Urban Pooch believes all dogs have the right to a safe, healthy, and enjoyable environment. When your pooch comes to join us, we require the following to ensure the safety and health of your best friend(s): Before your dog can stay with us for daycare and/or boarding, s/he must be evaluated and socialized at least 24 hours prior. All dogs must attend daycare at least 2 times before s/he is eligible for an overnight stay. This allows your pooch to become more comfortable with Urban Pooch before staying for a longer period of time.
Socializations and evaluations take place on Sunday, Monday and Tuesday, by appointment only. PLEASE NOTE: Due to the upcoming Holidays – we are closing Socializations for new dogs on November 9th (11/9/18). Dogs are already booked up several days in advance. During the Holidays, we will also be boarding pooches at our 5400 N Damen Avenue facility.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Urban Pooch Canine Life Center is excited that we’ve had so much interest from new Daycare customers – and are currently booked thru August 6th, 2018 with socialization test. We are taking a brief breather and will be creating a new schedule shortly for August 7th forward. We can take your information and connect back with a date for your pooch’s Socialization Test.
NOTE: If you’re interested in a specific BOARDING date – please mention it to our staff – so they can alert our team and we will advise what we can do to ensure your pooch can board.
You can call us at (773) 942-6445. Please plan for 2 full hours for socialization based on the above times. There is a $25 fee for socialization – and you receive daycare hours for future visits
