My dog is small and a little shy. Can the Bellyrub Klub meet my dog’s needs?

We focus on the temperament and overall disposition of each dog, not size. The Klub has plenty of room to create a variety of playgroups as needed. While active, social dogs of all sizes play together, we also have other areas where quieter, shy, or less active dogs can play and enjoy their day too!  Soon, they will be comfortable enough and play with their new BFFs!!

We use the Wheaton Animal Hospital, Lombard Veterinary Hospital, DuPage Animal Hospital or, if its not an emergency, we will contact your own vet!
