Each of these city-specific dog-resource directories takes all of the guesswork out of finding new dog shops, services and places, including dog day cares, boarding facilities, pet sitters, dog parks, dog trainers, pet boutiques, alternative therapies, and neighborhood pet-supply stores. Each listing includes not only the address, phone number, hours of operation, and payment information, but also an original review that offers readers the inside scoop on each business. Also included is an emergency directory that's essential for middle-of-the-night ailments, a dog rescue directory, puppy starter kit, and lost dog help. The listings are arranged in an easy thumb-through layout and the book is perfectly sized to fit in a pocketbook or glove box.

Reviews - What do customers think about City Dog: Chicago (City Dog series)?
City Dog Chicago Apr 21, 2005
A friend of mine told me about City Dog Chicago, and I was very pleased to see accurate reviews of local pet businesses in my area.
Not only were the reviews honest and accurate, the book as well informed me of tons of helpful dog services available in my neighborhood that I would have never known about. I think City Dog is a must-have for any busy dog owner living in the Chicago area.
Sincerely, Melissa Green Chicago, IL
Full of location inaccuracies Apr 15, 2005
Whoever wrote the Chicago edition either is map impaired or does not live in the area. They also are west suburban phobic. All the stores, bakeries etc. that are directly west of the city are listed under south suburban. By omitting a west suburban chapter, this book is less appealing to people who live in that area.
Last time I looked, Evanston was in Cook county. The editors place it sometimes in Lake County, sometimes in Cook.
I recently discovered that while the information gatherers are from Chicago, the book was mapped into locations in LA. Hence the inaccuracies. It is an excuse, but one from which many lessons should be learned. Don't always count on those computer maps. It is not like looking at the atlas yourself.
Hopefully, in a later edition these errors will be corrected.
