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!

Dog Boarding in Berkeley

You’d love to take your dog with you everywhere you go, but sometimes that simply isn’t possible. But if you live in Berkeley, CA, and you’re heading away on vacation without your fur-baby, dog kennels near you are far from the only option if you need to find a safe place for your pup to stay while you’re gone.

When you book dog sitting and dog boarding in Berkeley, you know your dog will receive personalized care in a welcoming home environment. This means your pup will have a relaxing and refreshing stay, and you’ll be able to leave your pet behind with complete peace of mind. And if your pup likes to stay active, the dog boarder or sitter you choose could also take them out to explore some of the best dog-friendly trails in the Berkeley area, such as the beautiful Stonewall Panoramic Trail.

So if you’re looking for affordable and reliable dog sitting or dog boarding in Berkeley, keep reading to take a closer look at the available options.

Average Cost of Dog Boarding in Berkeley, CA

Searching for a Berkeley dog boarding kennel? There are several options to choose from nearby, so it’s important to compare a range of options before deciding where your pooch will bed down for the night. It’s worth touring multiple facilities to make sure they’re clean and hygienic, that the staff are professional and attentive, and that your fur-baby will get all the care they need.

You’ll also need to consider dog boarding prices before making your final decision. For a basic kennel, you could expect to pay around $60 a night, while this cost will only increase if you want your furry friend to stay in a luxury pet suite.  

Also, make sure to check the terms and conditions before you make a booking. While some kennels offer all-inclusive rates, others don’t, so some of the basic day-to-day care your pup needs could end up costing you more.

In comparison, Berkeley dog boarders with Wag! can help you save money. Pet Caregivers on our platform offer average rates starting from $44 per night, which is sure to put a smile on your face and make a difference to your bank balance at the same time.

If your dog is a little intimidated or overwhelmed by a kennel environment, you might want to start comparing Berkeley dog sitters and the services they offer. Choosing a pet sitter can be a tricky task, however, as it’s vital that you find someone who can establish an excellent rapport with your fur-baby.

The cost of care will also be a factor. The average price for dog sitting in Berkeley often falls somewhere in the $75 to $90 per night range, but it’s once again important to check the fine print. Some sitters charge extra for services like transportation or taking your dog for a walk, so make sure you know what’s included in the fee before you make a booking.

But if you’re looking for affordable overnight pet care, don’t forget that dog sitters with Wag! offer average rates starting from just $39 a night. After all, no one said getting your dog quality care had to break the bank.
