“Your dog’s best friend when you can’t be there”

I am passionate about dogs and have raised and loved multiple medium to large breed dogs over the past 30 years. My current baby is an active 87 lb Rhodesian Ridgeback, the second Rhodesian I have raised from puppyhood. I tailor my level of effort to your dog’s needs and specialize in high energy dogs who enjoy a faster pace. I treat each of my dog clients as if they were my own and have a proven WAG! track record of being 100% reliable, giving above and beyond care to my clients on every walk.

I grew up with a dog named Terry in Virginia Beach, VA for the first 18 years of my life. I currently am a board member of the Norfolk SPCA and own a cat named noraA. I enjoy watching my best friend's two Golden Retrievers when he goes out of town as well as my sister's three Boston Terriers when she goes out of town. I already walk between 10-15 miles per day on my own so the opportunity to combine my love of dogs and walking is very exciting to me.

Hey, my name is Eli and I love animals and the outdoors! I grew up interacting with all kinds of animals in the South Miami area from house pets like dogs and cats to the local wild animals like ducks, turtles, and iguanas.

Dog Boarding in Virginia Beach

It doesn’t matter whether you're heading away for business or a vacation, leaving your pup behind is one of the biggest challenges of being a pet parent. But if you call Virginia Beach, VA, home, you don’t need to start comparing boarding kennels near you just yet.

Instead, why not consider your in-home dog sitting and dog boarding options with a Wag! caregiver? This gives your pup the comfort of staying in a loving home environment, and it gives you the peace of mind of knowing that your fur-baby is receiving plenty of TLC from a trusted pet parent.

Even better, the pet caregiver can take your pet out for an adventure to check out some of the best local dog-friendly trails. For example, your pup might like hiking the myriad trails at First Landing State Park.

If you’re looking for reliable dog boarders and dog sitters in Virginia Beach, keep reading to find out how much you can expect to pay for overnight care.

Average Cost of Dog Boarding in Virginia Beach, VA

Searching for Virginia Beach dog boarding kennels? You’re spoiled for choice — so how do you know which one is the best choice for your pup?

While there are several factors to consider when choosing a boarding kennel, cost is always important. If you just want basic accommodation for your fur-baby, you can generally expect to pay something in the $40 to $50 range. But before you book, make sure you know exactly what’s included in the upfront fee — some services, such as extra play sessions or administering your pup’s medication, may incur an additional fee.

Alternatively, you might be looking to find your fur-baby a room at a luxury pet resort. Maybe your pup would like their very own TV? Maybe they’d love spa and massage treatments available on-site? And maybe you’d like a webcam in your pup’s luxury suite so you can check up on them at any time? If that’s the case, you can expect to pay around $55 to $70 a night, but accommodation may cost even more in some cases.

Compare that to the rates offered by dog boarders in Virginia Beach with Wag!, which start at $39 a night, and you’ll start to see why boarding with a Wag! pet caregiver represents such good value for money.

Average Cost of Dog Sitting in Virginia Beach, VA

If you think your dog could benefit from one-on-one attention while you’re gone, you might want to hire a pet sitter. Virginia Beach dog sitting services charge approximately $75 to $120 for an overnight stay.

But rather than simply looking at the average price for dog sitting in Virginia Beach, it’s also important to read the fine print and find out what’s included in the cost. For example, will the sitter take your dog for a walk? Will they give them their medication? How long will they stay with your pet?

Make sure you’re aware of the total cost of Virginia Beach dog sitting before you make a booking.

When you go away, you’ll receive regular photo and video updates so you can keep track of everything your dog is doing. You can also contact the pet caregiver at any time via in-app chat, ensuring that you have complete peace of mind while you and your pup are apart.

Dog Sitting in Virginia Beach, VA

If your pup would be more comfortable staying at home rather than in an unfamiliar environment, it’s time to start comparing dog sitters in Virginia Beach.

Dietary needs, medication, lots of cuddles — whatever your pet requires to stay happy and healthy, make sure the dog sitter knows how to help your pooch feel right at home.

When the time comes for you to hit the road, you’ll receive regular updates from the pet caregiver so you can keep tabs on your pup. You can also contact them at any time via in-app chat.
