DOGGIE DAYCARE…Seven Days a Week Daycare is a great way for your dog to burn extra energy while you’re at work. Bark Avenue Playcare, Inc is near Chicago’s West Loop. Your dog will be tired and happy after spending the day with us.

At Bark Avenue Playcare, Inc, we design our play groups based on the dogs’ size, temperament and needs. All play groups are supervised, and we treat your dog like one of our own. Does your dog prefer a game of fetch or would they rather hang out alone with someone and get their belly scratched?

Safety is our #1 priority. We take that seriously, which is why we are not a cage free facility. Dogs get tired and grumpy too. They can also become overstimulated, which could lead to a bite or a fight. To protect all of our guests, we provide a structured outlet for fun while maintaining the level of safety needed with dogs. When your dog is resting between playtimes, he/she will be hanging out or napping in a spacious kennel or run with a cot bed and/or blankets for comfort. Check out our FAQs for more specifics about dog daycare at Bark Avenue.
