I have loved dogs since I was eight years old, beginning with a Dachshund and a blind Pekingese. From there I went on to share my life several German Shepherds, a Rottweiler, an Airedale, and numerous mixed breeds. Much of my adult life has been spent in dog-related activities and jobs, including managing doggie daycare programs and training, both at PetSmart and privately. I love being around dogs and can’t wait to meet yours!

Hello there, my name is Alexa! For the entirety of my life there has been a dog by my side. I've grown up around dogs of all ages, breeds, and backgrounds, which taught me patience, respect, and love for all animals. After walking dogs for Granada Animal Outreach during my stay in Granada, Nicaragua, I realized the true strength and love these animals have within their hearts. Such an experience will forever stick with me. As an avid hiker I love the feeling of the fresh air and exercise, as I'll hope your dog does as well! A healthy dog is a content dog after all. I will make it my top priority to treat your dog with patience, kindness, and the care deserved to ensure your Wag! experience is everything you imagined it to be!

Dog Boarding in Lexington

The city of Lexington is the 28th biggest in the US. And in a population this big, you can be sure there are a lot of pets too. When Lexington families have to go away, many depend on local dog boarding kennels to watch their fur-babies. While kennels are undoubtedly convenient, they aren’t always the best choice for pet care.

Sure, kennels can be a fun experience for social dogs, but these facilities can be overwhelming for timid dogs. Many pet parents don’t realize there are alternatives to traditional boarding. Nowadays, dogs can get an equal quality of care in a home environment. In-home dog sitting and boarding is an excellent option when dealing with dogs with separation anxiety or fearfulness.

Wag! connects pet parents with local in-home dog sitters and boarders so you can rest easy knowing your pup is in good hands. Pet Caregivers with Wag! have a wide availability and can even transport your pup for an additional fee. What’s more, dog sitters with Wag! are happy to keep up with your dog’s normal walking routine and will even take them to local trails like the one at Jacobson Dog Park, with your permission, of course.

Average Cost of Dog Boarding in Lexington

Dog boarding in Lexington can cost a pretty penny, depending on where you look. Very basic dog boarding services will run you $60 a night for a small kennel with a bed and 3 potty breaks a day. If you want your dog to participate in playgroups or daycare, you can expect to pay upwards of $70 per night for Lexington dog boarding.

Luxury suites with deluxe bedding, one-on-one playtime, picture updates, and extra potty breaks will cost around $80 a night plus tax. The good news is, there are less expensive (and equally awesome) options for dog boarding in Lexington, Kentucky. 

Dog boarders on the Wag! platform set their own competitive prices, which average around $44 to $53 per night. Pet parents booking through Wag! will receive a price estimate when booking and a final price total once they select their caregiver. With Wag! dog boarding services, your dog will be able to receive all the lapdog luxuries they’re used to in the comfort of a pet lover’s home.

Average Cost of Dog Sitting in Lexington

Hiring a dog sitter is another option some pet parents look into when choosing overnight care for their pups. There are many benefits to choosing in-home dog sitters near you. It can make pets feel more comfortable in your absence, discourage burglars, and keep the house running as usual. So what is the average price for dog sitting in Lexington? Let’s take a look.

Some Lexington dog sitters charge $12 to $25 per hour on average for in-home care. These hourly rates mean you could be paying over $300 for a 24-hour stay. Luckily, there are some cheaper alternatives to hourly sitters. 

Sitters through Wag! charge an average of $39 per night to watch your canine in your home. Since pet sitters on Wag! choose their own prices, you’ll receive a price estimate when you are booking your pet’s sitting dates, and you’ll get a final total once you select your Pet Caregiver. Walks, medication administration, playtime, and cuddles won’t cost extra when you book through Wag!.

Dog Boarding in Lexington

Booking a dog boarder has never been easier than with the Wag! app. All you need to do is create an account, choose “Boarding” from the Overnight Care menu, select your dates, and answer a few questions about your pup. 

From there, you’ll get a price estimate, and the app will redirect you to a list of dog boarders near you. Take your time browsing the listings — we know there are a lot to choose from!

Many of the dog sitters and boarders on our network have experience with working with rescues, dogs with pre-existing conditions, and those with separation anxiety. Each profile details the candidate’s experience, ratings, and reviews so you can make the most informed decision “pawssible.”
