Charlie's Doghouse is a quality Daycare, Boarding, and Grooming facility located In Crystal Lake, IL. Bursting with over 6,000 sq. ft. of Doggie Fun, Charlies is a bright and cheery climate controlled facility. An experienced, caring staff will lead the supervised play to assure the safety, wellness, and fun of all of our furry friends! We use all pet-friendly products and emphasize cleanliness throughout the entire facility. We take pride in being a family owned business and promise a day full of endless fun for your pup and a relaxed companion for you when you get home at the end of the day. After one day with us, their tail will be wagging for more!The dogs provide our best testimonial as they drag their owners into the building on return visits. Dogs can't fake their enthusiasm.
For that pampered pooch, we offer the ultimate in boarding options: 24 hour care. Sometimes, boarding your pup is harder on you than it is on him. Since your dog is never alone, cage-free boarding gives you the peace of mind you need to be able to enjoy YOUR time away. It is highly recommended for dogs that suffer from any type of anxiety, such as separation or fear of storms.This option provides an experience that is practically free of stress-for you and your dog. Cage-free boarding includes a fun day in daycare, after which your dog will settle down in a home like setting on a comfy bed or cozy couch, whatever makes them feel at home. If he prefers sleeping in a crate and is used to it, one will be put in the room for him. After a treat and maybe a movie, the slumber party pups are more than ready to sleep the night away, with their human caretaker close at hand.
We offer spacious, yet cozy doggy suites--complete with comfy beds, toys and treats, and soothing music by which to sleep at night. Or you may bring your pet's favorite bed, blanket or toys. The familiar scent will reduce any potential anxiety and make them feel at home. To avoid stomach upset, we recommend you bring your dog's regular food, but if it's not a concern, we supply a quality house dog food. Boarding also includes a full day of daycare! Your pooped-out pups (no pun intended!) will be ready to get tucked into their cozy den at bedtime for a little rest and relaxation.
Why Doggie Daycare?
If you are like most dog owners, your pet is more than just that-a pet. They are our faithful companions, our best friends, our "kids". As a family member, we want them to be happy. Daycare gives your dog the exercise and socialization he needs to be healthy-physically and mentally. Because we have busy lives, our beloved pets are often left home alone, which can be very stressful for them and cause separation anxiety or behavior problems. Or your dog may be very energetic and require a great deal of attention after you return home from a long day at work. At daycare, your dog will get all the socialization and exercise he needs to come home a happy and relaxed pooch. Doggie daycare will give you peace of mind during the day AND a peaceful evening.
We are excited to announce the opening of our full service grooming salon! With the fortunate addition of award winning groomer, Kim Wood, to our staff, we can confidently offer the finest in dog styling services. Kim attended the Academy of Dog Grooming Arts and has been grooming for 15 years. She has perfected her trade by working with top groomers from across the country and has received awards for her excellence in grooming. The precision of her cuts is truly amazing. But what really sets Kim apart is her handling of the dogs. She is gentle and patient and believes that grooming should be as stress-free as possible for the dog. For example, she will not cage dry her "clients". This can be very stressful for the pups, so they receive a much more soothing hand drying.
