Becky Rutka and Dani Guigli, our dog walking managers, have a team of trustworthy and dedicated employees ready to take your dog for a relaxing and refreshing 30 minute walk. Having someone you can trust and depend on to care for your canine companion is essential to what we do here at the Barking Lot—background checks are always completed on each of our employees.
While taking care of your beloved pet, our boarding services are multifaceted and expansive. Our Deerfield and Chicago locations offer a doggie vacation like no other! The Barking Lot is home to first-class accommodations for your pet when you are away.
We have state-of-the art boarding facilities with individual and spacious kennels—think of us as a spa and hotel for your dog. Our staff is well trained and will give you peace of mind that your dog’s boarding experience is an exceptional one.
For dogs who have a prim and proper diet, we can ensure that continues while you are away. Dogs, like people, have special needs and we strive to meet those needs. From heating your dog’s food in the microwave to administering medication—we do it all!
Not every dog has the manners of royalty, but that doesn’t mean they can’t be trained. At the Barking Lot, we believe training must be human, effective, fair, and fun. We have two Directors of Training: Wendy DeCarlo and Dennis Damon of the Dog Obedience Group. Our directors specialize in behavior and training while instructing and supervising our entire training program.
Our training services range from behavior consultations to private sessions, each tailored to the needs of your dog. Obedience, manners, agility, games, and tricks are all offered in group sessions.
An essential part of a healthy dog’s lifestyle is hygiene and grooming. Our grooming services offer haircuts, baths, brush outs, and nail trims. A typical grooming session ranges from three to four hours, ensuring every bit of your dog is sparkling clean.
Like family and friends, it is hard to leave the ones we love alone, and leaving a dog home alone while having careers can be heart wrenching. You can bring your little pal to the Barking Lot dog daycare so they’ll be guaranteed to have fun. We have two state-of-the-art facilities with heating and air-conditioning in expansive spaces where your dog can relax and enjoy the day. A dog at the Barking Lot can expect four to five hours of structured, supervised playtime with playmates of equal size and temperament in a controlled social environment.
