I just moved to San Diego from Connecticut, and was looking for for a good way to meet new dogs and explore the area. I’ve had 8 dogs throughout my life, from Rottweiler to Golden Retriever to Shih Tzu, and I used to volunteer at an animal shelter in Connecticut. I’ve been walking dogs for as long as I have been walking myself, and they are by far my favorite creatures!

Hi. I am originally from Texas but have lived in La Jolla for 18 years. My love for animals started at a very young age, as I grew up around horses, cows, goats and plenty of dogs. I have had Great Danes, Beauviers, Labs, German Shepherds, etc. Presently, I have a Havanese, a Maltipoo and a Schnauzer. I don't have kids so my pups are my world and I spoil them rotten. God gave me a special ability to be able to read dogs and make them feel comfortable and at ease. I was a personal trainer and avid runner most of my life, so I really enjoy running, walking and playing with all dogs!

Dog Boarding in Solana Beach

A beach community just 30 minutes from San Diego, Solana Beach is the perfect spot for surfing and enjoying art galleries and furbulous restaurants. While you won’t want to leave this idyllic setting, trips for work or fun often don’t include your pupster, so it’s important to consider all options for pet care while you’re gone. 


Most people first think of a traditional overnight kennel, but these can be noisy and expensive, and can cause more anxiety for your pupster. Solana Beach, CA dog boarding alleviates some of that anxiety by providing one-on-one interactions with a Pet Caregiver in a warm home setting. And since many local dog sitters and boarders are also dog walkers in Solana Beach, your pup can even take a stroll on a nearby trail with your permission. Fido will be tail-wagging all the way!


Do you want to explore overnight dog boarding and dog sitting in Solana Beach, CA? Let’s take a look at the average cost of overnight care.


Average Cost of Dog Boarding in Solana Beach, CA

Solana Beach contains several types of dog boarders, from luxury canine resorts to basic bare-bone dog kennels near you that only offer 2 potty breaks, meals and water. These dog boarding services range from $48-$69 a night, but this is only the base cost. You’ll have to pay more for medication administration, extra walks, or playtime. Luxury boarding offers more amenities with additional costs ranging $30 to $40. And boarding on holidays usually costs more, too. 


For a more comfortable experience, dog boarders with Wag! can take care of your pup in their own home, allowing Fido to be in a calmer setting that can help prevent or reduce their anxiety. These Pet Caregivers have a variety of dog care backgrounds, and since many have puppers of their own, they’ll care for your dog with compassion and experience. And since the cost of boarding starts at only $44 a night with Wag!, you’ll also be saving money too!


Average Cost of Dog Sitting in Solana Beach, CA

Regardless of how comfortable Solana Beach dog boarders can make your pup in their home, your dog may prefer to be surrounded by familiar objects and smells. Dog sitters who will come to your home for overnight visits are a great choice. The average prices for dog sitting are typically more expensive than boarding, costing around $80 per night. 


There may also be extra charges for certain breeds, physical needs, or age, so it’s important to check those additional costs. Other extra expenses associated with in-home dog sitters near you can include holiday fees too. Dog sitters may even offer daily scheduled visits with an opportunity to go out, be fed, and do a bit of snuggling and playing that can range between $35 and $50 an hour.


Be sure to check out the Solana Beach dog sitters with Wag! and choose the one that best meets your needs and Fido’s. Wag! Chat is the “pawrfect” way to communicate with your sitter and ask questions, and they’ll provide updates on how your pup is doing, including photos and videos.
