Pet Sitting VS Boarding – Price Comparison

Pet sitting has great advantages when it comes to your pets happiness and well being. But, it can also have price advantages if you have more than one pet. 

Pet sitting companies often don’t charge or charge very little to care for multiple pets. They main driver of cost in pet sitting is travel time to your home and the pay for great people you can trust being in your home.

Boarding Prices - Fort Collins

We do not recommend bringing your dogs to the kennel because kennels are much like the pound. Doggy daycare tends to increase bad habits like jumping and overly rambunctious behavior. You can see more in our Pet Sitting VS Boarding article.

  • Price increases for more than one cat

Ashcroft Kennels

  • $25 per day for one dog

South Mesa Kennels

Aspen Grove Kennel

  • $39 – 46 per day per dog
  • They also charge for administering medications and have a $15 dollar personality assessment. On top of that it will be $7 daily for medical treatment that they say is common from their group play.
