Dog Boarding in New York City
Find a loving dog sitter to watch your dog overnight at your sitter's home.
Why do New York City dog owners choose Rover dog boarding?
From The Bronx to Staten Island and every borough in between, there are loving pet owners looking for just the right person to care for their dogs while they're traveling or away from home. Many dog owners turn to Rover, in large part because Rover dog sitters offer in-home dog boarding in New York City, which is great for pups and convenient for busy New Yorkers.
Why do dog owners love NYC?
New York City has a seemingly universal magnetism that can't be denied - especially for dog owners. Despite the fact that many New Yorkers live in infamously small spaces, the city is full of residents who are proud to call themselves pet parents. And with so many dog-friendly parks and outdoor spaces - including the incredible 843-acre Central Park - who can blame them? Plus, there's a Rover dog sitter or walker on just about every block, ready to care for their pups like they're their own.
What New York City neighborhoods do dog owners love most?
