About Frank

40 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Boarding for dogs weighing up to 25 pounds only. My name is Frank DeMarco and I have worked with dogs for over 35 years. I offer boarding for special needs or just plain special small dogs, Your dog will live in my home as one of my own. They get on the furniture, sleep on my bed, and play in my totally secure large backyard under my supervision. No extra charge to administer medications or to prepare special diets. We will strictly adhere to your instructions concerning your pets’ diet and care. If diet is not an issue, the treats we use are chicken breast that we bake ourselves and then dry. We also give pieces of carrots and apples,
I have trained for and served as Director of Training for North Shore Dog Training Club, the oldest AKC member Obedience Club in the nation. I also was the Director of Obedience for Argon Schutzhund Club, ran the obedience classes for the City of Skokie for over 15 years, and ran my own group and private obedience classes. I have been boarding dogs in my home for over 15 years. While I have retired from training I still love being around dogs so now i do boarding and get to play with new dogs plus my own.

A Meet & Greet is required prior to us accepting any new dog. I have a detailed questionnaire that owners fill-in before the dog's first stay. Besides owner info and medical info on the dog it asks questions about your dog’s preferences and behavior.

excellent sitter, my pet Lily feel Frank's home is her own home.
Frank and his wife were warm and welcoming to our little Goober. We left her for 15 days while we went on our honeymoon. She was very excited to see us but clearly well cared for as she gained weight and was sparkling clean!

We really appreciated the photos and updates.

Kallie loved her "vacay". She came back such a tired pup from playing all weekend. We felt very comfortable with Frank and Elaine and are so thankful to find a wonderful home close to us.
