Testimonials

I can’t say enough great things about Bark and Play. It is invaluable to me that Mac has a place to go every day with a team of loving, dedicated, and honest caretakers.  I recommend them to anyone looking for a reliable and trustworthy daycare for their pup. Cassie E.

We love Bark and Play! More importantly, Wilma (the pup) LOVES Bark and Play! Fernando’s pick-up, and drop-off doggy daycare was life changing for us! As full time working dog parents, we wanted to provide our girl with the most attention and interaction possible, and at almost twice the cost of day care, two walks a day just wasn’t cutting it! Wilma gets to run around and play with her buddies all day, and when we get home from work she’s ready for chill time with mom and dad. The best. Thank you Fernando and team! Wilma J.

My passion for dogs started in 2006 when I walked into the Anti Cruelty Society. I never visited a shelter before, and I was lost for words when I saw so many homeless pets. On that day, I adopted Jazz. My love for dogs grew from that point on and the rest is history.

At Bark and Play Chicago, we take special care in assuring our furry friends have a worthwhile experience. To that end, our day-care philosophy is built around three important principles: Socialization, Fitness, and Safety.

Last but not least, we pride ourselves in having a SAFE daycare. Every dog is up-to-date with vaccinations, which allows us to control kennel cough and other canine infectious diseases. Also, we do a meticulous job maintaining a CLEAN environment. We follow a detailed daily protocol in disinfecting our play areas using doggie safe supplies. In addition, we reinforce basic obedience during their playtime to promote acceptable ‘lively’ behavior.

At the end of the day, the hearty sounds of dogs barking as they eagerly chase and play with each other gives us immense satisfaction. We build lasting relationships with both dogs and owners because we sincerely love what we do.
