One-on-One Dog Walking

Regular exercise is just as important for dogs as it is for people. Most modern breeds were bred for a specific purpose, like hunting, herding, or ratting. As a result, our pets have a strong drive to stay active – it’s in their blood! And when they aren’t feeling stimulated enough, it can lead to stress and even destructive behavior.

Sometimes we lead such busy lives that it’s hard to give our beloved pups all of the daily activity that they deserve. That’s where the Barking Lot comes in. Our expertly trained dog walkers will take your furry friend on a nice, long one-on-one adventure that they’re sure to love.

Gurnee’s Top Dog Groomers

What’s the longest you’ve gone without a shower or haircut? It might sound like a strange question, but the point is that nobody likes feeling grimy, shaggy, and generally unkempt. Well, dogs are the same way!

Believe it or not, a clean and well-groomed pup is a happy (and healthy) pup, even if yours seems to just love rolling in mud. Our on-site specialty dog groomers are here to help with everything from haircuts and brush-outs to deep shampooing and nail trimming. Leave the dirty work to us – maybe you can even treat yourself to a spa day too!

Obedience Training, Tricks, and More!

The difference between a well-trained companion and a furry shoe-destroyer is like night and day. And if your pup is stressing you out left and right, it probably just means he or she needs a little extra training. Never fear – we can help!

Here at the Barking Lot, we’ve got a wide variety of fun training classes for dogs of any age or size. Whether your pooch needs basic obedience courses, or you want to teach them a few new tricks, there’s something here for everyone. We even offer agility drills to improve confidence and off-leash reliability.

Doggie Daycare and Overnight Boarding

In a lot of ways, dogs are like children – they’re too smart and sociable to be left alone for long stretches of time. So if your work schedule keeps you away from home all day, if you’re heading out of town on vacation – or if you just need a little break – be sure to check out our doggie daycare and overnight boarding services.

At the Barking Lot, all of our furry guests enjoy individual walks and attention, plus plenty of supervised playtimes with dogs of similar age and temperament. Those staying overnight are treated to spacious, individual kennels with plenty of room to stretch out. We can even administer any special diet or medication that your pet requires (but please do bring those with you!). Our goal is to make every dog feel right at home.

The Barking Lot is proud to be Gurnee’s doggie destination, and we can’t wait to meet you and your canine companion! Call us today at either of our two convenient locations:
