We do not recommend bringing bedding, blankets, or toys from home. You do need to bring your pet’s food if they are on a special diet, though we can provide food if necessary. Both food and medication should be in durable containers labeled with your pet’s name and directions. If you have instructions or requests, please let us know at drop-off.

Additionally, you can customize your pet’s stay further by adding on services such as extra cuddle time, peanut butter treats, and dental chews.

*If your pet has specific dietary needs or a sensitive stomach, we recommend bringing your own food from home to reduce your pet’s risk of developing GI upset.

**To participate in social play, your pet will need to have a boarding assessment exam.

Helping Pets Socialize in Lombard, IL

Our dog daycare program allows your pup to enjoy plenty of playtime, exercise, and socialization under the supervision of an experienced staff member.

Activities your pet can enjoy at our Lombard facility include ball playing, running, and an obstacle course. We also offer rest periods and can provide meals for pets by request.

Our dog daycare program is a great opportunity for your dogs to socialize with other dogs. Socialization is very important for dogs because it helps to build confidence and teaches dogs how to play well with others. Unsocialized dogs can be fearful and uncertain of their place in the pack. Before they join, we can evaluate their behavior and gradually introduce them into a more social setting.
