About Us

Sit Stay Swim is located at 6511 Elevator Road, Roscoe, Illinois.

Welcome to Sit Stay Swim!! We specialize in making your pet’s experience the next best thing to being home for doggy daycare and boarding. We believe in creating a vibrant, dynamic experience with the love and companionship we give our own pets. The vast majority of the dogs dogs are kept cage free in the house. Sit Stay Swim does have a few kennels for dogs that are aggressive around other dogs or have negativebehavioral issues. They will explore and experience new environments and they will snooze on beds after a day of exercise and personal attention everyday, all day.

This is not a job, this is a dream come true … to be surrounded by dogs everyday.

Cherie Hogland has been caring for dogs and cats and all kinds of animals for over 40 years. Her goal became to provide a barding facility for dogs that does not include cages or kennels. Sit Stay Swim provides a cage free alternative for boarding your dog. The dogs stay in a designated area of the house where we maintain a home-like environment so dogs can play with other dogs and have constant human contact. The boarding dogs are supervised 24 hours a day and Sit Stay Swim is open 365 days a year.
