    Protecting Your Dog’s Paws in the Winter

    Baby, it’s cold outside! Although the temperature in Chicago is well below freezing, it almost feels balmy compared to those frigid single digits we experienced last week. While the temperature may have risen a few degrees, the several inches of snow bestowed upon us isn’t going to melt anytime soon. Although having the white fluffy [...]

    6 Tips for Keeping Your Dog Safe on Thanksgiving

Reliable, affordable care.

The Doggy Dojo was established in 2010 by Oscar Cruz and Carlos Zambrano, lifelong friends who share a passion for animals. The Dojo is a place where dogs of all sizes and breeds from around Chicago come to play and socialize in a safe, clean, and comfortable environment. We keep our prices low to ensure that dogs from all types of homes can get in on the fun.

Dogs have plenty of room to romp in our 5,000 square feet of indoor space, complete with two separate play areas (for small and large doggies), plenty of natural light, and a recycled rubber floor. Our fenced outdoor space is more than 1,000 square feet and its water hoses and kiddie pools make it a popular summertime hangout. At the Dojo, we actively engage your dog in play and supervise them at all times.

If you’re interested in our services, please contact us. To begin daycare, we’ll have to first set up an appointment to meet you and your doggy in person. We’ll also also need two sets of keys to your home (if you are requesting pick-up and drop-off services or dog walking), and a copy of your pet’s vet records ensuring he/she is current on all routine shots.
