Oak Park Dog Services

Barking Lot Oak Park, IL

Our dogs are more than just pets: they’re beloved family members. And while we always want to give them the very best in life, sometimes our busy schedules can make things tricky. Until now, that is.

The Barking Lot is your one-stop shop for all of your doggie needs. From grooming and training to daycare and overnight boarding, our friendly pet professionals are here to help! Check out some of our services below:


Dog Walking Near Oak Park, IL

Dogs are just as smart and sociable as young children. And just like us humans, they require plenty of physical and mental stimulation to keep from getting stressed out. That’s why they can’t simply be left at home all day (not to mention the need for bathroom breaks!)

The Barking Lot makes things easy with our dog walking services near Oak Park. Your furry friend will enjoy a 30-minute, one-on-one adventure with a pet-care professional. Why should your busy schedule get in the way of your dog’s health and happiness?


Expert Dog Grooming Services

A clean dog is a happy dog (believe it or not)! But actually keeping your pup well-groomed can be frustrating – especially if he or she just loves playing outside.

Thanks to the Barking Lot, keeping your dog clean and healthy has never been easier. Our specialty groomers will treat your dog to their very own “spa day” – complete with everything from haircuts and brush-outs, to deep shampooing and nail trimming. Let us handle the dirty work!


Training, Tricks, and More!

The difference between a well-mannered dog and a rowdy one is like night and day. Whether you’ve got a small pup at home in need of basic obedience training, or you simply want to teach your old pooch a few new tricks, the Barking Lot is here to help.

We offer a fun variety of training classes for dogs of all sizes and personalities. From simple commands to more advanced stunts and agility drills, our expert instructors can handle it all. Say “goodbye” to messy accidents and “hello” to a calmer, happier, and more confident family member!



Wouldn’t it be great if we could take our pets with us everywhere – like to work, or on vacation? Sadly, it’s not always an option.  But neither is leaving your dog alone at home all day (or all week!)

That’s why the Barking Lot offers doggie daycare and overnight dog boarding near Oak Park, IL. Your pooch will enjoy supervised group playtime with dogs of similar size and temperament, plus plenty of individual attention and long walks. Got specialty food or medication needs? Just let us know! We’re here to make your pet feel right at home.
