Boarding + Pet Care

Below you’ll find a list of boarding kennels, pet sitters, and dog walkers recommended by Team DINOS on Facebook. These pet care options have been helpful for their DINOS. Every dog is an individual and there are many types of DINOS, so please keep in mind that what suits one DINOS family, may not work for another. Happy Boogie

This list is a great place to start your search and there are a wide range of options below. Some companies offer in-home pet sitting and dog walking. Some offer small, private home-like boarding, while others are giant resorts with luxury packages. So do some exploring!

Contact boarding facilities and ask for a tour. Get to know the staff and find out how they handle dogs of varying temperaments and social skills. Determine if their training and handling skills are a good fit for your dog and in line with your own training/handling philosophies. Here are some questions to ask. Make an informed choice!

Looking for a dog walker? Here are some tips for finding one for your DINOS.

This list is always expanding, so be sure to check back and if you’d like to recommend a boarding facility or pet sitter, please let me know: info@notesfromadogwalker.com
