“Time for a walk!”
My name is Brianna, and I adore animals. I have experience with: rabbits, hamsters, ferrets, cats, and dogs. I get along with large dogs: huskies, pit bulls, and great danes. I love them in all shapes and sizes! Currently, I have two small dogs, three cats, one kitten, and a sassy fish named Jai. One of my cats has a heart problem, so I must administer her medicine daily. Let me know if your critter has any special needs. Please contact me if you have any questions!

Rather than worrying about your fur-baby going to a nearby kennel, why not consider one of the dog sitters and boarders in your area?
Overnight caregivers with Wag! offer an affordable alternative to traditional kennels, and you can sleep soundly knowing your pup is comfortable in a home environment. Plus, with your permission, your chosen caregiver can take your pup for an on-leash walk to get some much-needed exercise.
Read on to find out more about the average cost of dog boarding and sitting, as well as the best overnight care options in Salem.
While looking at Salem dog boarding facilities, you'll come across several kennels across the metro area. Most offer basic kennels, which cost around $25 per night.
While this seems an inexpensive option, most kennels charge extra fees depending on your dog's size and needs. For example, many charge extra for applying medication, one-on-one playtime, and additional meals. Make sure you get a full breakdown of expenses so you don't get a surprisingly high bill when you return home.
Some kennels also provide luxury accommodation, which generally costs around $45 per night. Bonuses include a larger, quieter room and climate control to ensure your pup is comfy year-round. Again, extra charges may apply for medication, playtime, and walks.
If you're looking for an alternative, consider booking a Salem dog boarder through Wag!. An affordable choice, these boarders charge an average of $44 to $53 per night, and your pup will be much happier cuddled up in a home environment.

These flying visits usually last around 30 minutes and include feedings, a potty break, and maybe a short walk. These services are about $17 per visit, but can be more expensive over the holidays.
