Dog Boarding In San Francisco

The Dog Kennel Alternative

Dog owners in San Francisco love booking pet care with sitters on RoverRover. Over 14,104 pet owners have reviewed sitters in the San Francisco metro area, giving them an average rating of 4.93/5 stars. Booking dog boarding can be super affordable, even in a city like San Francisco. Trust us, we think you’ll be pleasantly surprised. Curious what it might cost to book a night of overnight boarding with Rover? Check out our average dog sitting rates to get an idea before reaching out and starting a conversation with a sitter near you in the San Francisco area.

Just because you have a busy schedule or an out-of-town trip planned doesn’t mean your dog has to go to a noisy kennel. You can easily find and book a loving, trustworthy dog sitter that offers luxury boarding and in-home care for your dog. That means your dog isn’t locked in a cage—they’re snuggled on the couch or running around the dog park with someone who will treat you dog just like you do, like family. You can meet your dog sitter before booking with them to ask questions, get to know them, and make sure they’re the perfect fit for you and your dog’s unique needs. Whether your dog longs to go on energetic runs on the beach or hikes in the surrounding hills or would rather just chill out on the couch eating treats (in moderation, of course), your dog’s perfect in-house sitter in beautiful San Francisco is on Rover.

San Francisco is a booming city—the second most-densely populated in the United States, in fact—but it isn’t just full of people, it’s full of thousands of pets too. We love how pet-friendly this incredibly city by the bay is, and it’s the perfect place not only to own a pet, but to book an experienced dog sitter. The city is equally famous for miles of rolling hills as it is for classic cable cars to help visitors and natives alike navigate this fascinating city. San Franciscans enjoy miles of amazing off-leash dog parks and free-roaming beaches to let your canine companion blow off some steam while making new friends. No matter where you live in San Fran, from Parkside to Nob Hill, there’s a sitter listed on Rover right in your neighborhood. That’s because this city is packed full of dog lovers, so you’re bound to find a great match for you and your dog around just about every corner.

Getting started on Rover is simple: type in your zip code, choose dog boarding as your service, browse 100s of sitters near you, and begin a conversation with your dog’s perfect match.
