dog boarding: a hospitability retreat for your dog
Dog boarding at Pooch Hotel in Chicago is all about making your pet’s stay as comfortable and relaxing as possible. As the very first Pooch Hotel, we’re experts when it comes to dog care and hospitality. We understand that going away can be hard on both you and your dog. That’s why we offer a full range of services, from daycare to impeccable grooming to dog training.
Being away from home can give dogs the blues. That’s why our facility for dog boarding in Chicago (Lincoln Park) has spacious, custom-built suites for your pet. There’s also comfortable bedding, lots of natural light, and suites that even have posh porcelain tile. Every effort has been made to create a cozy environment for your pet while you’re away. For dogs that prefer more one-on-one attention, we have individual play options as well.
Just like a Chicago-style hotdog comes with more toppings than you can shake a bun at, Pooch Hotel has a lot of perks. All-day play is as fun as Dog Day at U.S. Cellular Field and is available for well-mannered and socialized dogs.

a little dog training goes a long way
We know you want your dog to feel its best and part of that is teaching them how to behave. Sometimes that can be a challenge between work, family, and other responsibilities. That’s where our Positive Dog Training program comes into play. We can bridge the gap between you and your dog to make sure you’re communicating in a language you both can understand in a quick and efficient way. Working with our certified and caring trainers, we create a fun learning environment designed to help you both succeed.
We work with puppies and even adult dogs. Give us a call today to learn about our options including one-on-one sessions, group classes, and our ever popular ‘Stay & Train’ program, where we work on training basics while your dog is boarding or staying for daycare. Through our three tier ‘Stay & Train’ program, your dog will learn behaviors like sit, fetch, how to not jump up, and be a Canine Good Citizen. Then, at the end of the course, we’ll work with you to show how to keep up with the training at home. Call us today and we’ll help you pick out a program that will work with you and your dog.
Dog Training Options Include:
- Group Classes
- Private Lessons
- Stay & Train
Pooch Hotel is one of just a handful of pet hotels nationwide that offers you 24-hour access to your pet.
Give your pup plenty of play and exercise when you drop them off for daycare or let them freshen up with a Pawdicure and Brush-out in our spa.
