Dog boarding is a service that provides dog sitters to care for dogs while their owners are away from home and unable to care for their own dog(s). By hiring a dog sitter, owners can save money by not having to bring their dog to a kennel which in most cases are expensive. With dog boarding, owners can be in direct and constant contact with dog sitters to stay updated on the status of their dog.
Dog boarding caters to the following services:
- Caring for dogs of all ages and breeds, including puppies at a sitter’s home.
- Giving love and nurture to dogs as an alternative to solitary kennels.
The average cost of a dog sitter for one day and one night goes for $31 dollars. Simple dogs that are properly trained should have no cost increases. Long-term stays can bring down the nightly rate when booked ahead of time. The following information will be needed when determining the price for dog boarding:
- Number of Dogs
- Breed of Dog
- Age of Dog
- Size of your dog – Small dogs (1-15lbs), Medium dogs (16-40lbs), Large (41-100lbs), and Oversized Dogs (100+ lbs)
- Does your dog get along with cats?
