We Chicago

And, we know we’re not alone. We happen to share our hometown with some of the most amazing mutts around — of both the dog and human kind. It also happens to be the home of Montrose Dog Beach, the city’s first ever off-leash dog beach and USA Today’s 10 Best People’s Choice for America’s Best Dog Friendly Dog Beach.

This year, we’re opening a brand new onsite area at the beach to enhance the experience like never before. Our new facility will be featuring self-service dog wash stations, dog-training sessions with Chicago’s Urban Pooch and much more! We’re thrilled for what’s on the horizon!
