Although it would be wonderful if you could take your fur-baby with you whenever you go away, that’s not always possible. So if you’re a San Antonio, TX, resident planning an upcoming vacation, you’re probably thinking it’s time to start searching for dog kennels near you.

And if your boarder or sitter also offers dog walking services in San Antonio, they can take your pup on an outdoor adventure or two while you’re away.

If you’re just after basic San Antonio dog boarding services, it’s not uncommon to pay $40 to $50 a night. But it’s worth checking the fine print to find out exactly what’s included for the cost. Some services charge extra for things like administering medication, snuggle time, and play sessions for your pup, so the cost can quickly add up.
Of course, if your pooch enjoys the finer things in life, you may want to book them a suite at a luxury pet resort. There, they can make the most of facilities and features like super-plush bedding, swimming pools, glamorous day spas, and their very own TV.
