“Must love dogs”

Hi my name is Kris. I’m a NYS retiree looking to fill my free time doing something I love. Someone once said they get along with dogs better than some people. I totally agree, if my dogs don’t like you they may notice something I’ve missed. I’ve owned all kinds of dogs, large and small. Can’t imagine life without multiple dogs. At one time I had 5-a rottie, mastiff, golden retriever and two pugs. If you let me walk your dog you can rest assured he/she will be taken care of as I would my own!

Dog Boarding in Syracuse

Live in Syracuse, NY, and thinking of heading away for a while? In a perfect world, there’d be nothing to stop you taking your dog with you everywhere you go. In reality, sometimes it’s just not possible for your pup to come with you on every trip you take.

That means you need to find somewhere safe and comfortable for your dog to stay while you’re gone — but that doesn’t mean it’s time to start searching for dog kennels near you just yet. Overnight care with Wag! offers an affordable and convenient option when you need someone to look after your pup. It ensures that your pooch gets to stay in a loving home environment, giving you peace of mind that your fur-baby will be getting the best possible care until you return.

Now that should put a wag in your dog’s tail and a smile on your face! Keep reading to find out more about booking dog sitting and dog boarding in Syracuse. 

Average Cost of Dog Boarding in Syracuse, NY

If you’re searching around for the right Syracuse dog boarding kennel for your pup, you’ll find plenty of options to choose from. Some specialize in offering basic but comfortable accommodation for pets, providing all the essentials your dog needs for an overnight stay. Others take things up a notch with a host of luxury features, like huge play areas, doggy swimming pools, and opulent VIP suites.

If you’re just looking for basic Syracuse dog boarding accommodation, prices start at around $40 a night. However, it’s important to check the fine print to find out exactly what’s included in this cost. Some services, such as one-on-one playtime for your pet or administering your dog’s medication, often cost extra. As a result, the price of staying in a kennel for a few nights can quickly skyrocket.

Compare that to booking local dog boarders with Wag!. The experienced pet caregivers on our platform offer rates as low as just $44 on average, and there’s no need to worry about hidden fees inflating the total cost. You’ll receive a final price when you choose a pet caregiver, and you’ll never pay extra for medication or cuddles.

Dog Boarding in Syracuse, NY

If you’d like to find dog boarders in Syracuse with Wag!, the process is simple and straightforward. Once you’ve downloaded the Wag! app, created an account, and provided some details about your pooch, you can select “Boarding” from the range of Overnight Care services. Once you enter your travel dates, you’ll be able to browse the profiles of Syracuse dog boarders.

Take a look at a range of profiles to see what each pet caregiver has to offer:

  • What’s their background with dogs? 

  • How much experience do they have? 

  • Will their personality be a good match for your dog?

Once you’ve found your pup’s “pawfect” match, contact them using the chat feature to discuss all of your dog’s care requirements. Then, when the time comes for you to head away, your pooch will get to stay with a loving pet parent in their home.

And while your pup is having a grand old time, the pet caregiver will send you regular photo and video updates. You can also contact the caregiver at any time through the app’s chat feature if you have any questions or concerns, but rest assured that your pup will love their home away from home.

Don’t believe us? Maybe the fact that 95% of all boarding sessions with Wag! lead to a glowing 5-star review will convince you.

Dog Sitting in Syracuse, NY

Some dogs prefer to stay at home rather than in an unfamiliar environment. This gives them a sense of comfort that can be a big help to overcome problems like separation anxiety, and generally help them stay more settled while you’re gone.

If that’s the case for your pup, booking dog sitting in Syracuse with Wag! is a piece of cake.  Here’s what you need to do. Select “Sitting” from the Overnight Care section of the Wag! app, then select your desired sleepover date. You’ll be shown the profiles of suitable in-home dog sitters near you — take the time to browse them carefully so you can find someone who’s got what it takes to look after your pup.

Then when you head out of town, your dog gets the security and freedom of being able to stay at home. The pet caregiver you choose can keep you updated as to what your pooch is up to, and you can get in touch with them at any time via the app.

So if you want your fur-baby to be treated like a king or queen while you’re away, Wag! can help. Book a Syracuse dog sitting session today and enjoy the peace of mind that comes with knowing your dog is in safe paws.
