Prices vary greatly around the country. I would call a local business and ask as though you were going to board the same dog with them, then price yourself accordingly. Just don't forget that boarding kennels have insurance. Insurance that covers the dog should it be lost, stolen, injured, poisoned, have a stroke or heart attack, etc.
My boarding kennel charges 18 a day for small dogs. My private pet care business I charge 50. Thats for two 30 minute walks/playtime. Usually 40 minutes each visit. Additional time is 20 dollars a day extra. Additional pets 5. I also live in Connecticut, it costs alot more to live around here. |
I charge $20 a day. I take care of 2 goats, 1 horse and their cat. The woman I got the job through does pet sitting for a living and she told me what I should charge. I've been taking care of this persons animals for 2 years when they go away on vacations.
