The best time four paws can have!

General Info
Paws In Time is a state-of-the-art pet resort for dogs the likes of which you've never seen before. Dog day care, training, boarding and grooming services all within 20,000 square feet of combined indoor/outdoor space for a growing clientele of vigorous and very happy dogs. Owner Julie Nelson wanted something different to offer the community, something that met a basic need that simply wasn't being met for many dogs because of their owner's busy lifestyles... the opportunity for dogs to just be dogs. The opportunity to run, play, sniff, swim, socialize and explore. Paws In Time Pet Resort has plenty of space for boarding that includes 34 single sleeping rooms, plus 7 luxury suites. Even a full-service Doggie Day Spa! Our grooming department isn't your typical "turn 'em quick" operation either. Our groomers take their time and produce what many of our clients describe as a work of art when they're finished. Julie Nelson is often referred to as the "dog whisperer" by her clients. She's truly gifted when it comes to dog training, be it in a group "class" or one-on-one in a client's home. Julie is so full of knowledge and experience that she makes it look easy, often when the owner is at their wits end with their dog. She's worth every penny you pay for the quality of life you and your dog will have together for years to come. Paws In Time is conveniently located just East of Kirk Rd. on Fabyan Parkway on the borders of Batavia, West Chicago and Geneva, IL. People come from miles around to Paws In Time or use our convenient shuttle service. Paws In Time... The best time four paws can have! Come see this doggie wonderland for yourself!

Horrible.....Don't go there! Office staff has no clue. Owner is rude and just money hungry. Took my 4 month old to what I was told was a puppy class. First day of class they took her from me as soon as I walked in, and didnt tell me what they were doing with her. I stood there for the next 15 minutes stressing about her while the owner read out loud line by line her handouts. We could have done that on our own. Then they walk us in back and I see my baby in this huge cage sitting in the corner shaking like crazy trying to protect herself from the 6 - 8 other dogs in there that seriously were 20 times her size. She is 4 lbs these so called puppys were 80 - 100 lbs. There was a worker standing around but was not paying attention to what was going on. I will never take any of my dogs there. The office was dirty and stunk to high heaven.



Ellie -

I have a nine year old chocolate lab and a one year old black lab. I was fortunate to be able to be home to train my chocolate lab. After many years of going back and forth we finally decided to get our second lab. I also found myself having to work in my husband's office everyday. So, I thought I'd go to Paws In Time, since it happened to be on my way to and from work.

Everyone was so friendly and you can tell they are all dog lovers. We were bringing the Ellie to work with us for a while but decided she needed to go to daycare, which I swore I would never do!!!!

Elllie goes two to three times a week and I could not be happier and neither could she. She is also kenneled when we go on vacation and I can call and get an update. Within two weeks, everyone knew my name and hers. I personally can't wait to go in and see everyone, but most important is the care and love they give to Ellie each time she comes. What a wonderful and secure place you have Julie. Thanks so much to you and your staff.

Doggie Heaven

I have brought my dog to Paws in Time for over four years. It is an amazing facility that my dog absolutely loves, and Julie and her staff are fantastic. They are all dog lovers, and I leave my dog with them without hesitation.

We also get our dog groomed at Paws in Time. Their groomers do a fantastic job, and their rates are very reasonable.



Loved it

Paws in Time is an excellent service. We were worried about leaving our 1 year old puggle while we were on our honeymoon, but from all accounts, he had a great time and was well taken care of. I would highly recommend Paws in Time and plan to use them in the near future.



No way

Way to many dogs and not enought employee's. I and a few friends have checked this place out and noticed that no enough employee's are watching over atleast 80 dogs. Owner did not seem disstraut about it either. If you want your dog to not be supervised and are willing to pay EXPENSIVE price's for such horrible service than i suggest them. If you care that your dog is being cared for with responsible people than i suggest somewhere else.
