We boarded our dog, Frankie, for a quick overnight about a month ago for a test run and he had a great time. I was impressed by how clean the place was (all organic cleaning products) and how wonderful the owner and her husband are with the dogs (and customers). I especially appreciated that our dog was not crated overnight, but given a private room with soothing music and lots of attention. We then boarded Frankie for multiple days in a row when we were out of town more recently. He was not stressed when we dropped him off and seemed happy to be able to play with the other dogs and see the owner again. I can't say enough about the owners' compassion and care for our dog. Frankie was relaxed when he arrived home and seemed very content. I will absolutely use The Spot again.

The Spot is great!! Very convenient, as we live further West from Forest Park and I drop Bailey off on my way into the city before work. Peggy, the owner, is one of the nicest people I've ever met. You get a real sense from her that she is a true animal lover, and has taken a lot of effort to make sure the facility is very clean and sanitary for the dogs. We'll definitely continue to bring Bailey to The Spot for Doggie Daycare.

Boxer really has a great time here when we go on vacations. Comes home happy and healthy and the owners are great w/ him as are the other dogs. They're on top of everything and have emailed and called when they've been concerned (first time, he wasn't eating so much, but hasn't happened since). He's happy and so are we. Used to make a long treck from Oak Park to Downers Grove to board him but glad to have found the Spot.

I do not recommend the spot, as my dog was bitten by the owner's dog, who is there regularly. Although my dog plays hard, he has never gotten into a fight. My dog had three wounds (1 that was very deep) and I wonder if other dogs have also had problems there. The owner did not call me or my vet after the fight - and she did not inspect my dog properly as said she did not notice he was hurt after the fight (but she admitted he was bitten by her dog when I picked him up the next day and there was a noticable 2-3" scab on the top of his back.) When I brought my dog back to show her the actual wounds after we saw the vet, it sounded like absolute mayhem behind the door and as if multiple tiffs were going on with the dogs. Although the owner was nice, apologized, and paid for half of my dog's bill (because it was her dog that bit him), I will never bring my dogs back there again. I told her I was concerned that her dog may be territorial. I am also concerned that they do not have enough control of the dogs. Regardless, I do not feel safe with them caring for my dogs.

For pets and their owners, alike. The staff at The Spot are absolutely amazing and the facility is absolutely unbelievable (in the best way imaginable).

I left my puppy in the care of The Spot for a full week. When I arrived home, I found that my puppy had even lost a little weight from all of the activity she had received while on her "vacation."

I would absolutely recommend this doggies spa to any one of my friends or family!
