Dog Boarding In Philadelphia

Philadelphia’s Dog Kennel Alternative

When it comes to dog boarding, dog owners in Philadelphia trust their pets with sitters on Rover. Over 5,448 pet owners have reviewed dog sitters in Philadelphia, giving them an average rating of 4.94/5. The cost of dog boarding in Philadelphia 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 dog boarding on Rover? Check out our average dog sitting rates to get an idea before you begin a conversation with a well-matched sitter.

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 dogs. At Rover.com, 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.

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 Philadelphia 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.

Book Dog Boarding on Rover, Donate to a Cause

Our Sit a Dog, Save a Life program 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. Many Rover sitters in Philadelphia donate a percentage of their earnings to nonprofits through Sit a Dog, Save a Life. When you book with a sitter who has the Rover Donation Badge on their profile, you're helping dogs in need, right here in Philadelphia.

We're proud to be supporting over 200 organizations across the U.S., including the City of Elderly Love.
