Dog Boarding in Portland

Portland, OR may be a wonderful vacation destination and a great place to live, but sometimes the residents of this beautiful city need to get away for awhile. And even though you’d love to take your precious pup with you everywhere you go, sometimes that simply isn’t possible.

But if you’re heading out of town for a day, a week, or even longer, there’s no need to start searching for dog kennels near you. Instead, why not arrange trusted Portland dog boarding or Portland dog sitting through Wag!?

They get the joy of being cared for by a loving pet parent, and you get the peace of mind of knowing your pup is in safe hands. And when you book Portland dog sitting or dog boarding with Wag!, the pet caregiver can even take your pup to explore some of the city’s best walking trails — for example, your pooch will love checking out the Powell Butte Nature Park trails.
