We love dogs. Simple, right? Well, okay, it goes a little deeper than that.
We place a premium on professional care, exquisitely appointed facilities and unique services. Five-star amenities, attention to detail and tender-loving care await your precious pup at our hotels.
In business since 2004, Pooch Hotel was purchased by Petco in 2011. We started as a family-owned, premium pet destination in Chicago. We can now bring our top-dog customer service to every corner of the nation.

As recently as a few decades ago, most dogs were "outside dogs", and only the most privileged had dog houses in their yards. In recent years, not only have dogs made their way inside our homes, but most are now welcome in our beds, cars, laps, purses, and wherever else we can share our love together. And now, when you can't be together with your dog, they are welcome to join our extended loving family of Pooch Hotels.
In 2004, we had a vision: to create a dream destination for dogs, where people could feel good leaving their pooches, knowing they would be loved, pampered, and cared for. Pooch Chicago was born.
By 2008, we had two locations in Chicago: Lincoln Park and West Loop. In 2009, we expanded to the Silicon Valley in Sunnyvale, California.
Shortly thereafter, Pooch was elevated from a boutique, family-run organization to a brand worthy of national recognition and scale – it was purchased by Petco to recreate the fantastic Pooch experience in more areas across the country.
So who are we?
We are a family of diverse experiences, backgrounds, and interests all brought together because of our love for animals.
We are animal behaviorists, dog trainers, groomers, and veterinary technicians. We are students and doctoral scholars. We are musicians and mathematicians. We hike, bike, ski, run, and golf. We are young and we are old – but all of us (you included) share something larger: We Love Dogs.
