What Is Dog Boarding?
Dog boarding allows your dog to have a ton of fun and stay safe while you are out of town. Whether you’re going away on vacation or taking a business trip, our trained staff at DoGone Fun can ensure that your dog stays happy and healthy during their stay. From sleeptime to playtime, our facility offers around-the-clock care and supervision in order to give you peace of mind when you need to be away from your dog.
Why Choose DoGone Fun for Dog Boarding?
When you choose DoGone Fun, your dog can play for over 8 hours a day while you’re gone. We have staff members on site at all times to supervise the dogs, and all of our staff are highly trained and experienced. Our staff has more than 60 hours of hands-on training in dog behavior and play group management, as well as more than 40 hours of education in dog behavior and training. Our kennel workers are trained in a wide range of kennel procedures, such as giving medications for dogs with medical needs.
DoGone Fun also offers 5,000 square feet of play space both indoors and outdoors in a clean, safe environment. You can keep an eye on your dog during playtime thanks to our webcam access. We also provide detailed record keeping to track how much your dog eats, how often your dog eliminates and any services you arrange for, such as giving medication.
What Are the Requirements for Dog Boarding?
DoGone Fun has certain requirements that dogs must meet before they are allowed to board at our facility. The city of Chicago also has requirements for boarding dogs that you should keep in mind, such as needing a valid dog license for city residents and an up-to-date rabies vaccination. DoGone Fun requires dogs to be current on other vaccines and be free of parasitic infections. Other requirements for dog boarding include being spayed or neutered and passing a temperament assessment. All of these requirements help ensure that your dog has a safe environment and experience at our facility.
What Can I Expect When I Board My Dog at DoGone Fun?
When you board your dog at our facility, you should come prepared with any items you want for their stay. For example, you can bring a favorite toy or blanket, your dog’s regular food with instructions and any medications that your dog will need while you are gone. Our staff will make sure that your dog gets settled in at our facility and receive plenty of time to play.
For playtime, which lasts for 8-10 hours a day with breaks for meals and naps, your dog will be supervised the whole time. You can watch your dog play at anytime on our webcam. If you sign your dog up for training or grooming, your dog will be taken off the lot for these services.
At bedtime, your dog will sleep in a cozy and comfortable kennel. We provide cots and blankest but you can bring your dog’s bed from home if you prefer. If you’re boarding more than one dog, they will stay together in the same kennel.
Our check-in times are during regular business hours. Our check-out time is at noon, although you can pick your dog up later for a 1/2 day daycare fee. Since our hours are shorter on Sundays, there is no fee for a late pickup after 12 p.m.
