Welcome to PupStars Pet Care!

Grooming at PupStars

Though many owners groom their dogs at home, it takes both time and effort to get an animal comfortable with the routine.  If your relationship with your pet is suffering due to grooming frustrations, let our star staff develop a foundation of trust with your animal.

Our head groomer aims to make your pet feel completely comfortable while in her care. Our grooming includes washing, ears, and nail trimming. We also offer other options available upon request.

Doggy Daycare and Boarding at PupStars

Did you know that more than 30 million pet owners regularly use experienced boarding kennel operators for secure and safe pet care? Our facility offers luxury boarding suites with glass walls, air purifiers, UV lightning (to minimize viruses) and more. We want your pup to get first-class treatment in their home-away-from-home, and aim to make their stay relaxing and stress-free.

Meanwhile, our daycare includes indoor and outdoor space, anti-shock flooring, and fully supervised play. All it takes to get your dog in the door is a temperament test and proof of vaccinations. A typical day depends on the needs and tolerance of your pet.

Dog Walking and Transportation

If you're in need of home visits for dog walking or transportation to and from our facility, we do that too. A meet-and-greet can be set up with our staff in your home to get a rundown of a typical day for your pet. Please note you must book dog walking 2 to 5 times a week to purchase one of our walk packages.

Our transportation zone runs Fullerton to 57th and Lake Michigan to Western.
