Centrally located to some of the most desired vacation spots, Boston offers the chance for quick weekend getaways to Cape Cod and Gloucester. However, not all Bostonian travel plans readily accommodate dogs. That's where we come in.

No matter what your schedule looks like - a business trip across the country, a tropical vacation on the other side of the world, or a weekend excursion out of town - you'll find a trustworthy dog sitter on Rover. Your dog will love the in-home dog boarding experience they'll get with a sitter on Rover. It's truly luxury boarding, because your dog isn't locked in cage at a kennel, they're lounging on the couch with people who'll treat them like you would - like family. In-house dog boarding means less stress for your pets, more one-on-one attention, and plenty of potty breaks, so you can take your trip and rest easy knowing that your dog is in great hands. Plus, you can even request adorable photo updates to follow along on your dog's boarding experience in Boston while you're away.

eady to get started? Finding your dog's perfect match is simple: just type in your zip code, choose dog boarding as your service, browse local sitter profiles near you, and get a conversation started with someone who seems like a great fit.
