Dachsies to Danes is a family owned and operated boarding and grooming facility serving Lee and Ogle counties. In business since 2000. We also have a rescue facility where we house rescued Chesapeake Bay Retrievers who are waiting for their new homes. Our facility is protected and monitored 24/7 by a state of the art security system and we have Ashton Veterinary Clinic on call for any pet emergencies, and the owners live on the property to be around at all times.
