Hi! My name is Rebecca and I am an animal lover by nature. I grew up surrounded by animals and raised a Border-Collie mix pup to live a long, healthy and happy 16 years! I have walked dogs, house-sat, and cared for all kinds of pets for over 16 years. Obedience classes & agility training courses were part of the growing up process with my own dog, Sara. Mostly we had a fun, goofy time just playing. She went everywhere with me! Since she passed away, I take any chance I can to be around my canine pals. I've always had an affinity for dogs large & small, with boundless energy or a calm disposition. I know how important it is to have your dog(s) well-cared for while you are busy or traveling so I am here to help! I am always up for a leisurely stroll in the neighborhood, brisk walk or challenging hike. Whatever your needs are I can meet them. I feel very fortunate to be able to walk a variety of dogs. It would be my great pleasure to meet your dog and make a new friend!

“Worry not, I’m here to take your dog out on a walk”

Hi! To begin, my name is Ezequiel! I was born and raised in San Francisco. Since I was a kid, I’ve owned multiple pets. My first dog was a Chihuahua named Baby. Next, was a Border Collie mix named Sierra. After they passed, we rescued a Pitador mix named Nala, who’s currently seven years old. So it goes without saying, I’m a natural when it comes to dog walking. With an customer approval rating of 4.97, I promise your pup will be in good hands. I look forward to meeting your pooch!

Dog Boarding in Alameda

Searching for dog kennels near you in Alameda, CA? Before you start comparing costs and touring competing facilities, take a moment to consider the overnight care options available with Wag!.

When you book dog boarding or dog sitting in Alameda through the Wag! app, you give your dog the gift of staying in a welcoming home rather than in an intimidating kennel environment. Your dog gets personalized care and all the love and cuddles they can handle, which means you don’t have to worry about leaving your pooch behind when you go traveling.

So if you’re looking for quality care for your pup, let’s take a closer look at how to find the best dog sitting and dog boarding in Alameda for your fur-baby.

Average Cost of Dog Boarding in Alameda, CA 

If you want to book dog boarding in Alameda for your dog, you’ll need to compare boarding facilities thoroughly to find the right venue for your pooch. Check out what amenities different facilities have to offer, and take a tour before deciding whether they’re the right spot for your pooch. 

Of course, cost will also be a factor in your decision. For a basic kennel in Alameda, you can commonly expect prices to start at around $55 to $65 per night. If you want to treat your dog to a stay in a luxury suite, prices can be much higher. 

It’s also important to check the terms and conditions so you know exactly what you’re paying for. While some kennels offer all-inclusive pricing, others charge extra for things like group or one-on-one play sessions, which can quickly drive the cost of dog boarding in Alameda skywards.

Meanwhile, if you compare Alameda dog boarders with Wag!, you can potentially take advantage of much cheaper pricing. The pet caregivers on our platform offer rates starting from an average of $44 a night, which means you can secure quality care for your pet without leaving a big hole in your hip pocket.

For those dogs who prefer the convenience of staying at home, there are plenty of pet sitters in Alameda who can care for your furry friend. Once again, you’ll need to compare a variety of people to find someone with the right experience and personality to look after your dog, while price is another important factor.

Average prices for dog sitting in Alameda start at around $85 per night. It’s a good idea to check the fine print before you book, however, as not all sitters have all-inclusive fees. Tasks like walking your dog might incur an extra fee, so do your due diligence first.

Alternatively, if you decide to book Alameda dog sitting with Wag!, you’ll be thrilled to hear that the caregivers on our platform offer rates from just $39 per night — now that’s the sort of value for money your pooch will want you to grab with both paws!

Once you know you’ve found someone who has what it takes to look after your fur-baby, you’ll feel a whole lot better about leaving your dog behind. And because you get regular photo and video updates throughout their stay, you won’t miss out on any of the action.
