What Dog Owners Are Saying About

Top-Rated Dog Training & Daycare Provider in the Chicagoland Area

This place literally changed my life with my dog. We were on the verge of getting rid of our dog, we paid for the month of dog training and daycare and it has been a lifesaver! He has been so good, he’s not reactive on his leash, knows commands and also is much more social around other dogs. Plus on days my boyfriend and I work all day we drop him off and when we pick him up he’s pooped out and exhausted! Seriously recommend! Thank you Beach for Dogs!

I absolutely recommend this place. Animals are very well cared for, state-of-the-art water and filtration system, beds, toys, etc.  I also have several friends that utilize their services and are extremely happy.  Thank you for your outstanding work and service Beach for Dogs! My dog and I are a lot closer now thanks to your training!

Excellent service! Really nice staff and my pup was greeted by probably 30 dogs all sitting well behaved in their beds when we walked in. I’m impressed! My dog has tons of anxiety, but after a quick walk through his tail was wagging. A true sign of happy energy in the place since he will start shaking in other dog care places when they’re all locked up and barking. Worth every penny for quality dog care and behavioral training. Thanks for all the help!!! I don’t know what I’d do without you!

One day, it hit us…


With all the dog-service businesses popping up, we wondered whether they were really doing everything possible for our happy, four-legged fur balls. You and I know dogs are our children, with more legs. They deserve the same care and attention that we give our human family.

After doing some digging, we found that even among those that touted all-in-one dog service options, there really was not a business that met our criteria. Some doggie daycare locations did not have training services or grooming services. Others did not have products we were looking for; so if we were out of dog food, it meant an extra stop. Some were not clean. Some had employees who did not provide the love and care we required for our furry children. We did not like what we were seeing.

After lots of research – by us and our dog Ripley – we set out to create an experience that our dogs – and your dogs – would love.

Welcome to Beach For Dogs, where every day is like a day on the beach with the family.

When we strived to name our business…

We thought about where our dogs always seemed to have the most fun. It’s the beach, of course! Whether oceanside, on the lakefront or even beside a pool, our dogs were always having fun when they could romp along the water, with the occasional dip to cool off. Tails wagging, ears flopping and smiling, what could be better than a day at the beach?

That is the environment we set out to create at Beach For Dogs. We want your dog to have a tail-wagging good time whenever they visit. Whether it is for daycare, grooming or training, it is our goal that your dog is treated like one of the family, which they are.

How does that translate to our training? Beach is actually an acronym which stands for Behavioral, Educational And Coaching Health for dogs. As an owner we know you want your dogs to behave well, so we’ll teach them how, coach you on how to keep your dog well behaved, and you’ll have a healthy life with your pup.

When your dogs visit Beach For Dogs, they become one of our family members. Surf’s up – come on in!

Dog Grooming

So Fresh & So Clean

Going to the spa is a treat for anyone – and when your pooch is in need of a haircut, brush out, mani-pedi (aka nail trim) or just a good ol’ shampoo, our trained staff can tend to all of your dog’s grooming needs. Our grooms typically range from 3-4 hours, but should your dog need a “straight through” appointment, we can accommodate this for a minimal charge.

Dogs love coming to Beach For Dogs because, as you to like be spoiled at your spa, we ensure their time here is full of gentle pampering. We will always do our best to make their experience as enjoyable as possible. While we do require a reservation for grooming, we do not require one should you need to pop in for a nail trim, ear cleaning, gland expression or teeth brushing.

Dog Training

Good Boy

At Beach For Dogs, we believe that good dog training must be humane, fair, effective and fun. Our Directors of Training specialize in behavior and training, instruct & supervise our entire training program.

We provide a variety of training venues from behavior consultations to private sessions, specialized for you and your dog’s individual needs. Group classes are available for puppy, obedience and pet manners, agility, games and tricks. Also available are private and semi-private classes in: pre-acquisition counseling, problem solving, preparing dogs for the arrival of a baby, massage and conditioning.

Our approach to humane training uses positive reinforcement, operant conditioning clicker training and ‘The Third Way’ training. “Our goal in training is to teach owners how to effectively communicate what they want to their dogs, and to build a strong and dedicated partnership based on respect for each other.” Proof of vaccinations or titers is required.

Dog Daycare

With a Purpose

If you could choose to spend your entire day – everyday –with friends laughing, joking, shopping, throwing a ball around – wouldn’t you? Isn’t that what you want for your dog while you’re at work? A dog’s life is a privileged life. They are some of the luckiest creatures on earth and we want to see to it that they know how much they’re loved and appreciated. Bringing your little pal to spend his or her days at the Beach is a guarantee they’ll be pampered, loved, exercised and, to your benefit, worn out by the time you pick them up.

Our locations are designed with state-of-the art heating and air-conditioning systems, brand new matted floors and individualized spaces for your dogs to take a break during the day.

Dogs are given four to five hours of structured, supervised playtime with playmates of equal size and temperament in a controlled social environment. And each furry friend gets one individual walk during the day – and plenty of time to chill out in his own kennel.
