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 Albany

While the Bay Area is an idyllic place to live with your barking buddy, you'll no doubt be looking to escape Albany every once in a while for a change of scenery. Whether you're going away on business for the weekend or planning a two-week getaway, you'll want to get the best possible care for your pup.

Kennels are one of the most popular dog boarding options in the US, but they may not be the most comfortable place for your fur-baby to spend the night. In-home dog boarding and sitting is an affordable alternative that's gaining traction across the country. 

Not only will your canine compadre get to sleep soundly in a comfy setting while you're away, but you can also organize some added extras for your pup. 

Many caregivers offer dog walking services in Albany, so your pup can stretch their legs while you're away. Taking in the views from the Stonewall Panoramic Trail in Berkeley is sure to help put your pup's mind at ease while you're gone. 

Planning to book your pup in with a dog sitter or dog boarder in Albany? Here's a look at average pricing for overnight pet care in the Bay Area. 

Average Cost of Dog Boarding in Albany, CA

How much does dog boarding cost in Albany, CA? Albany dog boarding facilities generally charge between $70 and $100 per night. An overnight stay usually includes potty breaks every couple of hours, supervised outdoor playtime, and a private room for your woofer. 

It's worth noting that many of these facilities charge extra over busy holiday periods. You'll also want to check what you're allowed to bring, as some boarders only let your fur-baby bring a blanket and a toy. 

Remember when the check-in/out times are — you'll get charged for an extra day if you don't pick up Fido on time. You'll also want to ensure your doggo has up-to-date vaccinations and a microchip, as most kennels will require proof before letting your mutt stay. 

Pet parents looking for an alternative should check out some of the in-home Albany dog boarders on the Wag! app, with rates starting at $44 a night on average. (Pet Caregivers set their own rates, and you’ll receive a final price when you choose your boarder.) This budget-friendly overnight pet care option will give you more money to pamper your pup once you return home. 

Average Cost of Dog Sitting in Albany, CA

If your hound suffers from separation anxiety and would do better at home, consider booking a dog sitter in Albany. Albany pet sitters generally charge around $85 per night.

It's increasingly common for pet sitters to do flying visits rather than 24-hour care. What this means is you'll pay for a 30- or 60-minute visit. Your sitter will let your pup outside, feed them, play with them, and possibly give them a short walk. These services usually cost around $25 for 30 minutes.

It's worth noting some sitters only operate during certain hours, so choose a sitter that suits Tucker's schedule. You'll also want to make sure there aren't any hidden fees; otherwise, you could get a surprise on your bill when you return home. 

Dog sitting services on the Wag! platform start from as little as $39 per night with no hidden fees, so you can rest easy while you're away. And as many dog sitters are also trained walkers, your pup will get plenty of opportunities for their own adventure.
