Meet and Greets take place in the pet's home or in the boarder's home, depending on where the service will be performed. Each new client receives a complimentary meet and greet, which is an important way to introduce your pet to his or her new buddy!
Between the Chicago traffic, lugging the kids around, or being swamped at work, it can become difficult to find time to go on an adventure with your fuzzy friend. Thats where we come in! Whether you need us 1 day a week or 5, we are there to make sure your Pup is going on as many adventures as his or her paws can handle! New Clients get their First Dog Walk FREE!!!

Give your dog the gift of PLAY!!! Drop-off on your way to work and pick-up on your way home! Doggy Daycare can also be paired with our Beach Days for extra summer fun! 
There is no feeling worse to a dog than being lonely and missing their human. When you have to leave town on emergency, for work, vacation or for any of the many reasons we humans travel, rest assured your BFF will be in loving and caring hands with The Grateful Dawg. 
Have a pet who prefers staying at home? No problem! Schedule Pet Sitting through The Grateful Dawg and one of our highly qualified sitters will not only make sure your pal doesn't get lonely or bored, they'll also make sure your house is safe too!
From May to October, the best place to be in Chicago is on the beach at Lake Michigan! Lucky for us, we are only a few miles away from the Montrose Dog Beach, where your dog will run, play, and swim. He or she will be returned to you happy and cleaned up after all the fun. 
Can’t find time to get your best bud to the vet? Need a ride home from Doggy DayCare or to the Dog Beach? Our Hybrid powered Pet Taxi can get your pet where they need to go! 
We've all been there! Mud up to our ears, covered in slobbers. Sometimes it just has to be done! We use Paul Mitchel pet products and offer a basic good old scrubbing and towel drying. Nothing to fancy. Dog size does determine the price and availability.
