Daycare and Boarding Requirements
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.
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
- For Boarding, if space/circumstances allow, dogs without prior reservations can be admitted for an overnight stay as a walk-in for an extra $12 walk-in Fee for the first night.
- Holiday Overnight boarding is $55 per night during all holidays**. Daycare hours are not applicable to overnight stays.
Walks while your dog is boarding or in daycare: $7/walk or Discount Package 10 Walks = $63 (Buy 9, Get 1 Free)
- We require you to bag up food for your pooch by meal – e.g. breakfast, dinner – and label it, with your dogs name and breed, for an overnight stay. We would love for you to bag it, but if that’s not possible, we have to charge you $7/day for our staff to do it – as it is time consuming.
All Dogs Must Be:
- In Good Health
- Spayed or Neutered (puppies must be spayed/neutered by 6 months)
- At least 3 months old
- Proof of Vaccinations for Rabies, Distemper/DHLPP or Parvo, Bordetella and a fecal exam for parasites within the last 6 months. ***WE REQUIRE FECAL EXAMS EVERY 6 MONTHS
- Have a City of Chicago dog license if 4 months or older (Municipal Code 7-12-140) www.chicityclerk.com/licenses/dogs.html
Please make certain to provide us with current vaccinations when you go to your vet. Our records must show your pooch has current vaccinations and a parasite free fecal exam EVERY 6 MONTHS to ensure the safety of all the pooches that play at Urban Pooch Canine Life Center. We have the right to refuse your pooch if your vaccinations in our systems are expired.
