Welcome to April Happenings at DePAW!

DePAW was voted the Top Pick for 2019 Best Pet Boarding!

"On behalf of everyone at the Daily Herald Media Group, Congratulations to DePAW University being named a Readers’ Choice TOP PICK for Best Pet Boarding by our suburban readers. This year we saw a record number of readers participating, with over 40,000 votes tallied. So winning - it’s quite the big deal!" - Daily Herald Media Group



DePAW Office will be CLOSED for all services on EASTER on Sunday, April 21st allowing as much of our staff to spend with their families in between caring for our boarding clients.  
We would love to hear feedback from you, our wonderful clients, on what you would like to see in our newsletters! Send us an email to marketing@depawK9.com


Thank you to all who voted for DePAW for the Top Pick for 2019 Best Pet Boarding in the Daily Herald's Readers Choice Awards! We are so honored and thankful for receiving the award and will continue to work at keeping that status! 

We have a few spots remaining for the Easter holiday, so don't wait to reserve your pet's space. Call us at 630-232-8663.  Memorial Day is also right around the corner so get those vacation plans ready and let us pamper your fur baby like our own while you're away!

Did you know DePAW is different from most boarding facilities in the area in the way we don't make you pick up by noon the next day to avoid extra boarding charges? Nope! We charge per night stay and have drop off's as early as 6 am and pick up's as late as 7 pm during the week, Saturdays 8am-5pm, and Sunday is for boarding pick up and drop off's only between 11am-1pm and again from 7-9pm. 

We are also different in the way we don't require daycare during your pet's stay like some kennels. You can customize your pet's boarding experience according to your budget and their needs! For example, you can choose no daycare, 1/2 day of daycare, a full day of daycare, or even alternate daycare days during your pet's boarding stay with us. We make it easy!



With the warmer temperatures approaching that means it's time to start thinking about fleas & ticks.  And with doggie daycare attendance increasing and furry friends playing with each other, DePAW wants to remind everyone we require dogs to be on flea & tick prevention to attend DePAW for the health and safety of all the pets attending.  Any dog found to have fleas or ticks will be given a flea bath at the owner's expense. Thank you for your cooperation!  For more information or as a reminder of our policies, please visit: 


The Spring is here and that means April showers and mud! Never fear, DePAW has our staff ready to make your pooch boootiful! We don't mind the taste of soap and have all the tools necessary to wash and blow dry your fur baby. No appointment necessary for a basic kennel bath and nail trim. Pricing can be found on our website:


Want a professional groom? Call us at 630-232-8663 to schedule.


"Don't blame me if you don't train me!" -sincerely, your dog

DePAW continues year after year winning community awards for our training programs for a reason.  We make a commitment to tell pet parents up front that they will have homework to do at home if they want the training to be successful.  We may have expert Trainers, but teaching dogs is similar to teaching children in the way it's only truly successful when there is consistency at home with the techniques learned at DePAW. We teach pet parents how to be successful with continued training. It is a team effort and we are committed to teaching both the dog and the parents! Let us help you have a more harmonius life at home with your pet.  We have mutiple programs to fit your budget and time.  Give us a call for a FREE meet & greet session. 630-232-8663 . You may also visit our training page on our website for more information: 



A big shout out to Juliana and "Tucker" for continuing their training techiniques learned at DePAW and sending us pictures! Well done to you both and we are so happy to see Tucker doing so well!
