“4.96 Star Rated - Top Walker - Thank You!”

Hello, I am Cindy and I love dogs. All kinds of dogs. I am retired and decided I want to walk other peoples dogs since both my lovers died this year of old age. I miss having a dog around very much but want to do some travelling right now. I would love the chance to spoil your dogs rotten just like I used to do mine. For the past 6 years, I have spent many hours a day helping shelter dogs get relocated out of Kentucky (where the animal protection laws are the worst in the nation).

“I love animals and I can't wait to meet your pet!”

Hi, I'm Kenzie! To me, pets count as additional family members. I have lived with cats and dogs for my entire life. I'm familiar with all sizes and breeds. I've worked with many families for years, house- and pet-sitting and then I started walking for Wag in March of 2018. I love getting to know the pets I work with, because I think that each and every animal has their own quirks and personality. Thank you for taking the time to get to know me. I can't wait to do the same with your furry friend!

Dog Boarding in Kansas City

Kansas City

is a terrific city for pet parents, with plenty of pet-friendly businesses and off-leash parks where your pooch can stretch their legs. While KC is a wonderful place to live, everyone needs to escape the city every once in a while. But what do you do if you can't bring your pupper along on your trip out of town?

While kennels are an option, you might find Fido is more comfortable with a Kansas City dog boarder and sitter. Browse the Wag! app to find in-home overnight dog sitters in Kansas City to keep your woofer as happy as can be while you're away.

As well as providing top-quality care, many caregivers offer dog walking services in Kansas City. With your permission, your pup can enjoy an out of town adventure at the Prairie Creek Greenway in Platte City. 

Thinking about booking a dog sitter or boarder in Kansas City? Here's everything you need to know. 

Average Cost of Dog Boarding in Kansas City, MO

Some Kansas City dog boarding facilities offer extravagant rooms for your dog. In the most luxurious accommodations, your pup will get a huge bed, extra attention from staff, and even a flatscreen television. However, these resorts aren't cheap and can set you back as much as $120 per night.

There are also basic kennels in KC that charge around $50 per night. While this is much less expensive than a luxury resort, your doggo may not get on well if they're scared of other dogs or suffer from separation anxiety.

Some of these facilities require pet parents to bring their dog along for pre-screening so staff can check their temperament to see if they're right for dog boarding. 

Before you bring your mutt along for their stay, ensure you check your chosen facility's terms and conditions. Most dog boarders require proof vaccinations against rabies and a variety of other diseases. 

Also, be on the lookout for hidden fees, as many dog boarders will charge you for one-on-one playtime, administering medication, extra food, and more.  

Alternatively, you can also book a dog boarder through Wag!. Dog boarders on the Wag! platform will care for your pup at their home. And with rates starting at $39 per night, you'll have more cash to splash while on vacation.

Average Cost of Dog Sitting in Kansas City, MO

If your fur-baby would prefer to stay home, consider booking a Kansas City dog sitter. The majority of dog sitting agencies in Kansas City don't offer overnight dog sitting. Instead, they'll come to your house a few times a day to walk and feed your pupper. These visits generally last around 45 minutes and cost between $20 and $30.

A few dog sitters in Kansas City do provide overnight care for canines and charge around $60 a night. Before you book, check for hidden fees — some sitters will charge you for walks and travel. You'll also be charged more during holiday periods. 

Many sitters also have specific working hours and won't be around all day. You may need to make other arrangements if your pupper needs medication at a certain time or an additional walk.

Dog sitting services through Wag! start at $39, and there are no hidden fees involved; everything you'll pay is visible upfront. This makes dog sitters on the Wag! platform a great alternative to traditional dog sitting services in Kansas City.
