Dog Daycare Testimonials

Get Started

I love the way that everyone on your staff welcomes Caprio any time he comes in. His 'normal' schedule has changed this past year, so he doesn't come in nearly as often as he used to. Sometimes he is hesitant before he comes in, but as soon as he gets in, he is happy to be there. The staff recognizes that Caprio is a 'people dog.' We have noticed this to also be the case at home. Tucker Pup's is indeed like a second home for Caprio and I cannot tell you enough how lucky we are to have you in our lives, as well as Caprio's! Thank you!

Our dog perks up as soon as she realizes she is headed to daycare at Tucker Pup's! Once she's in the door, she doesn't even look back to say goodbye- she's so excited to get into the room and play with her friends! The staff at Tucker Pup's is very skilled and instill confidence that your dog is in good hands with a group that cares and wants to make sure your dog has a good and safe experience.

Chicory has an awesome time at daycare. We are so happy that she has a safe, fun environment to get all of her pent up energy out! Thank you!

- William Ferguson

Thank you Tucker Pups! I feel a sense of comfort every time I drop Leo off for daycare knowing he's in good hands.

- Andrea Cangialosi

I recently started bringing my dog to Tucker Pup's (he has been to daycare three times). I work from home, so it is purely for his enjoyment and socialization. I had been a long-time customer of another daycare business in Lakeview (even after moving to West Town), but Tucker Pup's is much more convenient for me. So far, I'm very pleased with our experience. Cane is a rescue so I worry a lot about his happiness and safety, but he is always happy to arrive and is pleasantly tired afterward. I'm a big fan of the online booking and the detailed feedback that I get when I pick up Cane. I'm happy that I found a new place that I can trust! I have already recommended Tucker Pup's to friends.

- Dani Muckley

We have had a wonderful experience so far, everyone there has been amazing! Thank you for making this transition of adopting a dog with separation anxiety so much easier!!!!

- Hawley Newhouse

Staff is very friendly. All my daycare requests are confirmed very promptly and I'm always informed how many days I have left at pickup. I would like to give a special shoutout to Alexis. She's always extremely friendly and seems to genuinely care about the pups. My dog Boone is clearly very attached to her and very happy to see her when I drop him off in the morning which tells me he's being very well taken care of.

- Mary Glenn

Our experience at Tucker Pup's so far has been great - staff are super friendly and Lincoln is so excited every time he sees the building. When I toured the facility I was very impressed by how clean it was kept - very different from some other day care atmospheres I've seen, and the air ventilation system is also a huge plus.

Lincoln can be a handful, but the staff seem to take it in stride and helped me to get in contact with your trainer. Thanks again for all of your help; I would recommend Tucker Pup's to any dog owner!!

- Candace Tkac

We absolutely love dropping Harriet off with you guys knowing how much love and care she gets when she is at Tucker Pup's. When we get in the car, her tail starts wagging and she ecstatically jumps out of the car to get inside and play. Our favorite part is getting photos throughout the day of her playing with her pals. Thanks for everything you do!!

- Madison O'Connor

Beau absolutely loves coming to tucker pups for daycare! He gets so excited when we pull up. When we get home he goes to sleep right away and I can tell that he has had lots of exercise and fun with his doggy pals. I refer all of my friend to you when they need daycare and will continue to do so. I really like how you give feedback about how his day was. Keep up the great work!

- Taylor Storbakkken

Everyone is friendly and attentive. I feel great about leaving Rory with them.

- Natalie Banie

My dog and I moved here from Texas a few weeks ago and my dog had never been to doggy daycare or in a big play group. She was a bit anxious because of many things - the move, a new city, new apartment, no yard to play in but today was day 4 and she was so excited to go to doggy daycare! I was very apprehensive about taking my dog to doggy daycare but the staff called me to give me an update on her behavior each day and the pics they posted were great, you could visibly see the change as she became more confident with in the playgroup! I also really liked that i was able to view her when i came to pick her up and see progress each day. By the end of day 3 she was bouncing around and playing with all the dogs, no longer following the handler with ears back being shy. I am so happy with how it has all worked out and how my little Godzilla has come out of her shell with the help of the Tucker Pup's staff. This place has been soooo helpful with my transition to Chicago.

