Welcome to September happenings at DePAW -


We would like to announce that renovations have begun to get underway at DePAW and we are going to do our very best to ensure a smooth process with as little upset to daily business for our wonderful furry clients.  There may be some days we have to limit services while contractors work on the building and this is to ensure their safety, our furry guest's safety, as well as those of our staff. You may have also noticed we have increased our staff in preparation of our expansion and we are so appreciative of all the warm welcomes they are receiving from clients! Thank you for your patience and cooperation while we expand and prepare to bring you even better services at DePAW! We will do our best to give as much notice to clients regarding any closings or changes in service. Stay tuned to signs posted in the lobby, on FB, Instagram, Twitter, and these Newsletters.

Thank you!


DePAW will be sending a lot of our staff for their continuing education conferences to better prepare them to provide the best possible care for your pet! We believe that life never stops teaching, so why would we ever stop learning? Not only do all of our employees have pet care backgrounds in order to work at our facility, we also require so many hours yearly of continuing education. We believe this knowledge has helped us better serve our clients and their furry family members making us a community favorite for pet kennel year after year! Here are a couple of the conferences our employees will be attending this month and next month.  Wish them well on their trips!

IBPSA - International Boarding & Pet Services Association 

IACP - International Assocation of Canine Professionals


Did you know you can send an article of your clothing that has your scent with your pet when you drop them off to board with us? Having a familiar scent can sometimes help ease some of the anxiety of being away from home.

A gentle reminder that DePAW does NOT allow rawhides within our facility due to the fact they are a choking hazard.  Also, if sending a blanket or a bed, please be sure it is machine washable fabric and size.  Thank you!

DePAW would like to take the time again to gently remind our wonderful clients to please be sure you have submitted your pets up-to-date vaccinations prior to any boarding reservation. We always try to include what vaccines are coming due at the time you make your reservation and also within confirmation emails, however, it is the client's responsibility to be sure their veterinary office submits the vaccinations to DePAW and to follow up and confirm we have received them prior to your arrival.  We take the health of our furry clients very seriously and cannot make exceptions to the required vaccines and negative fecals in order to have your pet inside the facility.  We want you to be at your final destination as quickly as possible! :) To verify what vaccines your pet needs to stay with us, please visit our policies/forms page by clicking
You may also call us to see what we show is past due or about to be due to prevent any delays with drop off. Thank you for your cooperation and understanding and we hope to have you stay with us soon!

Columbus Day (Monday, October 8) holiday weekend is fast approaching. Please be sure to reserve your space today by calling 630.232.8663. 


We continually hear from clients who have begun to bring their dog to daycare how much better behaved their pet is at home and on walks.  Spending time with their own kind can help diminish the anxiety your dog may feel while out on a walk and seeing another dog to investigate.  Daycare not only has an exercise advantage, but a very social fulfillment dogs can only receive from being with other dogs.  Come try it out, no appointment every necessary. Daycare hours are Mon-Fri 6am - 7pm and Sat 8am-5pm. 



Our Bubbles & Barks professional groomer, Shauna, has recently returned from the All American Grooming Show last month where she attended her continuing education. There is a reason she is a community favorite, book an appointment and let her show you why! By appointment only 630.232.8663

Just need a bath for your pup at the end of a daycare or boarding stay to get all the slobber off from playing with their friends? Let us know when you drop off and we will be sure they are smelling nice and clean for you upon pick up! Nail trims & dremel available upon request.


"Creating accountability in our dog's begins with creating accountability in ourselves; to ourselves." - 

DePAW Training has won awards year after year but the true determination of success depends on the owner's ability, desire, and determination to continue the lessons learned within our facility to the outside world and at home.  Let us show you how we can help you and your dog have a more harmonious and respectful relationship. Book a free & greet session with one of our trainers today to learn more.

The last Group Basic Obedience 9wk session of the year begins this coming Thursday, September 13th - November 8th 7:15-8:30pm.  There are a few remaining spots, don't hesitate to reserve yours!
