We’re Experts in Doodles, Retrievers, & Smaller Breeds

Happy Pup Manor only works with a select set of breeds for both training and boarding. This means that your pup will be surrounded by friends with similar personalities and playstyles at all times. Plus, our extensive experience with doodles, retrievers, and small breeds allows us to better understand these unique pups, their behaviors, and their needs.

Luxurious Accommodations Provide an Amazing All-Inclusive Boarding Experience
  • All Exclusive Home-Based Boarding Experience –Pups are instantly put at ease by the comforts and familiarity of a home environment, surrounded by a pack of loving, playful fur friends, as well as a highly trained and compassionate team. With over 6,000 square feet of space to explore, there’s always something to keep your pup busy, or a trainer available for cuddle time.
  • 30-Acres of Outdoor Play Space –Pups get to spend lots of time in our 4 fully-fenced, natural grass private dog parks – AKA our backyard! This provides ample space for the pups to run, jump, fetch, or just soak in the sunshine. And unlike a public park, these spaces are private, fully fenced, well-supervised, and filled only with similar breeds, so pups never feel intimidated or overwhelmed. Our boutique set up ensures that there are always enough friends to play with, but never too many.

All-Inclusive Boarding with Happy Pup Manor: The Experience

What is the average day like for a pup staying at Happy Pup Manor?

It’s full of fun! In the morning, the pups will all head outside for some playtime. During this time, our team will supervise play and refresh sleeping quarters. Then, breakfast is served in their individual area. Next, it’s more playtime! Pups can play inside or out, and we always make sure to allow for frequent potty breaks. Pups will eat dinner in the late afternoon/early evening, and then have a final potty break between 10-11 p.m. before bed. 

Stress-Free All-Inclusive Boarding for You and Your Pup! 

We know that choosing where to board your pup is a big decision, so we want to make it as easy as possible. As such, we offer all-inclusive complimentary chauffeur services for those in the Chicagoland area, as well as a complimentary bath and blow dry for your pup in our salon before coming home. At Happy Pup Manor, our clients are better able to focus on their own vacations or work-related trips with the peace of mind that comes from knowing their pup is being treated like royalty. You’ll receive videos and pictures of all the fun your pup is having while you are away – try not to get jealous!
