Dog Boarding Chicago –
A Safe and Comfortable Place to Stay

We know it’s tough to leave your dog behind when you leave town, however, you’ll find peace of mind in the activities and plans we make for your dog’s boarding stay.

All boarded dogs take a mid-day break for some rest and relaxation. Meals will be provided according to your dog’s predetermined schedule. Our skilled caregivers are able to administer special diets, medication and injections.

Why Our Clients Love Us

K9U is great. They offer classes as well as day camp /sitting services. The size of the location is pretty impressive, as they have a large indoor and outdoor areas for dogs to play. (They even pick up and drop off your dog.). The staff and trainers are very friendly and extremely effective.James J.
K9 University is great. We’ve been going there for 7 and a half years. We’ve done training, we’ve done agility, we’ve done boarding and we’ve done daycare. The only thing we haven’t done is a drop off and pick up. My dog is kind of a nut and they deal with her well. Debbie W.
My dog has experienced everything at K9U: daycare, classes and boarding. When he is either picked up by the K9U van or dropped off his tail is wagging like crazy. When I pick him up he is happy to see me, goes outside to relieve himself and then pulls to go back in. Jane F.
