About Us

I am so proud and happy to present Earth Pups to you and your beloved canine companions. Opening this facility has been a labor of love, a long time dream and a tribute to my two rescued pups and the wonderful pups I’ve fostered and loved over the years. When I moved to Chicago years ago with my husband and my two small dogs, Jackie and Edna, I searched and was unable to find appropriate daycare or boarding for my girls. My husband Matt and I recognized the need for small dog care and combined that with a vision for personalized service and a passion for the environment – Earth Pups was born! We sought the services of a professional dog care consultant to build a facility and services to the highest standards, have chosen staff with the utmost care, and we believe we have set a new standard for small dog care. We have incorporated green building and green practices in our facility, so we can tread lightly on the earth and share it with future generations. As dog owners ourselves, we know how difficult it is to entrust your pet to someone. We take our jobs very seriously and we love what we do. We know you will feel the love and vision that went into Earth Pups as soon as you (and your pup) walk in our door.

Peace, Love and Pups™

Jackie and Edna

We’re so glad that Mommy and Daddy built Earth Pups so we can share it with our friends. It is so comfortable in the big playroom with the cushiony floor and so sunny out in the back yard. We’ve paw selected lots of different natural food and treats for you, too. Won’t you join us for some romping, playing and sunbathing soon?

Woofs and Wags,

Jackie and Edna
