The West Loop is one of the most dog friendly neighborhoods with dog parks, doggie daycare facilities, pet friendly apartment buildings, pet stores, and pet friendly restaurants galore! Here are some of the most popular doggie daycare facilities in the West Loop!
Tucker Pups Pet Resort
Tucker Pups offers ample outdoor play space, spacious nap time suites, playground equipment, and a swimming pool! If your dog is feeling shy or nervous about their first time away from home, they also offer solo play for an additional cost. Tucker Pups is a neighborhood favorite for doggie daycare, so their daycare is currently on a waitlist. However, you can still book with Tucker Pups for grooming and boarding!
Pet Care Plus
If you want to keep an eye on your furry friend while they’re at doggie daycare, check out Pet Care Plus! They offer live feed video so you can see what your pups are up to! Pet Care Plus is also known for having a stellar pool and convenient pickup and drop-off services.
Happy Trails and Tails
For lower maintenance dogs who just want to run around, Happy Trails and Tails could be the place! They offer a huge outdoor play space and unscheduled play time for the duration of doggie daycare, so if your pup has lots of energy, they’ll have a chance to burn it all off before they come home. There are also open crates and corners in the play space for your dog to retreat to when they want a little break. Happy Trails and Tails is located just off of Fulton Market.
From multiple play spaces, playground equipment, and swimming pools, to webcams and optional nap and snack time breaks, Pooch Hotel really seems to have it all. If you’re boarding your dog, they offer multiple upgrades, with the top tier boarding suite being a human sized bed complete with a framed picture of the owners on a nightstand. Pooch Hotel is also one of the only facilities to offer 24/7 pickup, so you can access your dog anytime!
Pooch Hotel is located on Monroe, just a few blocks east of Skinner dog park.
