Dogs Yorkville (IL): Original Boarding & Daycare

Yorkville’s current population is more than 21,000, and there’s a good chance that, like the rest of Illinois, close to half of its households have a dog.

If you’re one of them, you know there is no other pet like your own best friend. During times when you can’t be with your dog, you want to know it is safe and comfortable with trained people who understand it.

An innovative alternative to conventional kennels, The Pets’ Home is a 5,000 sq. ft. dog boarding and daycare facility created by professionals with a true love for dogs (we call them guests). Our facility replicates the comfort and warmth of a three-bedroom home including thoughtfully designed areas for rest, play and sleep.

Upon visiting our facility, you’ll notice how it incorporates residential furniture, decor and amenities for a home-like atmosphere that helps put pets at ease. Your dog also is not confined to a cage but rather free to roam with a sense of inclusion in its home away from home.

Plus, it doesn’t matter if your Yorkville dog is a puppy, a senior or a pet with distinctive needs – we welcome and care for them all!

The Experience for Yorkville (IL) Dogs

We all wish to give our pets the constant care and attention they deserve, but that isn’t always possible when life gets in the way. That’s where The Pet’s Home comes in.

When your dog needs daycare, we provide it with fun, comfort and joy, as well as the regular interaction with other dogs that will benefit them.

We further recognize that a new experience such as dog daycare can seem overwhelming at first, so we take care to go slow in helping dogs break out of their fluffy shell. If needed, we’ll start with shorter play sessions and increase to longer ones as your dog becomes acclimated.

As its comfort in daycare grows, each dog is separated by size and temperament. We also make sure that dogs are grouped with those they get along with. Seeing our guests become friends is a great part of our job!

Yorkville guests that are with us by day can enjoy from 4 to 8 hours of loving daycare. Guests that are boarding with us receive up to 8 hours of daycare as part of their stay.

Adding to canine comfort even more, our boarding and daycare for Yorkville dogs includes climate control and soothing background music as well.

Play Areas

We really mean it when we say your dog has plenty of ways to play when it’s our guest!

The large, fenced outdoor area lets your dog dash through the fresh air as it has a blast choosing its playmates and exercise. The outdoor area includes nine separate, segregated yards monitored for your dog’s safety, comfort and fun.

Our crowing jewel is undoubtedly our inviting in-ground pool – the only one of its kind in Oswego! More than just a place for dogs to cool off, the pool is a place of endless joy and entertainment. Imagine your pet frolicking in the water, its tail wagging with sheer delight. Our staff oversees all pool activities to ensure a safe experience for every pet.

The indoor area at The Pets’ Home offers your dog lots of toys plus designated spaces for activities that suit different levels of need and energy. Many of our Yorkville guests also get excited for our foam parties with our commercial-grade foam machine!

Personalized Plans for Your Dog

Understanding that each pet is unique, we offer care plans tailored to your dog’s specific requirements. Whether your best friend has dietary restrictions, medical needs or certain play preferences, our team takes the time to note these nuances for a stay that adapts to your dog (rather than making it adapt to us).

You are welcome (and encouraged!) to let us know everything about your pet’s routine, likes and dislikes. The open communication between us also includes keeping you connected with your pet when you’re away. We will update you about your dog’s progress through daily reports.

Safety and Health

Each guest room is cleaned daily with pet-safe cleaners – we don’t want your best friend getting sick on our watch! A trained staff member also will attend to any medical needs. In the rare case of emergencies, we’ll notify you and your vet promptly. The bedrooms all include a pet CPR kit should it be needed as well.

The frequent exercise we offer likewise helps to support your dog’s better health. When you come to pick up your pet, don’t be surprised if your best friend is joyfully worn out and ready to relax at your feet!

Specialized Staff

Whether it’s attention or medication your dog might need, our team is trained to identify and respond. We also reinforce your pet’s security and well-being with facility-wide surveillance technology that lets us keep a good eye on our guests.

Your dog won’t be left to fend for itself, including at night. A staff member always sleeps overnight at our dog boarding facility, and should a concern or rare emergency arise, we will know just what to do.

Community Among Yorkville (IL) Dog Owners

The Pets’ Home experience includes Yorkville pet owners too. We encourage community by sharing updates, photos and videos of dogs in activities with their owners. As you remain connected with your pet, you become more aware of other owners and their dogs as well!

We also organize special events and gatherings that inspire owners to participate with their dogs at The Pets’ Home. Our Halloween Treat Trail, Photos with Santa and Valentine’s Day Kissing Booth are just a few examples of celebrations that bring like-minded dog owners together to share a passion for their pets’ well-being.

Sign Up Your Dog!

If you’ll be away for a time and wish for your dog to be safe and comfortable in attentive boarding and daycare, simply complete a profile for you and your dog(s). We’ll send you a link upon acceptance. (Please note your dog must be current with the listed vaccines. Also please bring any medication your dog will need during daycare hours.)

We will always be excited to welcome and care for your dog when you’re gone, and we’ll be just as glad to see your best friend run to you when you return. For even more details about our dog boarding and daycare for Yorkville dogs, give us a call at (815) 254-1166!
