Our Mission

Doggie Depot was created in June of 2006 with a simple goal: Provide a fun and safe
environment where dogs can play while you’re away. Colleen and Brian McLachlan have
been involved in the doggie daycare industry for years, first as customers, then industry
observers, employees and owners. As life-long lovers of Golden Retrievers, it just made
sense for us to love your dogs as well.

Doggie Depot is a unique facility located in the heart of Downers Grove, IL.

  • Our three facilities have allowed us to specialize the care of your pet. The original location is a 9,200 square foot daycare and training facility. It is fully climate controlled for your dog’s comfort. The attached 1,000 square foot play yard is landscaped with synthetic turf for fun in the sun!
  • Our second Doggie Depot facility opened in April of 2011.  We do daycare and boarding at this facility located at 635 Rogers Street. This 10,000 square foot facility offers both Suite and Crate boarding.
  • Our newest facility is 16,000 square feet and is located at 421 Maple Avenue. This facility contains 20 Hotel Suites, 5 indoor play yards and 2 outdoor play yards. We do all of our boarding at this new facility, as well as daycare.
  • Our rubber floor is the safest type of floor your dog could ask for: non-slip, clean and
    safer to play on than a cement slab.
  • Our low prices and special offers will save you money- the more you come, the more
    you save!
  • As always, love and affection is FREE!!

Doggie Depot is inspected and licensed by the Illinois Department of Agriculture. We are
a fully insured facility and take pride in offering the best pet care available.
