Dog Walking near Lake Forest, IL

Daily exercise is an important part of every pup’s routine. It’s not just about the physical workout either – dogs are quite intelligent, and they need mental stimulation to keep them from getting bored or stressed. Yet we humans lead busy lives, and there are days when it’s not easy to give your dog the full attention that he or she deserves.

At The Barking Lot, we can help you meet those needs with our specialty dog walking services. One of our friendly, expertly trained staff members will take your canine companion on a half-hour adventure that they’re sure to love. Don’t let work or family obligations get in the way of your dog’s health and happiness – give us a call today!

Dog Grooming for Lake Forest Residents

Good hygiene and grooming habits are just as important for dogs as they are for people. Yet every owner knows just how tough it can be to keep your pet clean – especially when they insist on following their actual bath with a mud bath! Here at The Barking Lot, we’ve made things easy for you. Our specialty groomers serve up everything from haircuts and brush-outs to nail trimming and deep shampooing. Your dog will never have looked better!

Lake Forest’s Dog Training Specialists

The difference between a well-mannered dog and a disobedient one… well, it’s like night and day. And there are few things sadder than when poor training and destructive habits cause owners to second-guess whether they can handle their pup. Never fear: The Barking Lot is here to help! We offer a wide variety of fun and humane training classes – from obedience courses to tricks and agility practice for dogs of all sizes and ages. Who says you can’t teach an old dog new tricks?

Doggie Daycare and Overnight Boarding

Our treasured pets are too smart and sociable to be left alone for long periods of time. So the next time you need to head out of town, or just need a bit of a break, turn to The Barking Lot for our doggie daycare and overnight dog boarding services.

Your pup will enjoy plenty of supervised playtime with other dogs of similar age and temperament, as well as individual walks and attention. Our overnight guests are also treated to a stay in spacious, individual kennels. And if your doggie has special needs, or requires a prescription diet/medication, we’re happy to accommodate. We’ll do what it takes to make your beloved family member feel right at home.

Pick up the phone, and call The Barking Lot today – we can’t wait to meet you and your canine companion!
