Dog Boarding and Daycare In Aurora (IL)

Serving since 1991

The Pets’ Home provides clients and their pets with premium pet-care services. Different from standard kennels, The Pets’ Home dog boarding and daycare facility resembles a three-bedroom home where the guest (your pet) sleeps in a cozy bed and an attendant stays overnight on the premises as well. (Crates are available only upon request.)

Our in-home pet-sitting ensures the safety, comfort and happiness of your dog for however long you might be away.

With a joyful love for animals, we give your pet the attention and affection it wants and needs until with excitement it sees you return through the door.

The Experience

Located near Aurora in the heart of Oswego, our original, meticulously designed 5,000 sq. ft. boarding and daycare facility replicates the feeling of home for your dog.

Aiming well beyond the conventional kennel, it provides your pet with a secure and fun haven for as long as they are with us. It doesn’t matter if your beloved pet is a puppy, a senior or a dog with special needs – we can accommodate them all!

Upon entering our facility, guest pets from Aurora are welcomed where they can socialize, play and relax. The layout also includes communal areas for group activities as well as cozy corners for solitude.

Whether you’ll be away for an extended vacation or a simply a workday, your dog will benefit from our daycare’s same creature comforts. Daycare guests can enjoy our dog daycare for 4 to 8 hours. Dog boarding guests receive up to 8 hours of daycare at no additional cost.

Home-Like Ambiance

Unlike traditional kennels that can feel less focused and personal, our dog boarding for Aurora pets provides a domestic aesthetic that incorporates residential furniture, decor and amenities. Pets are not confined to sterile cages but rather free to move about in relaxation with a sense of belonging.

The distinctive, homey bedrooms each have personalized spaces for individual or multi-pet lodging. Sleep areas are determined by how comfortable pets are with other dogs and which ones they are friendly with.

From ample sunlight filtering through large windows to soft, snug bedding for a good night’s sleep, each bedroom’s details contribute to the well-being of our wide range of lovable guests.

Our dog boarding and daycare for Aurora also includes all-year climate control. Soothing background music further contributes to a calming ambiance.

Spacious Play Areas

Dogs are social animals that benefit from regular interplay with other dogs. Left home alone, they can develop a bored and sedentary lifestyle – and as we know, a bored dog all by itself can sometimes create trouble and mess!

At The Pets’ Home we understand how important physical activity is for pets, so we include supervised playtime in expansive indoor and outdoor areas.

Securely fenced for your pet’s safety, the outdoor area gives dogs an opportunity to bask in the fresh air and engage in activities promoting exercise. With nine separate and segregated yards plus our exclusive inground pool – the only such pool for dogs in Oswego – your pet has plenty of room and opportunity for play. Our guests love our commercial-grade foam machine for foam parties too!

The indoor play area includes toys and designated spaces for activities that cater to our different guests’ diverse needs and energy levels.

Trained staff members monitor the indoor and outdoor play areas to ensure the safety and well-being of your pet.

A new experience such as dog daycare can at first be overwhelming for dogs unfamiliar with the atmosphere, so we also make sure to go slow and help them get out of their fluffy shell. If needed, we will start with shorter play sessions and then increase to longer sessions.

Once the dogs are comfortable, they are separated by size and temperament. Special attention is given to making sure they’re with dogs they get along with. We love to see our guests become the best of friends!

Professional Staff

Our commitment to your pet includes how we choose and develop our personnel. Passionate about animals, our team members undergo rigorous training that prepares them for what your particular pet may need. From administering medications to providing individual attention, our staff is devoted to a positive, caring environment for your dog.

Our facility also is equipped with state-of-the-art surveillance systems for greater pet security and monitoring. This lets us keep a watchful eye on our guests for their safety and your peace of mind.

A team member always sleeps overnight on the premises. Should a concern or emergency arise during the night, we are trained and prepared to respond.

Personalized Care Plan

Recognizing that each pet is unique, we offer personalized care plans tailored to your pet. Whether your dog has dietary restrictions, medical needs or desired forms of play, we take the time to understand your pet’s nuances and requirements.

We also encourage you to let us know what’s important for your specific pet, such as its routine and preferences, and any other instructions that will add to a seamless transition and adaptation.


Community Engagement

In addition to offering your dog an exceptional boarding experience, we help to create community among pet owners. We share regular updates, photos, and videos of pets having a blast in their activities so owners can keep connected to their furry friends’ experiences.

We also organize events and social gatherings that welcome Aurora pet owners to visit our facility and participate in activities with their pets. From our Halloween Treat Trail to Photos with Santa to our Valentine’s Day Kissing Booth, we love to celebrate with our four-legged guests and the community of like-minded individuals who share a passion for their pets’ well-being.

Safety & Health

We daily clean each room with pet-safe cleaners – we don’t want your dog getting sick on our watch! A trained staff member also will attend to any medical requirements.

In the rare case of an emergency, we will promptly notify both you and your vet. Each room includes a pet CPR kit for emergencies too.

Exercise further contributes to good canine health, so we make sure your best friend will be ready to relax at your feet after a play-packed day!

We track your pet’s progress and keep you informed through daily reports as well.
