Lexi is very happy and the entire trip was made easier knowing she had a good time with a bunch of new friends.
- Michael Gallagher
This is the finest, kindest, safest, and most professional place in Chicago to board and or utilize daycare facilities for your pup. My dogs love this place and are always crazy excited to go there!
Thank you so much - AS ALWAYS - for taking such great care of our kidz!! And than you for accommodating us when we had to extend our boarding time.

Watson returned home happy, with no issues. He always enjoys his stays and the staff does a great job providing updates on his stay. Absolutely love the photos and comments provided!
He always returns home smelling lovely, feeling soft and with an adorable bandana.
- Adam Majewski and Erika Von Borcke
We love how the staff takes the time to welcome our dog into the facility! We also appreciate the updates and the personalized care given. It feels like we are leaving her with family members and she always has a good time at Tucker Pup's. Thank you for taking the time and effort to care for our pup like she was one of your own!

Alec and I were very pleased about Spike's stay at Tucker Pup's. It was really nice receiving an email with a picture of him. Also, Alec and I both called Tucker Pup's a number of times to check up on Spike - your personnel was extremely helpful, patient, and kind each time. Thanks!
- Joanna Evans
Bart seemed to have a great time! We liked getting updates regarding his play, eating and grooming. We also loved the pictures of him!

We had Penny Lane stay at Tucker Pup's over the Thanksgiving holiday, and although we were very hesitant to leave her, while we traveled home to Denver, she was in great hands. I appreciate all of the phone calls I received back when I called to check on Penny - even on Thanksgiving Day! Thank you so much for all of the photos of Penny as well - they made me feel at ease.
Thank you to all of the wonderful staff - they are fantastic!
- Erin Carroll
Our experience was GREAT at Tucker Pup's! We were so nervous about leaving our dog for the first time overnight and you all made it nothing but stress-free. When we picked her up, all of the handlers had little comments about her stay! "She loved the female handlers, and we liked holding her and giving her pets!" "She was nervous about me (a male handler), but that's okay, she's just so cute!" It made us know that everyone really cared about her and us as owners. We will for sure be back again for Christmas and other vacations...thank you for giving us the freedom to travel stress-free and know that our pup is being loved like at home.
- Becca Frank

Jasmine always comes home very happy. I like that the staff takes detail notes on how she is playing and feeding. I also appreciate when I call for an update the staff explain to me how jasmines mood is throughout the day.
Thanks for looking after jasmine!

I like how fast the staff is at responding to emails when I reach out for updates on Chip's stay. I also love to receive photos that you post on the website.

Rocky is always excited to spend the night at Tucker Pup's. He was happy and clean when I picked him up today and your staff, as always, was wonderful!
- Margaret Tilson
Five stars is simply not enough. I cannot say enough good things about our experience. The entire staff went above and beyond my expectations. Boarding a new puppy is a stressful thing but my fears and concerns were eased immediately. I am very impressed at the one on one attention Cooper received. The staff was welcoming and very attentive to Cooper's needs and behavior. Even though I was concerned at his timid behavior on his first boarding day (and having to be taken out of group play for the day) I was very thankful for the updates and that Cooper still received enough attention, play, and care. Every update was very appreciated and I never felt like I was bothering the staff. My concerned as were quickly put aside after we heard he did so well by his second day. I seriously cannot say a single bad thing. Every staff member we talked to and worked with was amazing - Katrina, Abby, Alexa, Chris, and more! We love you. And Cooper can't wait to come back. Thank you guys so so so much for taking care of our little baby.
- Annie Hardin
This was Harvey's second boarding stay at Tucker Pup's and I love that your team welcomes us to call anytime to get an update on Harvey. The team tracks everything he does, so I always get a thorough update.
- Callie Jones
This is the first time we've boarded our dog. We were nervous but I really felt your screening was thorough which was reassuring that you were serious about his safety and satisfaction. We increased our reservation from 5 to 9 days confident he would have fun and your prices are more than fair especially for a big dog. Sadly he was a stinker and wouldn't eat while he was there. Chris called us and troubleshot options. I was so embarrassed my big beast was being such a baby, but I was never worried. Chris went above and beyond to give him TLC and earn his trust. Chris and the rest of the staff eased his nerves with personal attention beyond what I ever expected. They spoiled him more than grandma does (she can no longer keep up with him).
Please thank all of his care givers! I loved the photos and reports of his activities. I have already told his doggy friends and my coworkers about your amazing care.
- Kimberly Leslie
Very happy with Jane's stay over the weekend. She is absolutely exhausted so I know she had a great time. I loved being able to see pictures of her while we're away. I also called to check in once daily and they always have me in depth reports on how she was doing! We will absolutely have her stay there again!
- Abbey Mckenney
You guys are fabulous!!! If we even mention Tucker Pup's around Emily, she acts like a complete nut!! She comes home exhausted and is always excited to see everyone that works there!!! Woof, Woof!!!
- Rebecca Sandstrom
This was our first time boarding our dog, Finn, and it couldn't have been a better experience. We were nervous to board, mostly because Finn is a 10 year old spoiled dog who sleeps in our bed every night (LOL) so we definitely thought he would be a little freaked out. Turns out, he was like a little kid at summer camp.
Your staff is awesome and I loved getting pictures every few days. It definitely helped ease anxiety on my end.
We also had him groomed and he looks great.
We will definitely be using your services going forward and look forward to booking our next trip!
Have a great week,
Jillian and Brian

