www.Instagram.com/ATLPetLover to view interactions. I have always loved animals as a child and would often bring stray dogs home and care for them; as I was an outcast kid/teen with little to no friends. Ever since I can remember I have always had some type of animal. From dogs, birds, crawfish, hamsters, rabbits, geico, and a few turtles; even camels. My recent experience with 2 displaced cats (Bob)-Tabby & (Cali)-Calico is what changed my entire life and connection with animals.

I'm Karen and I have had dogs as pets throughout my life. One of my favorite activities is dog walking, both my own dog and the dogs of my friends. There is something very satisfying to see a dog's tail wagging with enjoyment as they get ready for their walk and then continue wagging their tail as they complete their walk!

“Dedicated,vigilant walker with attention to detail”

Hi! My name is Luis and I just love dogs! They always bring a big smile to my face. I've been a walker for 2 years. I grew up with a cocker spaniel named Lulu and we always had other pets like fish, birds, rabbits, etc, so I know how important it is to care of our animal family members to keep them happy and healthy. I grew up in Atlanta, so I am very familiar with different neighborhoods in town and best routes to take. I love the outdoors, and can't wait to spend some time with your cute pup!

Dog Boarding in Atlanta

Heading out of town for a while and need someone to look after your fur-baby while you’re gone? You could drop them off at a boarding kennel before going away, but kennel life isn’t the perfect fit for every dog. If you’d rather your pup stayed in a loving and comfortable home environment, you might want to search for dog boarders and dog sitters in Atlanta with Wag!.

Not only is it affordable, but in-home care also provides you with the peace of mind of knowing that your dog gets to stay in a safe and welcoming space. Even better, pet caregivers with Wag! can also treat your dog to “pawsome” outdoor adventures on some of Atlanta’s best dog-friendly trails. For example, your pooch will love exploring the South Fork Conservancy trail system or tackling the BeltLine West End Trail.

Searching for reliable dog sitting or dog boarding near you? Let’s take a closer look at the cost of overnight doggy accommodation in Atlanta, GA.

Average Cost of Dog Boarding in Atlanta, GA

You’re spoiled for choice when searching for an Atlanta dog boarding option for your pup. Many of those establishments offer facilities fit for a four-legged king (or queen), including luxury suites, flat-screen TVs broadcasting pet-friendly programs, and even doggy swimming pools.

If you’re just looking for a basic dog kennel, you can expect to pay around $45 per night. But if your pup has a taste for the finer things in life, the cost is $60 to $70 per night in some cases and much higher in others. 

It’s also important to check the fine print to make sure you know exactly what’s included as part of dog boarding services in Atlanta. For example, while some dog kennels near you may offer a low overnight rate, essential services (such as food, a leash walk, cuddles, or an extra play session) may come at an additional cost.

Meanwhile, dog boarders in Atlanta with Wag! offer rates starting from just $39 a night. That includes feeding, playtime, and potty breaks for your pup, plus regular video, photo, and message updates for you throughout the day. What’s not to love?

Average Cost of Dog Sitting in Atlanta, GA

How much can you expect to pay for Atlanta dog sitting? Costs vary based on the sitter you choose and whether you book any extra services for your pup.

As a general guide, many dog sitters in Atlanta charge between $70 and $100 per night of in-home pet care. Once again, it’s essential to read the fine print to find out exactly what is and isn’t included in this cost. For example, does this include a walk and a play session for your fur-baby? If they need to be given any medication, will this cost extra? Will you have to pay more to cover the sitter’s travel costs?

The total cost can quickly add up, so check all the terms and conditions before booking an Atlanta dog sitter.

Dog Boarding in Atlanta, GA

If you want your pup to receive the best possible care while you’re away, start comparing dog boarders in Atlanta, GA with Wag!.

Booking a boarder with Wag! means your dog gets to stay in a comfortable and welcoming home environment. This is great news for dogs who are intimidated by boarding kennels and should help keep separation anxiety issues at bay. Boarders also boast experience in a diverse range of pet care fields, so they’re able to care for dogs of all ages and breeds.

How it works is simple. The first step is to download the Wag! app, create an account, and provide some basic information about your dog. Then select “Boarding” from the Overnight Care section, enter your travel dates, and add transportation costs if needed.

You’ll then be shown a list of Atlanta dog boarders near you. Browse their profiles to find out what sort of experience they have, what they love about caring for pets, and read reviews from other pet parents. When you find the “pawfect” person, connect using the in-app chat feature to discuss your dog’s needs while you’re away.

After that, it’s time to say a tearful goodbye to your precious pup and hit the road. But don’t worry — your dog will get to stay in the pet caregiver’s safe and loving home until you get back. 

Dog boarders in Atlanta on the Wag! platform care for your dog like their own, and will share pics and videos of your pup enjoying themselves while you’re gone. You can also message the pet caregiver at any time if you want to check on your fur-baby.

It’s stress-free, reliable, and affordable, which is probably why 95% of all boarding bookings lead to a 5-star review.

Dog Sitting in Atlanta, GA

Maybe your dog would be better off if they got to stay at home while you’re away? If that’s the case, booking reliable dog sitters in Atlanta is a walk in the park — just select “Sitting” in the Overnight Care section to start planning your pup’s ideal “staycation”.

Once again, it’s important to compare in-home dog sitters near you to find one that’s a good fit for your pup. Look for someone who will be a “pawfect” match for your dog’s personality, then use Wag! Chat to discuss all of your pup’s special care requirements.

When you choose an Atlanta dog sitter with Wag!, you give your pup the confidence and security of staying in their own home. This reduces disruptions to their routine and will help keep the smile on their face while you’re gone.
