortunately Flora had bad experiences with their doggy day care (my fault; I should have never have put her in that situation), and it got so difficult trying to get her INTO the building that I had to switch groomers. Her current groomer is okay, but oh, the other one did such an impeccable job on her. I miss that!

I'm gonna bump this up as I just picked up Flora from a new groomers and... she looks terrible. Her ears were just BUTCHERED and she looks so sad. The rest of her body is okay, but I'm going to have to try to salvage her ears somehow.

If anyone has any recommendations for the Wheaton/Winfield/Naperville area (although I'd be willing to drive 30-45 minutes) please let me know. Thanks!
