Customer Testimonials

My 9.5 year old bloodhound comes to Top Dog Retreat twice a week for daycare and stays for boarding when I am out of town. She loves coming to play with all of her “young friends” so much that she starts to howl when we arrive. I’m sure that all the love and fun and exercise is keeping her young!

I am really happy that we found Top Dog Retreat and Sasha is happy too. Our confidence in the experience she has when there is very high, evidenced by the way she drags me into the facility when I drop her off. We are also grateful for the boarding so she is in a familiar environment and we can vacation worry free. Everyone is very nice, seems to know Sasha well, and they like her. I also am aware that they care for Sasha’s special needs when there are thunderstorms or other weather changes. I highly recommend Top Dog Retreat.

Top Dog Retreat has been a blessing! They are thorough, professional and courteous. I transferred my dog from a different daycare and I can tell you first-hand that Top Dog Retreat should be called Top Notch! They evaluate your dog, take the time to speak with you on their observations, and most importantly my high-energy dog is well taken care of!

Colette C, Elmhurst
Top Dog Retreat has brought us major peace of mind … all of our worries about who could care best for our dog when we are not able, have been alleviated. Our dog Duke attends daycare and occasional boarding and he can’t wait to get there and play.  The staff is top notch with handling him and giving us tips on how to be better dog owners! We couldn’t be happier with our choice! We love Top Dog!

Since the day we first came to tour Top Dog Retreat, we have loved it.  The facility is top notch, the staff well trained and knowledgeable, and the customer service is excellent.  Josie comes for periodic daycare and boarding.  She loves walking in the door and is never anxious to leave.  We were most impressed with the evaluation process to assess her personality and ability to interact with different types of dogs. We know she is happy and in good hands when she is at Top Dog Retreat.

We love Top Dog Retreat! Our dog loves Top Dog and doesn’t want to come home…which makes my kids sad ; )  The best experience is bringing Remy because she’s so happy and tired when we pick her up! Great group of people — very professional and nice!  A++++

Mark S, Chicago
We started bringing our dog CiCi to Top Dog Retreat after realizing that using a dog walker wasn’t giving her the exercise and mental stimulation she needed. Now, when we walk in their door at 7am her whole backside is wagging — every time. Dogs can’t fake being happy and excited. CiCi loves coming to Top Dog Retreat…and she returns home tired and happy.

We have been customers at Top Dog Retreat for well over a year and a half now. I can honestly say the staff have been lifesavers. To say that our dog is “energetic” would be a tremendous understatement. Not only is Bear able to get all of that extra energy out, I know that he is in a safe environment with professionals that truly know their craft.  Donna, Jan and the team are great about reinforcing good behavior and not allowing bad habits to fly as “OK”. We have seen marked differences in Bear’s general behavior and attitude, responsiveness to commands, as well as he no longer views the couch as his.

The staff at Top Dog Retreat are always friendly and wonderful with our dog Dallas. Dallas loves coming to Doggy Daycare twice a week and the staff members are very accommodating when we need to switch days. Our family also feels very comfortable boarding Dallas during our trips out of town – we know that she is well cared for and Dallas loves it!

We’re creating happy paws daily! We’re in the business of caring. Daycare, Boarding, Training … what are your needs, and those of your dog?
