“I'll treat your pups like my own!”

Hello, I'm Katrina! I have always had a love for animals. I believe dogs are part of the family and should be treated that way! When your pup is with me, they will get the same love and attention I'd give to my own. I currently have 2 rescues; Maia, a black lab mix and Dexter, a beagle. I am comfortable with dogs of all ages, sizes, and breeds. I love that I am able to incorporate my love of dogs into a job that I can be excited about. I can't wait to meet your pup!

I’ve been in love with dogs my whole life, and I’ve rescued quite a few. I’ve gotten to be very good at calming and distracting dogs who get a little bit nervous or unsteady with others or their surroundings. I do my best to know the moves a dog might make before they make them, along with sensing their mood in certain situations so that I’ll always be ready for anything. The most important thing is to know that both you & your best friend can always feel secure in knowing they are safe with me.

I have been a volunteer for the Lakewood Animal Shelter since 2012 and have walked and dog sat for many friends over the years. I enjoy getting to know a dog, as they all have their own unique and intelligent personalities (like people). It's a refreshing to spend time with dogs with their enthusiasm and simple outlook on life. I walk and run daily clocking anywhere from 15 to 40+ miles per week. I would enjoy having a companion for some of those miles.

“Personal care for your dog”

I am an experienced pet care giver who lives with 3 cats. I love being around all types of dogs. I have dealt with high and low energy dogs; dogs that pull and dogs that need coaxing. My goal is to give you peace of mind and your fur baby attention and extra love. I enjoy having the dog show me their favorite walk. My preference is to find a quiet tree lined street with lots of smells. I sanitize my hands before and after every walk. Time in the house is limited.

Dog Boarding in Cleveland

Cleveland is an excellent city for pet parents, but what do you do if you're planning a weekend getaway and can't bring Fido along? While putting your pupper in a kennel may seem like the obvious option, they may not be as happy as somewhere else.

Luckily, there are dozens of dog sitters and boarders in Cleveland who can't wait to dote on your adorable doggo. As well as waiting on your pupper paw and tail, many sitters and boarders offer Cleveland dog walking services. With your permission, your pet caregiver will take your woofer on an on-leash adventure down the scenic Ohio and Erie Canal Towpath Trail. Dog boarders and sitters on the Wag! platform are an affordable alternative to traditional services. They'll also look after Scoob in a home environment, so you know your pup will have a comfy place to curl up for the night. 

Set on booking a dog sitter or boarder in Cleveland for Fido? Here's everything you need to know. 

Average Cost of Dog Boarding in Cleveland, OH

Most traditional dog boarding facilities in Cleveland are kennels. While kennels are an affordable option at around $45 a night, your pup may get stressed out being in a strange environment surrounded by other hounds. 

There are also upscale dog boarding facilities in Cleveland that will have your dog living in luxury. These extravagant rooms have flatscreen TVs, human-sized beds, and are temperature controlled. Some even provide a swimming pool for your woofer to play in. However, these resorts can be pretty pricey and will set you back around $95 a night.

Many dog boarders in Cleveland charge extra for certain services. For example, you'll have to pay a small fee for one-on-one playtime, or if your dog needs medication. These fees can rack up quickly and could burn a hole in your pocket. 

Always check your chosen boarder's requirements before booking. Most dog boarders in Cleveland require your dog to have up-to-date vaccinations, be neutered, and have active flea and heartworm treatments. 

With prices starting as low as $39 per night, Cleveland dog boarders through Wag! are a great alternative. They'll look after your pupper at their home, which is perfect for fur-babies who don't get along well with many other mutts around. 

Average Cost of Dog Sitting in Cleveland, OH

If you have an older dog or a pup that suffers from separation anxiety, you might be happier with them staying at home while you're out of town. Many Cleveland dog sitters will come to your house for overnight slumber parties with your pooch. However, these services are more expensive than standard kennels and cost around $70 per night.

It's worth noting that many dog sitters in Cleveland require a deposit of up to 50% when booking. You'll also have to give around three weeks’ notice before your trip — which isn't ideal if you have to rush out of town. 

Many dog sitters also have strict working hours and will only be around during the evening. As a result, you may have to book additional visits to ensure your fur-baby is properly fed and exercised. Also, be careful with hidden fees, as some sitters will charge for added extras such as walks.

Unsure about booking a dog sitter in Cleveland? Dog sitters on the Wag! platform present all their fees upfront, and rates start at $39, so you'll have more cash to splash on Princess when you return home.
