Established in 2010 - where we treat you and your pup like family. See more from our Instagram feed.


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.



"They are amazing. I was really nervous because my neurotic collie has a lot of anxiety. Not only does he LOVE the Dojo, it seems like they love him. We will never go anywhere else! They take such great care of our pup, we love the Dojo!"

- Alison, Buehrle's Human


"I honestly cannot say enough good things about The Doggy Dojo! Everyone there is so helpful, caring, and thoughtful! My dog Poptart LOVES coming and is so excited whenever I drop her off. I recommend them for daycare and boarding to everyone! 

- Stephanie, Poptart's Human

"Transitioning from our old dog daycare was seamless. The Doggy Dojo does a great job of giving you updates and making you feel comfortable. They are easy to communicate with and make transportation and payment super easy."


- Keelin, Hank + Wendal's Human
