Pet boarding is when your dog stays at a boarding facility with other dogs. These places provide your dog with a kennel or sleeping area to stay in and have staff available for walks. Some facilities also offer playtime, so your dog won't be cooped up in a kennel.

Dog boarding can give you peace of mind that your dog is being looked after around-the-clock when you’re gone. You don’t have to worry about relying on a pet sitter to show up as scheduled. Instead, you can rest assured that your dog will be fed, walked and played with on a regular basis. Boarding also gives your dog a chance to socialize if the place offers playtime. This is a great option for dogs with high energy levels who enjoy interacting with others.
