Even in the Big Apple, dog boarding can be affordable, no matter what your price range may be. Curious about how much it might cost to board your dog for a night in New York with Rover.com? Check out our average dog sitting and dog boarding rates near you to get an idea before getting a conversation started with a sitter on Rover. When you leave your dog with a sitter you’ve connected with on Rover, you can relax, knowing your dog will be treated like family.

Whether you’ll be gone for a day or a week, your dog’s perfect overnight sitter is available on Rover.com. Plus, with so many incredible green spaces and parks in New York City, dog sitters there are in the perfect location to spoil your dog, by taking them for stimulating walks, energetic runs, and exciting fetch sessions in one of the greatest cities in the world. Speaking of spoiling your dog, with Rover, your dog isn’t just locked up in a cage at a kennel, they’ll be given one-on-one attention—now that’s what we call luxury boarding. Rover’s boarding service in NYC is an in-home experience that’s personalized to you and your dog’s needs.

The New York area is full of dog-friendly events like the Westminster Dog Show and the Union Square dog run. There’s even an event called the Fort Tryon dog run, where dog owners can lounge together in a gazebo overlooking the Hudson River while their dogs and puppies socialize on the canine playgrounds. New Yorkers often enjoy dog-friendly fun alongside world-famous signature foods, like bialy bagels and dirty-water hot dogs, and outstanding architecture—it’s an area full of signature tastes and plenty of hometown pride, and at Rover, we’re proud to be a part of such an amazing dog-loving community. We list 100s of sitters who take their love for dogs a step further by donating to local charities through Rover’s Sit a Dog, Save a Life program. By doing this, NYC dog lovers are actively contributing to organizations like PAWS NY and Animal Haven who do amazing things for animals every day.

Ready to get started? On Rover, there are 100s of 5-star reviewed in-house dog sitters in New York who can’t wait to watch your dog. The process is simple: choose dog boarding as your service, browse local dog sitters in your neighborhood by searching your zip code, and get a conversation started with your dog’s perfect match.

Book a Stay, Donate to a Cause

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 leaving 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 New York City.

We're proud to be partnered with over 200 partners across the nation, including these local shelters:
