Dog Boarding in Geneva

Going on holiday with our hounds is one of life's best experiences. Unfortunately, though, we can't take our dogs along for every out-of-town adventure. Whether you're traveling to Chicago for a conference or further afield for a much-need getaway, there's no need to book a dog kennel near you just yet. Wag! offers budget-friendly pet care that will keep Tucker's tail wagging while you're gone.

The Pet Caregivers on our platform come from a diverse range of backgrounds in pet care, but they all have one thing in common: they love dogs! Some are lifelong pet parents, while others volunteer with local shelters or work as veterinary technicians. Many also offer dog walking services in Geneva and greater Chicago, which means your sitter or boarder can take Sparky for a stroll at a local trail. (With your permission, of course.) How does dog sitting and boarding on the Wag! app work? Keep reading to find out!

Average Cost of Dog Boarding in Geneva, IL

How much does dog boarding cost in Geneva, IL? That depends on the type of accommodation you book and when you book it. Basic kennels start at $50 per night. This no-frills option provides the essentials, but not a whole lot else. Be aware that some facilities charge extra for walks, playtime, medication, food, and treats. Additionally, some boarding kennels advise pet parents not to bring their pups' favorite toys and blankets in case they're lost or damaged during playtime.

Pet resorts are an alternative to busy kennel environments. These swanky suites start at $60 per night and come complete with webcam access, plush bedding, and heaps of off-leash playtime. You may need to pay a deposit to secure your dog's spot in advance. Additional fees may also apply for holiday stays and late drop-off or pickup.

If you're researching overnight pet care facilities in Geneva, be sure to read the fine print. You may be required to attend a meet-and-greet well in advance of your trip. If your dog doesn't play well with others or hasn't yet mastered their off-leash skills, they may be denied entry. Although this safety measure keeps pups and people safe, it can be inconvenient for pet parents of puppies or dogs with separation anxiety. Additionally, certain facilities have limited operating hours — not ideal for pet parents arriving home on a late flight.

Fortunately, there's a convenient, affordable alternative to Geneva dog boarding facilities. Pet Caregivers on the Wag! app take the hassle out of finding overnight pet care. Average boarding rates start at just $44 per night, giving you more cash to splash on your vacation.

Average Cost of Dog Sitting in Geneva, IL

Many Geneva dog sitters offer drop-in visits instead of overnight stays. Your sitter will stop by to feed your dog, provide fresh water, and give them a quick walk. With average rates starting at $25 per half-hour, these drop-in visits can be convenient for well-trained dogs. But pups with separation anxiety or serious medical conditions may need more supervision.

Considering overnight dog sitting with a local facility? You can expect to pay $75 per night on average. Note that some sitting facilities operate on a first-come, first-served basis. It's a good idea to book your dog sitter well in advance to avoid disappointment. Be sure to check which payment methods are accepted — not all dog sitters accept debit or credit cards.

Need round-the-clock pet care that won't cost a paw and a tail? Booking an impromptu getaway and looking for a dog sitter last-minute? Geneva dog sitters on the Wag! app have got you and Fifi covered. And with average rates starting as low as $39 per night, you can save up to 50% on dog boarding. Talk about a doggone good deal!
