dog boarding in Chicago: the Second Hotel

The Second City also boasts the second Pooch Hotel location: West Loop. But here, your dog is always our first priority. That’s what makes us one of the best dog boarding facilities in Chicago. That, and our cool digs.

All of our suites are spacious and full of natural light so your pet can relax and feel comfortable. Many of the suites at our Chicago dog boarding hotel also have stylish porcelain tile, webcams, and flat-screen TVs. All-day play is on the agenda for well-mannered, socialized dogs, and individual play is available for those that prefer more one-on-one time.

In addition to boarding, we also offer an array of other first-rate services, like daycare, grooming, and dog training. Book an appointment during your dog’s stay!

grooming and pampering: it all starts here

It’s no wonder Pooch Hotel grooming salons and dog training schools got their start in Chicago. After all, Chicagoans were the first to coin the word “pooch.” And since we’ve been around for so long, we’ve got the experience and expertise necessary to take care of all your pet’s individual needs.

Does your dog need a new ’do? How about a bath or facial? Maybe they just need a little run on our treadmill. Perhaps your pet just needs a little extra love? Time for a rubdown!

Whatever your dog’s unique needs, we aim to serve. Book an appointment during boarding or this weekend at dog daycare for your Chicago dog!

the best dogs come from great dog training

  • train1
  • train2
  • train-right

You know your dog is the best on the block, but sometimes they need a little help with their manners. We understand. That’s one of the reasons we started our Positive Dog Training program. Through the use of science-based training principals, we can help your puppy learn the basics or provide refresher lessons for your adult dog. We offer a variety of classes from group sessions to one-on-one classes. You can even leave your dog with us as part of our ‘Stay & Train’ program, where we work with your dog while they are boarding or hanging out with us in daycare. When your course is complete, we then work with you to show you how to keep the lessons fresh when you and your dog head home.

We can help you if you have a puppy or even an adult dog that needs a little refresher course. We have programs designed to work for dogs no matter what life stage they are in. Just give us a call and we’ll help match you to the perfect dog training program for you and your best friend.

Dog Training Options Include:

  • Group Classes
  • Private Lessons
  • Stay & Train
  • Seminars
