Dog Boarding TestimonialsGet Started
This was our first boarding experience anywhere with our 7 month old puppy. We really appreciated the thoroughness of your pre-boarding questionnaire and the responsiveness of your staff throughout his time with you. The pictures were also a really welcome touch -- we'd always like more, but we obviously understand there are limits to what is possible :) Thanks so much!

We really enjoyed the pictures of Bowser while we were away. It was nice to see him having fun and didn't have to worry about him being in his kennel quarters all day. Staff is also very friendly!

We boarded Penny for the first time this past weekend and, as nervous pup parents, we called to check in at least 3 times. Every time the staff was very friendly and gave us a very informative update that Penny was doing just fine. It's so great to get updates like what other dogs she's making friends with and that she ate all of her dinner. We appreciate the detail! We also got a photo of her on day 2 which was awesome. We always love the pics of her smiling face. We love the staff at Tucker's and Penny has been asleep since we got some so you lived up to your name!

Easy check in/out. Appreciate the updates and photos gives me a peace of mind when I leave!

We have used Tucker Pup's services for boarding for a few years now. The staff is very kind and always know Eleanor by name! Anyone on the staff can give an update on how the visit went. Eleanor is an older dog and the staff always look out for her needs and know when she needs a 'break' from the larger group. I feel very confident with the love and care Eleanor receives.

Huck came home happy and tired. That's all we can ask for!
- Kate Laures
Corey always returns from Tucker Pup's after a boarding session with an energetic, happy-pup attitude! Definitely more playful than when he left home. He loves staying with you all.

Tucker Pup's staff took excellent care of Oscar for almost a month in boarding. They sent me Oscar's photos periodically. Highly recommend.

I have been thoroughly vetting boarding services as I am planning a long vacation in November. I had already put down a deposit to board my dog at Tucker Pup's over Thanksgiving, but had not stayed there when something came up last weekend, and I needed to board my dog at the last minute. Tucker's staff was able to get my dog a free day of daycare the day before her boarding to make sure she was a good fit and I appreciated that part of the process. They sent me pics of my dog while I was gone and I called every day I was away. (yes, I am that person) I should say that I have a 12 year old chihuahua who is very shy, but she did great on the play floor even though she did mostly keep to herself. The staff realized she was a bit skittish during her first visit and tried to give her extra attention when they could. She's so adorable it's hard not to dote on her. I love that there is an outdoor play area and the dogs aren't just circling around on a concrete floor.
When I called the first night and they said she didn't eat her dinner, I was able to troubleshoot the problem over the phone. Tucker Pup's makes dogs who are in daycare/boarding wear a break-away collar w name tag, which they have available for purchase and is very helpful. My dog never wears a collar so when she went to eat from her bowl the collar tag clanking the bowl startled her. (I noticed it the night before I boarded her) I told the staff over the phone and they made a note to feed her without it on. Problem solved!! When I brought her home she was tired, but seemed happy and was full of energy after a good night's rest. I will be back again and I am telling all of my friends!

