“I'll treat your pet as if it were my own!”

Hello, I'm avid animal lover! Especially dogs because they are incredible creatures. I've recently started to train to be a certified dog trainer and I believe working with wag will accelerate my training. I walk my dog and my friend's dog 2 to 4 miles per day and have noticed how much better they are throughout the rest of the day with proper exercise. I'm very excited for the opportunity to do this for as many dogs as possible.

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.
