Chicago Indoor Dog Parks – exercise and socialize your pup this winter
Here are 5 great Chicago indoor dog parks that will help your pup get some exercise and socialize this winter! If you are looking for an organized Chicago dog play date / Chicago dog meetup group you can check out our group at www.meetup.com/ROMPRescue. We try to schedule 1-2 meetups, play dates, and fun activities with our pups a month and for most, all breeds are welcome (big, small, old, young, rescued, mutts, pure breeds, shy, outgoing and everything in between).
1. Of Mutts and Men
This is one of the Chicago Indoor Dog Parks, they are located at 2149 W Belmont Ave. Our group met there several times last winter and overall people seemed to like the place. They charge $3 per dog and $3per human. The facility can be reserved for a group for $120 for three hours.
2. Urban Out Sitters
They have two locations: 729 W Randolph and 3241 N. Dayton St. We had one event there this year at the Randolph Street location. They charge $5 per dog and offered both indoor and outdoor play areas. Since they collect the fee based upon the number of dogs who attend, there is no requirement to pre-pay. Everyone gets along well and it is a great place to have a nice afternoon with your Chicago dogs for a play date or meet up!
3. Dog Gone Fun
They are located at 1717 S State Street. The charge $35 per hour and up to rent the facility. This is a flat hourly rate, regardless of how many dogs or humans attend.
4. All for Doggies
They are located at 1760 N. Kilbourn Ave (near North Ave & Grand Ave, just past Pulaski). The facility is very large and clean and the staff is very friendly. There are both indoor and outdoor play areas available. The owner, Phillip, is a fan of Chicago dog play dates. The location is a little bit awkward to get to which can sometimes be a deterrent.
5. The Houndry
They are located at 3945 N Sheridan Rd (at Irving Park & Sheridan Rd)
Tiffany and Jack are the owners and are very nice dog loving people. The facility has a nice SportsImpact floor which unlike concrete is safe for dogs joints. The staff is warm, friendly and very attentive.
We hope this helps you in your Chicago Indoor Dog Parks quest! Feel free to join us at our Chicago Indoor Dog Parks meetups during the winter for some fun and play time with your dogs: it’s called COME SIT STAY PLAY (on Meetup.com)
