Boarding your pet with us over the holiday? You may send a shirt or small blanket that smells like home for extra comfort or send treats with them to be dispensed at your request. We offer cheese or peanut butter filled Kongs, bullysticks, pig ears, and much more for purchase in our lobby to give your pet that little extra holiday treat to enjoy!

A gentle reminder that the holidays are upon us and the season for traveling to see our friends and families and dropping off pets for boarding can sometimes be hectic. We want to get you on to your final destination as quickly as possible so please take a moment to confirm your pet's boarding reservation with us by calling 630.232.8663 and make sure we have all up to date required vaccinations on file. It is the client's responsibility to be sure your pet's vet sends vaccine records over either by fax: 630.232.8667 or email them to Pet's without up to date vaccines are not allowed to stay at DePAW for the safety of all our furry boarding guests. Please plan ahead to avoid any unnecessary delays in your holiday travel plans or not being able to leave your pet with us due to expired vaccines. Thank you!

Grandma is coming over for the holidays and will want to be kissing on your fur baby! Be sure they are smelling wonderful, fluffy and soft, and nails are clipped so they don't pull all that glittery stuff off her holiday sweater! Schedule your bath and nails with our boarding staff by calling 630.232.8663 today.  Want that "extra touch" of a blueberry facial and all the bells and whistles of a professional groom? Book with our Bubbles & Barks Professional Groomer, Shauna.  



Spots are filling up for our first Group Basic Obedience Class beginning in January. Call to reserve your pets spot today.  Know of someone getting a puppy for the holiday and want to gift them with obedience classes? Purchase a gift card as a gift idea!

Not sure if group basic obedience is the best option for your pet? Worried about your pooch jumping up on all those out-of-town guests as they arrive with arms full of green bean casserole and brightly wrapped packages? Is your pup one that you don't trust around guests so you keep them in a kennel when company is over? There is no better time to teach your pup manners so they are well behaved for the holidays and guest entertaining. Sign up for a free Meet & Greet with a DePAW trainer and your dog to discuss issues you may be having and what type of training would be best suit your needs. Call us at 630.232.8663, CLICK HERE to visit our training webpage for more information.



*Note: There will be NO DAYCARE available on Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, New Year's Eve, or New Years Day

Holidays can find us busy preparing for company by cleaning our houses, cooking, shopping, and even more time away from home visiting with friends and family. Why not drop your dog off to DePAW for some fun furry playtime with their friends? They can burn off some excess energy, have more potty breaks, and belly rubs under supervised staff while you're out and about. No appointment ever necessary. Reasonable hourly, 1/2, and full day rates available for your convenience. Check out our FB page (click here) to see videos of playtime inside our daycare. We hope to see you soon!  


We have bought more Ziwi pet food in response to clients trying it and saying their pets love it! Our first batch went off the shelves quick! We have also replenished the shanks and hoofers just in time for your pets stocking stuffer!



* Time is running out on the Ziwi pet food promotion! You have until Dec. 13 only to get $4 off small bags & $8 off large (2.2lb) bags!

Don't forget your pets Stocking Stuffers for Christmas! DePAW has a selection of holiday toys and treats to fill their stocking.  Need a gift basket and gift certificate for that special someone? We have you covered! Give us a few days notice to creat a gift basket by calling 630.232.8663.
