The Deerfield Barking Lot location is currently closed due to a major water break that occurred at our Deerfield facility on April 19th, 2017. We apologize for any inconveniences this may have caused. Please check this page for updates on the re-opening of the Deerfield, IL Barking Lot facility.

After further review with structural engineers and the Village, the extent of the damage from the water main break was even worse than predicted. Unfortunately, most of the facility has to be renovated. We need to replace 80 kennels, which will take 10-12 weeks to manufacture. Although it was a very difficult decision to make, we feel it’s best to wait until all renovations are complete to reopen boarding and daycare, which is tracking for the beginning of August. We will have an exact date once we firm up the production schedule with the kennel company.
The upside to all if this is that we will have a brand new facility with high end modern kennels, commercial grade epoxy floors throughout the entire facility, new protective wall panels, and a brand new coat of paint. We are most excited about our brand new outdoor area which will have anti-microbial artificial grass (no more muddy paws). The other good news is that we will be able to take dogs in for grooming beginning June 12th.
We are so sorry for any inconvenience this has caused our customers, and we appreciate your loyalty to our business. Once more information is available, we will be in touch! Staff will be here every day from 10am-2pm to answer phone calls, emails, and phone messages so that you can continue to make your reservations. We can’t wait to show you our amazing new facility come August!


We have been gathering information to get a better understanding of the damage to our facility. It is safe to say that we will be closed for the next month. We can’t apologize enough for any inconvenience this has caused many of you.
When we reopen, we will have the two play areas and a couple kennel areas repaired. Unfortunately, the kennels will take some time to be built and installed. This means that the dogs will be in 80-100 lb crates when they are not playing. We most likely will only be able to accommodate around 50 dogs. Reservations will be required for all services including daycare. Grooming will open at that time as well.
The entire facility will take around three months to be fully operational with all of our brand new kennels. The silver lining is that when this is all said and done, we should have a brand new, fully updated facility.
Please make sure to like us on Facebook , check the website regularly as we plan on sending pictures and updates along the way.
Hope to see you all soon!
