Daycare gives you peace of mind knowing your dog is well cared for in a healthy, safe and stimulating environment.

We offer 10,500 sf of supervised open play outdoor space and 3,500 sf of padded climate-controlled indoor space also monitored by our experienced dog handlers. Both areas have sections for large and small dogs.

Our playgroup 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.


Daily cost for 1 dog: $24

Daily cost for 2 dogs: $35

Dog training is strongly recommended by many veterinarians. At K9U Chicago we believe training is necessary for the safety of your pet and those around you in a busy city like Chicago. We provide training classes at every level of ability.

Our classes include Puppy Training, Obedience Level 1 and Level 2 along with a fun Agility Class that helps teach focus. We also offer a K9 Nose Work class to provide you with tools to keep your dog occupied at home when you are away during the day. And we offer Stay & Train that provides immersive one-on-one extended stay training at our facility.

Our expert trainers will work with you to help your dog reach their full potential either in a group setting or private lessons. Our spacious, padded and climate-controlled 3,500 sf indoor facility provides plenty of room for dogs at every level of ability.

We also can work with you to train your dog in the comfort of your own home.
