Tails In The City
Bring on the cute stuff. You know what we're talking about. The polka-dotted, ruffled, she-hates-to-wear-this outfit you stuff your dog into before you hop on Skype with Mom. Every collar, carrier, or leash you ever wished came in something other than black or pink is under one roof. Remember to control yourself. Heel.

Our reasons for loving Soggy Paws are threefold. 1) They deliver. (Remember the blizzard?!) 2) They have an amazing selection of pet food that focuses on your pet's health and well-being, and keeps the bad stuff out of that shiny silver bowl on the floor. 3) The Frequent Feeder Program. Hello! Can you think of anyone who loves free food more than your pet? Ok, maybe your boyfriend.

Yes, this editor is obsessed with the name. But, there are some really legit reasons for checking this one out, too. When adopting a new pet, pet-parents don't always have the answers to the...charming trials of training. Wigglyville is known as a must for anyone learning to train a new pet. The staff totally get it, and they'll teach you how to teach your lil' friend. Wigglyville, 3337 North Broadway Avenue (between Buckingham Place and Roscoe Street); 773-528-3337.

Every Chicagoan who is plus-pet but minus-car knows it's close-to-impossible to handle even small tasks with a pet, like getting them to the veterinarian or groomer. Paws Around Chicago specializes in pet transportation services of all kinds (imagine, for a second, moving with your cat. Yeah). Make your next excursion a cinch.
