“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 Brooklyn

The bustling city of Brooklyn, NY, has its fair share of dog lovers. While big-city life is exciting, sometimes, pet parents need to get out of town for some relaxation. Many pet parents rely on local dog kennels for pet care while they're away, but this setup isn't for every pup. Most dog boarding kennels have strict rules about the dogs they will accept.

Puppies, intact males, and dogs behind on their shots may be turned away. Other dogs might get into the boarding program but feel uncomfortable in the kennel setting. Dogs fearful of crates or other animals probably won't do well in a boarding kennel. For these dogs, you may need to consider other options. 

In-home pet care is ideal for most dogs. After all, there’s no place like home. Local dog sitters like the ones with Wag! can help your dog feel more comfortable by staying in their usual setting and sticking to their normal schedule. In-home pet care can curb separation anxiety and give your pet the one-on-one attention they crave. So, where can you go to find in-home dog sitters near you? Wag! is just the place.

The Wag! app can put you in touch with trustworthy local dog sitters who will care for your fur-baby in your home. You can enjoy your vacay knowing your pup is getting all the pampering they're used to. Many local dog sitters on Wag! are also dog walkers and would be happy to accompany your pup on an on-leash adventure.

Average Cost of Dog Boarding in Brooklyn

There’s no shortage of local dog boarders in Brooklyn, but dog boarding services in this area are quite pricey. A basic stay in one of Brooklyn's many dog boarding kennels starts around $62 a night and includes a dog bed, kennel cage, food, and potty breaks. 

There are some things to be aware of when browsing Brooklyn dog boarders. Most dog boarding kennels in Brooklyn require that dogs pass a temperament test before admission into the program. Be sure to pay attention to the fine print too. Some boarding kennels charge extra for dogs to participate in playgroups or for weekend stays.

Wag! does dog boarding differently. Dog boarders through Wag! care for pups in their own home to make sure dogs feel as comfortable as "pawssible." Brooklyn dog boarders through Wag! set their own prices, which average between $44 and $53 per night. Dog boarders on the Wag! app will even pick up your pooch for an additional fee if transportation is necessary. 

Average Cost of Dog Sitting in Brooklyn

Some pet parents prefer that their dog stay at home while they're out of town, and rightfully so. After all, dogs tend to do better in a familiar setting. Unfortunately, dog sitters in Brooklyn can cost even more than the dog boarding kennels. The average price for dog sitting in Brooklyn is between $15 and $20 per hour, but you can expect to pay more for sitting appointments on weekends or holidays. 

Rather than having hourly rates, Brooklyn dog sitters through Wag! charge a flat rate for overnight sitting appointments. Local sitters on the Wag! app set their own pricing starting at just $39 per night. Unlike some dog sitting services, Wag! will never slap on hidden fees for holiday stays or specialized care. 

Dog Boarding in Brooklyn

Make your pup's day by booking a dog boarder through Wag!. Scheduling an appointment through the Wag! app is a piece of cake. The app will guide you through the registration process. All you have to do is enter your pup's info, preferences, and boarding dates, then the app will open a listing of dog boarders near you. Once you select your caregiver, you'll enter your payment info to seal the deal. That's it!

While browsing local dog boarders, consider their specialties. Each listing includes the sitter's strong points to help pet parents find their perfect Pet Caregiver. For instance, if you have a dog who is still leash training, you might pick a caregiver who specializes in caring for dogs who pull. Or, if you have an older pooch, you might want to select a local border with experience giving meds and caring for senior pups. 

Dog Sitting in Brooklyn

Would your pup rather sleep in their own bed while you're out of town? If so, we can help! The Wag! app streamlines the sitter booking process and can help you find trustworthy pet care in mere minutes. 

All you need to do is select "dog sitting" from the overnight care menu and answer a few questions. After that, we'll match you with carefully vetted local dog sitters who would love to take care of your pet for a day or a week. 

The Wag! chat feature will help you keep in touch with your pooch while you're away. Use it to communicate with your sitter and receive pictures of your pup's staycay adventures. You can even use this feature before the pet sitting appointment to detail your dog's needs and ask any questions you may have. 

Don't roll the dice on a new dog sitting or boarding agency — choose the leading name in in-home pet care. Let Wag! help you find reliable and affordable sitters and boarders who will put your mind at ease.