Honestly I was a little nervous to bring Bonnie to a daycare but I have felt nothing but comfortable having her at Tucker Pup's. She is tired every day, and I feel so much better that she's not just sitting at home sleeping but getting exercise and playing/mental stimulation. I also feel great knowing that the whole building is designed with dogs and safety/health in mind. The photos are AMAZING, they make my day, and I feel like the staff really care about the animals. My family makes fun of me for treating my dog like a child but I feel like the staff at Tucker Pup's take as good of care of her as if she was a kid not a pup. The staff are also always very helpful, great at moving things a long at busy times and responding to any questions I've had. I highly recommend this daycare to all of my friends, and it is fabulously located only 5 minutes from my apartment, and near the green line. Thanks for doing such a great job!
- Maureen Loughran
One of the hardest things about traveling is leaving Maui! I feel a little better knowing that she is in good care at Tucker Pup's! Thank you for taking such good care of her and for the updates and photos. They really help and make me feel better when we are away. :)
- Tony Ochoa
We enjoyed seeing pictures of Bruno while we were boarding him. We did the tour and trial daycare prior to boarding and were very comfortable with Tucker Pup's Pet Resort taking care of our pup! Thank you for everything! Bruno seemed very happy!
- Brooke Sloan
This was our first time using Tucker Pup's, after boarding at another nearby place several times. We loved how much your staff walked us through procedures, it made us feel very comfortable. After taking a tour we realized how professional your operation is. We especially love that the dogs have some time outside everyday, that was the selling point to us. That combined with the pictures that were sent will keep us returning!
- Craig Edwards
Archie is always so happy to board with Tucker Pup's! We love the photo updates!
- Lauren Zullo
This was Milly & Nola's first time boarding and you all were great with them.
- Beth Tyler
I called once during my dog's stay to see how she was doing and was very impressed with the level of specificity of the response. I experienced that same thoroughness when I picked her up and asked how she had done. I would recommend Tucker Pup's to anyone needing care for her pets.
- Deborah Varner
Excellent communication and I could tell the staff were attentive and caring. The photos taken were a surprise bonus.
Thank you for a great boarding and grooming experience!
- Charles Arthur
This is Luna's second time staying with you and we are very pleased. Right now, Luna is passed out on the couch, which is always a positive sign!
I especially appreciate the little stories from your staff about how she did cute things. They are very friendly and it really shows how much your staff cares about the dogs!
- Megan Brady
Everyone is so positive and they enjoy sharing stories about how the dog had fun, interacted well and described the dog's overall experience. Great dedicated staff!
- Denise Delves
Our dog Champ loves being at Tucker Pup's and playing with other dogs (he gets very excited when we get him out of the car and he pulls us towards the entrance). It's been a great solution for what to do when there are weddings and other events -- he enjoys being there and we don't worry about leaving him home alone for an extended period of time.
- Beth and Dan Ralston
This was our first time boarding Bailey with Tucker Pup's and we are very happy with the facility, the staff demeanor, professionalism, and most importantly, how happy Bailey was to go in upon arrival and when she left. We love getting a picture during her stay too. Thank you for taking great care of her!!
- Kevin Karnchanaphati
Every time we take our dog to Tucker Pup's everyone is extremely nice and very professional. I'm so thankful Tucker Pup's is In our neighborhood.
- Sara Griffin
All the handlers and trainers were extremely friendly and confident. I was completely comfortable leaving Athena in their care. Thanks for all you did!
- Malika Jackson
Staff friendly and professional. The tour of facility eased my mind. It was clean and orderly. My Lab was already in the mix and was happy. I will recommend.
