“Your Singing Wag Walker”

Hi fellow dog lover! I’m Carrie! I can spot a dog a mile away and with hearts in my eyes, I say, “Dog!” I have a Senior Rhodesian Ridgeback/Lab mix named Cleo and a Beagle Mix puppy named Dottie. I’ve dog sat for many friends and private clients, volunteered at the Texas Independent Rhodesian Ridgeback Rescue and have partnered with my own dog sitter, taking on a few of her furry clients as well. I can’t wait to meet and love on your fur baby!

“ALL dogs allowed! Every dog is the best dog ❤”

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!

Dog Boarding in Fort Worth

We’d all love to take our dogs with us everywhere we go, but sometimes that’s simply not possible. But if you’re leaving Fort Worth, TX, and heading away for a vacation or business trip, you don’t have to start searching for dog kennels near you just yet.

Did you know that you can find affordable dog boarding and dog sitting in Fort Worth with Wag!? This gives you the benefit of leaving your pup with a trusted and experienced pet caregiver, while your pooch gets the pleasure of staying in a loving home environment until you get back.

Just as pleasing for your pup is that, with your permission, the caregiver can also take them out for walks and adventures. So while you’re out of town, your pup could check out the trail network at the Fort Worth Nature Center or some of the region’s other best dog-friendly walks.

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

Average Cost of Dog Boarding in Fort Worth, TX

Some Fort Worth dog boarding kennels specialize in offering basic overnight accommodation for dogs of all shapes and sizes. If this sounds like the right option for your pup, you could be looking at a nightly fee of around $40 to $50.

But it’s also important to read the terms and conditions before making a booking, as many dog boarding services charge extra fees for certain services. For example, some facilities that offer daycare as well as boarding will charge a daycare fee and a boarding fee when your pet stays the night. Others will charge extra for play sessions, cuddle time, and even giving your pet medication, so check the fine print before you make a reservation.

Alternatively, maybe you want your pup to stay in luxurious comfort while you’re away. If that’s the case, you could always find your pooch a deluxe suite at a pet resort. This could allow your pup to take advantage of 5-star features like swimming pools, their own TV, and plush bedding, but it comes at a price. Depending on the pet resort you choose, you could be looking at a nightly cost of anywhere between $65 and $130.

That’s a lot of money in anyone’s book, especially when you compare it to the affordable prices offered by dog boarders in Fort Worth with Wag!. With rates starting from just $39 a night, it’s sure to put a smile on your pup’s face and ease the pressure on your wallet.

Average Cost of Dog Sitting in Fort Worth, TX

If your pet prefers the comfort of an in-home stay to an unfamiliar kennel environment, there are plenty of Fort Worth dog sitting services that can help. In-home dog sitters near you typically charge between $60 and $80 per night.

However, it’s important to check what’s covered by this initial fee. Does the sitter offer pick-up and drop-off services, or will they be caring for your dog in your home? Will they take your pup for a walk? Will they administer medication and take care of any grooming requirements? Extra charges often apply, so check the fine print closely.

It’s also essential to find a sitter who is the ideal “pawsonality” match for your pet. You want your pet to be as comfortable as possible while you’re away, so doing a little research at this stage is vital.
