Chicago Dog Boarding

Dog Boarding Overview

Get Started

Tucker Pup's dog boarding is the perfect solution for when you travel and want your dog to stay in a home away from home that is safe, reliable and fun. Our staff go the extra mile to provide the best care possible, in a clean and safe environment that your dog will love.

This means you don't need to find a friend to take your dog, and your dog will probably be much happier than if it were sitting around all day. It's like a vacation for your dog when you travel!

PetScanner System

Dog Boarding Barcode Scanning
Our Barcoding System Helps Ensure Accuracy

Other facilities use paper, outdated software, marker boards, or rely on employees to follow your instructions and to identify which dog is which. This can easily lead to risks such as your dog getting someone else’s food or medicine, or even the staff bringing you the wrong dog at checkout. The issue is magnified when two dogs look alike, which is a common occurrence at all pet businesses.

In contrast, Tucker Pup’s has built our own proprietary technology, called PetScanner, to ensure total accuracy when giving your dog food, medicine, treats, grooming, and breaks. We also use it for tracking laundry, belongings, and special instructions. We even use it when bringing your dog to you.

With our PetScanner system, every dog in our facility wears a tag with a unique barcode. In addition, we place a barcoded label on any food, medicine, or treats that you bring. We then use mobile devices, equipped with the most highly sophisticated software in the industry, to scan your dog’s tag, and any corresponding labels, whenever we take an action such as giving food. The software does not allow the staff to proceed unless the barcodes match, and it communicates all instructions in real time.

This is an unparalleled system in the industry, giving you even more peace of mind when your dog visits us. It enables us to notice trends immediately, take the right actions with every dog, every time, maximizing safety and security while minimizing the chance of human error.

And Train

Sample Stay and Train Exercises

With our Stay and Train program, our training staff can work with your dog while here for daycare or boarding. We can supplement work you are doing at home, giving your dog more repetitions to help it master the commands that you specify. After you check out, our staff can meet with you to discuss what we worked on, so you can be consistent and achieve your goals.
