How Much Does It Cost To Board A Dog?

How Much Does It Cost To Board A Dog

Boarding your dog may cost $25 to $50 for dog kennels a night while it costs between $40 to $85 for dog hotels a night. Some homeowners also advertise dog boarding for up to 2 dogs at a less expensive rate of about $15 a night because they don't have overhead, employee, and other expenses that boarding companies have. Depending on the area, the pricing of dog boarding is subject to varying operating costs. 

Check your local kennel or home-boarder about specific rates and packages. Most facilities offer daily, nightly, per 5 days, weekly, and monthly pricing. Some facilities charge per day regardless of the length of stay within the day while others charge at a 12/24 hour rate. 

Most facilities often offer discounted pricing for long-term stays. Be sure to schedule when you want to board your dog as boarders seldom entertain walk-ins and they reserve spots on a first-come-first-serve basis.

When deciding among where to board your dog, read about local ordinances relating to requirements for these facilities and check whether they are being followed.
