“I can’t wait to meet your dog!”

When I got my first dog I realized this is what I'm made for! I am enamored with dogs' loyal, loving, and playful dispositions. Walks are not only my pup's favorite part of the day, but mine as well! Can I help your dog get some play (sniff, exercise) time outside on the days when you can't?

Hello my name is Analinda. I have had my own Dog named Bella for over 16years, so I understand the importance of having a Dog Walker that is trustworthy, respectful, compassionate and patient. I am always willing to travel and explore new places with your pet, or we can stick to their familiar spots. Every Dog is different so it is extremely important for me to accommodate your pet accordingly. Please, always feel free to give me any information about your pet that I may need to know. I am very open to learning about your pet so I can give them the best experience a Dog Walker can. I'm excited and I consider this to be a privilege to be apart of getting your Dog out and active.

Dog Boarding in Colorado Springs

Beautiful Colorado Springs is a dog lover’s paradise. This cozy mountain town is home to a whopping 61,000 dogs and was dubbed one of the most pet-friendly places in America. But what are all these pet families to do when hauling their hound around isn’t an option?

Dog kennels are the primary form of pet care that parents turn to, but these aren’t always the best choice. This environment can be intimidating for some pups with all the unfamiliar sounds, smells, and dogs. 

Dog sitting services are rapidly growing in popularity and for good reason! Dog sitters offer a personalized care plan, enable pups to stay in their own homes, and can handle simple household tasks like bringing in the mail. A great dog sitter can stave off behavioral issues and household destruction by engaging your pup and keeping them out of trouble. The constant companionship an in-home sitter offers often helps keep the doggy blues at bay, too. 

Another advantage of a dog sitter is, with parental permission, they can take Scrappy for some on-leash escapades around town. The trails at Red Rock Canyon Open Space are always a hit with the four-legged locals! 

Average Cost of Dog Boarding in Colorado Springs, CO 

Dog boarding in Colorado Springs isn’t exactly posh. Local kennels typically entail a small plexiglass or wire enclosure, a dog bed, a doggy door that leads to the outside run, and a couple of stainless steel bowls. 

The base price for this type of care starts around $42 per night, though many Colorado Springs dog boarders charge extra for dogs under 7 months old. Most services at these facilities are a la carte, so expect to pay extra if your dog wants to participate in playgroups, go for walks, or play fetch with the staff.  

Wag! offers a different outlook on dog boarding services, with no kennels, enclosures, or waiting lists. Local dog boarders in the Wag! caregiver network will dote on your dog in their own home and give them all the attention they crave! Overnight services through Wag! are affordable, starting at just $39 a night. Can’t make it to the boarder’s location? That’s fine, too. Local dog boarders on the Wag! platform can pick up your pooch for only $15 more.

Average Cost of Dog Sitting in Colorado Springs, CO

Every pet parent knows that home is where your dog is! But paying someone to keep your dog on their home turf can be quite pricey in this neck of the woods.

The average starting rate for self-employed sitters is about $13.25 an hour, or $159 for 12 hours. Professional Colorado Springs dog sitting services offer package rates, but you won’t find any under $84 for a 10-hour stay. A drop-in sitter will cost you $20 to $35 per visit to take your pup outside, dole out kibble, and refill their water. 

If you do choose to go one of these routes, make sure you read the terms and conditions. These rates can skyrocket when you start requesting what they consider “add-on” services like walks, medication administration, and transportation.

Local dog sitters on the Wag! platform offer the lowest prices in town and will take care of Roxie’s every need for rates starting at $39 per night. Wag! carefully screens each caregiver to ensure the highest level of care and the safest environment possible for your pupper. Plus, Wag! Chat allows you to connect with your sitter any time of the day or night to check up on your fur-baby! 

Dog Boarding in Colorado Springs, CO

Sourcing a superior sitter is a snap with the Wag! app. All you have to do is create an account, click “Boarding” under the “Overnight Care” icon, and tell us a little about Buddy. After a short questionnaire, you’ll gain access to the profiles of local dog boarders. 

Dog boarders on the Wag! network boast a wide assortment of knowledge and experience in the pet care field. Some specialize in high-energy breeds, whereas others are experienced in giving insulin and caring for epileptic dogs. You won’t have to look far to find a caregiver with skills relevant to your pup’s needs, whatever those might be!   

We know you’ll want to hear all about Trixie’s howling good times — that’s why created Wag! Chat so parents can stay in touch and receive pictures from the sitter while they’re away. You can also use this feature before your pup’s sitting appointment to make sure the sitter is on the same page about Fifi’s care.

If you’re looking for top-notch care for your Newfie, you’ve come to the right place. All you need to do is download the Wag! app, register for an account, and click “Overnight Care”, then “Sitting”. You’ll fill out a brief survey about Scooby and their needs, and then you’ll be directed to a list of in-home dog sitters near you! 

Caregivers on our platform devote much of their spare time and energy to the greater good, volunteering at animal shelters, and fostering rescues. 

Building rapport with a trustworthy sitter is crucial, so we encourage pet parents to use Wag! Chat to discuss any questions or concerns they have with their sitter before the appointment. Keeping pups safe and putting their parents at ease is our top priority!
