Dogs Day Inn located near Lincoln Park, Chicago, is a fun, cage-free alternative to traditional kennels. We pride ourselves on our casual and fun run environment that is a bit different from most. We provide social group cageless dog daycare and offer a completely open play environment to our guests. For us, a dog's needs always come first, that means feeling included as part of the pack and given love and attention at all times. Our guests are supervised by dog lovers and provided access to an outside area. We encourage dogs to interact in healthy play as much as they desire, as well as other staff run activities. It is our sincere hope that you and your dog's experience with our staff and other guests at our facility are always positive. We strive to make sure your dog has a wonderful experience with our staff and the other good natured dogs that they will meet.
Dogs Day Inn has two play areas to allow dogs with the same play style to be able to interact with each other and allow us to separate our smaller dog or less active dogs from our larger or more playful ones. Our outdoor space allows our guests to get some fresh air and sunshine daily, and on weather permitting days, they have the opportunity to sunbath, lounge or play on the playground equipment or in our kiddie pools. For those not so pleasant days our guest still have the opportunity to head outside and still have some shelter with our large tent.
Dogs Day Inn is "Where pups come to play and stay!"
