Dog Boarding

Our suites are the perfect home away from home for your four-legged best friend.

Paw-Some Boarding for Your Canine Companion

Whether you are only going to be gone overnight or will be away for several days, you should never entrust your canine companion’s care to just anyone. Leaving your precious pup overnight is a huge deal, and you need someone you can trust to keep them safe and happy while you’re away. For dog boarding in Chicago, Andersonville, Ravenwood, Lincoln Square, Uptown, Edgewater, Lakeview, Wrigleyville, and the surrounding areas, look no further than Bow Wow Lounge. Your dog will love enjoying their very own vacation in our state-of-the-art facility.

Our dog hotel is heated and air-conditioned to ensure year-round comfort and safety for our guests. Our Standard suite is 4'x6' and our VIP suite is 8'x6'. Plus, when you choose our VIP suite, you’ll even be able to watch your dog snooze via their room’s webcam.

Policies and Pricing

All boarding guests must pass our Meet and Greet and complete at least 2 half days of daycare prior to your pet's first boarding reservation. We’ll contact you to schedule your Meet and Greet after you submit the paperwork online. We also require proof of Rabies, Distemper, Parvovirus, and Bordetella vaccinations and a negative Fecal Exam. All dogs older than 10 months must also be spayed or neutered. For reservation cancellations, you must cancel by 12pm day of reservation, or a $30.00 fee will be charged to the card on file.

What to Bring

Each of our suites includes a cot, but you are welcome to bring additional bedding to make your canine companion feel more at home. Please make sure it can be taken apart or is small enough to fit in a small washing machine (in case it gets soiled while here).

You are welcome to pack toys and favorite belongings from home. However, we ask that you do not bring any edible chew toys as they can pose a choking hazard. Please divide your dog’s meals into individual containers to ensure that your pet gets the appropriate amount at each meal. Do not bring bowls. Please be sure to fill out our Pre-Boarding Check In form.

Your dog might tear up their toys or other belongings while here, too. Please understand that this is beyond our control, and we are not responsible if your dog damages their belongings.