- Marisa Canez

Great staff. Great attention to details and follow up.

- Cara Wallace

I've had a wonderful experience with daycare services. The handlers are very sweet to my dog and even put him in one-to-one play one day when he had a bad limp. I was so happy with that and it gave me peace of mind for the day. I wish I could bring him every day!

- Curin Herman

We are extremely satisfied with the daycare services. My dog Scout always seems to have a great time, and the staff universally seems to love the dogs and treat them well. We also very much enjoy the pictures that are sent occasionally. Overall we are very happy with Tucker Pup's and would recommend you to anyone in the area.

- Brian Beach

Thank you so much for taking such wonderful care of Gail . She enjoys going to daycare and receiving all the attention from her handlers. Thank you again - your staff is great.

- Sandra Flood

We love Tucker Pup's and the best part is our dog loves going there.

- Rose Spinozzi

Sylvia really loves her time at Tucker Pups! She gets excited in the morning when it's time to head to daycare, and is always in a good mood and happy to see us at the end of the day. Sylvia has a ton of energy and loves to play, and I know that she gets plenty of exercise and playtime with the other dogs, because she is ready to drop (in a good way) by the end of the day. When we pick her up and load her in the car, you can hear her start to snore on the way home... she's been "Tuckered out"!

After touring the new/renovated facility, we were very impressed with Tucker Pup's, and we are very satisfied with the care she receives, and the overall experience. It's nice to know that everyone at Tucker Pup's really cares about the dogs and enjoys spending time with them. Thanks for all that you do and keep up the good work!

- Jesse Zahorik and Ruthie Labedz

Everyone at Tucker Pup's has been great, especially Rachel. We are very confident that our Layla is having fun and being treated well when we drop her off for daycare.


- David Moreno

I like getting pictures of my dog throughout the day. Staff really seems to care about the pets and their well-being! I love how staff knows all the dogs names.

- Elisa Brennecke

The team is awesome - always friendly and very affectionate toward my dog. The facilities are great and I find the location very convenient!

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

My dog Lucy loves going to Tucker Pup's. She easily goes with the staff when I have to leave. I loved getting the pictures today of Lucy. It was a great surprise to receive while I was at work. Thanks again. She always has a good time and comes home exhausted.

- Cristina Flores

Everyone at Tucker Pup's is amazingly patient with Poko, our behaviorally challenged dog. They are also great to our other dog Henry. We couldn't do it without you guys.

It was Bean's last day of daycare/ grooming today before we move to a new city. I just wanted to share how happy I have been with the service the past few years! I really appreciate how much attention and kindness the staff show to Bean. I was really touched by how sweetly they all said goodbye to him today. The grooming he got today looked super great too, so thanks to the awesome grooming staff.

I know he will miss spending time with all his dog and human friends there. I can't thank you guys enough because I could not have had a dog during my time in Chicago without Tucker Pup's!

- Kathryn Ritchie

We are so extremely happy with the amazing customer service, care for our sweet grace, and communication we receive daily from your team. We adopted grace last Saturday and wanted to find a place that would give her lots of attention and play time with other dogs in a very safe and clean environment. I would recommend anyone who needs day care to use your services.

We as well will be starting to use your grooming services for grace and our 6 year old dog that gets to hang out at home during the day while grace gets her puppy energy out at day care!

Thank you for hiring such an amazing and educated staff to love on her while we are working.

- Julia Herro

I've had Jordy for almost a year now. He's a super energetic, super happy dog. However, he is not always a fan favorite with the other dogs in most day care places. Some places won't take him and the one place that will take him, won't put him in play groups.

