“Pounding Pavement for Pups!”

I have had dogs all my life, I have always loved them. I got involved in rescue over 10 years ago and have been fortunate to help and love many dogs. Being able to care for them and see them transform from the sick, scared, or abused (often all of those) dogs into healthy, loving babies is so rewarding. They are so loving, and deserve the very best we can do for them!

Hi, my name is Brittany and I love all dogs, but specialize in the big ones. When I lived in Georgia, I spent some time rescuing pitbulls from bad homes and loving them in my home until they were ready to be relocated to new happy homes.

Dog Boarding in Dallas

In a “pawfect” world, you’d be able to take your pup with you every time you go away on vacation. Unfortunately, that’s not always possible, so you’ll need to find somewhere safe, comfortable, and affordable for your dog to stay while you’re away.

The good news is that you don’t have to pack your pup off to the unfamiliar and intimidating environment of a boarding kennel. Instead, why not find a trusted pet caregiver with Wag! who offers in-home Dallas dog boarding?

This means your dog is cared for in a loving home environment — either your home or the pet sitter’s. And if you’re happy for them to do so, these local dog boarders in Dallas can also treat your pooch to an outdoor adventure. For example, your pup might like to explore the 13 wonderful trails in Cedar Ridge Preserve, or take a stroll around the Glendale Park Loop Trail.

If you’re searching for dog sitting or dog boarding services near you, keep reading to find out about the average cost of overnight pooch care in Dallas, TX.

Average Cost of Dog Boarding in Dallas, TX

If you’re comparing Dallas dog boarding facilities, you’ll soon discover that there’s a wide range of options to choose from. There are also some pretty fancy kennels on offer, with some offering everything from flat-screen TVs and room service to in-house spas. Other features include group and individual play sessions, bedtime cuddles, and pick-up and drop-off services.

As a general guide, the price of Dallas dog boarding starts at around $50 per dog per night for the most basic package. You can get a slight discount off this nightly rate if you’re booking more than one pooch in for a stay. And if you’re planning on securing a deluxe suite for your dog or pampering them with extra-special services, you could be looking at a price tag of more than $100 a night.

We know you can’t put a price on your pup’s happiness, but there’s a much more affordable option for dog boarding near you. Dog boarding prices with pet caregivers on the Wag! platform start at just $39 per night — if you’re heading out of town for a few days or more, those savings will really add up.

Average Cost of Dog Sitting in Dallas, TX

Would your dog prefer to stay at home than in an unfamiliar environment? If so, you’ll want to start comparing Dallas dog sitters who offer in-home overnight care.

The average cost of overnight dog sitting in Dallas is approximately $80 to $100, but some services charge more than this. Costs can also vary based on your dog’s age, whether you need sitting on the weekend or mid-week, and even where you live. If your pup requires extra-special care, such as if you want the dog sitter to walk your pooch or administer their medication, the price may increase even further. 

If you do decide to compare dog sitters in Dallas, TX, make sure to read the fine print closely. Some providers aren’t completely transparent about the full cost of their services, so watch out for hidden fees. 

Dog Boarding in Dallas, TX

It doesn’t matter whether you’re away for one night or an extended break — trusted and fully vetted dog boarders through Wag! will pamper your pooch with 5-star care.

Here’s what you need to do. To get started, download the Wag! app and start browsing the profiles of dog boarders in Dallas, TX. You’ll need to provide some basic details about your pup and select “Boarding” from the range of Overnight Care services on offer. You can then specify your travel dates and add transportation for an additional fee.

You can then start comparing local dog boarders and what they have to offer. The pet caregivers on Wag! boast experience in a diverse range of pet care fields, including everything from animal foster care to training, grooming, and volunteering with shelters and rescue groups. Check reviews from other pet parents to get a feel for what each person has to offer, and assess their level of experience to determine whether they’ll be a good fit for your pup.

Once you’ve found the right person, use the chat feature to discuss your Dallas dog boarding needs. While you’re away, the pet caregiver will keep you up to date on your pup’s progress with photos and videos of your pooch playing, exercising, eating, and of course getting plenty of cuddles! 

Best of all, you get the peace of mind of knowing that your pup is being cared for in an in-home setting. So if your pup is prone to separation anxiety or just thrives when given plenty of love and attention, you know they’ll be in safe hands. Maybe that’s why 95% of boarding sessions with Wag! result in a 5-star review. 

Dog Sitting in Dallas, TX

Dog sitting services with Wag! are focused on ensuring that your pet enjoys the best possible care while you’re away. 

To book a Dallas dog sitting session, use the Wag! app to browse highly-rated dog sitters near you. Remember to consider a sitter’s experience and reviews before deciding whether they’re the right match for your pet’s age, breed, and personality. When you’ve found the “pawfect” candidate, use the in-app chat feature to discuss your pet’s exercise, dietary, and companionship requirements.

The main advantage of choosing a Dallas dog sitter with Wag! is that your pooch gets to stay in their home environment. That should make it easier for them to cope with your absence, and will also help them adapt to being cared for by a loving pet sitter. You don’t have to miss out on the fun, as your pet’s caregiver will keep you updated with photos, videos, and messages about all of your pet’s adventures. 

That means a stress-free trip away for you, and a relaxing stay at home for your dog. Book Dallas dog sitting or dog boarding on the Wag! app today to get your pup’s tail wagging!

What could possibly be cuter than a dog in an adorable Halloween costume? How about hundreds of dogs in Halloween costumes? Better yet, what if they were all Pugs? That’s the basic premise of Pug-O-Ween, the annual fundraiser for DFW Pug Rescue. Held at the Grapevine Convention Center in the lead-up to Halloween each year, this fun family event sees hundreds of Pugs parade around in their scariest, most hair-raising costumes. Throw in a silent auction, bake sale, costume competitions, and food vendors, and it quickly becomes clear that the Pug life has its perks! Best of all, this Pug-tacular fun is for a very worthy cause, with all proceeds used to help prepare Pugs for adoption. Add this Fido-friendly fundraiser to your calendar and make your next Howl-o-ween one to remember.
