How Much Does Pet Sitting Cost vs Boarding

HELP! I can’t decide! Should I board my pets or hire a pet sitter!

Let’s take look at your options.

Doggie Day Cares:

These fun filled, artfully decorated facilities offer an indoor and sometimes outdoor safe place for your dogs to be entertained all day. Usually the dog to person ratio is 1:10. Some will ensure that your pooch gets nap time in a quite area after a robust playtime.  There are several in Hillsboro to choose from.  If you are considering this option for your dogs during the day you can expect to pay about $25.00 per day. Some offer ½ day options too.

 Dog Boarding can come in many settings. Veterinary clinics, homes, and large facilities designed to entertain your pooch with swimming pools, beautifully decorated rooms and special beds for your dog to lay on and watch TV!  You can expect to pay $25 to $75 per day for 1 pet.

Pet Sitters and Dog Walkers

Pet Sitters prices vary in the Portland Metro Area and prices are generally $18 – 25 per visit per pet.  If you have more than one pet or need medications administered you might pay $1 to 5 dollars more.  Some pet sitters will even sleep over with your pets. Your daily rate will cost $20 to $75 depending on number of visits per day and other factors.

Hillsboro dog walkers charges $22 – $25 per visit.  The amount of time spent for each visit is usually around 30 to 45 minutes but can be longer if this is what is needed. We offer One Price, Full Service, Guaranteed!
