Doggie Daycare/Boarding

Places to take your dog for day care and/or boarding. 

Bark Avenue Daycamp

Bartlett, IL.

Doggie day camp at Bark Avenue is a fun place for your dog(s) to participate in activities, interact with other dogs and be cared for by highly skilled professionals.  Doggie daycare is for dogs four months (or as soon as they have all their vaccines) and older of any breed or size. The highly trained staff will use their training techniques to maintain order and control to ensure a safe and stress free environment for all the daycare attendees.

Many daycare clients bring their dogs to get them the exercise they otherwise might not get. Most dogs need more than a walk or two a day to fully expend all of their energy and day camp is a way for them to do that while having a great time.  Also, many clients have full time jobs, family, and other demands on their time so it’s a relief to know they can bring their dog(s) and the dogs will be taken good care of during the day.  By the time they pick their dogs up at the end of the day, everyone is ready for a relaxing evening at home.

"At Bark Avenue Daycamp, we make dogs feel right at home!"
