Are you aware that bringing your dog into play with other dogs may help some behavior issues at home? Whether they are destructive out of boredom at home, acting out from not getting enough exercise and playtime with their friends, or just needing some time in the company of other dogs and humans, come try out Daycare at DePAW.  No appointment necessary, very reasonable rates, and an expertly trained staff watching over and interacting with your fur baby at all times.  

* Current vaccinations required before dropping off your pet. See our website for our policies and forms.



Regular grooming keeps your pets coat & skin healthy and regular nail trims can reinforce healthy foot structure and posture. When done regularly, most will enjoy the relaxation it brings. Why not add it to the end of your boarding or daycare visit with us so you can bring 'em home all clean and wonderful smelling!  

Professional grooming also available by appointment only with our award winning "Bubbles & Barks" by appointment only by calling 630.232.8663

Bulldog Jog 3K - 4.26.18 at 6:00 pm


Location: West Main Park Shelter


Grab your best furry, four-legged friend and head to West Main Community Park to participate in a fun and scenic 3K walk or jog. Learn more about the Bulldogs Unleashed public art project and browse a variety of pet vendors. The first 50 dogs will receive a special gift! Presented in cooperation with Bulldogs Unleashed.




First Pack Walk will be Sunday May 6th 10:00am.

Anyone is welcome to attend the Pack Walks. We would love to see not only our DePAW clients, but your family, friends, coworkers, and even neighbors! It’s completely FREE!

Pack Walks are a leashed community walk around a local forest preserve or park. They are a way of building our community amongst fellow dog owners interested in meeting new friends, getting exercise for yourself and your dog, and learning better “walk behavior” as well as new leash skills with your dog.  These walks are not meant for dog socializing, rather teaching good public behavior.

Pack Walks will be held on Sundays and meet @  10:00am SHARPwith step-off @10:10am.  Please bring water for yourself and your dog and flea and tick prevention is strongly recommended since trails can be wooded with tall grass.

Please keep in mind many of these locations are also available to bikers, hikers, horseback riders, disc golf, etc.  All will be great distraction training for your dog.

Walk lengths will vary, with shorter walks in the hot Summer months.  Breaks are taken as needed for dogs to rest in the shade and drink water.

Meeting/Parking locations are marked on the maps by a purple paw print.

We have an email list for Pack Walk Updates or cancellations due to weather.  A link for the location and directions will be sent the day prior to the walk. You may also email for questions or if you have trouble finding a location.  To join the list, please email training@DePAW.com

Pack Walk Rules:

* Clean up after your dog. Poop bags are mandatory.
* Pack walks are for dogs over 4mo. with current vaccinations.
* Leashes must be 6’ or shorter. NO retractable leashes!
* Staying to the right as we encounter others on the trail.
* Keeping your dog a respectful distance (within 2ft of you) and away from other dogs.  Your dogs’ nose should not run into the tail of the dog in front of you.  Make sure to check with other dog owners before letting your dog greet each other. Please do not be offended by a decline.  All dogs are here to work on different issues.
* One dog per person.
* DePAW is not responsible for the health and safety of your dog while attending this community pack walk.
