Dog Boarding In Philadelphia

The Philadelphia Dog Kennel Alternative

Dog owners love Rover's Philadelphia dog sitters. 883 owners have reviewed sitters in Philadelphia, giving them an average rating of 4.5/5.

Philadelphia – the City of Brotherly Love, or perhaps it should be renamed the “City of Doggy Love”? Philadelphians are a confident bunch with hometown pride that rings louder than the Liberty Bell. And when it comes to sentiment, canines certainly aren’t exempt. Home to distinctively delicious local cuisine (cheese steak or pretzels, anyone?) as well as the largest landscaped urban park in the world, the possibilities for you and your dog are endless.

Philadelphians have a lot of love to give, especially when it comes to their pets. At, we love your pets just as much as you do and are proud to list dog boarding, dog sitters, and dog walking services that take this love for dogs personally. By donating to local charities through Rover’s “Sit a Dog, Save a Life” program, Philly dog lovers actively contribute to organizations such as PAWS Philadelphia. Because at believe every dog deserves a loving home. - Dog Boarding Community
