Dog Daycare –
The perfect place for your pet
Many dog owners lead busy lives. Between work, family and friends, it is inevitable that your dog will be left at home. Our pets are social beings and it is common for dogs that are left alone for long periods of time to develop problems such as separation anxiety, excessive barking and destructive behavior. This is why K9 University (K9U) provides doggie daycare for dogs in Chicago. Dog daycare is a great way to ensure you dogs are safe, stimulated and cared for during the hours you are away from home. K9U has the largest and nicest indoor and outdoor play areas in Chicago complete with playground equipment and controlled environment. Our doggie daycare offers 21,000 square feet of supervised open play outdoor space and 8,000 square feet of padded climate-controlled indoor space also monitored by our experienced dog handlers. Both areas have separate sections for large and small dogs. We understand that every dog is special and that they deserve the best. You can be rest assured that each pup receives experienced personalized care to cater for their needs. Our play group supervisors will get to know your dog’s play style and personality to ensure your dog plays safely and gets the right amount of exercise every visit.
At least 15,000 sf of our outdoors dog play area is fully covered with K9Grass® specifically made for dogs, the largest of its kind and quality in Chicago. Typical daycares outside play areas are likely to be on asphalt, gravel, concrete, or dirt. These surfaces absorb pee and odor, can get very hot in the summer, and can easily create puddles which could lead to bacteria formation. The dogs may come home dirty or matted and their feet become tender or sore from a hard surface. Our K9Grass® is very cushiony and cool to the touch, plus has microbial blades that repel bacteria, an indestructible design so the dogs can’t tear it up, a drainage system, and an air grid that keeps it properly ventilated and free of puddles. Your dog stays comfortable and comes home happy and healthy after playing on it.

Individual Play or Dog Group Play Conditioning
At K9U, we understand that each client dog is unique. No one size fits all here. We offer personalized exercise and play conditioning. We have the expertise and amenities to accommodate each dog’s individual needs regardless of age, size, temperament, or special circumstances. Please talk with us about your pet’s needs and let us customize a program for them. Here are a few the things we topically specialize:
- Treadmill time for a little exercise.
- Ball fetching to sharpen coordination and attention.
- Focused training and socialization for dogs that need help getting along with others. The Dog Group Play Conditioning program is designed to develop mental strength and coach the dog to play with other dogs with respect.
- Extra quiet time and space for older dogs or dogs who just need to be alone.
- In-door Swimming – We are very excited to offer clients an opportunity to add indoor swimming to their K9U Chicago experience through our partnership with Doggy Paddle.
- Individualized day training through our Day Camp academy program for your dog to work on specific socialization or basic obedience skills while he or she enjoys daycare. We find that this is an effective way to implement training for continuous behavior improvement.
