“Professional, Caring, and I take Cute Pet Photos”

Hi my name is Laura. I’m a registered nurse by profession but animals hold a special place in my heart. I started riding horses when I was 5 years old and rode for 10 years, have owned and cared for a wide variety of pets both big and small (currently a bunny mamma to two little lion heads) and I have volunteer experience working in an animal hospital. I'm excited to say that I have been working with Wag! for the past 4 years and cannot wait to meet your pup!

Dog Boarding in Westminster

The city of Westminster, CA, is a fantastic place to raise a pet family, but every doting pet parent sometimes needs a break from the norm. If you're planning a trip out of town but can't bring Fido along, you may need to consider alternative care options for them. But before you start looking into dog kennels near you, let's explore some other options for overnight pet care in the city.

Overnight dog sitting with Wag! is a "furrific" alternative for dogs who aren't eligible for kennel boarding, whether due to temperament, health conditions, or behavioral issues. Wag! believes that in-home care is the best choice for pups since being in new settings is often stressful for dogs. Local dog sitters with Wag! will watch your pooch in your own home, which eliminates stress and will allow your pup all the creature comforts they’re used to. Dog boarders with Wag! are also different from your traditional dog boarder, welcoming pups into their own homes rather than caring for them in a busy kennel setting.  

Many of the dog boarders and sitters on the Wag! platform double as dog walkers and will jump at the chance to take your woofer for an on-leash outing on nearby trails, like Santa Ana River Trail — with your permission, of course.  


Average Cost of Dog Boarding in Westminster, CA 

Most dog boarders in the Westminster area don't list their pricing on their websites, which can be frustrating for pet parents who are in a hurry to find pet care. Rather than listing prices, they request you call for a consultation and price quote. Luckily, we've done some research for you to find the average cost of dog boarding in Westminster, CA.

Dog boarding prices in Westminster range from $60 to $99 per night, depending on the facility and accommodations. The price for basic kennel stays includes a kennel to sleep in, potty breaks, mealtimes, and little else — these are on the lower end of the aforementioned price range.

More elaborate kennel setups can cost upwards of $100 but have amenities such as aromatherapy, nightly belly rubs, dog TV, and webcam access. While these swanky suites are no doubt lavish, they can take quite a toll on your wallet.

Weekend stays, medication administration, and special diets can all add to your check-out slip — but that’s not all. Did you know not having your dog spayed or neutered can affect the price of boarding them? Yep! Unaltered dogs cost an average $10 more a night to board in the Westminster area.

What if we told you you could receive the same level of one-on-one care that pets receive in a premium kennel for a fraction of the price? Westminster dog boarding services on the Wag! app start at $44 a night on average, depending on the Pet Caregiver you choose. What's more, Pet Caregivers through Wag! will never increase their set prices for extra playtime, cuddles, treats, or administering medications. The only extra charge you'll ever encounter with Wag! is a transportation fee, and that's only if your pooch needs to be picked up or dropped off.


Average Cost of Dog Sitting in Westminster, CA

If your dog has separation anxiety, doesn't like the company of other animals, or just prefers being at home, an in-home dog sitter could be the answer to your pet care conundrum. Unfortunately, dog sitters can be even more expensive than dog kennels since they often charge by the hour rather than by the day.

The average price for in-home dog sitting in Westminster, CA, is around $15 to $30 an hour. While these prices might be manageable for a date night, high hourly rates can put a damper on your vacation budget if you're going out of town for several days.

Luckily, the Wag! network has a host of in-home dog sitters near you who charge per night rather than hourly. Dog sitters with Wag! set their own prices, starting at $39 a night on average. When booking a local dog sitter through the Wag! app, you'll receive an initial price estimate and final pricing once you select your Pet Caregiver.

Before an applicant can become a Pet Caregiver with Wag!, they have to undergo a careful vetting process that involves a background check, references, and a test on the best practices of pet care.
