Where developing a more rewarding relationship between you

and your dog is our goal.


Being a pet parent is a joy and a privilege. If you’re like us, you see your dog as an important member of your family. Since 1994, our goal has been to offer dogs of all breeds and ages, and their families, an opportunity to develop a truly rewarding relationship with one another. You will appreciate the personal attention, warmth and sophistication both our Palatine, IL Canine Centers offer. We invite you to visit us! Come see our facilities where you, and your dog, will learn and grow.


 In all the services A Closer Bond offers, we focus on the unique personal and individual needs of each of our clients and pets, as we help build a lasting relationship between the two of you.


  It's time to join the pack!  


“GREATEST PLACE...OTHER THAN OUR COUCH, FOR RUBY!! We have been bringing our 2 year old chocolate lab here since she was 8 weeks old.  The training (for her and us) is outstanding.  Ruby goes to day care three times a week and would go the other four days if she could uber herself there.  Seriously, the staff here are the best!”
