Bucktown Dog Boarding & Dog Daycare

Meet Catherine Crews!

Hi, I’m Catherine Crews and I graduated from the University of Arkansas with BA in History and in Art with a minor in Biology. I am also a Pet First Aid/CPR instructor Certified by Pet Tech. I have lived in Chicago since 1999 and have been working with rescue dogs since 2005 – in fact I have lost count of the number of fosters I have housed! There is nothing more satisfying than watching one of my beloved fosters find their new family – especially when they come back to visit and play at Canine Crews!

Carlos (aka “Fu-Man”) has become an integral part of my world as well as  apart of the staff of Canine Crews (he’s a 13 pound mess of Schipperke & Poodle with a bit of Pomeranian thrown in for some fancy prancing), we, and the team at Canine Crews would love for you to stop by and tour our fun and fantastic Bucktown dog boarding and dog daycare facility.

Drop it and leave it – my two favorite commands! 

What Our Clients Have to Say!

Today we toured Canine Crews at one of their events. Our dog goes to daycare 2-4 times week because of our schedules and LOVES it. We have also boarded her twice. She comes home a happy dog and her tail is always wagging. Pita is an energetic dog and being able to take her here is great because we know she’s happy to be there. She is a happier, healthier, well behaved dog because she comes here. Would recommend this place to anyone with a dog (and we have) – the crew at Canine Crews will make sure your dog has the best time possible (especially Alyson who is the best)!

Canine Crews has a great, caring staff that is quite engaged with their customer base, like for example, the option to buy professional photographer’s print of your dog (like a yearbook photo) an open house for all the pet parents, and even a cute competition among the dog clients for “class president.”

Not only are they affordable, but they do a stellar job with burning off your dog’s excess energy. I take her in once a week and she spends the entire next day snoring.

Erica O. Chicago, Il

We have a pitbull/mastiff mix who doesn’t care for other dogs in the least. This became increasingly apparent after he attended doggie daycare. However, the fabulous staff at Canine Crews knew how to handle him properly and while he doesn’t attend daycare any longer, we board him there when we go out of town (obviously he is kept alone). This is the only place we can confidently leave our large breed dog and know that he will be safe and loved and properly cared for by a confident and qualified staff. That is priceless for a pet owner!

Jules G. Chicago, Il

I am absolutely so happy with Canine Crews! I have a very excited and wild 3 year old pitbull and with a baby coming in 3 weeks I was feeling guilty that I wasn’t able to give him the exercise he needed. Canine crew made me feel so comfortable about dropping him off on his first day and also kept me informed about how he was doing. Drop off and pick up are so effortless and 15 min parking is available right in front! Canine Crew is a life saver and my dog is exhausted!!!! Thanks again

Canine crews has been a great place to keep my pup for daycare on my longer work days. He always comes home tired, and I’m pretty sure they wipe him down with something before he leaves (because he usually smells pretty nice). I also think their open house event was adorable – lots of free goodies and free beer.

Lynne L. Chicago, Il

Canine Crews is awesome.  My dog Edith is a nervous nelly, and they’re always calm and respectful when I bring her for dog daycare.  She goes in nervous, and leaves a calm, tired but happy girl.  They gave me updates on her trial day, and recommended she come in more for additional socialization.  I’m trying to get her there once a week because it’s so beneficial for her.  I highly recommend you use them for dog day care.  Haven’t used any of their other services, but I’m sure they’re awesome across the board.

Kati J. Chicago, Il

Great place to board my dog when on vacation. They have the most important quality you need in a service like this – they love animals. It’s obvious. You pay a little more than other services, but what’s a few dollars more for great service? Give them a try. You’ll be impressed!

DJ P. Chicago, Il

We may not have won Powerball, but we sure hit the jackpot with Canine Crews.  Our rescue, Brooks, has been a loyal fan for a few years now.  Their staff is top-notch, knowledgeable, and caring.  They really get to know their furry clients and create lasting relationships.  We are confident that Brooks is well taken care of and enjoys himself each visit and during walks and boarding.  He receives not only socialization skills, but enrichment and love.  Kirsten, their resident groomer, is absolutely spectacular.  Brooks allows a very small minority to touch his paws, however Kirsten has earned his trust to trim his nails and groom his coat.  We are really lucky to have Canine Crews in the neighborhood!
