Boarding, daycare, training, grooming — The Dog District in Darien does it all. Formerly the Bel-kon kennels, customers may want to get reacquainted with this place. It's undergone a complete transformation into "a one-of-a-kind dog hotel."

How did your business get started?

With the help of two dog-loving investors, we ought the old Bel-kon kennels and turned it into a more dog-centric pet resort called The Dog District. We've been training dogs for a decade.

What is your business best known for?

We are a full-service kennel including boarding, daycare, training and grooming. We are best known for training. As trainers we are always doing training first, safety is so important to us so in daycare we make sure all the dogs are having fun but are also being respectful of each other.

Any specials?

We offer the first day of daycare for free.

And something people might not know?

We are fairly young, and have been training for long time on our own. We started as regular daycare employees and built up from there working at most of the dog day area in DuPage County. It's an awesome location with a lot of potential we hope to bring back old customers of Bel kon and show them a great experience.
