  • Playgroups are selected with the utmost care, taking your dog’s energy level, breed, and age into account when choosing the best playmates
  • Each dog gets plenty of rest opportunities between playtimes to relax in a comfy, climate-controlled private room.

Dog Daycare FAQ

What vaccinations are required for dog daycare?

To keep our daycare guests safe and healthy, we require all dogs be up to date on vaccinations for rabies, distemper combo, Bordetella and a negative fecal exam. We highly recommend the canine influenza vaccinations for all dogs but require it for dogs who live over 15 miles from our Geneva, IL facility. During active local outbreaks of canine influenza or leptospirosis, we may temporarily require these vaccinations, and will communicate these occurrences with our customers.

Do you require reservations for dog daycare?

Your dog’s safety is most important to us. We maintain the best level of staffing every day, keeping our group sizes down and supervision top notch. Therefore, we do require reservations so we can plan accordingly.

How old does my dog need to be to attend DePAW?
Fully-vaccinated puppies at least 10 weeks of age are welcome to play with us.
How does dog daycare benefit dogs?

Daycare is especially designed to benefit dogs by providing them a safe and secure outlet to have fun, exercise, and socialize. DePAW Pet Resort’s daycare program keeps your pet’s mind and body active, exercises their social skills, and channels their energy in healthy ways. It’s proven to reduce challenging behaviors born out of loneliness and boredom, such as excessive barking, destructive chewing, digging, and more.

Is your dog daycare area outside or inside?

We have both! There are large indoor and outdoor play areas for each side. Overhead doors lead out from inside play areas to large outdoor play area with play equipment for them to explore. We close the outside doors in case of inclement weather.

My dog doesn’t like to play with other dogs, would they still enjoy dog daycare?

We appreciate that some dogs would rather play with people than with the “pack.” Our customized daycare program, “Pack-Ademics” includes several thought-provoking activities, small group play or one-on-one playtime with staff so your pup can have tons of fun doing whatever they like most. They’ll enjoy all the fun of our play yards, K9 Recreation & Fitness Center, pools, playground and toys while soaking up the attention of a caregiver.

Can I come in for a tour?
Yes, we’d love for you to see our resort. Please visit us during our operating hours to go on a guided tour with a knowledgeable staff member.
Do you require a trial evaluation?
We keep our daycare program as safe as possible by ensuring our guests are comfortable with a social play environment. Your dog’s first day is an “introduction day,” free of charge, where we get to observe your pet’s preferred play styles and determine if they’re a good fit for the group. If your pup seems to prefer playing with the staff, we have a custom play program just for dogs like him/her.