I was very happy with the boarding experience for our two dogs. Being service dogs they usually travel with us. However for this private event we were requested that they not attend. Knowing they were in a safe, clean and playful environment, made it easier for me to enjoy the event I needed to attend.
- Melanie O'Rourke
Thank you so much for doing such an amazing job looking after Jax and Sam for us! We really appreciate the time and attention our dogs get when they stay with you!!
- Ray Karpeles
Barley is always excited to go play at Tucker Pup's. And is happily tired when I pick him up!
- Martha Neese
We appreciated the photos posted during Delta's boarding stay. She was pretty tired when we picked her up, which we took as a good sign because she had so much play time.
- Melissa Conroy
Stanley had a great time. He likes hanging out with people more than other dogs and Tucker Pup's is always accommodating.
- Bernie Padilla
The staff loved Kash and treated him as his own, which made me feel better about leaving him for the weekend. Can't recommend Tucker Pup's enough!
He loves going to daycare and I love how tired he is when he gets home!
- Sara Hainsfurther
Great experience. Friendly customer service and great detail around my dog's stay. Thanks.
- Nick Voss
The service is outstanding! The pictures are a great feature. Our puppy loves this place!
Dagny looked awesome afterwards!
- Steve Rousopoulos and Bevin Callan
Front desk staff and handlers are friendly and accommodating. I love that I can call anytime to see how my dog is doing and they give me a thorough update. I also get a timely call back when I leave a voicemail. Thanks!
- Michaela Wilkeson
I specifically appreciate that I feel like the staff really takes the time to get to know and care specifically about my dog (mini goldendoodle named Charlie). It's comforting when traveling to be able to call and speak to someone who was spending time with him - the feedback from the staff is always specific to Charlie's day and not generic for the group.
- Melissa Marra
Curry seemed to have a great time and he was well fed. Whenever we drop off Curry he runs to the Tucker Pup's employees without hesitation and is always excited to play. The employees know us and they know Curry. Thank you for taking such good care of our dog!
- Neil and Brianna Kalsi
We did a trial daycare and grooming today. I was incredibly impressed with the staff, especially their knowledge and care of dogs. They knew my dog specifically and were able to speak about her habits and I could tell they had paid close attention and care to her. I'm thrilled with my experience and feel very comfortable leaving her in your care when we travel soon.
- Anna Poss
Our pup loves going to daycare and boarding at Tucker's Pup's! She comes home exhausted every time from playing so hard.
- Amanda Faber
Lacey is a nervous dog and she seems to have done great at your facility! Thank you for keeping us updated and keeping her happy. We will be back this summer!
- Chris Kruppe
We were nervous about our puppy's first stay at boarding, but Tucker Pup's made us feel very comfortable with the experience. I love the pictures they post online of the dogs playing, and they even sent us a personalized email update on our puppy's first night with a picture of her snuggled up in her bed. We will absolutely bring our dog back to Tucker Pup's when we go on future trips!
- Kelsey Johnson
We had a great experience! It's never hard leaving the pup for a week, but felt he was in very good hands. Loved getting photo updates seeing him happy as could be! We have been on the hunt for a good boarding place in the city and I believe we've found it! Excited to bring him back for other trips!
- Megan Hejmej
Mandy loves Tucker Pup's! Everyone is so good to her always.
- Mark McKenna
Loved getting the photos. Staff was super friendly and helpful. They really seemed to enjoy Egg Roll (our puppy). She came home super tired so we know she got plenty of play time in which is great. We're happy to have found a great place so close to home.
- Dugg Messana
Staff was very helpful and accommodating of my dog's weirdo quirks. I definitely felt comfortable leaving him overnight.
- Casey Rucins
We love Tucker pups! Thank you for always taking such good care of Cheddar. We love getting picture updates while he is there. We extended his stay an extra night this time and the staff was very accommodating and friendly about it. We know he is in such good hands when he is there and hope to bring him back soon!
- Megan Meiklejohn
I adore your staff! With them, I always know that my dog is in the best hands. Thank you for always taking such good care of my little friend.
- Caitlin Yacu
It was Bane's first time boarding at Tucker Pup's. He was very nervous and the staff was very sweet and patient with him. I loved getting pictures of him playing with the other dogs, it really helped put me at ease after seeing him so nervous. The staff was also very kind and understanding when we were running late (due to a flat tire) to pick up Bane. Overall great staff and accommodating facility. I'm happy I found a place I feel comfortable boarding Bane again in the future.
- Kayla Copsey-Mazur
Thank you so much for taking care of Hector during my holidays and special thanks to the care takers for making my dog comfortable during his unexpected extended stay.
- Iwona Brettner
Tori just came home from her boarding and bath. She is squeaky clean and looking extra adorable!! She seems like she had so much fun with the other dogs. Thanks for taking care of her!!!
- Jacob Johnston and Sarah Day
We have been taking Stan "The Man" to Tucker Pup's for a while now and we absolutely love it! The staff knows Stan so well and are always so nice to him. Every time I call to check in they give a full update on how he is doing, how he is eating and of course who he is playing with =) They make us feel so comfortable about him being there and I would never board him anywhere else! I love that they take photos of him playing and email them to us, i always look forward to those. I can't say enough good things about Tucker Pup's! Thank you to the whole staff for always loving Stan The Man and keeping him happy while we are gone =)

Belle always comes home looking like she has had a great time!
- David Read
Always such a wonderful experience at Tucker Pup's. The girl who did my dogs grooming today was very attentive, friendly and helpful. My dog looked amazing when I picked him up. The girls at the front desk are extremely helpful and friendly. My dog and I love this place and will keep coming back.

I am confident that Piper loved her stay at Tucker Pup's! Piper is a 15 week-old puppy. She stayed at Tucker Pup's for four nights. I received two pictures of Piper while I was away and she looked like she was having a blast with the other dogs.
Tucker Pup's employees are very enthusiastic about being with the dogs and are very considerate to owners. Being that Piper is a young puppy and her first time boarding, I called Tucker Pup's to check in on her every day, sometimes even twice. Each time the employee working with Piper in the playroom and the one that let her out of her suite in the morning spoke with me about how Piper was doing!
We are excited to start daycare at Tucker Pup's!
- Danielle Hyatt
We love how professionally tucker pups' staff takes care of our Spencer. They are always attentive to Spencer's needs.
- Mario Pineda
Forest has boarded at Tucker's Pup's several times with very positive results. He gets great care there, and, I know this because he's always happy to stay there.
He was pampered with a shampoo before coming home, which is important after playing with all the other dogs.
Thank you, and, Forest will be back.
- Nancy Lloyd
The staff was able to provide loads of details about how Sadie was doing from eating to socializing to sleeping. Sadie came home well adjusted and happy!!!!
This was an awesome experience and you have made a customer for life if we have this experience consistently.
- Jay Waldman
Lexi is very happy and the entire trip was made easier knowing she had a good time with a bunch of new friends.
- Michael Gallagher
This is the finest, kindest, safest, and most professional place in Chicago to board and or utilize daycare facilities for your pup. My dogs love this place and are always crazy excited to go there!
Thank you so much - AS ALWAYS - for taking such great care of our kidz!! And than you for accommodating us when we had to extend our boarding time.

He always returns home smelling lovely, feeling soft and with an adorable bandana.

We love how the staff takes the time to welcome our dog into the facility! We also appreciate the updates and the personalized care given. It feels like we are leaving her with family members and she always has a good time at Tucker Pup's. Thank you for taking the time and effort to care for our pup like she was one of your own!

Alec and I were very pleased about Spike's stay at Tucker Pup's. It was really nice receiving an email with a picture of him. Also, Alec and I both called Tucker Pup's a number of times to check up on Spike - your personnel was extremely helpful, patient, and kind each time. Thanks!
