Dog Boarding In Boston

Boston’s Dog Kennel Alternative

When it comes to dog boarding, dog owners in Boston trust their pets with sitters on Rover. Over 6,588 pet owners have reviewed sitters in Boston, giving them an average rating of 4.93/5. The cost of dog boarding in Boston may surprise you—in a good way. That’s because there’s a dog sitter on Rover for nearly every price range and lifestyle. Curious about how much it you can expect to pay for overnight boarding on Rover? Check out our average dog sitting rates to get an idea before you begin a conversation with a well-matched sitter.

Where history meets modern culture, scenic Boston is sure to provide your dog with plenty of opportunity to enjoy the outdoors and city life. Complete with trails, dog parks, and splendid city views, Boston is the destination for the urban dog.

Wander up Beacon Hill or into Kenmore Square and you will find plenty of stores and restaurants that will gladly cater to your precious pooch. If that doesn't suit your fancy, simply take a walk down cobblestone streets, visit the city dog parks, or play in the water along the nearby harbor.

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.

Ready 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.

Things to do with your dog in Boston

Book Dog Boarding with Rover to Donate to a Local Nonprofit

Sit a Dog, Save a Life lets you raise money for local dogs-in-need by doing something you do already: asking your neighbors to watch your dog instead of boarding them in a kennel.

When you book with a sitter who has the Rover Donation Badge on their profile, you're helping dogs in need, right here in Boston.
