We bring our dog to Pete and Mac's for daycare and boarding. The staff seems excited to see our pup when we come in, and they seem to really genuinely care about the animals. They also do little crafts and special things for holidays. The only con (and the reason I am giving 4 stars instead of 5) is because they do not have cameras for you to watch. If they added that, it would be amazing! They also don't discriminate AT ALL with breeds, which is a HUGE plus in my book.

My dog loves going here, he always runs in the doors so excited to be there. He is so tired when he gets home after being there for the day, staff is always friendly and very attentive to the dogs. Thank you!

Our dog goes crazy if we say "Doggy Daycare?" He can't wait to see his freinds and run & play. He gets lots of playtime in the morning and afternoon, he has his own good sized pen to hang out in, rest and eat when he's in his down times. They take great care of him. It's super clean and the staff seems to really love the dogs they care for...they know our dog well and that he loves snuggles. He comes home happy, clean and wiped out. :) We checked out a lot of places in Palatine and this one was a step or two, above the rest.

Our Aussie Angel loves Pete and Macs! It’s very clean, the staff is super helpful and they bathe your dog before sending them home to you. We’ve used other daycare/boarding facilities in palatine and did NOT care for them at all. Pete and Mac’s staff and facilities are 5 star for your four legged baby. Love the ID card with your pets photo they issue - so cute and novel, but even more, love how well taken care of my baby girl is whenever she goes, whether it’s for daycare, boarding or in-house training, we love this business and highly recommend!

We have used 48 days out of 100 day package we have purchased. We have decided to switch to a different provider and forfeit the remainder of the package. Pros: This is the best deal available on the market today, $800 for 100 passes, $8 a day vs $30 at the other place. Cons: 1. The place is dirty, you can smell it when you walk through the front door. 2. The staff is unprofessional: dirty/ripped uniforms, we have overheard one of the staff members yelling at dogs using vulgar language. 3. On multiple occasions we picked up our animal smelling like a dump, they claimed it's due to artificial grass they use in the yard. 4. We suspect they keep animals locked up for a much longer period of time than they supposed to. 5. There are no cameras, no idea what's happening inside, impossible to hold them accountable for anything. Finally, both my wife and I felt it wasn't safe taking our dog to this place anymore.

Our girl has been enjoying Pete and Mac's since it opened. She loves playing with her friends, jumping in the pool and playing with the hose. All of the pet guardians are kind and fun to be with.

We love this place. We have a fairly dog reactive rescue dog, and other places could not ensure proper care. Our pup Annie receives attention and love everytime. She cannot play with other dogs during daycare, so Pete and Macs gives her special attention. Annie always comes back pooped. Cody is her favorite friend! This place is great for our dog.

They held their YAPPY HOUR to benefit the Buddy Foundation, shelter in Arlington Heights, Il. The staff went out of their way to make it fun for all, games, food,raffles. The patrons who picked up their happy dogs loved it as well. Best place for boarding, day care. Also a great idea for dogs that have separation anxiety which helps their dog overcome their fear and allows their companion to have free time. Patty Fraser

Staff was knowledgeable and kind. There was good energy and Tully really did well with the gals. Just need to dry him a bit better next time, he was still very wet.

Good location. The smell and lack of natural light in the dog play area was slightly bothersome.

My dog pulls to get to the door faster when we get there and wags her tail SO SO SO much when she sees her caretakers. The workers are so sweet and accommodating always and I feel like my dog will be well taken care of.

Thank you so much for watching Cooper! The staff is so friendly and is so accommodating for my long busy workdays, I truly appreciate it! He comes home and instantly sleeps, what a good workout! So much better than leaving him at home & knowing he is in good care. Reasonable prices and outstanding service!

I was so relieved to have my pooch there over the 4th. She hates fireworks and after running with the other dogs all day she slept thru them. They even have an attendant at night. They give them a bath as well.
