Cheryl N. says, " We adopted Gibson back in 2012 he is very special with his funny bark . He was our gift to our Shepherd so he would have a little brother. They became very close and both are loved so much. Sadly we lost our Gunner. Pet Orphans was very cool and watched our Gunner while we walked through to find our new boy., they made us feel very comfortable. Maybe some day we will come back to find our new fur baby so Gibson can be a big brother. Thank you for our Woo Woo boy." Read more

For me, I'm a major dog lover and my boyfriend gives me a run for my money in that regard. It just isn't the time for us to get our own dog, but I take classes from home so your dog would be fully loved on as much as he/she wants and would always have someone ready to tend to his/her needs.

My home is catered to the best care possible for dogs. We have a big back yard, a pet door and three wonderful live-in dogs who are very friendly to guests. The reason I enjoy taking care of dogs is that I've had dogs all my life (18 in 43 years of marriage). That's dedication to the canine breed. I work out of my home and so I'm always home. We have a state-of-the-art dog park down the street, live in a very quiet neighborhood, ideal for a safe and pleasant stay....

Every dog is a little bit different and I ove that. I will help you to be the pack leader that your dog needs in his life. It's more about training the human and the dog will follow. The variety to work with many different personalities and breads. I grew up with 15 German shepherds on my grandfather's farm. It was an amazing experience and it help me to understand dogs and their behavior. Ceaser Milan and a handful of other dog behaviorists helped me to understand the quick way of getting great results....

I (and my whole family) have been blessed with fantastic pets my whole life. I’ve helped deliver pups and kitties, and taken care of them very well. I’ve watched pets for family and friends, and decided to branch out, and watch other people’s pets. I’m trustworthy, and animals tend to love me! Give me a chance to earn your trust, and let me work for you!

Your dog boarding questions, answered

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on HomeGuide.

What is dog boarding?

It happens to the best of us—we have to go out of town or work on a big job and there’s no one to look after the dog. Thankfully, there are a fair number of dog boarding opportunities for your dog near your home. Dog boarding kennels provide your dog a safe and secure place to call their home away from home while you are away. Dog boarding is sometimes accompanied by other services, such as dog training and dog grooming.

How much does dog boarding cost?

Dog boarding costs $40 a night on average, depending on where you live, the size of your dog, and how long of a stay your pet needs. While the cost of boarding your dog may depend on a number of circumstances, most companies charge per day and/or night. Overall, you can expect the range to be between $25 and $85 each night.

What vaccinations do dogs need for boarding?

Dogs need proof of Distemper, Parvo and Bordetella (kennel cough) annually and Rabies every 1-3 years. Puppies must be 10 days past their final round of distemper/parvo vaccination before kennels will accept them for boarding. Vaccinations need to be given no less than 7 days prior to boarding. If this is the dog's first Bordetella vaccination, it must be given 2 weeks prior to boarding.

How old does a dog have to be for boarding?

For all breeds of dogs, most dog kennels require the dog to be at least 4 months old (12 to 16 weeks) old. This is because all certified kennels require incoming puppies to have had their first round of adult shots at 12 weeks, followed by the second round at around 16 weeks.

What do I need to take my dog to the kennel?

When preparing to take your dog to the kennel, remember to:

  1. Be up to date on their vaccinations. Vaccinations need to be given no less than 7 days prior to boarding.
  2. Pack plenty of your dog’s usual food for the length of their stay.
  3. Pack any medications or supplements that your dog may need.
  4. Pack your dog's leashes.
  5. Write a list of any special instructions you may have for your kennel regarding feeding times, portions for food, your local vet's phone number, and where you can be reached.
  6. Don't forget to pack your dog's favorite toys. An old t-shirt that smells like you can also make for a great cuddle toy!

What is the difference between dog sitting and boarding?

The difference between dog sitting and boarding is the length of stay and attention of care. Dog boarding is like a hotel, where it's typically an overnight stay at a kennel where your dog is around other dogs. On the other hand, a dog sitter will watch your pet at either their or your home, or they may just stop by to care for your pets two or three times per day.

While in-home dog care might feel uncomfortable to some because of giving a stranger access to your home, having someone stop by can be much less intimidating for the dog than having to stay in a crate or small room overnight with other dogs around. If you are one of those dog owners who would rather your dog be in his or her own home while you are out of town, you may want to check out local dog sitters near you.

How long before boarding does dog need a Bordetella shot?

In general, puppies can receive injectable Bordetella (kennel cough) vaccines between 6 and 8 weeks of age and booster shots when they're 10 to 12 weeks old. Adult dogs generally need booster vaccines for Bordetella in intervals of six months to a year. If this is the dog's first Bordetella vaccination, it must be given 2 weeks prior to boarding.

Zulma stands out to me as a dog sitter not just because she's excellent and loves dogs so much - but also because her whole family does! Our 8 month old maltipoo puppy was in great hands for over a week, and Zulma did a great job of sending me picture updates so I wouldn't miss our puppy too much. It was wonderful to see her daughter loving on our puppy every day! Another thing that was great was Zulma's very quick responses and strong communication. I always felt like I could reach her even with changing details from my end on things like drop off/pick up hours. She was very flexible and made sure to work with my schedule always. Definitely will be staying in touch and working with Zulma again! And recommending her to my doggo parent friends too!
