Finding the best place to board your dog in Phoenix can be a daunting task, especially when you likely have a lot of other things on your plate to do in anticipation of your trip out of town.
When looking for the best dog boarding place for your furry friend, it’s important to keep in mind a few factors: Does the place have positive reviews? Do they have a relationship with a local Phoenix vet who can take care of your pup in case something comes up? Do they require basic vaccinations to make sure your dog and the other furry residents are protected?
With these questions in mind, here are the best dog boarding facilities in Phoenix.
Per night price: $50-$90
Does your dog love water play? If so, Second Home Pet Resort might be a great fit for your furry friend. This dog boarding facility in Phoenix has a canine Splash & Play Water Park that can keep your pup cool and entertained for an additional $15. The resort is also divided into individual dog pavilions, with each pup having their own bed. Caregivers will also take your pup to go to the bathroom four times a day, which is more than most boarding facilities.
The price ranges from $50 for a suite with no outdoor patio up to $90 for a spacious patio with an outdoor and TV where your pup can watch their favorite shows.
Per night price: $74-$104
D Pet Hotels is on the fancier side for dog boarding facilities, with suites that would rival any five-star human hotel. All suites come with flat screen TVs and range in size from 4’ x 9’ to 14’ x 16’, with the larger rooms boasting human-sized twin and queen beds.
The goal of D Pet Hotels is to provide a place for your pup that feels most like their (and your) home. While the price tag reflects the luxurious accommodations—the standard suite is $74 with the higher level suites coming in at $94 and $104 respectively—your pup will no doubt feel pampered at this facility, which also boast 24-hour oversight and includes daycare.
3. Dog Days
Price per night: $40
Dog Days is next door to Phoenix in Tempe, but offers cage-free pack play for its guests, which might be a good fit for your pup if they like long trips to the dog park. At Dog Days, your furry friend will have both indoor and outdoor play and also get some swimming and digging action. If you’d rather your pup be separate from other guests while boarded, however, this might not be the best choice for you.
Price per night: $60-$63 for daycare members; $60-$70 for non-members
Furry guests of Dogtopia spend 5.5 hours a day in the facility’s doggie daycare services, which take place in an open area off-leash space. Every playroom also has webcam access, so you can check in on your pup no matter where you are, provided you have an internet connection.
5. Camp Bow Wow
Price per night: $58-$85
Counselors at Camp Bow Wow are certified in pet first aid and CPR and take care of your pups with safety in mind. They also have webcams during daycare hours so you can watch your dog play in climate-controlled spaces and require all doggie campers to have a free “interview” to make sure there aren’t any behavioral issues.
The price range depends on whether you choose the regular individual “cabin” or if you go with the luxury cabin that includes a TV and personal webcam. There’s also no additional cost for medication administration, something that can be an extra charge at other boarding places.
6. Jet Pet @Phx
Price per night: $48-$81 depending on size of the dog
Jet Pet PHX is located close to the Phoenix airport, which makes it a convenient choice if you are flying out of town. The 13,000-square-foot facility has indoor and outdoor play areas, including an artificial pet-friendly lawn that will keep your dog dirt-free during their stay. There’s also a $10 additional charge per night for bookings during peak seasons.
Price per night: $60
Phoenix Dogs 24/7 is another cageless dog boarding option. The establishment also has a human there 24 hours a day and they have indoor and outdoor play areas. A socialization visit is required before boarding, but that’s something that should be reassuring given the fact all the pups play together at all times.
Price per night: $35-$60
At Boulder Falls, all rooms have blankets and bedding, and there's supervised playtime throughout the day as part of their daycare offering. Their outdoor play area includes some water play, too.
If you want to bring your pup here, the privately owned establishment requires a socialization visit first and has vaccine requirements. Rates vary depending on the size of the suite you choose, with the lowest price only available to smaller dogs.
Price per night: $38-$46
Danmar isn’t as fancy as some of the other luxury pet hotels in Phoenix, but it offers clean, safe facilities at a more affordable price. Unlike some other facilities, Danmar never has a peak season surcharge and their daycare service is included in the boarding price. Medication administration is also free of charge, and you can add on an exit bath at the end of their stay for an additional $17.