I've been at Tucker's for a couple weeks now and it seems like everyone just loves him and "gets" his energy. Its hard for me to train him in playing with other dogs. I can run with him, teach him things individually, etc. but I cannot teach him how to play with other dogs on my own. I believe he is getting an amazing social experience here. I know he can be out of his mind with other dogs but the handlers handle him so well.

I appreciate all the hard work that goes into running Tucker Pup's. This is, by far, the best place I've come across for Jordy. Most places are judgmental and, quite frankly, lazy. Not here. Everyone I've dealt with loves dogs, knows that dogs come in many varieties and many different levels of energy. Hopefully, in time, Jordy will stop trying to wake up all the dogs to play with him but, for now, I absolutely appreciate the patience the staff shows with him. I can only hope he doesn't wear their patience too thin and they all hang in there with us!

- Rebecca Smith

Great place to bring our pup for daycare! He is always excited to go and comes home exhausted from a fun day!

Can't wait to try out some of the other services in the future.

- Montana Manenti

The Tucker Pup's staff is friendly, respectful and great with our dog.

- Megan and Kosta Benetatos

The staff are super friendly and helpful. I really like how they always have feedback on how my dog did for the day. And I like that they're honest even if the dog didn't have a great day; I appreciate that.

I also really like the pictures that get taken, it give me a snapshot of how happy my dog is with all others, and the captions are pretty funny.

- Maria Trujillo

This was Bear's first time in daycare and he loved it. My husband dropped him off in the mornings and said that Bear ran off with the attendant and didn't look back. He was also tired in the evenings and not so excitable. I also loved seeing the pictures of him in action. Thanks for taking care of my little Bear!

- Lisa Bender-Patterson

We have been a big fan of Tucker Pup daycare. Kitty and Bear come home exhausted! We love it!

- Julie Bouchard

Lucas loves everyone there and everyone there loves Lucas.
What more is there to say.
Thanks for being great at your job.

- Brandy Corboy

Riley is always very excited to go to daycare and is treated extremely well.

- Jason Grodsky

Bella looks happy when I drop her off and when I pick her up. she exudes peace. I don't sense any anxiety on her part, which I have experienced at other places in the past with my old dog the recently passed away.

- Jade Maze

The people who work at Tucker Pup's are knowledgeable and caring. So glad I found this place both Beckham and I couldn't be happier. Thank you.

- Sharon Pierce

We are extremely happy with how Orion is treated at Tucker Pup's. Especially after experiencing other daycares, it is clear to us that Tucker Pup's and the staff go out of their way to make sure Orion has a positive experience. We also appreciate that the staff are knowledgeable about Orion's breed and play type, we have found that other places rush to judgement because he is a pitbull.

- Adam Gonzalez

Friendly and helpful staff. New to daycare and everyone has taken the time to answer any questions we have had. Easy to schedule, cancel etc. Overall, very impressed and excited we found Tucker Pup's!

- Kalie Claytor

My dog is always excited to go to daycare and comes home exhausted, all good for me!

- Liela Morad

The people at front desk are fantastic, polite, and professional. They gave detailed reports of our dogs' behavior and activity while at day care.

- Joshua Lee

Our puppy enjoys coming to Tucker's Pup. The staff are very caring and friendly. Many of them know her when we walk in. We love that she gets to play and the staff can provide updates on how she is doing if we call. Thanks for taking great care of our Sweet Pea!

- Jennifer Naylor

Starting with the initial screening call all away through today and Kai being groomed I've experienced nothing but happiness from all the staff and Kai!

The end of day reports are great to hear and being a new dog owner with Kai and her being a bully breed we wanted her to "fit in". It's sounds like she is doing just that and us being able to give her the opportunity to interact and play with other dogs then see her happy (tired) little face at the end of the day is what it's all about!

Thanks to Tucker Pup's she's getting to enjoy being a dog and not at home in a crate for 6 to 8 hours a day!

We are very happy with our decision to go to Tucker pup's!
