Dog Boarding In Oakland

The Oakland Dog Kennel Alternative

When your dog hears nature calling, Oakland, California has a number of great places where he can stretch his legs and have a howling good time! Head on out to Redwood Regional Park for an off-leash trot, or have an explosively fun time together at the Robert Sibley Volcanic Preserve.

If your dog wants to answer the “call of the wild” and still exercise his cultured canine side, be sure to mark your calendars with a red paw print for the second Saturday of the month from October to December. Oakland’s Jack London Square plays host to the dog-friendly Jack of All Trades fair in (where else?!) Jack London Square. You and your pup can fetch some local art and food. Yum!

But for those times that you need a pet sitter and a temporary loving home for your beloved canine companion, look no further that Rover. At, we love your pets just as much as you do and are proud to list dog sitters, dog walking services, and dog boarding in Oakland that take this love for dogs just as personally as we do. - Dog Boarding Community
