Imagine that you’re a full-time, stay-at-home dog parent. You spend all day caring for your fur baby, socializing with other dogs, getting plenty of exercise, attending to their every canine need… BEEP! BEEP! BEEP! Wake up! Your alarm is going off and you’re going to be late for work! Even if you don’t live in this dream world, under the dedicated care of these top Chicago doggy daycares, your lucky pupling still can.
With a beautiful natural setting next to the Chicago River, a massive facility, webcams, and highly-trained dog handlers, this spot has all you could ever ask for.
One glowing testimonial: “Visited many daycares that did not work for our high-energy large breed puppy, and loved this one! The live webcam is great; you can see what your dog is up to during playtime. The staff has also been very flexible, attentive, and friendly.”
This daycare, vet clinic, groomer, and trainer (yes, all at once!) fulfills its goal of making life better for dogs and humans alike through the three “C’s”: care, communication, and convenience.
One glowing testimonial: “My dog loves coming to PUPs pet club. She has done the training, pet play, and grooming and we are always very satisfied with all services. They take good care of the pups and video to watch furry friends during the day. Great healthy treats that my dog loves. Definitely go to PUPS!”
Tucker Pup’s Pet Resort offers dog boarding, dog daycare, grooming, positive-reinforcement training, and retail items. All of this is supported by an impeccably clean facility, a fantastic staff, and cutting-edge pet care technology.
One glowing testimonial: “My dog loves coming here for daycare, boarding, and grooming. The staff is helpful and always gives notes on how he did during the day. I am so thankful for all they have done for us.”
Urban Pooch Canine Life Center
Urban Pooch was voted Best Doggie Day Care in the Reader’s Best of Chicago Poll, and for good reason: this spot offers some of the best daycare, “cage-free” boarding, and pup retail around. Plus, with the newly-introduced “Playtime Express,” Urban Pooch offers pickup and drop-off seven days a week.
One glowing testimonial: “Can’t say enough good stuff about these people. Wonderful attitudes, polite, clean professional facility. They have done great work helping us raise our little Beagle and we recommend them very highly!”
Found Chicago Boarding & Training Center
Found offers pup-notch daycare, boarding, grooming, and training with an experienced staff and a pawful lot of love.
One glowing testimonial: “I have been taking my dog to Found for the last three years and couldn’t be happier with the organization or their services — from training to boarding and doggy daycare to grooming, Found does it all and they do it well.”
Now you know, friends: Chicago has great doggy daycares to make your furry friend feel thoroughly pampered. Go forth with this knowledge in hand, and tag pics of your puplet with #SidewalkDog on Instagram for a chance to be featured.
