Dog Boarding in San Antonio

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.

But that’s not necessarily the case. With a little help from Wag!, you can find trusted, reliable, and affordable dog sitting and dog boarding in San Antonio. That means your pup gets cared for in a loving home environment while you’re away, and you get the peace of mind of knowing that your pooch is in safe hands.

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. Whether they’re exploring the trails in Government Canyon State Park or strolling along the San Antonio River, your fur-baby will love every minute.

If you’re sniffing around for dog boarding or dog sitting services near you, keep reading to find out more about the average cost of overnight care in San Antonio. 

Average Cost of Dog Boarding in San Antonio, TX

You’re spoiled for choice when searching for San Antonio dog boarding kennels. But before you book any accommodation for your dog, make sure you consider the sort of vacation experience your pooch prefers.

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. This sort of “ultimutt” luxury comes at a cost, however, with prices often around the $60 to $80 per night range.

If you’re looking for more affordable dog boarding prices in San Antonio, why not book your pet in for a stay with a trusted pet boarder through Wag!? With prices starting from just $39 a night, you’ll have plenty of money left over to spend on spoiling your pup.

Average Cost of Dog Sitting in San Antonio, TX

If you’re comparing San Antonio dog sitting services, one of the key factors you’ll need to consider is the cost. The average price for dog sitting is between $70 and $90 per night, but some services charge more than $100.

It’s also important to be aware that additional charges may apply. For example, many pet sitters charge more on weekends or will tack on extra fees for things like walking your pup or administering their medication. That’s why you should always read the fine print closely before making a booking.

You’ll also need to choose whether your pup will stay in the sitter’s home, or whether you want to look for in-home dog sitters near you. If your pet will be sleeping over at the sitter’s home, check if they offer pick-up and drop-off services and how much they cost.

Dog Boarding in San Antonio, TX

When you choose a dog boarder with Wag!, you get the comfort of knowing your pup is being looked after by a loving pet caregiver. All dog boarders in San Antonio with Wag! are thoroughly vetted, highly experienced, and care for their doggy guests as if they are their own fur-babies. 

Even better, your dog gets the benefit of staying in a loving home environment. For pups that find traditional boarding kennels intimidating or overwhelming, this is a big bonus.

If you think this sounds like the “pawfect” fit for your pet, here’s what you need to do. Download the Wag! app, create an account, and provide some basic details about your fur-baby. Then you can select “Boarding”, enter your travel start and end dates, and start reviewing the profiles of local dog boarders near you. Check each candidate’s experience and customer reviews, then connect with the person you choose over in-app chat to discuss your dog’s care needs.

Then when the time comes for you to head out of town, your pup will be cared for in a nurturing home environment. You’ll receive regular text, photo, and video updates so you can keep track of your pup’s adventures. Plus, you can contact the pet caregiver at any time through the Wag! app. 

From start to finish, the entire process is simple, affordable, and stress-free — that’s probably why 95% of boarding bookings result in a 5-star rating.
