  • Why should we stay at Til Mar?
    We are here to serve our community's canines because we want to be! This isn't a means to an end, or a stepping stone to other opportunities for us. This IS what we love. Til Mar has been a privately owned kennel since it began in 1973, and will continue to serve Homer Glen and the surrounding area's pups with the same passionate care that we're known for. We treat each dog as our own, and always strive to make this your pet's favorite home away from home.
