As you pack up and ready yourself for your spring vacation, make sure to make those arrangements for your pets. All over and near the North Shore there are wonderful places where your beloved pooch can have their own little vacation. Here are a few that I’ve come across:
All For Doggies in Chicago provides transportation for your pet if you don’t want to make the trek from the ‘burbs to the city, has webcams so you can see your dog while you’re away, and offers lots of extras such as bedtime stories, cuddletime, ice cream treats and premium beddings. You can have your dogs groomed before they come home, and they will send home a little “report card” so you can see the details of your pets’ stay.

And, if your dog prefers the comforts of its own home while you’re away, check out Northbrook Pet Nannies. If you have a dog that might not do well in an unknown environment with lots of other animals, this is a good way to go.
