Dog Boarding In San Jose

Dog owners love Rover's San Jose dog sitters. 910 owners have reviewed sitters in San Jose, giving them an average rating of 4.81/5.

Wondering how much you can expect to pay for a night on Check out our average dog sitting rates to get an idea before you start a conversation with a sitter.

Sit a Dog, Save a Life

Sit a Dog, Save a Life lets you raise money for local dogs-in-need by doing something you do already... asking your friends, family and neighbors to watch your dog while you travel, instead of leaving him in a kennel! Look for sitters in San Jose with the Rover Donation Badge for one of these nonprofits, and a portion of your fee will be donated.

Northern California Sled Dog Rescue

NorSled rescues, fosters and finds homes for unwanted, abandoned and abused Northern breed dogs: Siberian Huskies, Alaskan Malamutes, Samoyeds, and mixes of these breeds.

NorSled works directly with shelters in most Northern California counties, and also if there is space, shelters in other Northern California areas, Central California and Western Nevada. In some circumstances NorSled may take owner surrenders, but they usually work through the shelter system. They work closely with other Nordic Breed rescues in other areas, and can refer owners in crisis to the rescue nearest them.

More on San Jose

San Jose, "Capital of Silicon Valley," may be the largest city in Northern California, but to us it's one of the most dog-friendly cities in California.

Aside from its wide selection of off-leash dog parks and dog-friendly restaurant patios, outdoor dog havens like Almaden Quicksilver County Park are a wonderful retreat in the spring months when wildflowers are in full bloom.

Peruse our selection of dog lovers for hire and find a loving dog boarding, dog sitters, and dog walking in San Jose while you're away. For more information, stop by our How it Works page. Your dog will love you for it. - Dog Boarding Community
