Hi, My name is Erin! I am a runner, hiker, yogi and outdoor lover. I am in the process of getting certified as a yoga instructor. Last April I attempted to THRU hike the Appalachian trail from Georgia to Maine. I made it over halfway before I got injured in Pennsylvania. I was working for Wag before my hike and enjoyed it so much and walked a ton of dogs and it really helped prepare me. It is so uplifting and rewarding spending time outside with your pups!

Hello. I have been a pet owner for almost all my life. I have had my own little petsitting/dog business for the past several years. This felt like a good way to add to that.

Dog Boarding in Cincinnati

Pet parents in Cincinnati might be unsure what to do with their canine compadre when they're heading out of town. While sending your doggo to a kennel is one option, you can also consider alternatives such as dog boarding and sitting. 

Cincinnati dog boarders and sitters will look after your pupper in a home environment to reduce stress and ensure they're comfortable. Many caregivers also offer dog walking services in Cincinnati. With your permission, your pooch and their caregiver can go for a stroll on a nearby trail. An on-leash adventure at the Caldwell Park Trails will help keep your mutt happy and healthy while you're away. 

Whether you're keen on a kennel or seeking a sitter, here's everything you need to know about dog sitting and boarding in Cincinnati.

Average Cost of Dog Boarding in Cincinnati, OH

Most Cincinnati dog boarding facilities are basic kennels. While these services are fairly reasonable at a rate of around $45 per night, watch out for extra fees. Many dog boarders in Cincinnati will charge you for a range of added extras. These additional costs include everything from purified water to belly rubs to a game of fetch. While these added fees are generally only a few dollars each, they can quickly rack up, leaving you with a hefty bill. 

Additionally, check out the T&Cs before taking your pup along to a kennel. Many dog boarding facilities in Cincinnati require you to have proof that your pup has had vaccinations and has a microchip. Additionally, some require you to give your pupper flea treatments in the months leading up to their stay. 

Not set on sending your woofer to a local kennel? Book a dog boarder on the Wag! platform. Dog boarders through Wag! charge as little as $39 a night. They also care for your hound at their home, so your pup can avoid the stress of a kennel.

Average Cost of Dog Sitting in Cincinnati, OH

If you'd prefer your mutt stays at your manor, book a Cincinnati dog sitter. Dog sitters in Cincinnati will provide overnight care for your pup, so you can rest easy knowing your fur-baby and your house are being looked after. However, these services can be pricey and range from $70 to $120 per night. 

Some dog sitters in Cincinnati are very busy and require you to book a month in advance, or three months for holidays. Some also have strict rules; for example, your dog must be neutered or have had a year's worth of flea treatments. 

Dog sitters often have specific working hours and won't be around during the day. As a result, you may have to book additional day visits so your pup gets enough food and exercise. 

If you can't find the right dog sitter for your fur-baby, check out the caregivers available on the Wag! platform. Cincinnati dog sitters through Wag! charge a starting rate of $39 per night. All fees are upfront so you won't get any nasty surprises when you get home.

During your pooch's stay, your dog sitter will send you pictures and videos of your mutt, so you can sleep soundly knowing they're safe and content.