- Catherine Caldwell
Dogs seemed well cared for while boarding. Pictures are great! All dog areas seem clean and dogs seem happy. After a tour I felt my dogs would be secure and taken care of. I will use Tucker Pup's again for boarding!
- Judith Necaise
Sharky seemed to really warm to the staff during his stay. My wife and I are greatly appreciative of this. It is good to know we have a safe and "happy" place to take him next time we travel.
We have only had Sharky for a couple of weeks. The picture that you sent to us during his stay was by far the best photo that we have of him. Thank you so much.
- Justin Fathi
Thank you for accommodating us on short notice with 2 special needs dogs. We appreciate the level of care that you demonstrated.
- Kate Walker
Every employee takes great care of Walter every time he is there and give me a full rundown of how Walter did when he was with them. He loves going to Tucker Pup's!
- Ray Rodriguez
Mischa and Lilly obviously had a great time at Tucker Pup's this past weekend... They have been exhausted since I brought them home! I really appreciated all the details I was provided each time I called to check on them, especially since this was Lilly's first stay. I could tell the staff were really paying attention and involved with the dogs. We will definitely be back!
- Kati McArdle
Your staff was wonderful with my pup Bentley, who was traveling with me and stayed for 2 nights during our cross-country trek. It was great to get a very detailed email update of how Bentley was interacting and eating. Eased my mind a great deal, as he had been quite anxious earlier in the week. Thank you! I hope to be back again in the future.
- Valerie Lind
Samson is a very high energy dog and it is obvious he gets a lot of playtime in at tp's as he is still sleepy the next day after picking him up! This is great for us since we could use a rest after our vacation! The staff gave us a full report at check out and were very nice and professional. We will be back!
- Amanda Raschke
It was Ruca's first boarding experience, but overall it went well. Seemed very organized and Ruca had fun. She was exhausted when she came home.
- Celeste Horazdovsky
Brady always has the best time at TP's! It's reassuring knowing he is in good hands!
- Kelly Fortin
I had a concern when I dropped off Gracie for boarding that she wouldn't go to the bathroom while she was here, especially during the day. I had noticed that she always really had to go as soon as I picked her up from her daycare over the last few months and I didn't want her to hold it during her boarding time. I casually mentioned it to Ashley and she e-mailed me later that day to assure me that she had checked with the handlers on the floor and they noted Gracie did go to the bathroom and also that she did drink a good deal of water during the day.
I appreciated that Ashley took my comment seriously and sought to relieve my worry.
- Susan Knibbs
Thank you to the entire Tucker Pup's team - as always I have complete peace of mind that Kyoto is being taken care of while I'm away. He loves the play time and can't tell you how much I appreciate the photos, it warms my heart to see him playing!
We travel over an hour away to bring Kyoto to tucker pups so he can be boarded AND have open play during the day. This service is completely invaluable and appreciate him being so active and worn out when he comes home.
Thank you again.
- Neco Patlan
Brody had his first ever boarding stay here and it seems as if he loved it. All the photos online showed him interacting peacefully with the other dogs - something I've never seen him do without barking or howling. I received regular updates from the staff about his behavior, eating habits, etc. I am so impressed with how they handled him, especially knowing that he was a bit anxious about his first boarding experience. They worked with him one-on-one, adding soft food to his meals and changing his bowl size to encourage him eat all his food. I am so glad I found this place. I definitely will be bringing Brody back to Tucker Pup's for all of our daycare and boarding needs.
- Kristin Oca
Wonderful experience for our pup. He was well taken care of and returned to us happy and healthy and TIRED!
