“Dog walking is no job - it's a passion!”

Hi there! I have been walking dogs in Hoboken, NJ for over 3 years now, which I absolutely love! I have had an endearing love for dogs since 2001 when my parents finally gave into the many pleas of my two younger brothers and I to get us a dog. We were introduced to Tiki, a magnificent Black Labrador, who became the sister we never had.

I doubt you're ever gonna find anyone who loves dogs more than I do. I've lived with dogs my whole life, walked at least 100 of my friends dogs, read dog books, volunteered at the Humane society in Hawaii, donate to ASPCA monthly, and just love them like crazy. I'm used to walking between 35.000 to 45.000 steps a day and can't wait to start walking your little one.

I was raised on a farm in California, and I have been around dogs since I was a very young child. I have cared for dogs both professionally and for family, roommates and neighbors. I LOVE dogs, and I think they can sense when they meet a dog lover, which probably explains why they tend to love me as much as I love them. I look forward to spending time with your furry friend!

Dog Boarding in Union City

If you’re a pet parent in Union City, NJ, and you’re planning a trip away, we know you’d love to take your dog with you. Unfortunately, it’s not always possible for your pup to travel by your side, and you need to find somewhere safe and secure for them to stay while you’re away.

But that doesn’t mean you need to start searching for dog kennels near you just yet. If you book dog boarding or dog sitting in Union City with Wag!, you not only get affordable overnight care for your pup, but you also get the security of knowing that your pooch is staying in a loving home while you’re away. 

So if you’re searching for cost-effective and cozy care for your pup when you’re out of town, keep reading for a closer look at how to find dog boarding and dog sitting in Union City.

Average Cost of Dog Boarding in Union City, NJ

If you’re searching for a Union City dog boarding kennel where your pup can rest their weary head, there are plenty of options to choose from. Of course, if you want to find the best venue for your dog, you’ll need to compare those options carefully to see which kennel offers the best services, care, and accommodation for your furry friend.

Price will also be a factor in your decision. For basic doggy accommodation, rates start at around $45 a night. However, be sure to check the terms and conditions to find out exactly what this price covers, as some basic services (like giving your dog their medication) will attract an extra fee.

The cost can also rise quickly if you want to treat your pup to a stay in a luxury pet resort. These facilities spoil their four-legged guests with spacious suites, one-on-one playtime, and a whole lot of pampering, but you can pay $70 or more for this sort of VIP accommodation in some cases.

Meanwhile, dog boarders in Union City with Wag! offer rates starting at just $44 a night on average, so finding quality care for your dog when you’re away doesn’t have to break the bank.

Average Cost of Dog Sitting in Union City, NJ

If your dog would rather stay in your home while you’re gone, Union City dog sitters typically offer prices starting somewhere around the $60 mark, but it’s possible to pay $100 or more in some cases. 

It’s also important to check what this price actually includes. For example, some sitters will charge extra to take your pup for a walk, to take care of essential grooming tasks, and to administer your dog’s medication. Once you add these extra expenses to your tally, a simple sleepover for your pup can start to look like quite an expensive undertaking.

In comparison, dog sitters in Union City with Wag! offer rates starting at just $39 a night on average. No one said quality overnight care for your pup couldn’t be affordable too!
