As of 2014, most professional kennels and doggy day cares charge about $30 to $40 per night for dog boarding. One can find recommended pet sitters, along with references, on websites such as DogVacay.com for as little as $20.
Prices vary based on the boarded dog's age, breed, size, special needs and temperament. Different boarders have different drop-off and pick-up times, as well. Many overnight dog resorts provide basic care, including walks, potty breaks, feeding and well-being checks. Others may offer premium bedding, soothing background music or luxury spa services, such as cutting and styling, shampooing, skin treatments, facials, nail trimming and dental treatments.
