Our Facility


OBKC underwent extensive modernization from 2013 - 2016. New stainless steel suites, fencing, LED lighting, power upgrades and flooring were added to our already sprawling facility. We've added filtered water, a backup generator, fire and alarm systems. We installed 24x7 temperature monitoring and video surveillance - all designed with your pet's comfort and safety in mind. 


We don't use harsh chemicals and our suites and runs are cleaned by hand daily.

We're a family owned and operated local business. Our Owners are on-site every day and decisions are made over a cup of coffee - not in a boardroom.


We're pet care professionals and it shows in our level of cleanliness, our standard of care and in the reception you'll receive when you walk in our door. 


The safety and comfort of your pet is our #1 priority. All of our Staff are trained in pet first aid and CPR. OBKC is an accredited training center and our Owner is a Pet Safety Instructor.

A Rich History


Welcome to the Oak Brook Kennel Club. We specialize in customized care for your pets - AND we're right in the heart of residential Oak Brook.


The first kennel in Oak Brook was opened in 1946 and has operated at this location ever since. Long-time Oak Brook residents - Dave & Denise Grooms - took over in 2013 determined to honor the legacy of the property while expanding and modernizing it's facilities. 


OBKC is nestled on two lush, wooded and shady acres featuring stately oaks and features two super-sized outdoor grassy play areas. We have 40 indoor/outdoor runs for dogs of all sizes. We have 30 indoor suites too. Our private and secluded feline suites are plush and comfortable. Plus, we'll care for your avian and reptilian pets while you're away too!


Best of all - we're conveniently located close to YOUR home and work.
