ABOUT USThe Standards Are Higher Here

WHAT WE STAND FOROur Mission

Doggy Days is a family-owned, brand new state-of-the-art dog daycare facility located in Round Lake Beach, IL. We are passionate about your dog and look forward to providing the same care that your dog receives at home, right here in our facility! We envisioned Doggy Days during the COVID-19 pandemic after we saw many new dog owners returning to work and needing a safe and caring place to rely on to take care of their dogs. Our co-owners, Tushar Mehta and Chirag Patel are both pharmacists who work in sterile environments each day, and coincidentally, everything from our floors to walls to ceilings has a unique touch to them that makes them superior to other facilities in terms of cleanliness and being germ-free. Because we are a small business and not a large, corporate-owned franchise like some of the other daycare centers, we are all ears when it comes to feedback from our customers and implementing new ideas that you want to see us offer at Doggy Days. Our experienced staff looks forward to making a personal connection with you and exceeding your expectations on a daily basis. We know that this is a place your dog will look forward to visiting and owners will feel good leaving their dogs with us. We are staffed 24 hours, meaning someone is always with your dog. Thank you for choosing our doggy daycare and we hope to see you again soon!

METICULOUS ABOUT MEDS

Chirag Patel
CEO of Doggy Days

Hello! My name is Chirag Patel. I am a pharmacist by profession, but a dog lover by heart. I have loved animals since I was a little kid and remember going to the pond with my friends to catch tadpoles and watch them grow into frogs. In my free time, I like to spend time with my wife, Shaily, and enjoy watching sports, particularly the NBA. I have two puppies, Max and Raja, who are purebred imported German Shepherds. If you come by our facility, you can meet them!

Stephanie Sisson
Manager & Marketing Director

I am a passionate dog lover. I have lived with many different breeds throughout my life. When I was young I was a Jr handler showing our Dobermans in the AKC obedience ring. I currently have a Doberman/Boxer mix, Duke, and a Rottweiler, Koda. I trained both boys in obedience classes.

Justin B.
Dog Trainer

Born and raised in Saint Louis. I grew up with dogs all my life and have worked at several day cares and animal rescue facilities since 2015. In 2020, I attended Tarheel School for dog trainers. After that I continued my dog training career and attended the prestigious Tom Rose School For Professional Dog Trainers where I enrolled in the Professionals Program. There I learned basic obedience, competition obedience, behavior modification, tracking, scent detection, agility and protection work. When I relocated to Chicago, I have continued pet obedience and worked with certified explosive dogs screening cargo. I actively compete in PSA dog sport with my Belgian Malinois, Maple, and have also just acquired a Belgian malinois puppy named Zombie who I will also be training to compete in PSA with.

Dana
Groomer

Hello, my name is Dana and I have been a groomer for 20 + years. As humans, we have been given the responsibility of having dominion over animals. And I don’t use that term lightly, because with that comes patience, discipline and passion. As a Groomer, you have to be able to observe and read a dog / cats body language to not only build trust, but also to ensure their owner that their safety and well-being is your number one priority. I hold myself to a High standard and my work reflects that. The main compliment I have Heard over and over again for the past 20 years in this industry is how clean I get these animals and how great they smell for weeks after. And that’s because in no shops they cut corners in that area for the purpose of profit over quality. My goal is to continue to carry that standard and to pass it down to other potential groomers, so my standard carries on through generations.

Happy to welcome you
to our circle of friends
