Cedar Lane Kennels is an exclusive dogs-only establishment. We are located on three beautifully wooded acres in Downers Grove, Illinois.

The kennel is open for business 60 hours a week: Monday through Saturday 8 a.m. - 6 p.m. Special hours Sunday 9AM-10AM and 5:30PM-6:30PM. We are closed on Holidays. However, our kennel staff cares for your pets, our guests, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

Since 1977, Cedar Lane Kennels has been owned and operated by Peter and Susan Gabor. They have a staff of six to ten dedicated, dog-loving employees, who pamper your dogs to no end.

We are licensed and inspected by the Pet Care Services Association, formerly ABKA.

All of our guests are housed in individual indoor/outdoor enclosures. Indoors it is climate controlled, providing heat when it's cold and air-conditioning when it's uncomfortably warm.

All dogs have three types of bedding to choose from. We offer thick and soft wall-to-wall rubber mats, doggie cots or doggie benches to rest and sleep on. Our bedding can be topped off with fresh towels that are changed daily.

The outdoor exercise areas are shaded, covered, double locked and surrounded by a six foot high chain link fence. In accordance with state law, the surface is concrete so as to provide a more sanitary environment for your dog that is easy to clean.

Outdoors, the dogs can see each other through the chain link fencing. They can talk to one another, run next to each other or ignore one another while enjoying the fresh air. They can have up to four hours of outdoor time each day (weather permitting).

Doggie Day Care is available Monday through Saturday from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.

We specialize in customized Doggie Day Care. Customized means we (one of our trained and qualified staff members) will play with your dog one-on-one just like you do at home.

We don't believe in putting strange dogs together to play. This may lead to disagreements, confrontations or a scuffle and an injured dog or two. Also, a good way to prevent dogs from passing germs.

We offer three types of Day Care Packages: Gold, Silver and Bronze.

The Gold Package includes two (2) 20 minute play sessions (spaced out) during the day, and a 20 minute walk.

The Silver Package includes two (2) separate 15 minute play sessions, and a 15 minute walk.

The Bronze Package includes two (2) 10 minute play sessions, and a 10 minute walk

All packages include a light lunch and a special treat, our Super Health Snack: dog biscuits dipped in creamy peanut butter, sprinkled with flavored vitamin powder and topped with moist, crumbled liver treats.

The grooming shop at Cedar Lane Kennel is second to none. Our professional groomers can do it all: poodles, terriers, Schnauzers, hounds, shepherds, retrievers, setters, and more. Mixed breeds are also beautifully and creatively styled and groomed. We use more than a dozen different shampoos, conditioners and dog hair products for different types of coats and skin conditions.

As part of the grooming process, all of our customers get their nails cut (no nail polish) and ears cleaned. Each dog is brushed and combed out, de-matted, anal glands are emptied on small breeds, and each dog is shampooed, rinsed and fluff dried.

Stylish and seasonal bandannas adorn all of our groomed clientele.

2 Dogs Boarded here

We are now boarding and grooming our second golden retrievor at this kennel. We have been using this kennel for 14 years. We worked with this kennel when we did puppy obedience classes too. Pete, the owner, knows so much about dog behavior, dog allergies... We have always been very happy and highly recommend this kennel.

We have left our dog, Sam, at Cedar Lane a number of times and each time it has been wonderful. The last time was for 2 weeks and Peter decided that Sam needed to shed a few pounds. Well, when we picked him up this time, Sam was looking good! Both my husband and I saw the difference. I ended up calling Peter to find out what he did and he gave me detailed instructions to keep Sam's weight under control. I have been very pleased with Cedar Lanes and I have started to use them for grooming also, even though it is a bit out of the way for us. Sam always looks his best after grooming there. I'm glad I found Cedar Lanes - the care is exceptional and the rates are reasonable.

The Spa

by GailRetz , 05/31/2011

When our two doxies were puppies, my father-in-law who lived out of state became very ill and we had no choice but to kennel them. Our vest recommended two kennels in the area. We chose Cedar Lane and have never looked back. Cedar Lane is truly their second home. As a matter of fact, we refer to it as their "spa". Peter, Sue, and the crew to above and beyond when taking care of our Kleveland and Toledo!Gail Miskowicz-RetzDowners Grove, Illinois
