Average cost of dog boarding in Arlington, TX

Looking for an Arlington dog boarding kennel? There are several options to choose from, so you’ll need to compare your options before deciding on the right place for your pup to stay. 

Dog boarding prices for basic accommodation at some dog kennels start at around $40 per night. But you’ll also need to check the fine print to find out what is and isn’t included in the standard nightly cost. For example, you may need to pay more for services like walks, administering medication, and play sessions for your dog. These extra costs can quickly add up, until you’re looking at a much more expensive stay than you first anticipated.

Then there are those luxury boarding facilities for pups that enjoy the finer things in life. These pet resorts offer features like opulent suites, TVs, webcams (so you can check up on your pup), and a whole lot of one-on-one attention for your dog. But they don’t always come cheap, so don’t be surprised if you have to pay $50 or more per night.

In comparison, local dog boarders with Wag! will care for your pup in their own home for an average rate of $44 to $53 per night. Arlington dog boarders with Wag! set their own rates — you’ll see the final price when you book your Pet Caregiver. The rate includes regular photo and video updates of your pup, and the confidence of knowing that they’re being cared for by a loving pet parent — now that should put a wag in your tail!
