I have always been an animal lover and over the years I have owned many different pets. I currently have one 6 year old guinea pig named Riza Lin, an 11 month old kitten named Sammy and also an 11 month old Jack Russell/Retriever Mix named Sophie. When I was in High School I use to volunteer at The Humane Society of West Michigan. I worked mostly with the cats but did some dog walking. I had to leave there but have always wanted to go back and finish my dog walking. I have also walked family and friends dogs as well and I enjoy anytime I can spend with animals. My family sometimes calls me the animal whisperer because of the way animals respond to me. Also my job keeps me quite active and I am no stranger to the cold or warm weather changes of Michigan. I would love a chance to meet your furbabies and spend some time with them.

Dog Boarding in Grand Rapids

We all wish we could keep our dogs by our side at all times, but sometimes, that’s just not possible. So if you live in Grand Rapids, MI, and you’re heading out of town for work or a vacation, you’ll need to find somewhere safe and comfortable for your pup to stay while you’re gone.

But that doesn’t mean it’s time to start searching for dog kennels near you. In fact, with dog boarding and dog sitting in Grand Rapids available through Wag!, there’s a more convenient and often more affordable choice of overnight care for your dog. Best of all, your pup gets the security and peace of mind that comes with staying in a welcoming home environment.

So if you’re searching for overnight care for your dog, let’s take a closer look at how to find dog sitting and dog boarding in Grand Rapids. 

Average Cost of Dog Boarding in Grand Rapids, MI

There’s a lot to consider when comparing Grand Rapids dog boarding options. Not only do you need to find a facility that’s clean, hygienic, and safe, but it’s also essential to know that your dog will receive a high standard of care. With this in mind, it’s worth shopping around to find a facility that ticks all the right boxes.

And then there’s the matter of cost. Many Grand Rapids dog boarding services charge approximately $50 a night for basic accommodation, but this price doesn’t always include all essential services. If your pup needs to be given medication, for example, or if you want to organize one-on-one play sessions for them, you can often expect to pay extra.

Of course, if you’d prefer for your pooch to stay in the lap of luxury, you might want to book them into a VIP suite. These fancy facilities offer goodies like in-room dining, extra living space, and extravagant play areas for pups, but they only drive the price per night even higher.

In comparison, dog boarders in Grand Rapids with Wag! offer rates starting from $44 a night on average. Now there’s a price that should make you (and your dog) very happy indeed.

If your dog feels more comfortable staying at home rather than in an unfamiliar environment, you’ll need to start comparing Grand Rapids dog sitting options. Finding someone you can trust to look after your fur-baby and home is not a decision you can rush, so it’s worth doing plenty of research before you book a sleepover.

You can generally expect to pay $60 to $80 per night for in-home pet sitting in Grand Rapids. However, be sure to check the fine print to find out what’s included in this price tag, as some services (such as dog walking and administering medication) may incur an extra fee. 

Meanwhile, dog sitters in Grand Rapids with Wag! offer rates from as low as $39 a night, providing an affordable and stress-free alternative for pet parents.

Dog Sitting in Grand Rapids, MI

Some dogs don’t cope well with unfamiliar environments, especially if they’re already prone to separation anxiety when their humans aren’t around. So if you’d like your dog to enjoy a home-ground advantage, start searching for in-home dog sitters near you today. 

Start by downloading the Wag! app, then selecting “Sitting” from the range of Overnight Care services. Once you’ve entered your desired pet sitting dates, you’ll be able to browse the profiles of Grand Rapids dog sitters who are ready and willing to look after your pooch while you’re away. 

Take some time to find the ideal person to care for your pup. You’ll need to check the background and experience of a range of sitters, plus see what other pet parents have had to say about their pet sitting skills. And when you’ve found the person who you think has what it takes to give your pup the best possible care while you’re gone, hit them up on Wag! chat to discuss the finer details.

When you head away, you can rest easy knowing your pup is in safe hands, and you’ll be kept up to date with regular photo and video messages. If your pooch is energetic, the sitter can even take them out for a walk to explore some of the city’s best dog walking spots.
